Mindlessly Commonplace

An image one could call pedestrian

might still convey significance profound.

For instance, water dripping in a pan

demonstrates fluid motion, waves of sound,

time’s passage marked with every passing plink,

properties of aqueous suspension,

how ratios of geometries link,

capillary action, surface tension,

volume’s effects upon viscosity,

prismatic colors, current convections,

refraction and trans-luminosity,

but we don’t always make these connections.


While Nature bares her wonders, we just think

it’s time to wash the dishes in the sink.
