Lost In Thought June 2, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Magick & Mystery, Nature, Poetry, Writing & Writers.

The drone of nearby bees, attracted by the sweet scent of the orchard broke the silence.


Sunshine, peering through the leaves, danced and played ~ she stared cold and unseeing, oblivious to its inviting warmth.

Moments passed, one by one, in slow procession, reaching out and receding ~ the dark shadows consuming her mind a barrier to each

An insistent breeze whispered comfort, causing a symphony of apple trees to pirouette ~ she remained unmoved by rustling leaves

Burying her face in fragrant hay

without noticing its potent scent

or tasting her salty tears

she cried.


No rules.  Just write!

How sad for her 😦
(You and I had better swiftly attend to radically trimming our adverbs Girl!)

How often do we lose the moment while lost in thought?

After reading Jodi’s post on adverbs, I came straight here to make sure that adverbs did not overwhelm this post. : )

Playfully . . . Provocatively . . . Freshly . . . Finally . . . any others???

How sad that she was so “lost in thought” she didn’t notice that she wasn’t really alone.

I agree.

When I’m overwhelmed with sadness, if I remember to look outside of myself at the moon, the stars, the sky, the sun . . . it almost always returns a smile to its rightful position on my face.

And if that doesn’t work . . . I turn to The Summer Finding:
