Spilling at the centre
Of an unfurnished sky ...

Philip Larkin (1922-1986), British poet. "Solar."

TIME:  8:03 PM
PLACE:  Front porch
SUBJECT:  Lion’s head fountain

Yesterday I bought myself some miniature cattails to put in my water fountain.  Tonight, after cleaning out the tubing that directs the water through the lion’s mouth (I had a rather large blockage of dirt), I finally set up the new pump that I purchased a couple of months ago.  Now the soothing sounds of splashing water fill my front porch.
