***

The water shows us
What we really want to see
The world is waiting

***

A constant buzzing
Fountains and planes in battle
Silence is losing

***

Cricket of the night
How sweet of a lullaby
Calming in passing

***

Green, red white and light
These colors wane and wax
Shadows giving depth

***

The colors of past
Now bleed into the present
They are not vibrant
