Sylvie M. Miller - ORANGE SEEDS

Did you see how the rain made time dissolve itself?
how time is clinging to the panes,
to your image, to the garden,
to the orange that you eat?

- About this orange that you eat -
time doesn't know that once the rain
has drowned it down the window frame,
the sun will come and retrieve it
so that again this gardener
that's been released in his garden
can see its seeds germinate.

Time forgets it at every downpour
and marvels each time

Sylvie M. Miller
