journey : poetry : day 4

the journey begins
with a thought
an idea drops
and ripples spread
(do I need to say
they are like ripples in a pond?)
this is a journey through the mind
through time

each memory
triggers another
there is no predictable sequence
more like a multi-dimensional
map of associations
(ah – there it is)
a map I create
through my experience of memories
rather than a map I follow

this is a journey
without a destination
this is a journey of trust
that I will find my own way
to wherever thought takes me
and back again to the present
