glimpse of sanity

the mind is a swirling ocean
with thoughts - as superficial as the foam
churning without a pause
mundane issues, fruitless emotions
worries, tensions, longings, hopes
joys, pleasures, contentment
pride, anger, hate, love
needs, wants, anticipations, expectations
all mix up to form the indescribable ocean hue.

whirlpools here and there
storms now and then
waves thrashing out with force
currents drifting on their fixed course
all these go on as endlessly
as the seemingly near, yet the always far away horizon.

but among all these madness
the simple act of letting things go
pulls us out of the thick
and offers us the brief solace
of a bird's view of the calm ocean.
