Free Thought

thoughtI hurl new fresh bursts of thought
into the air
it seemed a good idea to let it go
it’s rare they return so insistent
upon remaining through that sweet release
but, the mind is such an enigma

Sometimes full of rapid-fire sparks
which clench, spasm but then sorted
and sifted free the burdens we carry
for it to become spacious once more.

    Once cleared one gets to do what one does best! But it’s still pays to be wary! Nicely Bren

  5. I enjoyed this, Bren….new fresh bursts of thoughts into the air. That image will definitely stay WITH me.

  6. ah yes the ongoing process of discernment… entanglement and discernment once again…beautifully expressed and WOW what an amazing image, so perfect with your poem!

  7. Isn’t it a wonder how some days in meditation it seems easy to focus and then the next day those thoughts are just jumping all over the place. And so it is!

  8. Ah yes, we are all enigmas even to ourselves at times. Neat picture you posted with this–adds to the mystery of the poem. Happy Holiday to you.

  9. I loved this Bren, especially the first stanza—I know the second stanza is the point really, but the first one just rings my chimes–

  10. smiles…i like the thought of freing those thoughts to make room…let them come back or not and others to take their place…free you rmind and the rest will follow…i think i heard a song like that…smiles…

  11. Restless mind … writing my little heart out, healing that way … interestingly enough it only works when I write using pen and paper … from brain to hand to pen to paper. Season’s greetings, Bren and Chloe. Love, c.

  12. sorry, let’s try this again…

    the mind is definitely a fickle f(r)iend. I’m still waiting for mine to sort itself out.

  13. “but then sorted
    and sifted free the burdens we carry

    Thank goodness for that.

  14. I fell in love with the visual image of free thought! How connected! And then the process you describe so vividly and exactly. In such a way it is Ministry to be open to the messages and send them on in human tongue before being free to move again.

  15. You may hurl new fresh bursts of thought in the air, but you let your pen catch the magic on paper. And at least for me once on paper, once let go I can make room to create something new…Delightful piece.

    Thanks for visiting both of my offerings.

    I also like your illustration by Chet Phillips.

    Best of the season to you and yours.
