Raging Minds


No ideas


I left no stone unturned
I looked high and low
In every nook and corner
But search with all my might
My mind yields no ideas.
For all my knowledge and reason
I lack what is called
Imagination
And inspiration, and insight.

It was to no avail
All my piercing and probing
And rummaging and prying
For I could find nothing
But a bare emptiness
A void, a vacuum
Extending ceaselessly
Into perpetual, boundless space.

    I drew the short stick with imagination too. I really like this it's cool.
    I left no stone unturned
    I looked high and low
    In every nook and corner
    But search with all my might
    My mind yields no ideas.
    good lines... creative lines.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
