OctPoWriMo #2 2016: Contemplating the Void

Contemplating the Void

Heat hollows
the space between
two hands.  We fill it
with our breath and press
death between our palms to
pray for understanding,
the gladdening of a world
too often sad, defy
the maddening
reality
of a daily
indifference.

Prayers fade, are answered,
are forgotten, ignored.


Poetry lingers.



Poet's Note:  Today's prompt...the void.

    1. A long-standing frustration of mine...though I am as guilty as the next.
