Ideas Not!


“Don’t think!

Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It is self-conscious

and anything self-conscious is lousy

you can’t try to do things; you simply must do them.”

– Ray Bradbury

 

Imagine no ideas

Distinguished thinking not allowed

divergent thoughts detoured

Euridites not accepted

Audacity destroyed

sublime connections disconnected

 

imagine no ideas

discussions void of mindfulness

Einstein who?

The Theory of Everything,

What on earth does that mean?

words ambushed by stupidity,

Epitaphs blank, bleached

 

Imagine no ideas

no logical steps

no reasoning,

naked moments,

empty poems,

censure,

real fake news.

I cannot imagine.

 

Oh my, I must have dozed off.

I just thought of this great idea!

 

 

The Storms in My Mind


Clouded sky

I  have to get rid

of the storms in my mind

It has to be today

As the sun shines

to remind me

that  better days will be

 

I have to get rid of the storms in my mind

the violent winds of yesteryear

beat against the memories

I try to keep safe

 

I have to get rid of the storms in my mind

the winds scatter hopelessly

to cleanse the thoughts that torment us

the most

but I am still their host

 

I have to get rid of the storms in my mind

and it has to be today

when the rainbow zipped through the sky

(Oh my!)

to remind me

love cures all.

 

I have to get rid of the storms in my mind

It has to be today

It has to be today

 

I want to dedicate this poem to the many young people who suffer from depression. I met someone recently who impressed me so much but the storms in her mind are too strong.  Depression is very present in our nation. Learn to recognize the signs.
