Thought Buds

Is a thought that comes from a line of thought written by another
poet, a thought at all that can be called a thought of my own, or is it
simply a thread pulled from a coat of other people’s multicoloured thoughts?

Is it a frayed thread, a thread that is really a twig sprouting from the branch of a tree of thoughts, a twig complete with buds of newness?

Can these thought buds be picked and replanted? Can they then be called my thoughts of my own?

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
