Day 26 Mind in Two Places

Thank you to Two Writing Teachers
for hosting the Slice of Life

I worked long on getting ready for presentations this week.  I brainstormed a little poem to capture the senses of my surroundings, growing sleepier by the minute but wanting to get the slice written...

Professional not Personal 
Mind in Two Places

The light is beaming...
the cursor blinks
I look around at professional links

My laptop is working...
the keys slightly clicking
I hear the sound of a coach who's picking

The brain is spinning...
the thoughts are drifting
I think and reflect on the importance of sifting

My heart is beating...
it's in two different spaces
I wonder if I can be effective in places?

The body is wearing down from the day
the signals are showing
I feel the yawns growing...

Mind in one place


  1. Love how you turned your two-directional day into poetry. This is a topic we can all relate to.

  2. Oh, I can relate to this, and the rhyming works perfectly to create spinning from one line to the next.

  3. I could feel your tension building and then release. One place - home. Good luck this week!

  4. Poetry sets us free to feel. Thank you for writing, You made me feel the momentary weight and complexity of being human.


I love hearing from you! Please add your thoughts.
