Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Although we may be separated; we will come together again.

         to participate in life

We were mere droplets
brought together in clouds
that shrouded mountains.
We fell from grace,
gaining speed in rivulets,
joining to cascade
in waterfalls and rapids.
We became complacent
as land flattened out,
meandering as if —
as if there were no tomorrow.
Now we have entered the delta,
spread apart by time and distance,
still yearning for each other.
Soon our journey ends,
united again by the water's edge,
perhaps to rejoin the clouds.
