Rain Drops Fall Off the Leaf

Posting poems in the night for
you who read me,
somewhere in this world.
Oh I have done it for so long now.
I may have published
the first poem on the net.

It went
Hello World.

“Hello Ball”,
said Art Carney.

I roll the ball toward
some overwhelming question
without an answer
and tell you that
beauty is truth.

Then a few judge
whether I
said it
well enough.

when all I wanted, really,
all you wanted

was to hear the words

rain drops fall off the leaf.
