I Wonder

Sometimes, I sit there
and wonder. I think
as blue birds sing.
I get lost in thought
as church bells ring.
I drift away. I wonder
about things that
can’t be changed.
I wonder if I ever
broke out the cage.
I wonder about
the past. I remember
keeping track.
I wonder as rain
dances with thunder.
Sometimes, I sit there
and wonder. I forget
where I am. I fade
away before I
remember what
I was going to say.
Sometimes, I wonder.
Still. Silent. Content.
Sometimes, I wonder
where the time went.

11:25 PM

Welcome to my 11:25:

Where voices fade to silent

And ideas become alive.

Where I access my mind

and notice place and time.

My feelings arise like waves

as the darkness screams fear

But 11:25 comes and saves

My delicate mind year after year.
