How do you map the journeys of a rain drop,
Does she originate in the blue skies or within abyss of ever churning seas,
Does she rise from the ocean due to the glory of sun,
Or falls from skies due to her love for mother earth,
Does she run away with the free flowing stream or sit gently atop a flowery dream,
Does she wonder as she falls whether she is going home or away.
Does she during the journey meditate on the experienced gained.
Does she flow to fulfill its destiny or is a mere part of larger destiny,
Irrespective of these questions she completes the journey
Maybe out of sheer will to reach the final place, or due to cosmic compulsion or may be both,
Does she enjoy her path or does she cry in vain,
Emotions are mere milestones that put to rest the above doubts
All that matters is what and the manner in which she leaves behind
After all she knows the pearl of wisdom in her heart and she follows it no doubt,
‘When on a journey, it’s best to enrich the path in way it enriches you.’
