A Single Raindrop

written by: Henry Bladon


A single raindrop lands on the crow
who flaps his wings in a shivering dance.

A single raindrop pauses
on the leaf of a maple for a rest.

A single raindrop soaks the ground outside the
nest, which to the ants seems like a biblical flood.

A single raindrop penetrates the ground
and starts new life in a green shoot.
