First a few driblets
like a misty spray of fate
Across hopeful faces
in the midst of a drought

Then a fragile stream
through mystic woods
in baby bursts of elation

Then a splendid waterfall
with an unstoppable force
As strong as
the thirst for life

Then a determined river
Sometimes narrow for thought
Sometimes broad as the horizon
Its tributariesย creeping quietly
Until the ultimate merge

Then a magnificent ocean
Struckย by passing storms
But housing
islands of unperturbed sanctity
Yet raging
for attention at the shores

Finally a seething tide
Trying to adhere
to sands of a glassy promise
Yet ebbing
into realms of a briny embrace
