Between Drops

Between Drops

A Poem by Pete

Image result for between raindrops

You won't hear about it in the evening weather report.
I know it.
Everyone knows it.
No one talks about it.
Vagrants and vagabonds are vaccinated with it.
It's out there.
Somewhere.
We're all searching.
If only silhouettes would tell us.
That which puts meaning in sentences.
Punctuating the passage.
Allowing us to be.
But they cannot amidst storms and troubled skies.

World induces spirits photonegative.
We carry on like Renaissance relics.
Regurgitating recompense.
Bold enough to blindfold our bastions.
Marching like marionettes.
Leaping past puddles and stepping over cracks.
It's not about destination.
The journey's the thing.
Let us roll down windows and inhale landscapes while we ride.
Logic lingers in cubicles of civilization but purpose and reason flow only from the follicles of the almighty.

Let it pour, not fire and brimstone but love.
There is only now.
Tomorrow is far.
Chances are.
Catch each moment if you can.
Strumming chords on six-strings.
Putting darkness to the chase.
Rain will fall.
Umbrellas don't shield souls.
Fortune cookies only tell when they're broken.
Ending elderly eclipse and dauntless drought.
Shadows only dance when the sun is out.
Even tears water thirsty crops.
Humanity lives ... 
... between drops ...

"A single gentle rain makes the grass many shades greener. So our prospects brighten on the influx of better thoughts. We should be blessed if we lived in the present always, and took advantage of every accident that befell us." - Thoreau

"Water" journey. *I mean!* "What a journey."

Sorry, I couldn't help myself. Your poem tells so much about life. We get caught up so much into the substance of everything that we forget to look between and all around it. The fun wet stuff that it all floats on. Sometimes we just need a good soaking to keep us whole and together. The dry land gets a little redundant anyways.

Really enjoyed your poem. Thanks for sharing.

I really enjoyed this and the art that accompanied it. The art reminded me of a comic book photo and the words rang an urgency posing the drops as the superhero.
