Thoughts tumble through my head like blocks 

                                                                                  falling

                                                                                             down

                                                                                                       stairs.

But, they are never ending, l i k e   f l o w i n g   w a t e r . 

So, in fact, my mind is like a waterfall, thoughts ceaselessly flowing over the e

                                                                                                                                         d

                                                                                                                                          g

                                                                                                                                          e,

ever moving, never stopping or even slowing down.

I would think so quick as a child that my hand        couldn’t      keep   up   with  my  mind.   

I was so afraid that I would forget all the wonderful stories flowing through my mind that I wrote in scribbles instead of   

nice,   

neat,  

lines.

    1. Thank you! 🙂
      I got the idea from the Shel Silverstein’s book “Falling Up.” I read it tons of times as a kid and remembered all of the fun things he did with his writing.
