Where Did it go?

I had a great thought this morning.

I even asked a pithy question about it.

It was wise!

It was funny!

It was probing and deep!

And, yet!

It has left me.

I can’t tell you how many golden thoughts I’ve lost.

When my mind has teamed up

With a few rebel moments

To bury my gold.

In the darkness of me.

With any luck they’re preserved

In a time capsule

To be discovered again

When I am in need of joy or wisdom.

And I will make sure to write them down for posterity’s sake.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else.

I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
