My Brain Mining for Meaning


Listen on Posterous

Mining for meaning, my brain is mapping.

Pictures and sounds funneling through the matter.

Slipping and sliding before grounding.

Landing squat then standing straight, these thoughts speak up.

Rousting the roots and considering their context, these baritones of banter are constantly beating for my attention.

Mining for meaning; then exclaiming with examples!

My tension rising with a thousand voices.

My mind is a chorus seeing, hearing, signing, and beating.

Tonight’s post began from a writing challenge at One Word. I had 60 seconds to write something about the word “example.” The graphic is not mine.
