A quiet private moment When thoughts tumble and race, our minds sort through the flurry And put them all in place. Some thoughts are fraught with worry, And others filled with love, Both curious and cautious Some peaceful like a dove. With logic and emotion Delete, remove, choose all. Our heart and mind do battle Who gets to make the call Logic or quick reacting Accept you sort and stew, Prioritizing feelings Deciding what to do. Yes life’s alive with choices Some challenge or bring pain While other glide and comfort Like springtime’s gentle rain. So try to choose your focus Such options blue or grey. A smile, sunglasses ready Today’s a sunny day. Written by Sandi Lafferty
