A Single Drop

Today

A single drop

Fell

Caught

On fingertips

And continued

Downward

Landing

On hard ground

Disappearing

Into dust

That

From which it came

Are there more

Buried deep

Somewhere

Behind

Those eyes

I look

But find no clues

Only reflection

Of eyes

Refusing

To reveal

Why

That single drop

Fell

The New ‘More’

I look

To the mirror

And find

More….

But can’t exactly identify what this ‘more’ is

Determination?

No

Definition?

No

But there is more there

I look again

Deeper

Past the exterior

Focusing

Peering closer

The interior

There is more

A puzzled look reflects back at me

Neither of us understanding ‘more’

We look again

Now finding

A cloud of dust

Billowing

Spreading far

Both tall and wide

And very fresh

On the ground

Rubble

The source?

Is this where the cloud initiated?

Rubble

A former wall?

Newly collapsed.

I walk away from the mirror

Wondering

When this dust settles

What

Will the new ‘more’ reveal…
