In a Drop of Water Poem by spiritual seeker


In a drop of water,
One sees a beautiful rainbow,
In a twinkle of an eye,
Hidden tenderness in the heart shows.

Lo… the glow of a tiny firefly,
Can outshine that of a twinkling star,
The shine of a glamorous star,
Can just be a shiny glass lying on the grass.

Give a cup of water to a thirsty traveller,
And he be a slave to you forever,
Give light to a darkened lost soul,
Is likened to a guiding star in a moonless night.

Be that of morning dew,
Refreshing though for a moment,
As the morning sun rises, it’s gone,
But passionately reappear in the cool of night.

Look, hidden in this little flower bud,
Sleeps a sweetly fragrant beautiful red rose,
Hidden in those silent majestic mountains,
Hot molten larva flows.

O words….
Words spoken from a soft tongue,
Like roaring thunder in a stormy sky,
To justly awake all slumbering souls.
