red veins jut out of the tender, living flesh

red veins jut out of the tender, living flesh

covering its pale surface

connecting it

creating a map

 

drops of water sit scarcely on the surface

but one acts as an outcast

it inches slowly along

following the curvature of the veins

soon it will roll off

creating a splash as it lands in the moist dirt

several feet below

 

as the just risen sun lands on its wet, pale surface

nothing is more natural

more beautifully simple
