The Fountain

The girl obsessed,

taking all kinds of photographs

I wonder how and why

there aren’t any fountains?

Those slow trickling shots

where time sits so deliberate,

while everyone else,

gets lost staring

at the pretty drops.

Hopefully today,

the camera lense will turn

focused on the shimmering,

just inside,

the garden gates.

Against large beautiful flowers

this pool of water keeps turning

waiting to be seen.

Adrift and carefree,

the girl and her camera

are finally ready to capture

the very things we see.

So come tomorrow

I hope she comes prepared

to share her photographs

of a fountain,

in this,

the people’s garden.
