Sunday, 12/28/08 - "MY MIND"


From Christmas to Today
Mind goes "bong", "bong"

- - Back and Forth
- - From This to That
- - From Here to There

This means:
It's all about me
- - Nothing is about me

Give me isolation to the extreme (stay at home, watch T.V., read, sleep, T.V., read, sleep)
- - Give me friends to love, talk to, enjoy time with, be with, comfort, be comforted by

Give me simplicity to the max, life in black and white
- - Give me life in technicolor

Retirement from blogging
- - Coming out of retirement

Inside a mind can be a
dangerous place to spend time!

I step as if outside myself
Staring in to see
The many simple landmarks

Known specially to me

But before me stretches long and steep

A passage of debris
A cluttered, junk-filled corridor
Items tossed disorderly

A faint glow penetrates the waste

Spreads slowly to the fore

Then with a sudden gale storm force

The light sweeps clear the way

And the passageway's left filled and bright

The wasteland's disappeared

The tunnel way my oft-trod route again

A known and trusted way

I have to admit that the poets who are here in the blogosphere amaze me; this poem just blew my socks off; I read it three times; once outloud to my DH. Thank you so much!

Gabriella, does DH mean "Designated Hitter"? If ya don't know, ask your DH -GRIN!

Prayer Girl, I've known you for nearly twenty years, and you still amaze me with the talents I did not see before.

Ya gotta keep on blogging, as embarrassing as it might be, some times.

Your DH. NOT your Designated Hitter!
