A vacation for my mind

Thoughts disturb the calm in my mind
causing ripples
in the pool of my serenity

They dance about in the dark open spaces
whilst “What-if’s” and “Who-cares”
in rhetoric response
try to lasso and subdue

Echoing somewhere
is the voice of truth,
and the hollow ring
of timeless traditions
reverberates forth in meaningless manifestations

Thoughts uninvited
making themselves at home
The broom in the closet itching
to sweep and clear the cobwebs away

I wish for my mind a vacation
but what would suffice in its absence?
Would it return refreshed and renewed?
Would it return at all?
