I Go Where My Mind Takes Me

I Go Where My Mind Takes Me

Written by Archita Nayak


A constant process-

of observing,

weaving sights into words,

reading my surroundings.  

Yes,

even if you catch me

sitting alone and idle,

on that cornered bench,

where children are playing,

two old men enjoying each other’s company,

youngsters doing yoga and tai chi,

I’ll be there with my thoughts,

Writing poetry in my head. I’ll be there with my stories

Being written in my head.

You may find me talking to you,

but let me tell you,

I’ll be half-present, every time.

because the other half is always

busy in observing everything,

from everywhere,

anywhere,

and nowhere.
