Shroud

tonight there is a lovely tinkling
drops
beads
freezing rain on sidewalks
rooftops
ebbing January
the first robin of the year
on the boughs of the dogwood
the tink tink tinkling of rain
falling freezing not quite snow
makes me think of the moment when a glass falls
suspended in mid air
flash frozen
if only we could reach out
catch it
react in time
move in the moment
waves waves waves
