Spikes of a rain shower;
glint of sunlight;
feeding fish below makes wakes;
leaf on a spider’s cable measures the flow.
Red blossoms, yellow petals, two tennis balls;
fizz of a school of tiny fish;
scuttle of a startled water-dragon;
fallen bamboo pole measures the flow.
Large fish jumping;
airborne seeds may bounce, or catch;
swooping splash of insect catchers;
bent floating leaf sail measures the flow.
Leaves and twigs in backwater eddies;
heavy rainfall scatters all;
choppy river water sends waves up the creek;
… mind ablaze,
… … floats downstream,
… … … measures the flow.
