Catching rain with thimbles
small, delicate, shaken from induced chills
as droplets sieve through the holes
slowly caressing that shaking hand in cold,
comforting embrace of natural love.
I declare a prohibition, to
ban the way we contest change,
dry up currently whetted appetites
that hunger for war, conflicting,
pedestrian ideas and ideals
promoting each other’s assumed lesser.
Backlash burns silently
smoldering, tears blind those
already living without sight, mixing
tears mix with the heat of untouched friction of words
rubbing-together, concocting a chemical cleanse
aggravating all the senses.

Flurried thoughts splatter
against the windows of pain.
Momentarily freezing, pondering melting,
into an opaque fog childishly cloaking
fear among chills betrayed
shivering in centimeters apart from
all other emotions but, solitude still
prevails in front of everyone’s eyes.
