The Silent Sword

Rookie - 14 Points (April 2,1997)

Droplet


Thousands of little drops,
The rain falls down.
Vessels of the hurt,
Sinking in the ground.

Only a few of the many,
And of the many of the few,
Is a single crystal droplet,
In which everything is true.

As the droplet falls downward,
You have seconds to decide.
To pick from the thousands,
And find that which is mine.

Once it meets the earth,
It will fade into time.
So none will ever find it,
And never read the lines.
