The Road My Thoughts Lead To

Laid up in bed these couple of days,
I’ve seen the passing of the sun’s rays.
Much time to think as each night time nears,
I search the state of my hopes and fears.

The rule of nine guides these lines I write
even as these words now come to light.
The words before me or so they seem
could make this poem a writer’s dream.

It would be nice with nothing to do
but sit and write till each day is through.
No permanent sanctum do I find
in this with other things on my mind.

I’ll write these words as they come to me
and take advantage of time that’s free.
Still, other things contend for “my view”
so I’ll search the road my thoughts lead to.

    Very Nicely Said, in such a rhythmic Flow... A Joy To Read and The Storyline is most accurate for Poets, that is how we compose, by searching the road, thoughts lead to... (Lovely Ending) ... MoonBee

    Indeed. When one has somehow a time of rest, it is a good time for reflection and also learning. Very well written. Thanks for sharing. I hope you are feeling alright. God bless, Caroline.
