Finger painting...The ripple effect

Updated on June 18, 2017

A handy tool for rage and love.

Finger-painting-the ripple effect.



Just one finger

can disrupt

the forces of nature

whether on a trigger

or on the button

that can set off global


The middle finger

when raised

has gotten men killed,

caused cars to crash,

started many a bar fight,

and is deragotory to all.

The thumb can

take one anywhere

I once crossed much of

the country with a

single thumb

along with much waiting

along roadsides.

But the index finger

can push keys

that form words

that inflame

or inspire,

create love,

or make change

by moving others souls.

And that same finger

with soft urgent caresses,

can send ripples

of pure bliss

through all of

a love's nerve endings

until they burst

like daffodils

stretching heavenward

on a sun drenched

April day.

What a paradox lies

indexed in a finger

that is able to paint

both rage and passion

simply by the direction

in which it is pointing.
