Movement of Thoughts



Sometimes I feel the movement when
Ideas form into
Poetic thoughts that yearn to be
Somewhere from me to you.

Sometimes those thoughts will hit a wall
And I will try to fix
The structure if it can be saved
With tools made out of sticks.

Sometimes I must go start again  
And redesign the thoughts,
By changing themes or where it goes
Before the whole thing rots!

    The significant thing about this is the idea of thoughts having traveling. I've never thought much about thoughts having actual movements. A very interesting concept.
