atomic hail and shine

small hail
is leap
and bounding
on the path
that leads to the washing line

leap and bounding
on the grass
that bears its mild beating well

what else
can it do

and as quickly
as this chaos
of bouncing white
(like atoms
in urgent search
of collision)
has begun
so it has ended

and the cloud
that no further need
has emptied
moves on
leaving the sun behind
to shine
