Not All Thoughts Come Clean


Written for .


Prompt: Bathing


Every morning he
takes a spiritual bath;
not all thoughts come clean

Not all thoughts come clean
a resilient soul doesn't
let mind hold them long..

  10. The Spirit always knows. It is sometimes difficult to stay in the bath long enough to wash out what needs to be attended.
