Let Your Mind Soar


The rhythmic sounds of nature fill my ears.
The mind dances with thoughts of yesteryear.

To escape into the wind for but a moment eases the mind.
The stress of the day fades into a calming feeling sublime.

The thoughts seem to suspend in the air above.
Captured by the mind as if gliding on the wings of a dove.

Many say to look to the future not to relive the past.
I believe that a glimpse is healthy and should be encouraged to last.

We spend our days focused to organize tasks.
Yet continued movement will dull the blade unless sharpened without the mask.

Imagination is the key that lights the path in pursuit of the dream.
For one must break the mold and let the mind run free to taste the cream.

It starts with a deep breath as one closes their eyes.
Listen to the sounds in the background and let your mind sigh.

The first step starts the journey down the enlightening course.
As visions of grander are released from the source.

Take but a moment to allow your mind to soar.
High above the mountains across the teal seas to a place you adore.

    - Your beautiful poem gives the reader something to think about - especially like this line: "For one must break the mold and let the mind run free to taste the cream" - A clever poem Gregory !!!! - oxox // Anne-Lise :)

    So glad you saw my words in that way for that is why I write. I write of passion, beauty and the quest for the eternal rush that lifts the mind and heart high in the sky to places yet unseen. I want the reader to experience my adrenalin and make it their own :) thank you so much for taking the ride with me my friend. :)

    I do the same thing when I want to write poetry. I need to get rid of all distractions, and just be by myself...A very calming and relaxing poem to read. I enjoyed the imagery, as well. Really good work, Gregory!...You might like to read my poem titled, "Sanctum". It has a similar theme to this one...Thank you very much for the great comments. I really appreciate it!

    Thank you very much Kelly. I love when I am in the zone whether it be when inspiring words dance in my head or snowboarding Park City , UT or mile 16 of a marathon. I crave it. Probably why I hate sleeping I don't won't to miss anything - lol
