The World Upside Down

The World Upside Down

In the misty turn of a rainy afternoon

a single, ponderous drop of rainwater hangs tenuously from the curved tip of a leaf

holding within the world turned upside down

and a moment later falls into eternity.

If you look closely you’ll see the maple trees at the edge of my neighbor’s yard upside down inside the droplet.
