  A Tapestry Poem by Shernaz Wadia & Avril Meallem

Thoughts by Shernaz
 
I try to trace them
in the latitudes and longitudes of my mind
 
They evade me
like some lazybones dodging their duty
 
My head dizzy from their absence
I hopefully try to meditate.
 
Ah! There they begin to swarm
like buzzing mosquitoes, I can’t swat
those unwanted meddlesome monkeys
 
 
Thoughts by Avril
 
Springing up from an unknown source;
creative, destructive, joyful, sad,
uninvited they flash across the screen of my mind.
Dictate my emotions at every moment of the day.
Take me on a rollercoaster ride through life.
Transport me on strange journeys throughout the night.
Can I stop their flow?
No - but I can choose how I react to them,
and there lies the path to peace.

I try to trace them
as they spring up from an unknown source
in the latitudes and longitudes of my mind.
 
Uninvited they begin to swarm
and flash across the screen of my mind
like buzzing mosquitoes I can’t swat.
Can I stop their flow?
 
Creative, destructive, joyful, sad,
unwanted meddlesome monkeys, they
dictate my emotions at every moment of the day.
Transport me on strange journeys throughout the night.
Taken on a rollercoaster ride through life,
my head is dizzy.
Can I evade them
like some lazybones dodging his duty?
 
No - but in trying to meditate
I can choose how I react to them
and there lies the path to peace.
