Lit swimming pools behind locked fences in the rain at night,
screens' small squares holding water,
a car, sun roof open, drink holders full

water flows and drips through gutters,
hits patio floors,
plashes ferns, grass, fronds

gentle, insisting on falling
suffusing already-heavy, fecund, erosion

what does time tell
how do we see the sadness of history
why, why, ways
