   The lost thought

It was so quiet
creeping out from the disorder
into the back row
to wait a turn.
It went unnoticed
until I felt
the warm spot in the place
where it had been.

I listened,
hoping that an echo
lingered in the crowded hall
caught between the lines
borrowing time from some importance,
but it was to late.

This happens to me all the time! What a wonderfully creative way of explaining it!

Martie-
Oh, can I ever identify with this.
When that little thought has taken flight ...
I always hope for it to return.
Alas, it often doesn't.

Simply put, you're a magnificient poet !

I like how you explained this. I agree with Marge. Often it doesn't return!

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?
