Pondering pandemic

The mind
Rattle the cage
Wake the beast
It's there
Taming my thoughts
Is something
I need to do
It's unpleasant
But the soul
Needs pruning
To be whole again

  3. the mind is the most powerful thing in the human world. It has the power to calm others but can also be the means of destructing one's self.

    Beautiful words!

  7. your mind --thoughts in it.
    the cage -- the bear (pandemic) in it.
    I can understand your wish to cut away the unpleasant thoughts about the pandemic.
    Beautiful imagery!

  10. Dearest Regine,
    Just staying occupied with valuable work/writing/reading is the BEST.
    Don't give the scare-devils any grip!
    Hugs,
