Thoughts

A Poem by Lisasview
"

Thinking out loud

"




      Thoughts ....

    Mystery of thought;
    the thought ... 
    but a mystery.

    Never to be truly 
    captured in words.
    For words often lose 
    true meaning
    of the thought ...

    Words glide lightly 
    over the surface
    of the thought ...

    The thought ...
    held captive within us;
    for a mere instant then, evaporates,
    as quickly as it appeared.

    Now - but a mystery 
    that escapes us ...
    As one thought;
    steps quickly ~ over another;
    overlapping, so cleverly.

    Thought upon thought ...
    leaving no void.

    Even as we sleep, 
    our thoughts have a
    light of their own ...
    dancing about, leaving 
    us with dreams 
    and a mystery ...

           ~~~

I am, therefore I think...okay, so not exactly the "cogito, ergo sum" of Descartes but it's hard to "be" without thinking. It reminded me slightly of the preface to the short story, "The Body" by Stephen King which was later made into the movie, "Stand By Me". In the preface, King says "The most important things are the hardest to say, because words diminish them. It's hard to make strangers care about the good things in your life.” I very much enjoyed the read. Thank you for sharing your "Thoughts". Bless, F.

So very true about the thoughts and how they seem to travel about. They can be clever as the wind. You did a great job at this piece!

Hi Levi,
Thank you so much for your review..
I really appreciate it..Traveling thought.. read more
Very nice and thought provoking write. I liked it. I wonder how many stray thoughts that amount to nothing go through our heads everyday? The noise of it can drown you. But we sit down with intention and hope for a series of thoughts to strike like repeated lightning in a thunderstorm. Sometime it's hooray and sometimes it's nay. Have a good night, Lisa. CD

Painting and poem are awesome. Food for thought(Opppsss). I used your title. Very true and well said. You are digging deeper into the human mystery. Might be that thoughts start in the spiritual world and then manifest themselves in the physical realm??? Just a thought came to me(Opppssss) again.

Thoughts seem independent of us. Entities unknown. Alive on their own. I enjoyed this poem so much!

Those thoughts so personal to us that can linger or dissipate into thin air at will. They enter uninvited and they leave only when they are ready. Some of them are so intrusive. I like your lines here very much Lisa. A good subject for a poem.

" thoughts have a
light of their own" this is an interesting line.
One can deduce that what we are is the observers of thoughts. Make you think that maybe this is what is pointing the scriptures when they talk about the omniscience of God.

Nice to meet you!

Great!! Good to hear..
As though thoughts were moths flitting and fluttering about in our mind, as we, in good attempts, try to catch them, but find it futile. This, to me, is why trying to write a poem is often so difficult.

Why do those ideas seem to evade us when we try to construct something of interest to others. It is something I've struggled with forever.

This is the first poem I've read by you, Lisa, and I enjoyed it very much. Any poem that allows us to see or think is a good one to me. :)
