Goldfinch60

The Lost Idea.



The idea was in my mind

To write a poem.

That poem never came

As other words took over

And another poem was written.

I wonder if I will ever write

The original poem.

    LOL Such a familiar thought. I'd often end up writing something completely different from my original intention just as you describe.

    • Goldfinch60

      We probably all do d a, it makes you wonder what we might have written.

      I'm in a similar situation - was it that poem I was going to write yesterday? But now it's today. Shall I write it tomorrow?!
      What day is it? What year is it? What planet am I on? I'm a confused laddie. lol.
      What's that ditty?: 'Tomorrow is......'

      • Goldfinch60

        Today is the tomorrow that yo worried about yesterday.

        Sometimes I've forgotten the words completely, if I've not written them down soon after they have come to mind.
        Good, they say - will save you singing again! lol.

        (there is a lost drawer
        full of inspiration's, dust
        waiting to be found
        and lost, again..
        someday, I will find it
        and go crazy
        trying to record it all
        before
        I lose it, again...
        someday!)
        lol
        just so relatable, Andy
        thanks for sharing, dear Poet

              Very, very true. Happens all the time. I also have stacks of unfinished poems. one's that were started and then drifted to something else entirely. Sometimes I will take bits and pieces of those unfinished poems and build a new poem from them.
              I think we can all appreciate your poem for having been there. Nice words Andy. - Phil A.

                Yes Phil, I think we can all relate to this. Thank you.

                How true! I've often found myself going through my file of ideas and somehow finding inspiration in the least likely. The wonders of the mind, baffling.

              • Goldfinch60

                The mind is certainly baffling at times Bella, thank you for your comment.

                I now find in general conversations with several people that my input to offer if not put up right away evaporates.
