              ondaatje’s handwriting

              this fine distillation
              of moments
              on your pages
              so cool and
              clear

              like one raindrop
              moving slow
              along the edge
              of a leaf

              then, at the tip

              pausing

              as if time itself
              was
              ...... breathless.

Wonderful... I think this poem also captures the famed poeticity of Ondaatje's writings (prose and poem).
