In One, Single Second

November 23, 2021

To me, it feels slow.
Gentle, like a breeze;
Floating, like a snowflake
before it melts on warm flesh.
I see the fields in the distance,
Feathery heads bobbing to the rhythm of the rain.
The Sun glimmers and shimmers at me, 
A marvelous, glowing jewel 
In a backdrop of morning glory.
And I see the village children
Dancing, laughing, joyfully jumping.
I am like that, too, I think. 
Carefree, yet falling,
Down, down, down... 
And oh! - is this the end?
When I splash in the gravel
Like an explosion of winter spray.
But I do not care,
For I have seen the beauties of the world
In that one, single second. 

(A poem that presents the world through the eyes of a raindrop)
