    Random Thoughts

    Random thoughts running through your mind –
    Dig deep, dig shallow what will you find?
    Some good, bad, highs and lows and everything in between;
    Thoughts tumbling, twisting endless shifting –
    What does it all mean?

    Kaleidoscope of yesterdays –
    Hazy, shadows and dim instant replays.
    Moments better left alone –
    Pictures of times long past, people dead and gone.

    Slipping, sliding, and losing your grasp in an instant.
    You’re lost to the past mind spinning – going too fast.
    Slow down – take a deep breath ---
    Easy does it – exhale—what’s next.

    Sit up turn on the light…
    Grab a book --- get set for another sleepless night.
    Alternate suggestion: If you will –
    Grab a glass of water –and take a pill.
    Let it work its magic.

    Get peaceful, be still.
    Still those thoughts running through your mind;
    Think now only on current times –
    Not tomorrow or yesterday
    Just now this moment come what may.

    I've been there...I like your way to say it.

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
