Archive Sunday – Paths to Paradise

hallways of the mind

defining moments in books

and secret nooks

stairways of the mind

a mind-boggling maze

clouded in a heavy haze

tunnels of the mind

darkness at the bend

light at the end?

paths of the mind

thoughts in need

where will they lead

paradise lost

paradise found

  4. Eugi, Love your use of imagery here to capture a downcast, melancholy, restless mood: particularly, “stairways of the mind,” and “thought in need.” The meter and rhymes just lead you around the corners so nimbly. Very nicely done. 🌹

  8. It is amazing how we can be transported by our imagination as we read and become engrossed in a story! Well done!
