All day long
Poem, after poem, after poem
Went running through my head
Like too many little joggers
Running a never ending marathon.
Perfect I thought, I won’t forget that!
Beautiful I murmured as the poem picture emerged in my head.
Wow, I breathed, that one is a winner!
And then ..poof…oh, no
I forgot them all
As good as dust in the wind as
My brain released them back to the universe.
So maybe you will catch one of those poems
A free flying consciousness in the universe
Hopefully you will wrap it up prettily in writing
And secure it with a tight and shiny ribbon
Then I will wonder, why does this sound so familiar?
Of course, it is because it flowed through me too
And I will thank you and practice gratitude
For your catching all of the ones
That flew into and out of my head so quickly
And I will love how you evolved them
Such magic they were then, and such magic they will be again.
