Life Of A Water Droplet

Life Of A Water Droplet short poem

Photo by Beatnik Photos

It was a pearly sphere,
Running in aimless circles,
Glittering and radiating
The wondrous rainbow colours,
Upon the green floating leaf–
Its home for a vanishing moment.

Spurred by the wandering breeze,
This gift of the Heaven ,
Played a game enchanting,
Moving upon the leafy surface,
Changing its rotund shape
Into some myriad forms;

My heart leaped to my mouth
When the pearly sphere
In a wild moment of glee
Or goaded by a tendency suicidal,
Rolled to the very edge
Of the shivering, pulsating leaf,
Only to return to the middle;

Then came a sudden gust of wind,
Shaking the trees tall
And heaving the green leaves
Floating upon the once-calm waters;
My leaf and my pearl
Shivered in a perilous dance;

Alas! the pearly sphere,
The beautiful glittering jewel,
The tiny droplet of water
Rolled off its leafy home
And drowned itself in a move swift,
To lose its unique form
Amidst the sheet of water
That filled the sprawling lake.
