Poem: A Thought, I Wonder....Land!

Updated on April 24, 2013
Source

I Wonder......

Do you ever wonder about thoughts? That statement, in itself, is pretty confusing. THINKING ABOUT THOUGHTS!
As a child, I used to wonder if there is another person within me .... The one that thinks! I think and I talk - but there are not always the same, are they? So, here are some 'thoughts' to think about and to add to that thinking list of yours..... ENJOY :)

Source

Where Am I?

Touching the wall, I cannot fall...
Looking up, standing tall.
Is it there....the wooden door?
I turn around, I am sitting down,
Or am I Standing on a twisted floor!

So short and sweet life seem so weak,
Do I cry, or hear the sound?
The road that I follow, are the bricks all yellow?
Why does it seem like a familiar ground.

I wonder why, the memory slate seems so dry,
As if I have not existed, or have ever been....
Is it me or have I reached that wonderland,
That was always heard of, but never seen!


Confused?

Like a lady fly I must go high, no reason to be low,
Show me the sight, the mountain's tall hight,
Do I care to take that flight,
And wonder why the wind whispers so slow!

Roll over thoughts, you are just not
What I imagined you would be!
You wander around with out a ground,
And I am suppose to be both you and me?!

If all this is too confusing for you,
then whatever should you do?
Sit back and relax, and read it all back....

Do you see, now do you see?
You and I are both at a lost,
You are as bad as me!

Where can my thoughts be?

Save A Tree!

      And all the times that you are alone

      are measured by

      the rings within your bark

      Though you truly made your mark

      a tree must be a tree

      Don't you love its ability...

      To just to be... mon ami?

      Hi La keep making me on a THING imagining being a vocal goat:

      A thought, my kingdom for a thought that counts

      1,2,3,4.…..and what number the future holds

      My thought does dwell on the moon

      A piece that fill the universe on dark nights

      Where is the poli who thought I counted

      11,12,13 ….. My luck for poli sense ends at 13.

      LaThing,

      Oh, I'm so glad I came looking and landed on this hub of yours. I'm at such a time and place in my life where I do very much thinking, I think about my thinking and wonder if my thinking is normal thinking thoughts! Sometimes I just go on a thinking binge and find myself, snapping out of it, then try to make sense of the thoughts that I'd just had and wondered where they had come from, though they seemed to make sense while I was thinking them. I'm still kind of in awe after reading this, so if I don't make any sense, please hold it against me :D

      I do love how you just put it all out there and let go... truth and beauty at its finest!

      All the way across the board and sharing too!

      Hugs, girly!

      Cat

      Loved it! I guess I'm not the only one that thinks that way. The end was great "where can my thoughts be?

      Save a tree"

      I don't know if you meant it that way but that how I read it!

      Thanks for sharing!

      Sometimes I wonder if the epi-man thinks too much,lol, but that said, thinking is not necessarily a bad thing because it leads to profound poetic thoughts like what I've just read on this sacred page of yours.

      It is thoughts like these that make a true poet; not the technicalities and form...but the creativity of thought...and the guts to express it in its pure form.

      The brightness of the dragon that filled the room with the words that were missed.......... Is it the thought that counts, or the words that are written..... Or more than eyes can see? But the comfort that we find in our thoughts no one can take that away. I consider my thoughts to be in a brightly lit up hollow space, where darkness doesn't exist :)

      BTW, Good to see you, PD

      I am all around the world, the moment I shut my eyes... Found passing through what some foolishly consider to be, time... Heard only from within... in a faithful pulse... I wonder why such thoughts are so energetic and so fertile... and never, ever seeming to be so far away, as to not care... or not appreciate the true value of the words, when only a hollow darkness exists? Viva l'tete... may it never be lost to dark thoughts! Nice work btw... take care
