Watching a Petal

With exact timing the rain-soaked branchlet
released water-droplets; while below
a soft, geranium petal strained to reach
the four o’clock sun, its efforts deterred
by a consistent explosion of sorts.

originally penned circa nineteen ninety-two

  1. I like this more multi-syllabic and compacted style. Do you have more writing similar to this?
