Paint a Picture With Your Mind

Paint a picture with your mind
Dust out your cluttered head
Close the outer eye and open 
Imagination’s keenest eye within

See now grassy hills that rise and fall
See the crisp blue stream that winds along
Now the downy clouds reflected in
The water far below its floating waves

Hear the sparrow as he trills his song
Crisply over lofty trees of fir
Listen as the brook sings back the tune
Of sparrow’s joyous song of sweet refrain

Never would one be alone if when
Creativity takes him such a place
He could see and hear and touch and taste
The joys which offered elsewhere can be his

If only in his mind’s eye, he can go
Locations that his fancied thoughts would fly
Nowhere is beyond limit for him,
Whose inventions take such grandiose flight

    A beautiful poem and wonderful message. Sometimes it is so difficult for me to quiet my mind and travel, but when I do, well I think it actually lowers my blood pressure! Children are best at doing this I do believe. Ah, to be young again. Love, Shar

    Sometimes when I can't fall to sleep...I do this very thing...I try to take my mind to such a tranquil place as you describe. Sometimes it does really help bring a sense of peace. Nicely written, Donna. Love, Carrie
