Chasing Thoughts


My days are spent
chasing thoughts
with pen and paper
to capture them
before they are lost
in the shape shifting
world of my brain.

she challenged us to tell about 
our own little world we live in.
But the catch was it must be
in thirty five words or less.

Hiya Susie,

So nice to see you out and about in the blogosphere, kiddo. Love your poem. Also love the idea of brain as shape shifter, a much better view than early Alzheimers, which I worry about. I will now just tell my sister my brain is shape-shifting!

I like the shape shifting. And I'm like this, too, when I have an idea, I usually have to get it down on paper fairly soon, or lose it. Nice to see you back!

This is fabulous, Susie. I love the idea of chasing thoughts. I can really relate to it.
Hope you are getting stronger every day.

You are the cat, the cat is your poem jar, shift again and it's indeed your brain stimulated by the chase to catch before they are lost. (27 words)

This is very good a description of catching an idea of our own. High Energy.

Isn't this true of any worker of words? Nicely done!
