Soygal Rinpoche

The people splash

stomp through puddles with

blinding yellow Wellies

cannonball through space

spraying, sloshing, soaking

stir up mud, making opaque

all thoughts, reason

rain dance

summon tsunamis

dive deep in

awkward rubber flippers

hurl rocks off bridges

drop pebbles into wells

build elaborate gutter systems to

direct flow

push plungers

add bubbles to baths

circle straws in glasses

add whirls to their pools

I am staring at my moat
