another fall (of sound)

a gentle sound

slips into
and
out of
awareness

suddenly
it is there

it has always
been there

steadily thrumming
to encompass
the whole
of the background world

suddenly
it has gone

slipped away
without notice

a sound space
now unoccupied

left behind

waiting
to be filled
by another fall
of rain
