The Power of a Droplet


Have you ever had one of those days

where your voice speaking certain words

‘I’ve checked the weather forecast and it isn’t going to rain…’

haunts you

mocks you

dances around you and taunts you

in every droplet of water

which subsequently falls

gathering powerfully together

joining forces with thunder and lightning

pounding the roof

gushing through the gutters

drumming the ground

flowing along power lines

busy little drops

rushing to get from there to there

flooding the world around you

swiftly and suddenly


until you begin to think that you might need a boat…


“Everything in life is speaking in spite of its apparent silence.”
― Hazrat Inayat Khan
