Errant Thoughts


An errant thought crept up on me

I didn’t have a chance.

It made me climb a big old tree

And pushed me off a branch!


Then I waded in a pool

With mud and creepy crawlies.

Something wrapped around my leg

How somethings’ get their jollies!


Please! Oh please! Just let me out!

Let my thoughts be nice

A hunk of cheese, a glass of wine

Perhaps leave out the mice!


But I fear, it’s not to be

My thought is on a bender

It thinks of things I’d never do!

Could I just surrender?


Bungee jumping from a plane?

I think that thought is crazy!

Deep sea diving and no mask?

The world is getting hazy!


I was startled from the thought,

Alarms began to squawk!

Now the world is settling down

It’s just my bedside clock!

    Ahhh, dreamland. What a magical and sometimes scary place, and that damn alarm either ruins the moment or saves us from some horrible fate.

    Great poem Pam, and I love your painting.

    That is some bad ju-ju in those dreams. Try not to look at any surreal art with melting clocks while you are awake. Now as long as this missive does not accidentally infect my dreams you are off the hook.

        Good choice. Wish I have some advice on avoiding strange dreams. Then again I wish I had wisdom/advise on how to avoid even stranger realities. Did I go and say that outloud? Okay type ?
