Sometimes I'll have a thought and I'll jot it down for later. Well, sometimes I get back to them and sometimes not. Then when I finally do, often times it's not enough to become a poem, or I've lost the train of thought. I call them "Blind" thoughts.


Writing feeds my passion
though my thoughts are often blind,
but putting them on paper
helps me clear my mind.
Beauty is only skin deep,
but ugly runs clear through.
Nasty is a trait,
but not one that flatters you.
Humor reduces stress,
though it’s really not a cure.
Sometimes it helps relieve
the pain one must endure.
Or maybe
Acting like a witch,
or that word that begins with B
not a good characteristic,
nor one we like to see.
Maybe even
The future offers knowledge,
memories stir the past,
weapons insure our freedom,
if we handle them with class….
Writing feeds my passion,
helps me clear my mind.
Still, after putting them on paper
my thoughts are often blind.

These could be Burma Shave signs. Too bad that's a bygone.

The Blind can't see the beauty
Through the lenses of their eyes
They can see beauty with their hearts
The way they also see our lies

These are much more than clever musings, Richard,
they are real and substantial thoughts that make me sit up
and pay full attention; i love in particular, "...ugly runs clear through"
and "weapons...if we handle them with class..."

I was once told by a fellow writer to never throw a thought or an idea away for if you hang on to it sooner or later it will grow into a poem or a song. Looks like that works for you too Richard.
