When I close my eyes, when I look inside, I look for the hole in my thinking.

It's not the hole of what's missing. It's the whole of the vision. It's the view to what I'm feeling.

I have to wait. Relax. Reflect. Look. Listen. Look again. Then I see all of the moving things inside my eyelids begin moving.

They move apart. They separate. A tiny hole they make. I look through that hole and see a whole vision.

It's the way to my feelings, my future. It's golden.

Indeed. A hole doesn't necessarily mean empty. It can be full too!

I've given you an award over at my blog 'cos i really enjoy your writing.

Thank you for being you. Your insights bring me new thoughts and ideas. You are an inspiration. I'm grateful. :)

Without a hole, a house would be unlivable, a cup, useless. I like the whole of your hole. Is there room for more than one? :-)

I'll take those cookies now and a hug too if you have an extra to spare. :-)

You have such vision, you are golden. :o) Your words always make us feel whole.

ME Strauss said...

Ah Tree!
Yeah, I have a whole big plate of cookies by that leather chair and two whole arms to give you the biggest hug. :)

Hi Easy!
It's not hard to care about you. Your words and the way you write them make me whole too.

well those holes inside make you realize meanings of many things..lest you don't wander in the darkness inside. Deal with these holes carefully..they may help you in many ways :). Another well written post :).

If you don't mind..I would like to tag your blog's link on my blog.. :)

Hi Pensativo,
I actually look for the holes to reach out for answers. I find pictures inside them that tell me what I'm thinking and what I know.

I'm happy to share a link with a friend. :)

great alchemy!
It's like the space of rest between breaths.
It validates my efforts to turn thinking into meditation. I observe thoughts lighten up. thanks

Hi Brad!
I like the way you see things. You always make me rethink my words to find something new. Thank you for that!
