Pine needles ape ice cycles
glowing in the misty rain;

And I get...

Water Music
Water’s voice is sweet;
Playing soft whispers across the rocks,
sculpting ground,
trickling, lapping staccato;
a splash crescendo
a symphony begins.
A musical genius
writes notes in the earth;
pulsates to it’s own...

A Shower of Sediment
In such a whimsical action 
a half-asleep routine 
shaped disrobed and left stark naked
this vehicle, this housing, a shell

He feasts on Death, a daily dose.
Life's to pretty, love, sentiment.
