A terse question

Will the tiny rain drop
surrender to its peers,
forcing to take it beneath?
or will it cling 
to the narrow windshield 
daring to be unique?

This question i ask my heart
for the rain of time is
shuddering my drop-like dreams
would they survive?
be a part of unknown half?
or merge with the common stream...


  1. How beautifully you told the journey of a droplet! Brilliant use of words beneath and unique. Great creation..

  2. thanks you Saru Ji. and er.. i didnt use the words intentionally, they came with the flow :)

  3. Wow!
    And the droplet I know so well can never be a part of the common stream :) And she will be something else :)
