Flighted Thoughts and Journeys

Flighted Thoughts and Journeys

Journeys of the mind…

How broad the scope of thought,
that dances like a gypsy in the night,
around an ever-growing universe,
and how diverse the mind in seeking time
to somehow explain.

Pensive stance,
gazing into the romance of thought,
the unrequited machinations
of a soul seeking questions
to the answers in their heart.

Each path followed with trepidation,
other paths in tangent flow,
like roots forever branching
into microcosms of infinite truth,
and what do we know?

Serenely still in repose,
I cannot find my end,
my thoughts like clouds billowing,
transforming into myriad forms,
and I silent, cannot commend the dream.

My dull machine in all it seems,
just lost within this eternal flux,
and follow I might my hearts aspirations,
I can but accept what I must,
to know how small I am
within this enigmatic wonderland.

No matter my projections, my obsession,
I shall not know or win,
for this is beyond my everything,
yet strive I must to know myself,
one small piece to uncover,
within the journey given.

    We are but tiny specks in this huge universe, Tony. We just have to accept the things we can’t change, and change the things we can.

    True John, acceptance is all we can do in regard to things we cannot change. Cheers my friend, glad you appreciated the work.

    This ‘enigmatic wonderland’ such a great phrase. So many creative lines and images here, it gave such calm in it’s pondering, even as you express a sense of insignificance, an acceptance of that, an appreciation of the personal journey. Flows beautifully in thought and line. Love it.

    Your first stanza took me back in time, when I was about 10 and danced like a gypsy at night in my huge bedroom … ah! well, thoughts do journey in time. I love this verse, Tony. And what will be delivered when there is “a soul seeking answers to the questions in their heart”? Great line to ponder on. There you go again, making me ponder and wander. Great work indeed.
