Life In A Drop

A snowflake falls upon a lash, melts with the body heat. Drops to become another stitch, of the snow quilted scene. A drop of dew upon a leaf, trembles before it falls. Into the cupped, bird bath below, singing a soft plink of song. Tears from clouds along the ridge, course down the mountains cheek. Into the valley far below, offering the desert a drink. Springs that fountain from the earth, meet with rivers wild. Racing themselves to the sea, carving beauty as it toils. Be it just a single drop, or a torrent cascading through. From a simple mist to oceans vast, water is life to one and all.
