Thirst Quenchers

The Fall is inevitable –

mathematical probabilities

dictate that the relationship

between material and  motion

are directly proportional.

Gravity makes an insistent and

indiscriminate lover,

whose ‘Come hither’

is as irresistible as  it is unavoidable.

Yes, to fall is utterly human –

it is the Air that is Divine;

this place of faith leaping,

of cushioning the letting go,

is where ,

in the falling,

in the breaking down,

we are becoming

thirst-quenchers.

  1. The water drop on the leaf is so crystal clear that I expect it to fall at any moment. Great poem & equally great shot!
