Wheel Spin

Some types of contemplation:
Analytical is where you dissect a topic
watching the wheels go round
until a solution or conclusion is found

Focused concentration is just that
attention to an object or our breathe
enhancing every little detail
so it blocks our busy thoughts

But most already have a technique
is yours gardening, golf or fishing
music, cleaning or a long hot bath
cycling or speeding in the sports car

Or so focused on your creativity
that it quiets your monkey mind?
How do you turn off those constant
thoughts and stop your wheels from spinning  ..

Daily Prompt:   Wheel

  1. I love the “wheel” theme and how you conquered it in such a fun, but thought-provoking way!!

    A wheel-y good poem, Kate! 😀

    I remember a day when driving was relaxing…but, sometimes it’s not anymore…too many people on the roads.

    I can calm my monkey mind with music, writing, walking, meditation, reading, gardening, etc…the older I get the easier it has been to not sweat the small stuff…and even some of the big stuff…and just relax.
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  2. Hello Kate,
    A great way to connect the two subjects. Very creative, and I tame my mind through learning photography and capturing that moment… nothing else can distract me then. And may I pass on a big hello from Miriam in return for your kind wishes 💐🦋
