Today is World Thinking Day 


Mind whirls around

Steady tapping of a pencil,

Eyes staring straight ahead

Though not really seeing.

Think, think, think…

Muttering escapes from lips

Though inaudible.

Stiff arm moves

Up neck,

Carefully rubbing.

Think, think, think….

A fly buzzes by,

But is not taken note of.

The eyes do not pick up the movement.

Somewhat in a trance

With everything moving

In slow motion.

Everything except the brain,

Working like clockwork.

Finally, the brain slows

Awareness comes back.

The answer to the question

Has been thought of.
