i hear a line

then forget


between the day’s



and duties

to write the thought


and so it goes

and later


without paper

I remember



then forget


again when

I have time


to write the line

which keeps


eluding me


so little time

to write


to remember

what one sees


enough to detail

the slow flow


of the rain drop

as it makes


its way along

the porcelain


yard ornament

near the old


burr oak
