It is our fate from birth

that we may never escape our own thoughts.

Fractals of the mind flow with pretzel logic,

traveling inward and outward simultaneously.

Telepathy from the void

shrouded in audible silence.

A cacophony in a raindrop heavy as Stonehenge.

Bits of useless information

searching for random places to come to rest.

An altered state of

complete awareness.

Contemplating the many layers of

our destiny written in sand.

Words pouring out in rivulets,

flowing in all directions

toward the blank page.

Waiting for a moment of clarity

while reggae rhythms prance

endlessly like a mantra.


amniotic peace.

The quiet drift
just before sleep overtakes the night.

Breathe deeply and dream.

I like your metaphors a lot in this one. The title, too. Brings to mind the idea of discarded things, loss and waste.

Thank you. Basically it's a situation of thinking too much. How do you stay focused or quiet your noisy mind? At the time of this writing, I was working on improving my meditation practice.

Hm, I generally don't try to focus or quiet it, I'm grateful when it's noisy, and I write down as much as I can from that state.

I sometimes get frustrated by the noisy mind. When I write it all down there is till too much to sort through for what I am trying to write.
Which brings me to the question. what are you working on right now?
