Beautiful Thinking by JV Birch

I discovered ‘eunoia’ recently.

It means ‘normal mental health’

(it doesn’t explain what ‘normal’ is).


It’s got a Greek derivative

meaning ‘well mind’ or ‘beautiful thinking’.

I imagine a head full of flowers.


It’s also the shortest English word

to contain all five vowels.

I like the idea of being tidy and whole.


It almost seems celestial

although phonetically it’s much like

‘you know her’.


So with this new knowledge

I shepherd my thoughts

all-consuming and bleating into the blue.
