The Sunday Whirl ~ Wordle 519 ~ #Poetry

Thoughts streaming through my mind
Sounding like cats claws on a chalk board
Try as I might, I couldn’t make sense of anything
I had a free ticket for a weekend spa
I think about it was the best I could do
I felt a sharp pain at the back of my head
By rights, I should have gone to the doctor last week
Nothing I take does any good
I open the window to let a moth out
Wishing I could fly along side
They say the mind seeks its own comfort
A lame thought from someone’s mind
Second-hand thoughts rush to join the others
In the daily grind of what to do
If I were to fray completely, would I vanish?
Could I find that sheen, the old sparkle
That carried my name, in time to save me.

  1. These are universal feelings, Anita. I did laugh out loud at the line “They say the mind seeks its own comfort. A lame thought from someone’s mind.” The mind never seeks its own comfort. When the mind thinks it is comfortable it goes out to look for more discomfort.


we would love to hear from you!
