My Mind- A Vortex. Poem by Om Chawla

My Mind- A Vortex.

Rating: 5.0

Emerging from undetermined vortex
Sea waves rush towards its shore:
Relentlessly chasing one another
Never catching up, perishing at coast.

My mind, much like the sea,
Calmer at surface, turmoil beneath:
Deep within its depths unfathomed,
A vortex of unexplained unease.
Churning out series of thoughts,
Like the babble of an infant;
Unrelated, incoherent thoughts.
One after the other they come swarming
In hot pursuit as if striving
for unified identity.
Ere I grasp import of a thought
The one following sweeps it aside,
Perishing like other preceding thoughts.
My mind full to the brim
And yet a vacuum
Full of vanquished thoughts.

Most of the minds are perhaps so. But when you have gone introspective here your mind is full the brim for its transparency. A fine write....

Wonderful surge of thoughts which has the force and magnitude of the tides of the deep! Yes, beneath the placidity of the human mind, often there are whirls and swirls! ! Great write! !

The mind is like a computer disc, it gets filled to the brim with information. I guess we have to learn how to upload it all in order to get so e peace.

A Very Beautiful write. Very true said, our mind is calm like sea from surface but inside are the whirlpool of thoughts. It is very difficult to come out of that....
