The Life of a Drop

The Life of a Drop
By Brett Somers
Written 3-14-16
A drop patiently awaits A fate it cannot abate A sprinkle in time A moment closer to flow It already knows. Down it will go With each midst It doesn’t resist With each expansion Grows wiser New molecules of wonder From ancient seas and thunder Holding on Its position firm On showers curtain It awaits its turn. A flow streams past One drop to end many Many drops become one But our drop holds on Eagerly filling its translucent bowl A shimmering watery soul Now feeling gravity’s throes Heavier and bulging It knows. A sudden shift downward Too heavy to hold From inside the tension subsides Walls collide Its grip forever lost But now enjoying the ride Flowing Glowing Sense of unknowing Joining other drops Picking up momentum Then all stops.
