Little girl gliding,
All pliés and grand jetés
-hopes for

From on top of hill,
I saw car skidding to crash
-particles fly out.

Baseball rolls to bush,
Tried to find it, felt fur,-snarl!
-set world record sprint.

Drops trickle down slope,
Cutting deep eddies in earth
-behold, a canyon!

Tall case clock chimes twelve,
Pendulum swings to and fro
-waiting morning’s glow.
