Gravity

Raindrops twirling from the clouds,

Aerial dance, choreography of heaven.

Clinging in childlike faith to leaf and stem and petal,

Tension creates beauty – surface tautly stretches

To contain its entirety.

Gravity whispers slow,

Hungry with delighted anticipation.

Molecule joins to fellow, seeking companionship

In the great migration;

Drawn irresistibly to the center of the Earth,

Each raindrop traces the path of its ancestors

And abandons itself to the pull of the Deep,

the Joy of surrender.
