Thought-streams





Perpetual discourse, this stream
Rushes in want, worry and dream
Accusation and worship surge
Filling mute fathoms with their splurge
Dawn, noon, wakeful middle-night
We bear the potence of their plight

Word touches word and shapes a thought
Faith, fear, hate, love and longing caught
Within its vortex endlessly
This torrent rushes to a sea
Where none can ever truly find
These oceans carried in the mind

…save for the thought that wears a noise
To tell of living’s grief and joys
Yearning, learning and wanderlust
Echoes in hollows filled with trust
Incessant urge from mystic deep
Word follows word until we sleep

Ever wish you could just turn them off...like in the middle of the night when they crowd away sleep?
What are your first 'thought-words' when you awake?
We ought to give careful thought to what we think...
Pray we have a constructive, healthy thought-stream...the pulse of everything else we do!
