Circles

Circles by lolamouse
Spinning thoughts
on an exhausting journey
going nowhere
Stuck
on an obsessive mind carousel
Mad horses racing
to a nonexistent finish line
while the music plays on
and on
and on

I LOVE this one. Maybe because I can relate to it...

Mad horses racing
to a nonexistent finish line
while the music plays on
and on
and on

That is one AWESOME finish!

Love it Lolamouse! I like the image and your poem is very good! Sorry I haven't been around lately but the weather's been so lovely here I've been outside enjoying it. I have wrote a few blogs though...tee hee! I had started another blogspot but decided to stick with BIW after all. I have too much nice work there to start again. Are you on Google+? If so, I'd love to put you in my circle. Have a good Thursday my friend. ♥

Lolamouse, from your poem I can hear that music playing ON and ON and ON. You've portrayed the 'stuck' journey very well.

We all have a common thread we're pulling or hanging on to here. Sometimes I think of my thoughts and journeys like those bubbles from a toy bubbler that when they come together they meld into each other and become one or a bigger bubble.

The 'wild horse' thingy, though, is interesting especially for those of us who can relate to that concept within us. Oooh, Oooh, I want to be a 'wild palomino', can I, huh, huh?

Music is always playing on and on and on for me.

Great piece, mi amiga
