Just a drop!


“I want you to change”, he said.

“Nothing is wrong with me”, she said.

“You’re being too sensitive”, he said.

“This is a natural normal reaction”, she said.

“You are being too defensive”, he said.

“Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. It’s the law of nature”, she said.

“It’s a bit over the top. Look at all the cascading drama you create for just a drop, he said.

“Stop looking at me with a nano camera“, she said.

Some days she steams. Some days she doesn’t react… Just gives him a cold shoulder or a icy stare.

The drop

I existed. Why? What am I part of?  I never knew.

I looked around me.

We all existed. Why? What are we part of? We never knew.

Some of us disappeared.

How? Where to? We never knew.

Until the day I met him.

His touch transformed me.

I lost my form. I rose.

I saw all that I could be. The possibilities were endless.

Snow, Ice, mist….

Anything but a drop of stagnant water in an abandoned fountain that I was ,all my life.

I dropped. That was my last memory.

I existed. Why?

I vaguely remembered something about possibilities.

Water – A Haiku

Binding  roots to sand ,felt ,

On wavy wind rippled silky dusty rocks,

Your presence even in absence
