So busily preoccupied
spinning in my working mind...
planning programming connecting
timing memorising categorising
defining revising criticising
analysing systematising synthesising
remembering rehearsing monologing
philosophising theologising psychologising
each adding turn upon turn
to my whirling mind
numerals and logic
dictating my reckonings.

His gentle touch reached
deep into my reeling mind
and slowed me down.
His firm hands
helped me hold my centre
and when I stilled within
He moved on and let me be.
