Thinking in Paragraphs

On this day, my get up and go

            Got up and went.

Yoked to my own ambition

            I plod forward

Horns down, hooves solid, just pull.

But I look out the window where

            The pink trunks of Queen Emma lilies

                        gleam in the daily dose of sunshine

                                    meted out by the goddesses of Hawaii

I am thinking in paragraphs

            each thought 

bumping into an indent

                                    One more tab in

                                                and the plodding thought

                                                            lands like a cow pie

So I start again

            plodding forward

                        these fields of imagination

                                    aren’t going to plow themselves.

Catherine G. Tripp, Writer/Investor a lifelong mix. Left brain and right brain battle for dominance. I wrote the marketing materials for my mortgage brokerage, had a personal finance column at, wrote essays, short stories and poems published in school papers and magazines then literary journals. If my writings were a color, they would be yellow, bright as sunlight, highlighting the salient portions, not obscuring the past but deconstructing air brushed stories, finding humor and courage in the unloved corners.
