New Poem: "Sweeping Puddles Away"

"Sweeping Puddles Away" is the next installment in my collection, A Wave of Poetry.  Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes.  Since mosquitoes in Indonesia carry malaria, standing water is also a breeding ground for malaria there.  I spent a good part of my time as a deployed flight surgeon in Indonesia sweeping puddles away--another one of my thankless "public health officer" duties.  Just for fun, I used the villanelle form for this poem.
