I’d Best Be On My Way

And an aching in my heart…~Gordon Lightfoot

In the early morning rain, shy wren raves
big personality on the airwaves
I join–spontaneity to sit, drips
with goosebump chills. The corrigible slips

by sly and buttery through my grip. How
I hanker to improve my lot, avow
under this overcast gray mist, persist
in magical thinking, pathos dismiss.

Inspired by: Corrigible, Personality, Buttery and Spontaneity.

And this gorgeous Eva Cassidy cover of one of my favorite songs, Early Morning Rain.

According to Brittanica, magical thinking is the belief that one’s ideas, thoughts, actions, words, or use of symbols can influence the course of events in the material world. Magical thinking presumes a causal link between one’s inner, personal experience and the external physical world.” Hmmm. They give you pills to stop this. Sounds like a definition of oppression to me.
