»A Clear Mind«

by Mary Kettle, October 5, 2009

Today my mind is void of fear
rational thinking
my path is clear
neurons are on
jumping well
so much activity
from cell to cell
so full of ideas
the sparks do fly
nothing stopping them
no detour signs
A lot will be accomplished today
as a clear mind
doesn't often come my way.
