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.
