Body and mind

Body and mind

A Poem by Caroline B A Maguire
"

Time tricks our minds and traps our bodies

"
Our bodies are planted on the ground 
In the present moment
Of now
While our minds skirt around 
The trap of time 
Tripping into the past 
Leapfrogging towards an uncertain future
Above the joy
Beneath the sorrow
Front to see
Back to feel
Never here
Never knowing in our thoughts
That place 
From where our bodies 
Cannot escape

Time is an illusion to begin with
Imo the past present and future
all run together in the mind.I like
the leapfrogging toward an uncertain
future

I don't think there are too many
absolutes to rely on other than death
and taxes and perhaps the bible according
to individual beliefs..

Nicely penned piece

The trickery of the mind. Old memories can sneak in and take us back. I liked the way you used the language. You made the reader think and ponder your words. Thank you dear Caroline for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.
