A Confrontation



A confrontation
between one and another
in front of a pond or a puddle.

Springsummerfallwinter—what matter?

A confrontation
and a resolution
or no resolution.

Some birds land near the water,
fly up from the water.

One heart thumps harder,
one breather breathes faster,
and the sun announces
from the water:

Hello!  Here I am!
