A Poem by Debbie Barry

A random idea, captured from my stream of thought.


Thoughts fleet;

They race,

And then are gone.

They disappear

As though they've never been.

To capture them,

I write them down;

The fleeting thoughts

Are my soul’s sound.

Oh how I can relate to this! I have two notebooks where I jot down things that come to mind. Then when I get writers block, I search thru my notes to find something that resonates at that moment. If I don't write it down, my ideas will definitely be just like you're describing here! *smile* Fondly, Margie
