Sense and notion meld
where sound is sight,
and stillness is moving.

It completes an oxymoron
for the day: What crack
of thunder and flash
of lightning would slice
this mid-morning sky
when the delicate petal,
small and white, finally
reaches the black, soggy,
and grass-mottled ground?

Closer to some still point,
on mid-day, I gulp my tea,
and gather all empty cups.
