Drops arrive on window pane

What a marvel they contain

Delicate landings one by one

To be evaporated by the sun

Mottled patterns on glass screen

Blurred outside cannot be seen

How long their staying to delight?

Will they be gone before the night?

Sliding downwards long and slow

Refracting light, then pooled below

Merging, meeting on their way

To await collection? Who’s to say?

Sipping drops from green cup leaf

Tiny creatures, their thirst relief

Nature supplies this pilgrim’s stop

From delicate sphere of water drop

What glory found in simple things

Adoration, thanks to mind it brings

Teach the keen who can observe

Free lessons from Nature’s reserve


O Lord, in a every life-giving drop of water there is a miracle. Open my eyes and heart I pray, that Thy I may receive Thy free glories and lessons given to me out of Thy infinite love.
