Suddenly it hits you in the face anouncing a downpour, a wet herald from the skies telling the seeds to be ready to give man his bread.

A water drop decided to quit
after getting tired of been
pushed, shake and blown
by mighty winds in the midle
of a never ending storm;
from water into ice into
sparkling little diamonds
that make the snow,
and then again,
melting into tiny pearls
to be part of the fog,
that make the lights
to fade away
by obscuring the sun,

the little drop, after quitting,
jumped from the cloud and went
traveling on the shoulders of the wind
without looking down;
freedom is waiting down below,
in the thirsty earth
of a thirsty world,
waitng for the drop to give life
to a flower or a grain of corn;

nobody followed after
the solitary drop,
all being so busy riding
the fury of the storm,
that they didn't noticed
that the little drops its fall
wasn't on fertile waiting ground...
but on a rock.

A little water drop, on a rock. So touching to me. I like to see the raindrops on my door when it first starts to rain. But on a rock, I never noticed. Good words and free flowing poetry.

Enjoyed this much Georg. We do face many unexpected twists and turns my friend! Very creative...I recall having to do a short story when I was in school where I had to become a raindrop and write about my travels and destination...lots of fun!

excellent poem, Georg ... life has unexpected turns ... no matter how well planned out or how spontaneous its freedom, where it leads is determined by the winds of destiny ...

...readying to boil into a vaporous fog, only to be evaporated into the atmosphere, swept up into the same winds of fore, reuniting with its origin of source...the everlasting cloud towards heaven's infinite thirst! got me going and continuing...
drop by drop...
Love it!
Love and peace~

Enjoyed the journey of the little raindrop. My hope is that it glided off the rock onto a waiting wild flower below.:) Excellent poetry.

Many blessings,

Brave little wayward drop with all the best intentions I would like to imagine that on that rock was a thirsty gecko in need of just a solitary drop of water. Lady J
