Slow-Motion Forward

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “link.” Use it as a noun or a verb; use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!


Take me from one thing to another
I don’t understand the chains of my mind
Flying one thought to the next
Seemingly stranger to the previous
What ignites the trigger to spark
It never seems to stop
Focus a hard thing to master
Too many balls up in the air
Links fragile tenuous wisps of smoke
Blown to and fro by a breeze or word
Chaos caused by chasing each
A voice slower than thinking
Can’t keep up with inner turmoil
Broken tether to the ground
Aimless floating in a sea of possibilities
Fingers brushing them momentarily
Never grabbing and holding for dear life
No follow through
Busy, busy, busy
With no production
Quiet the most abundant creative
Slow-motion with just one
