Third Eye Blind

Mind spinning faster than a cyclone.
Do this, do that ad infinitum.

Worry about things beyond my control
until the scowl line blinds my third eye.

Waste life surfing the net, 
following every link that promises to take me higher, 
faster, farther than the languid loop of my existence.

Why does it never seem enough?

I long to escape the stoic-ease,
walk hand-in-hand among redwood trees, 
visit Athens, Rome, Belize...
but, I'm too busy chasing dreams.

Oh how I wish we could give flowers on comments because I like your clever poem Don! 💐 🌸 P.S. I do have dizzy-disease. I can’t even go to fast action movies anymore because of it!

Enjoy the moment
Of each day you're fed
Because tomorrow
You could be dead

Have your dreams
Rake the leaves
The trees won't mind
Do what you please

But don't run hither and thither ad infinitum Vautaw - you'll get 'dizzy-disease'.

lol, glasses for the third eye, good one Lisa! I changed that last line several times, I first put raking leaves, like doing something that may look good on the surface, but doesn't contribute to anything significant and may even damage the internal ecosystem. I ended up using chasing dreams because I think we can get so caught up in chasing dreams that we forget to enjoy the moment and the beauty beyond the chaos. Thanks so much for reading and your feedback. 🙏

You should never feel (or be) too busy to chase your dreams! What else is there to chase...
Some people say that they are living the dream. Perhaps they are or perhaps they are being facetious.
I'm still dreaming the life. There's too much to see and do, so I will keep chasing.
And I got some glasses so that I don't have to squint so much and crease up my third eye!!!
