RIVERS OF THE MIND

Partaking in random thoughts creates poem # 22 for Poetry Month

 

river flow

waves break against the walls of the skull

washing and cleansing

tides of creativity, devotion and love

flow from the right hemisphere

logic and wisdom

spill from the left hemisphere

waterfalls cascade down the brainstem

reminders to breath, heart to beat

the amygdala emotionally charged

with centuries of practise

erratic notions crashing in the depths of the mind

calmness hidden in the corals of the cerebellum

balances and coordinates

cerebral cortex reefs are brilliant with thought

attentive to the world in which it exists

optical illusions in the back ghetties

history of a life being held by a dam

drip

drip

go the memories

eroding the perception of time

drip

drip

neuroplasticity

creates rivers of change

streams of thought

ebb and flow

dreams

swirl

into

a

new

reality
