The Deep Thinker


I like to fill my head with thoughts - 
big, complex and deep;
I think about them all day long, 
at night I cannot sleep.

I'm pretty sure that if I keep 
going down this road,
at any moment now
my head will just explode


Featured: Introducing a new friend,
addicted to deep thoughts
and raspberry jam.

Everyone has someone in their life who suffers such a deep thinker complex. The one in my life really needs to read your advice in the second verse!

Handmade in Israel said...

Ha! I haven;t been sleeping very well. Does that make me a deep thinker as well? Very cute! חג שמח xx

Take care..I don't sleep well in the best of times:9 Cutie patootie.

Such an adorable little bear. That expression.....so, so sweet. As for your poem, just delightful.

Strange, I have been sleeping much better these last two weeks! Cute bear. Jo xx

Thank goodness that he has raspberry jam to balance those deep thoughts. He's very cute for such a troubled soul.

Brenda @ Its A Beautiful Life said...

What a sweet little bear.

I am sorry you aren't sleeping well these days, I do empathize, as I know all about that too.

Wishing you a beautiful day. Keep safe!

I am a deep thinker too. This pandemic has me doing lots of it. I would normally journal it and put it all out on paper, but for some reason I can't write it yet. It is just rolling around in my noggin as well.
Wishing you health and safety and back to a good normal.

MaryAnne said...

The bear is darling! I'm also a fan of raspberry jam. And I completely understand that poem right now.

A Joyful Cottage said...

He does look quite intelligent, Amalia, so it's no surprise that he's a deep thinker. He definitely should take raspberry jam seriously. I certainly do. Especially spread on a warm buttered english muffin, or homemade bread. Yum. I do hope the little fellow doesn't lose his head though. 'twould be a pity to see it explode. ;-) Hugs, Nancy

Junkchiccottage said...

Sweet poem and cute bear. Have a great week.
Hugs,
Kris

Rosie said...

I love your new friend with such an active mind, I know what it's like to lie awake in the early hours:)

Patricia said...

I think we all feel a bit that way Amalia. I too have seen much too much of the middle of the night. Eventually our brains must settle into the new routines. Dear little bear and sweet thoughts. I love that he loves raspberry jam too. xx

R's Rue said...

Beautiful. Stay well.

Ygraine said...

SO cute!!
Yes, he must stop thinking so much! 😉😉

Stay safe...and have a lovely day...

Hugs xxx

Sweet teddy and words !!!!

Jeanie said...

Your words are so true. I'm not sleeping well, either. I think we can all really resonate to your poem.

Conniecrafter said...

This poem would be good for my husband, he is always deep thinking maybe too much.
Love this little guy right down to his patterned paws, so sweet!

Carla from The River said...

I love the bow-tie .. what a sweet smile too.
Love and Prayers, Carla

Gloria Baker said...

dear Amalia usually I think so much too, at night I pray but sometimes think again !! Send you hugs and love and take care ! xoxoxoxo

Junieper/Jesh said...

Most of my life i have been surrounded by deep thinkers. There was a time I wanted to study philosophy. But thank heaven, I chose psychology, at least with that I could help others, lol! You nailed the expression on the deep thinker's face, and he's cute! Many thanks Amalia for sharing him with All Seasons. Wishing you an inspiring week, Jesh

Sandra said...

Lovely bear and the poem is beautiful!

Stay safe and well. Sandra xXx

Red Rose Alley said...

I can relate to your bear, Amalia, cause I am a deep thinker too. But not to the point where I can't sleep. Your little bear needs to rest, have peace, and sleep. ; )
