Inwardly Return

Oh questions pouring in
Sadness attaches to darkened feelings
Confusion sits at tables end
Contemplated reality sets a plate
Gazed and glazed
Outwardly approach
Songbirds gather round
Singing hearts joyous melody
What’s this?
Happy Squirrel eating nuts upon the shed?!
Inwardly return
Joyous smile hence forth
What was I thinking about?
Forgotten once again…
