The poetic city: “The Single Drop”

The Single Drop  
Whenever I have the opportunity 
to contemplate a waterfall 
I always look for that single drop  
that separates itself from the rest…
The one that’s flung from the cascade
as it goes over the falls,
rises to the zenith of its arc, 
and catches the sun before
plunging back into the rushing flow.
Then I make a wish that my life 
might have a moment in the light 
and be an inspiration as the single drop 
always is for me.
