Idea – by Katelyn B.

We have always had those moments when some vague but tantalizing concept ventures into the peripheries of our minds. In today’s poem, “Idea,” Katelyn B. artfully and humorously relates her attempts to capture one of these thoughts.


Idea

pops out of nowhere

and surprises me

weaves

in and out

of my thoughts.

I chase it down

and yet

somehow

it usually races

out of sight.

Sometimes

I catch it,

out of breath

but triumphant.

But just as I catch it

the next one

pops out of nowhere

and surprises me.
