“The mind I love must have wild places, a tangled orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass, an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two, a pool that nobody’s fathomed the depth of, and paths threaded with flowers planted by the mind.” ~Katherine Mansfield~

Difficult and unreasonable as it may seem,
I do need specific things from the mind I love.

I am demanding,
so the mind I love
must be patient.

I am intelligent,
so the mind I love
must be wise.

I am strong,
so the mind I love
must be brave.

I am hungry,
so the mind I love
must be willing to give
….. and give.

I am learning,
so the mind I love
must be able to see
the same things in life
more than once
and still find them interesting.

I am enthusiastic,
so the mind I love
must be energetic.

I have much to offer,
so the mind I love
must be willing to receive
… and receive.

I am care free,
so the mind I love
must be strong.

I am imperfect,
so the mind I love
must be forgiving.

I am humorous,
so the mind I love
must be light hearted.

I am on a journey,
so the mind I love
must be adventurous.

I am mystical,
so the mind I love
must be permissive.

I am fragile,
so the mind I love
must be cautious.

I am delicate,
so the mind I love
must be gentle.

I have much to say,
so the mind I love
must be able to listen.

Difficult and unreasonable as it may seem
in order to reach my own potential,
I do need specific things
from the mind I love.

Once upon a time,
I lost my mind.
I think I just found it.

Perhaps the mind I need to love
is my own.
