Oblivious Contemplation

Oblivious Contemplation

A Poem by mae23

I read poetry

Upside down

On my bed.

My head where

My feet should be,

My feet resting

On my pillow.

The fan blurs

My vision.

Focus.

Let the music

Wash over my body.

Calm,

Stay calm.

Read the words

And understand

Their meaning.

Focus.

Worn pages

With creases

Take effort to turn.

What is that?

Focus.

Let go

And stay here.

Focus.

This is very good! I totally get the picture & the feeling of it. I love that your observations are both original & relatable. Perfect word crafting to capture that feeling of reading ANYTHING over a few times but not staying plugged in to it! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Nice thoughts and places described in the poem. I read best in noisy places. Hard to stay focus when we are fighting to read. Thank you dear friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

So simple yet so relatable. I really enjoyed this. It was both calming and sharp, like thoughts manifesting quickly, at the same time. I think many people who enjoy reading and poetry have felt this. Very well written!
