Thank You Readers!
I found a silver thimble
as I was walking on the beach
Delhi, India - Tue Oct 3 07:00:18 2000
and capped it on my little finger
Singapore - Tue Oct 3 09:09:42 2000
a thimble, filled with a life I shall never know.
Somewhere in , WA USA - Sat Oct 7 11:50:20 2000
My thimble tells a silent tale
USA - Mon Oct 9 07:31:32 2000
of a sweet unfailing heart,
USA - Mon Oct 9 22:45:19 2000
and though I cannot hear its words
USA - Wed Oct 11 08:48:37 2000
engrained deep inside the metal
Cardiff, UK - Fri Oct 13 13:13:12 2000
I still can feel it resonating in my soul.
USA - Mon Oct 16 11:11:26 2000
Then I dropped it
Boston, MA USA - Thu Oct 19 06:13:07 2000
and the Surf, as quick as a child, snatched it away,
WA USA - Thu Oct 19 08:30:13 2000
and the seagulls took up its cry.
ALTOONA, PA USA - Sat Oct 21 19:27:22 2000
Come and gone quickly, this tiny thimble of life
NY, NY USA - Mon Oct 23 19:39:11 2000
is like the thought of a lover I once knew
Wappingers Falls , NY USA - Tue Oct 24 07:05:45 2000
whose memory of me I've since forgotten.
Huntington Beach, CA USA - Sat Oct 28 14:04:44 2000
My thimble now rests with the sea
New London, NH USA - Fri Nov 3 12:25:48 2000
and only it knows its fate, as mine.
South Lake Tahoe, CA USA - Fri Nov 3 23:44:12 2000
And then I found the golden thimble
India - Sun Nov 5 07:02:52 2000
reborn as a sea shell,
Sharjah, UAE - Fri Nov 10 11:54:23 2000
and lifting it to my ear, I heard
MI USA - Sat Nov 11 09:26:47 2000
that the sea had washed ashore
new york, ny USA - Tue Nov 14 19:29:58 2000
a memory of flight, of angel's breath
Sleepy Hollow, NY USA - Sun Nov 19 19:31:26 2000
and tendril; I am borne toward her now,
Dublin, Ireland - Mon Nov 20 15:10:16 2000
and she makes me feel the sea.
India - Mon Nov 27 10:01:17 2000
