You Are Where Your Mind Wanders

You Are Where Your Mind Wanders

Sitting

In a peaceful garden

Soundings of

Birdsong

Enter in

Interjected intermittently

By automobiles

Rolling on by

Under a warming blue

Sky.

But, the inner eye is

Elsewhere

Harbouring another care.

For

You are

Where your mind wanders

Where your heart ponders,

Regardless of the place

Occupied by your face.

Listen

Be still

Allow the sound to fill

You, with present concerns

Here and now.

Furrow not your brow

In troubles elsewhere

You cannot be there.

Let the scampering ants

Scarper away your troubles

And chance

Yourself here

Mind and heart clear.

Sitting

In a peaceful garden

Breathing free within

Allowing solar rays

To fall upon the skin

And sounds of birds on ear

Just hear

Here.

  1. Hi Simon – didn’t realise you’d had an op – or forgotten more likely …so I definitely hope you are healing … on the other hand you have time to let your mind wander and give us beautiful words … just occasionally these times come – a long journey, a minor op, or healing time … take care and let your mind wander – cheers for a peaceful weekend – Hilary

  2. Oooh gosh … I’m so glad to read you’re on the mend … take care and recover fully .. that’s great you can draft and write your poetry while recuperating and recovering … all the very best – Hilary

    1. I love the mountains. However, just now, my minds wanders to Christmas duties; to packing ready to move; to all the blog posts I’ve been missing from you, Damyanti, Belinda and all the crew. It feels I’m on a train that is passing all the lovely blog stations en route elsewhere 😦
