Stormy Patience

  • Oh my vessel
  • lodged in the storm
  • No sail nor row
  • Could move us forward
  • Vision blockade
  • No way to see
  • past waves and
  • droplets coupling
  • Liquid rounds burst
  • in hissing chords
  • Foam churns and draws
  • Against the hull
  • As rain peppers
  • the sea like salt
  • feeding the waves
  • dissolving drops
  • rolling from the
  • boat’s canvas top
  • A meager cover
  • from this stock
  • in life we held
  • with open hand
  • bounty gone with
  • our sight’s vision
  • of plains and rows
  • that farmers plant
  • Transcending prayers
  • of downpour gifts
  • What’s his is mine
  • the skies once greyed
  • are whitened with
  • refracted bows
  • of rain light skewed
  • Between the seams
  • Is air that waits
  • for company
  • And when it comes
  • we’ll cast our nets
  • into the prayers
  • of others’ lots
  • We’ll wait
  • We’ll hum
  • We’ll see it through
  • Drip
  • Drop
  • Shatter
