Turning on a Tap
August 1998

In the dimlit stableyard,
wind shattered the column of water
trying to flow from the tap.
Moon caught the broken column and its scattered droplets
in a dazzling display.
Wind and moon and water
danced for me
and a stablecat
one moment
on a blustery winter night.

Thanks Magnus and Martie for your enjoyment and appreciation of my poem.  I love your smilie, planting flowers, Martie (perhaps I have mis-interpreted it - we always see what we want to and are most interested in and I love gardens and gardening).  Magnus, sorry about the duplication of my reply to your When the Owl Flies.  I have asked Greeneyes to remove one of them.

Owl, what a gorgeous entrance to these forums! Welcome!
I enjoyed each word droplet, the cool imagery, the MOMENT.

I can learn something from this poem of yours.  How to capture a moment in time and put it into words that will last forever.
