coin in a fountain:

a splash, pool ripples, coin sinks,

there is no sound chink.

afference & efference

drawn to stillness, the coin blinks.

 

coin in a fountain:

it gleams beyond reach for alms,

children´s arms refract.

cascadence is the cadence,

airborne to water´s silence.

 

coin in a fountain:

the you stare down to the bottom,

face upon water.

the hand that spun the coin is

sound of one hand clapping.
