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 ...

           ~~~

Love this one dear Lisa, specially the first verse, it's cleverly written. your whole poem paints what a thought is, how it's clear sometime, confused at the others, sometimes we are able to describe it, other times we can not. Brain is as the heart, powerful with no limits. our thoughts are the products and fruits of it.

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. :)

Sometimes I can paint an image laid with words. But just like you say other times it's like catching smoke.

This contained a wonderful theme and intriguing insight into the workings of the mind. Thoughts so transitory and constantly evolving evaporate or become distorted sometimes creating false memories. A wonderful write I loved it.

Our thoughts are private and cannot always be translated directly into words. You have written a lovely poem Lisa covering this tricky subject.
All the best,
Alan

too cool Ms.Lisa ... makes me think of several things but one especially .. that place between sleep and wakefulness ... where those thoughts are prolific and one can never catch them no matter how long the tails ... i really like your theme .. original ... well thought out if i may add. ;))))))))))))))))))))
it also reminds me of the eternal scientific pursuit of where does consciousness come from????? it's been pondered since the late 1600s as far as written papers about it go ... crazy eh!? love your closing verse .. as those thoughts go dancing so happily ...flitting about like faeries one will never ever touch let along capture .. really good stuff says i!

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.

thoughts do not stick with us for long; they flee like the seagulls over the ocean; they are quick and meaningful, but tend to run... as words hover above our thoughts, then disappear. the mystery of the thought ....they are like a kaleidoscope, sometimes too abstract to recall. Words are more concrete, impressionistic. A very "thought-provoking" poem. Thanks for sharing.
Best, Betty

Gee
Capturing those thoughts and translating them into words can be the hardest thing to do and can often leave us frustrated that we are not communicating them to others how we wish., even though they are often received very well by the reader.
Are any of us ever 100% happy with our final offering, hmmmm.
Again enjoyed your words Lisa
