Fly-Away Thoughts

Where do errant thoughts Go when they fly away? Are they lost to me forever, Or do they later ricochet? Empty as the air must seem It’s filled with unsaid words, Ideas not yet written, that Swirl and wheel like birds Waiting for a hungry brain That’s searching for some food To urge a mind to action And inspire creative mood. Perhaps the trav’ling thoughts In the ether wilds will meet And, bouncing back to me, Will cause sensation sweet - A thread to weave a stream Of poetic lines and phrases So that I can write again With inspiration that amazes.
