She is Water Still

Abandoning the surf,
a drop flies away,
on wings of wind,
wrapped in the clouds,
looking for her landing
and the place of it.

Hills, valleys, rivers,
meadows and farms –
admiring them,
contemplating them,
she falls on
parched land.

Shrivelled ground
devours her.
The drop
disappears,
losing herself,
vanishing completely.

Seeking to set free
she sets adrift,
enticed,
into an essence
way beyond.

Despairing,
she surges
with the swell.
Indifferent,
weary,
jaded,
and lifeless,
she discovers herself
within the timeless ocean.

What peace!
Being as she is
just a drop,
she is water still.
