Having Fallen

The naked sound

Of rain falling,

Listen

Pause your breath your sound your thoughts

Do you hear it?

The naked sound

Of a drop

Free falling

From the greatest heights

Rushing

But without a hurry

To fall

Upon a leaf

Or a blade of grass

Or if no barrier exists

Directly to the bare naked earth

Having soared having fallen having reached

Just where it is to go.

Did you hear it
