a thought cannot be cultivated.
if, it is not planted first
in the mind - which, unsedated,
remains awake with conscious thirst.
a thought cannot grow or sprout
if, the mind does not quench it
when it thirsts, and throughout
its young life, guides it.
a thought cannot become a dream
if, any external stone inhibits
its flow to a river from stream
then backward up the stream spits.
