I followed the rain today
Through the wooded dry –
And when land crested
Caught only one drop –

I chased the sun today
Through cloudless sky –
And when day peaked
Caught only one ray –

I sat on a tree stump 
Under falling dusk -
Examining the vastness
Of this incompleteness –

And when night fell
Found myself saturated –
By the drop of rain
Placed in my eye to run –
