Mind

by alka mendiratta   Oct 23, 2015


Waves of thoughts
Making momentous ripples
Tossing up and down

Holding the pleasant
Letting go the unpleasant

Mind-the dream catcher
So powerful to withhold

Bouncing with delight
Wisdom courage compassion
We endow

    Wow this is fabulous and has a real deep meaning behind it I feel.

    I like this opening stanza because the use of ripples shows that thoughts are always going in and out of your mind. Great imagery.

    Holding the pleasant
    Letting go the unpleasant
    ^^
    These lines tell me that there are thoughts you want to hold onto forever but other thoughts you want to let go but it doesn't work like this. We can sometimes forget the good and hold not the bad. I think there is a 'of' missing between go and the though.

    I love this part because yes, the mind is like a dream catcher it catches all good and bad whether you want it to or not but I believe it's what we do with those thoughts that make us strong.

    Bouncing with delight
    Wisdom courage compassion
    We endow
    ^^
    I like the ending because we are our own strength and this shows that no matter what life throws at us we should thrive.

    Take care, Em

    First off its always nice to read your poems for each one of your write holds a message for life and a bit of wisdom!

    Waves of thoughts
    Making momentous ripples
    Tossing up and down

    ^^This is a nice opening with vivid imagery. All those thoughts bouncing up and down like a ball!

    Holding the pleasant
    Letting go the unpleasant

    ^^Yup sometimes there are catches we can't catch and let them go, then there are times we hold them..and they become a memory. I like this part :)

    Mind-the dream catcher
    So powerful to withhold

    ^^Here to me it says even in all that mist the dream catcher like a watcher who stands guard and gives us the goodness. This part shows the strength of this thing.

    Bouncing with delight
    Wisdom courage compassion
    We endow

    ^^A nice well rounded end of what life is all about I guess. Through it all we experience and we learn...nicely penned Akka!!
