A slow drop of rain
falls heavily on the plain

Heavenly on the pale reflection it puddles
perfect in every way

Falling in time, once again misted
against stems I cling to
twine after twine

Finally carousels slow to the ground
long after everyone is gone
…sleepy heads

While high above outstretched aerialists hover
to wish one another adieu
