Liquid Thoughts

Liquid+Thoughts
Ms. Levine

My thoughts are like

the raindrops that cling

to the window.

They are the drops that

connect and collect,

that swirl

and trickle back.

 

Lost in thought,

I find myself gazing out the window,

observing a sky of half-second

crystalline droplets.

They offer quiet consolations

against a blurred glass screen

before dripping away.

 

Unexpected,

they feel overwhelming—

they drop in big,

messy

splashes.

Search for shelter

in a deserted land

 

Wander,

losing the hours

in a seemingly

 

endless

 

storm.
