60,000 Thoughts – (Six Sentence Story #156)

Sixty thousand thoughts every day,

So many of them, unrequited.

Effervescent energy at play,

Pop in, and out again, excited.


Every once in a while, one will reign

And will need a little thinking through,

Unlike the bubbles in pink champagne

That only last a second, or two.


Not all remaining are quite so great,

Keep those that are … post, rugged rigour.

Following that pros and cons debate,

Discard those that fail, with much vigour.


They have no value, just take up room;

Where, more fertile thoughts could better bloom.

(Marshalline Sonnet)
