Puddle Dance

Raindrop circles dance

to nature’s disco rhythm

round the clear, wet floor

formed by a streetside puddle

after a spring shower,

flashed by stoplight strobes,

layered by passing headlights;

a movie-still scene

framed by window glass,

the sound turned down, the action

viewed from a cafe table

set for tea and scones.
