revolving

I’m sure I hear a creak and squeal
as my mind turns it’s eternal wheel

busy thinking this and that
mad as white rabbits tea party hat

constantly churning
forward then turning

been distracted all day
the Beatles tune my dismay

revolving and revolting
this monkey mind of mine

no need for external entertainment
as my internal repertoire confinement

best tame my erratic thoughts
wiser than these worldly rorts

think I’ll start a revolution
meditation a viable solution!

d’Verse, revolution, Merril

  1. Love the poem! I had to make Sparky look at the photo og the garden trellis (wheels). He is on the hunt for some bicycle tires to humor me and build a visually appealing garden trellis!

  2. Brilliant poem, SweetKate! 🙂 I can relate! Your word-pics are right on!
    Mediation always helps me.
    Love your wheel-wall! 🙂

    PS…one time I researched John Lennon’s words on his writing their Revolution song. It was interesting.

  3. All part of the creative process, isn’t it–the thoughts going round and round in our heads? (I often entertain myself with songs in my head, too.) 😏. But then, you get a poem–or start a revolution, so it’s all worth it, right?

    Well done–I think the rhyming couplets added to the round and round feeling.

  4. Sometimes it is hard to slow thoughts.
    Cute monkey – I’ve got some frogs like that – they are used to go around the plant and a stake to support four of my pepper plants 😀

  5. I really enjoyed the rhythm of this.
    Meditation in motion
    To slow the cognition
    That leads to exhaustion
    A waste of consumption
    Viva la revolution
    Meditation in motion
