“Like Water”

Posted on Friday, September 11th, 2015

“Like Water”


It sounded like water,

Escaping a pipe—

Running out from

Under my home;


Sparkling water,

Channeling free,

From rupture of

Uncertain origin;


I searched in all

Directions with

No success until

In stillness determined,


My leak was a rush of

Sparrows flying gleefully

Onto fig tree whose

Fruit had just ripened.
