The rain spills

inside the picture frame

slowly it fills

the photographed pane


Inside the picture frame

the droplets slide down

the photographed pane

without a sound


The droplets slide down

there they catch

without a sound

they stay etched


There they catch

in the cherry-wood cage

they stay etched

throughout the age


In the cherry-wood cage

slowly it fills

throughout the age

the rain spills
