Wild Thoughts


Ah! Today wild thoughts took my mind.

Ideas blown by gusty breezes

Slipped into consciousness.

Towering trees in some virgin forest long past.

A crystal stream.

Wild geese set against a gray winter’s sky.

A log cabin.

A warm stone fireplace.

A flannel shirt.

A friendly dog.

A need to hunt.

A good hot cup of morning coffee.

A biscuit.

It is crisp October air that brings them on,

So strong I almost let them take me where they will.
