Thin Air Writing


What I Have Found

Pleases me so

It is a thought that has no where to go

People think of so many thoughts each day

I want to gather up all those forgotten thoughts and play

Those ideas that went south for the winter

The ideas that sprang out of nothing

That one day could change the world

Unfortunately they are soon neglected

Like a lost puppy just looking for the right home

You see it and wonder

Can I help it

Does it have fleas?

I want to pull over

What am I getting into

Will I soon get attached to an animal

That the owner will want back soon

What if it was my dog?

I would want someone to try to save him or her

To keep him safe out of harms way

Well this is what I do with ideas

Those thoughts that go astray

Lost for the moment

Lost for life

Come here

I don't bite

I will take you in

Give you a place to stay

Help you get on your feet

Then watch you drift away

You are my sunshine

You light up my blank screen

There is so much more to life than meets the eyes

It starts with a simple idea

That expands like an expandable wallet

It starts with no money

If we look long and hard enough

We all know there is room for plenty

So give me your old scrap, worn out, beaten and heart broken thoughts

I will give them a blood transfusion

Bring them back from a very sad place

Give them a good meal for starters

A nice hot shower and a good smelling soap

A shampoo and conditioner to die for

Feeling and looking better is just the start

I will pick you up and hold you close

Give you a well needed hug

Listen to your stories

Reach out to that broken heart

Show you there is a spot in life for you

Right in the front row

So you can see the action

Feel the excitement

Come alive again

Don't wait no longer

Let those old spirits soar

Hold back nothing

For every thought can be transformed

Made into it's own super hero

To wipe out all those bad villians

In life there are thoughts and ideas floating all around us

At this very moment

All we have to do is reach out

Touch one

You won't be sorry

I have to warn you

Your life will be changed forever

So next time your feeling down and out

Think of all those ideas that started the same way

All they need is a lift

In this day and age

Where there were just cabs and limos

Now there is Uber at every corner

It all started with a problem and someone was willing to find a solution

Don't give up hope

Don't let those old forgotten ideas fade away

Like those summer cushions that have been beaten by the sun

Give them a make over

A do over

A chance to shine in the spotlight

All it takes is a little time

Lots of effort

Motivation and desire

Then you are on your way

My ride is here

I have to go

Hope to see you soon

You never know

Maybe we can work on an idea together

Then we can see an idea get off the ground

Flying high above the rest

Don't mind what other people think

Let those old fears get off our chest

Everyone and every thing needs a start

That is only the beginning

Where it goes from here

Is up to you

It starts with one good break

Then can develop into something extraordinary

Because of you

How does that make you feel ?

Hold onto that feeling for life

Then you can rise in the morning and set in the evening

There is no place like home

A home for little wanders

A home for those orphans that need somebody

Will you be that somebody?

Frank Atanacio There is so much to a good story and the imagination is where it all starts. A lot like an inventor who keeps building on one thought and makes it bigger and better. You run into problems and then you have to find a solution. The story can end at any time it is all up to you. Sometimes you get it off the ground and sometimes the motor has trouble starting. We can learn so much from each other. Every problem can be solved. It is a question of are we ready for the answer or our we to blind to see the real issues that hold us back. Things in life and in the world can change for the better if we were all fearless and carefree we can be all we want to be. I feel moments like this but then reality creeps in and changes everything. More practice more time will give me the courage to hang on. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Positive thoughts keep us strong and give us a chance to play hard and enjoy all there is. Have a good Memorial Day Weekend.

Nelllieanna Hay How wonderful it is that we can create many different possibilities. Then I think how great it is when another person sees a different view we didn't think of and after we hear it, it looks so easy. Opening up to a world that is better than the generation before. Finding ways to communicate with other people from all over the world. A win win for everyone. Thank you for reading and caring so much. Have a relaxing night.

Oh, Michael! This is such an uplifting, bright and beautiful poem! It says so much, and shines light on the beauty and value of THOUGHT.

We humans have powers, when it comes to thinking, which other sentient animals may lack or have only in limited degrees. Their powers of communication are limited, but even they try to share their thoughts.

But we can articulate and write down our thoughts, so we can share them with others, often with amazing results. It eve allows us to review our earlier thoughts and see the continuity of our own progress. And much of the progress of human history has resulted from this ability to capture and preserve thoughts, due to our amazing powers of memory to store our thoughts and to retrieve them any time.

We have super power of analysis (when we choose to pursue it) to coordinate our own and others’ ideas we’ve stored in memory and in the words and conversations we’ve shared with each other, so that a ‘Bigger Picture” can take shape and develop for our consideration. Just think!!

We have individual and personal insight, which is probably the best ability of all. I do so enjoy the insights you share with us in your hubs, Michael!

Marlene Bertrand I think thoughts are so much more than most people realize. We make them and break them. Develop them and destroy them. Slowly or instantly we can go through many phases. What wonderful ideas are just around the corner to be explored or ignored. Thank you so much for joining me on my journey. Ideas never have to stop. They will live on long after we are gone. We keep them alive. We give them life. A good idea can change many lives for the better. Two heads are better than one. Ideas are meant to be shared and created with the magic of our minds. Have you been ignoring your greatest ideas lately? isn't it time to sat down and gave them some time. Wouldn't it be great if we all could share our ideas so we can become better people and enjoy life a little more. Just a thought connected to many others. Have a spectacular day.

You gave "life" to the concept of an idea. It is as if thoughts have a personality. You can take it places and do things with it. You can put it up on a table and just look at or you can play with it. I really enjoyed reading this poem.

Louise Powles I am happy to see you. You are my first comment. I try to entertain as well as inform. I have no clue where my ideas come from or where my thoughts will take me. I am excited when someone finds my writings enjoyable. I hope you are doing fine. What is the weather like in England now ? The weather is getting warmer here. In the low 70's. I like it a lot because there no bugs yet. Have a sweet morning.

Louise Powles from Norfolk, England on May 10, 2018:

That's another lovely poem, Dream On. I always enjoy reading your poetry.
