I Started – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” Aristotle

I Started

I started,
but I could not,
that I know,
a certain resistance
I could not transcend,
a thought hovered,
what cannot be said
should be left unsaid,
a certain reality I could
not quite see
became a question
whose words would not
form what I had captured,
and so I left it there
in middle mind.

ยฉPaul Vincent Cannon

    became a question”

  6. I think I probably have quite a bit of thought detritus in middle mind. I go in and poke around every now and again to see what I can find.
