A melodious burst of water drops

A melodious burst of water drops

A melodious burst of water drops
hits the surface of the water next to me,
wakening me to my surroundings.

In stillness, I am on a narrow strip of land
surrounded by a profusion of tall trees
between a mere and a gently curving canal.

Looking up, I see high above me
a squirrel leap gracefully
from one slight branch to another.

The branch sways, drops of water
are dislodged from twig and leaf;
they fall down and down through the air.

A melodious burst of water drops
hits the surface of the water next to me,
reaching my ears, evoking joy.

On the water, in the air,
the different ripples spread and spread,
mixing into the reality of this world.
