Thoughts Adrift


A frenzy of words descend

Inexhaustibly streaming

Torrents, rivulets, dripples, a drop

A trickling faucet tapped wordless

Setting my mind adrift to places other than this

Unmoored, untethered from tidings

Waves lapping at memories

Drifting on watercolor dreams

A yachter catapulted

To distant shores of amour

A sigh, a breath, a fluttering sail

Blue waters rebooting dry synapses

A tidal wave of words

Blitzes mind’s shore again

    1. Thanks curioushart!! I enjoy the daily prompts and wish I had more time to be creative. Poet, I’m not, but it’s great practice.

    Evocative, and as everyone else has already said, simply beautiful. Well done! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi World Imagined. There are similarities definitely. I’ve come across many liked minded people on world press, mostly writers, and I’m always amazed. I will check out Ocean of Time and report back πŸ™‚

    2. I read Ocean of Time. I see the similarity. My poem was a reference to writer’s block. I’m writing my third novel and at the time I wrote Thoughts Adrift I was in the midst of writer’s block. Looking forward to reading more of your work. πŸ™‚
