A strange thing is happening in Southern California in July – It’s raining as I write these words! We desperately need the water, so this is a wonderful gift on this Poetry Monday. For those of you out there in search of your glasses as they sit atop your head, I hope you enjoy the following poem. Be well.
Peace of mind
Have you seen my mind?
No? Oh please be kind and do help me find it.
I merely meant to change it but in that split-
second time it seems that I lost it.
And what if I’ve left my mind open?
I can’t think of what I’d do with someone else’s
thoughts on my mind – so please would you mind
helping me find mine?
I tried to keep my mind on the task at hand,
but I got distracted. My mind may have wandered away.
It’s done that before. I’m afraid now my thoughts may
be scattered, my mind in pieces on the floor!
Oh, just a little peace of mind would do.
From that I could make my mind up anew.
But now, I’m so out of my mind completely –
Could you please re-mind me what’s true?
