Drop leaves Faucet

Drop leaves Faucet
carefully –
slyly looking both ways
like a prisoner in a daring escape,
takes a breath
closes eyes,

Launches!

free falling bliss
to desperate reconsideration
wind pulls delicate skin
and all is quiet

Drop shatters into
a million shining sparks on a stainless steel
tundra,
Transforms into something infinitely soft.

Take one last look, Drop, at a cold grey world and
drain toward something
altogether new

    I just BECAME that drop–while reading–and now I feel myself evaporating. But In my inner hydrogen, I am certain there is a heaven of wetness waiting for me above.

    And it will send me back again…but where? Maybe this time as a salty tear in your eye, to help your cry.

    Sorry! I just write what I'm thinkin' sometimes and I cannot stop the keys from clacking.
    PEACE!

    I love the verbs – transforms, launches, shatters ~ That drop can turn into a river ~

    Is your drop mindful she has options? Can she find a different wind to nudge her?

    I wish your drop, a new, clings longer, endures for having found a better place.

    Perhaps you will write of it if it comes to pass and in a way as eloquently as you have done here.

    Cheers
