the elusive thought

In Thought

In Thought (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

the thought is there

and then it is gone

on the edge of consciousness

i can feel it

overpowering

my brain begins to run

trying to catch it…

anxiety builds…

my breath abates…

then…

it slips away…

oh…begin again…

let it go…

let it go…

perhaps a blessing awaits me

and the thought will return

to nudge me again

  6. When my thoughts elude me, I return to the room I’d been in when the thought first occurred to me. Then, “bingo.” Total recall. You captured that moment well.

    • Yes, lol, it always helps to retrace your steps! lol I actually was thinking of my *thinking* when I wrote that…that is the difficult part…not being able to find which part of my mind the thought wandered off to!

        It is hard to think about one’s thinking-the thoughts get tangled up. How nice for us that the ‘thought’ eluded you and that you were able to take a human frailty and make something meaningful for us to read and smile at in recognition.

  7. Immediately after I read this wonderful piece, my husband asked me something I normally am able to answer immediately. It was the strangest sensation.
