Midvein

midvein s

Each thought leads to branches
without signposts or landmarks to guide the way.
It doesn’t bother me
because my stories travel

within their own lodes.
Each thought leads to branches–
sometimes empty, sometimes overflowing,
tangled and obvolute.

I pause to watch anything, everything
that catches me in its web.
Each thought leads to branches–
I can’t count high enough.

I don’t know if I belong here,
or which way points to where I go.
My destination lies somewhere beyond journeying–
each thought leads to branches.

My response, a bit late, to Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above.  This has been a chaotic week, and we’re only halfway there…

Another quatern, another circle.  I am on repeat.

    It does feel like this week has gone for an unusually long time and yet,at the same time, it is already November here in Oz! I like your poem. Each thought leads to branches …. yes, yes, yes. Conclusions and definitive answers seem very light on at present.

    As always, Kerfe, your use of form, language and colour capture something far deeper and beyond the obvious.

    I love the circling and the branching.
    This sounds like me–each thought leading to branches and circling around. And I feel like there’s this thing about trees and branches hovering and circling around me this week–well, last week into this week. Perhaps there is a message the trees are trying to impart. Thank you, Kerfe.

    Keep on circling and repeating. You have made the quatern your own, and the circle 🙂

    Branches – what a great metaphor for our thoughts processes!

    I like how you took in those overhead branches, an element of the photo that I hadn’t considered.

    Ah, yes, branches fan out like thoughts. Beautifully expressed. Your art sphere looks like a planet.
