draping my thoughts on a wire,
freeing the mind, i survey the sky
looking quizzically for answers,
willing it to shed wisdom.
i droop my head to the earth,
asking the same questions.
rough surface ricochets it
back to my mind, unbroken.
turning to the raging river
i again try to end burden within.
nevertheless, flowing water
washes the thoughts, returning
it over again. i stop wandering
pause a while, reflecting over.
suddenly the cobwebs clear
making me feel so liberated.
Some days are such a burden....
