Ripples of thought

Pick me

Choose me

Focus on me

Thoughts jostle for attention

Crowding out

peace, balance and calm

Cutting short reflection

Erasing planning

Triumphing for one brief moment

Before sinking back

into the throng

The mêlée

The riotous dance

                Of thought

                                Of whimsy

                                                Of control

thoughts scattering

Scattering

                Regrouping

                                Reforming

                Coalescing

Thinking

                Speaking

                                Writing

Moving faster than the speed of light

Neurons zapping

A chain of reaction

Gliding

                Swooping

                                Flying

Falling

                Sinking

Stopping

                Drowning

Resting

                Resurfacing

Flitting here and there

Saying, ‘Catch me if you dare’

catch me if you dare

Laughing

                Crying

Whispering

                Shouting

Solid

                Misty

Flickering

                Shimmering

Flaming

                Doused

On

                Off

Chanting

                Beckoning

                                Glimmering

plants growing in the water

Hoping

                Praying

Believing

                Speaking

The future

                The past

                                The present

Gone

Creating

                Breathing

                                Aspiring

Breathing life

Now
