One Drop in the Lake

On a dry chasm

Rain begins to fall

Marking the land

In wet spots

Dripping everywhere

Filling a lake

.

A calm lake

Smooth

Not a single drop

Of doubt

This is the truth

The glassy surface of what has transpired

.

From the reeds around

One drop falls

A waiting raindrop

Causing a ripple

Spreading doubt

Where it never was before

Making the “truth”

Be doubted

.

The ripple

Spreads across the stagnant water

Ruffling the algae

The skimming water bugs

Changing the lake

For a time

.

When the ripple

Spreads out fully

It is forgotten

As if it had never been

Never was

And the lake is like that

Until

The next rainfall
