Firstly, they cascade clear, cool, water

down carved stone stairways while

splashing spouts soar through falling

fountains, mist becomes mesmerising.

Then, they shine bright lights through

endless drops of water rising, falling,

colours chasing each other, dazzling

the eye, spectrum becomes surreal.

Finally, they add music, pouring perfect

notes through water, through light,

liquid notes creating a crescendo

of

colourful

cataracts.

The moonstruck hare

Lepus Timidus Hibernicus

for the moonstruck hare

She has no fear, bright in the moonlit night,
mesmerised, her shadow in the sky
is also clear and bright, this moonlit night.
Herself she sees on the moon passing by.

Lepus timidus, now unconcerned,
she has no fear, bright in the moonlit night,
feeling safe while magic, she has learned,
is also clear and bright, this moonlit night.

 

moonstruck hareShe has no fear, bright in the moonlit night,
safe from harm now, safe while any danger
is also clear and bright this moonlit night.
With that perfect moon she is no stranger.

For as they are always drawn together,
she has no fear, bright in the moonlit night.
That moon and hare are brother and sister
is also clear and bright this moonlit night.

She has no fear, bright in the moonlit night
being that the mystery of moonbeams
is also clear and bright this moonlit night,
the magic, by hare so easily seen.
