bring on the deluge


all rain starts with one drop
yet one drop alone would go unnoticed
falling on a hillside and pooling
gaining momentum down the slope
water joining with dirt and moving rocks
eroding the face of a mountain

a collection of drops in balanced movement
like a school of fish
it anticipates its comrades turns
seeking level ground to rest peacefully
but making every effort to attain that

one single drop an acting catalyst
paving the way for others to follow
his slick path shining downhill
greasing the progress for his brothers in arms

not all drops make it to the bottom
most of the time not even the first drop
sucked into the ground or pooled behind a leaf
but that does not discount their effort
