A Drop of Water.

A Drop of Water.

A Poem by Hillary A

Bored again! :P


A drop of water falls on the ground and I stop.
I look up, more fall.
The rain treads on every path I have yet to take.
I look down. The ground wet, being beaten by water.
Thunder roars, scaring me out of my place.
I look up, say thank you, and start to walk again.

I like it. When I read it through the first time the first thing I thought was "cute". It's short and sweet, with a nice even rhythm and good imagery. When I read it through the second time I saw how much deeply it could be interpreted. Very beautiful poem, well written. Keep it up!

"Not sure if I like it :/"-- Well, BE sure! It speaks with amazing clarity for only six brief lines of Man's transience on this Earth, of the inexorability of Nature, and of your relationship to God and His Creation. It is a masterwork, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

Well, it makes its point quite nicely... and we should be grateful for whatevere life showers upon us...

I like it,a true poet see's all things with a certain amount of interest. You have a poets heart my friend and since it is raining you have inspired me to go walk in the puddles. Also you capture a moment in your life very well,great job.

An interesting and evocative piece with depth. That rain-sodden road...whichever one you take...will have thunderstorms some days. Very true. A nice-reworking of a classic symbol.
