Thoughts...


To the shelters I prowl
Watching them toil
Pushing their needs
Planting their seeds
But to wonder aloud
As I set to recoil
I have to imagine
What are they thinking

  2. That "have to imagine" sounds like a defence mechanism necessary for survival! Dramatic, dynamic poem!

  4. not quite sure who you are referring to here, I'm thinking perhaps since no one is exactly alike, it makes us wonder about each other, sometimes our thoughts are the same but we'll never know since most of us prefer to keep our thoughts to ourselves

    or it could simply be you're wondering why is this person buying the things they are buying? I find myself sometimes walking behind someone in the supermarket and wondering why they have a pile of things in their cart and I have only two items in my...do they know something that I don't?

  5. Very evocative; it seems to me that you are looking on to some alien creatures.

  8. It is what we apparently are all wondering.

    I like the flow of this very much.

  9. enigmatic. layered questions about needs real and manufactured, how we satisfy hunger.
