don’t think, feel.

This from Kim at Writing in North Norfolk for this evenings dVerse Quadrille #18

Here’s how to Quadrille:

– Write a poem of exactly 44 words, including the word cloud.
– Put your poem on your blog and link back to this post.
– Link it up to our Mr. Linky.
– Visit other blogs. Enjoy some amazing poets. Comment. Come back later this week and write another one, and visit some more. Comment some more. Create as many poem clouds as you please. I’ll be reading all week.

thinking my way through emotion

is like trying to catch air

not possible

not ever

and yet

my mind thinks on as if

by some chance occurrence

it might

stumble upon a solution

that it can never see

as it is clouded

by itself

  1. Hi Paul, I’m so pleased you’ve come back for a second shot! I love the vibrancy of the photograph – the clouds are amazing.
    It’s true, thinking your way through emotion is like trying to catch air. Why do we find emotions so difficult to deal with? Animals don’t seem to have that problem. I’m sure my brain has a life of its own, over which I have no control. I think we just have to sit back and enjoy the ride, wherever it takes us.

    • I practice mindfulness to help me remain in the moment and be open to just what is. The mind is what it is too. Thanks for the lovely comment. Not my photo sadly and this theme gives me no edit caption space so I am going to have to add footnotes to all my blogs one by one to credit photographers who are not me…or swap ll pictures so they are mine.

  2. A beautiful photograph and in esoteric teachings emotions are often symbolised by water. The title of your quadrille says it all and thoughts can cloud what the feelings are telling us.

  3. I like this cloudy view. As a “Feeler,” I sometimes wish I did more thinking. 😉 Grass is always greener, perhaps…or always see the cloud from both sides.

    • ha…I see what you did there 😉 I think my point is that, as a thinker, I recognise the futility of trying to think my way through emotion, rather than let it be. Thinking of course has it’s place.
