Snakes in the hibiscus

But it was green snakes in rain
Falling from the hibiscus head,

As leaves were dropping pearls
On a boy who stood under tree

To gather raindrops on tongue.
Everything was snake in hoop

As would come in boy dream.
All that took place in his sleep

Was snakes falling from a tree
Like flowers loosened by rain.
