Brain

cheer up 006

I must forget to remember

I must remember to forget

Confusion clouds the mind

Memories linger  –  yet;

Yet – when I request retrieval

You dissipate like a cloud

As I look to the sky with wonder

Your power I question aloud.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A re-release for those of you new to me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I combined my memory loss due to Lyme with clouds – grin.

      Thanks 🙂 It’s healthy occasionally to voice a little frustration with the inner workings (or in my case sometimes non-functioning) of our brains, grin.

    Maybe your forgetfulness allows you to float more freely in the now? 🙂

    AWE this is so beautiful. I was thinking about you yesterday as I watched the clouds. We are two cloud loving sisters! I love you B.

      Thank you for being so kind and supportive. Occasionally here on wordpress I worry I have forgotten someone, but most people here know I have Lyme and after a seven month break from here, they still remember, so everyone is always very kind about it. 🙂

    Hi B – I hope you don’t mind [and if you do, tell me and I’ll correct this], but I’ve used this photograph in a poem of mine at my page. [See http://ihatepoetry.blogspot.com/2016/02/raincloud-halibun.html ] If you don’t want your picture there, let me know and I will take it down. It inspired me to write something. Either way, I respect your decision, Thank you for your consideration, your friend, Buddah Moskowitz

    Gorgeous photograph & gorgeous poem both. Forgetfulness is, after all, the most tragically lovely part of the human experience; I’m so delighted that you took the time to capture it in this piece. Thank you so much for sharing. ❤
