Another M. Escher graphic

A reflection of love in miniscule
Encapsulated in dewdrops
Held by an artistic leaf
The latent drops holding
A billion cells of passion

All stifled by the inability
To swim out of the water
Thereby remaining captured
Within their own wet desires
Unable to drown the spurned love

In time the dew merges with the leaf
That is unable to sustain itself
And begins to die from too much water
Now both wonder what brought them
To such a fate that together they must perish

Death is the beginning of life. In order for the leav and the droplet to become one, they must each die to find rebirth as one. Great write and I love the Escher art.
Take care,

Last stanza is where the heart of this poem lies, and also throws light on N's perspective. I liked Escher's graphics!
