Compass for Thoughts

Words swirl like sugar in a glass
with thoughts attached to each crystal
my head, this molecular mass,
the mind is feeling so distal

Try to pinpoint but ricochet
stars shooting in the milky way
hold on to one in disarray
only to have it slip away.

Is there a compass I could use
pointing directions up or down?
Unveiling which words I could choose,
perhaps an adjective or nown

I need to un-clutter this mind
discover some tangible words
to express my feelings defined
so I might be finally heard.

      Thank you for your lovey comment. Hope you explore some of my more current poems. I think I am getting the hang of it.

    Thought I’d come by and read some of the early poems that I may not have read, or reread some I have read before. If I remember correctly, you were having shoulder surgery and were going to be out of commission for a while. Saw you come by to read last week? and I thought I’d return the favor.
