Little by little,
slowly yet surely
like a ticking clock

to the earth fall
silvery droplets
from the rooftops;

cool, clear waters
into a crystal pool
on the ground form,

only to soon vanish
nowhere to be found,
sucked underground;
each droplet I watch 
while life whizzes by,
seconds into minutes

and days into years,
leaving no big traces
of its sorry existence;

wee droplet and me,
kindred old spirits -
insignificant dots,

one-shot jokers
just passing through
then heard no more.

    That's a beautiful poem Fred. "To be a day then a day of no worth." But it ain't always that way. Thank you for sharing :) The young one, Farah

    The musicality of this is great. the use of such a sparing structure works well and leads from image to image in a great, flowing manner.

    Oh Wilfredo, no one knows what's on the other side, for sure. You may just be pleasantly surprised to see from afar that you have indeed left behind quite a bit more than you now realize. No joking. Sending hugs. Love, Shar
