Water Drops

Water drops
From the skies
My eyes
Unable to see
The horizon
Eyes on
The heart
Wet from drops
That fall
While it falls
Waiting to be filled
Life giving
Drops flow
Over parched areas
Of land and sand
Rivers, please flow
In deserts of my soul
Pour into emptiness
Drop upon drop
To make it a pool,
Then a lake
To take the lack
Away as I sit
In the stillness
Where I am called
And balling gives way
To silence
And hearing
Toward the horizon
To see and know
You would never go
Without me
But with me
You sit
In stillness
To be
And catch
Every drop that falls
From the skies…
From my eyes…
