Ethereal mind-rain floats a haphazard guess,

a vibrant, blissful dream-future helium-rising -

still just out of reach. Grab at it, grasp

toward the misty, hope-silence, it's empty air.

Palms will cup-clutch-shiver with nervousness, words will bend toward

light, seeking nitrate-strength,

all resilience for the growing season, a tender reason,

until the hope is no more, for it's been

lost or gained. The rain stops, the shimmerless, reflecting puddles dry, and all that's left is motionless,

meaning-lost sand pouring through antiquated, obfuscated hourglasses -
how long to remember yesterday's hope?

I loved this poem, I might just have to read some more of your work. Your use of wording made this flow so easily and feel so i guess....tender. This has become one of my personal favorites.

Bouncing Back to Cope
grasp not at the willy-nilly
that misty air of hope...
clutch resilience tenderly
it's how we grow to cope...
