brief circles break the surface

of black water

rain drops delicately descend

rippling into infinity


then disappear

                                 like time


clouds separate

in sensuous recess

sudden sunshine speckles 

black water turning brown

                                 is a lovely light refraction


a white breeze blows downstream

but buds still burst brilliantly

from exploding green pods


                                 all is reflected in murky mirrors


in sixty seconds


clouds close in again

and seal this day

brown back to black

and green to gray
