THOUGHT FALLS

THOUGHT FALLS

‘There is peace here
Let your thoughts fall’
Fall out of my mind
Anger, worry, painful thoughts
Fall as a leaf falls
Dry, brittle, old
Still
Lying at rest on the stone mosaic
No longer hanging
No longer attached
Belonging but not belonging
Leaving behind
Other leaves, other thoughts
My mind is like a tree
That sheds thoughts
When it is time for them to fall

Pat Mosel
(Coldingham Priory, Scottish Borders)
