I drove home…

April 23rd, 2007 by Chris

I drove home tonight in the dark.
I drove home tonight in the dark and the rain with the headlights on high.
I drove fast.
The rain sparkled on the asphalt as each drop hit.
And shattered.
To flash briefly and disappear.

Some bounced.
Not hail, but rain.
The strange physics of water bouncing on water.
And asphalt.
And flashing light.
Arcing briefly.
So fast as to not be seen.
Except they are.
And then gone.

The splashes revealed.
Always there.
Only seen by the passing car.
The moving car.
The fast car.
Thousands of fans doing the wave.
