I felt a clearing in my mind

I felt a clearing in my mind, and found my brain at rest
And thoughts that once had clamored there sat happily unexpressed

The words I’d anchored to my thoughts broke loose, began to rise  
As I stretched out and watched them float like clouds across the sky


This is a response to today's NaPoWriMo prompt:
Find an Emily Dickinson poem – preferably one you’ve never previously read – and take out all the dashes and line breaks. Make it just one big block of prose. Now, rebreak the lines. Add words where you want. Take out some words. Make your own poem out of it!

I chose I felt a Cleaving in my Mind.
