Dream of a droplet

I dream to be
a tiny drop in the Sea,
only then would I
fathom the depths of its emotions,
feel its turmoil
pulsating in tides,
as they ebb and flow
in relentless toil.

Yes, I crave to be
that tiny drop in the sea,
swirling in the salts
a million rivers bleed,
seeking salvation
beneath the awning
of celestial skies, cleansing
in His divine light.

Oh! I pray to live
a dream of that drop in Sea,
to be a drop of rain
to quench the thirst of a seed
whose fate hangs
between life and death.
Only then shall I
be appeased…

wonderful meanings conveyed through out your lines.
The last stanza gave me an idea. What do you think if you let each stanza expresses a wish to be a drop for example an ocean, a sea and a river. As I see the last stanza has no consistant logic as you started with a drop in the sea then a drop of rain.

However, that was only a suggestion. As I said, I really loved the concept behind this and how you have crafted it.
Thanks for sharing this.

This poem I had written for World Environment Day. I had forgotten about it till I recently saw that a dear friend, who is a woman of great virtues, has published it on her website. Since I noticed that I had not published it here, thought of doing so.

I always appreciate your comments, especially when you find time to visit at a time when a lot of your time is being devoted to the ongoing workshop being jointly hosted by Wesley & you.

As for your comment about inconsistency noticed in the concluding verse, I wish to bring to your notice that, what was meant was "the drop in the sea evaporates to take a form of rain drop before descending back on earth to quench the thirst of a seed" ...having said that do you think there is no break in consistency or do you feel it still lacks it. Would welcome your critic on that.

Of course after your clarification, it makes much sense.I am sorry I have missed this at my first read.
I thought maybe another title will do the job of showing your intent. Maybe something like "A dream of a rain drop"?
Just a thought.
Thanks for sharing.

you should be '''apart'' from a drop of water

as you want to have an experience

being just a drop in the ocean
you will merge unknown of any existence

all said and done
you should be a drop of something
which does not dissolve in the water
to fathom the experience
which you so eagerly are wanting

say a drop of mercury
to see the depths of the fathomless sea/ocean may it be
hope I'm not off the sea totally....

if so it may be only me
give me an opportunity to flee..
will ye?

Appreciate your read and comment. Thanks for stopping by..
