Droplets of Verse: ‘Fingertips’

For every bad man
Can there be a hundred good?
Too many lives
Are misunderstood

Often grow high
The leaves of a tree
Crumple in the sky

When the cold air comes
And we wrap up, wrap up
Life pours down a drain
Catch it in a cup

I hold it in my hands
In my fingertips
Words trip and stumble
From my lips

  1. Andy,
    The poem intrigued me. I find Kirlian photograpy a curiosity; it has an artistic appeal, as well. But, I have my own take on fingertips, and will post in my blog – as I feel it rude to do so here in your excellent place…

    1. I’ll look out for your piece, Lin. Fingertips was never the intended theme for this piece, and I’m still not completely sure what I was trying to get across. It’s kind of okay, but it falls a little short somehow I feel. Nothing wrong with that in essence, because we don’t have all the answers in life, so maybe it reflects that.

  2. I was intrigued by the write. Since first learning of Kirlian photography, it has held a certain curious appeal for me, as well as an artistic cant. But I see fingertips differently. I’ll post on my own page, and perhaps earn a visit.
