Gliding through life quietly

Like moccasins in the forest

One drop of water

In a cloudful of rain

One shining drop

On the edge of a leaf

For just a moment's breath

Then into the foreverness

Of that last descent


  • Goldfinch60

    Beautiful words Lorna. We know that the last drop will return as it reaches the sea and rises into clouds to rain down once more.

    My Dear Lorna,

    A beautifully written poem. As I read it, lots of my thoughts become very clear. Youā€™re probably thinking of J and I of C. It does sadden me to think of life such as it is. So we smile and proceed.

    That's what we are i suppose, each of us one drop of rainfall in a cloud, to be swept into the vastness of an ocean.
    Very thoughtful, contemplative verse.

    I bought a native american flute last year and enjoyed playing it with its rich tones. It's the same, more or less, as the one in your picture but i can assure you that size instrument is not the one on the recording, it simply will not blow such low notes. A larger flute is being played and through a lot of electronic sound effect. But the instruments sound superb with the natural echo of a cave or beneath a bridge.

    Intoxicating the quiet of that flute music and love your beautiful words dear Lorna.
