Drop Of Water - Poem by Eleanor ...

A dropp of water
Shattered the surface
Of depths where darkness
Paints with its crayons
A life so senseless
A work so senseless
Though art.

The dropp of water
So cruel. Why shatter?
You just broke the mirror
And then disappeared
But I am to live
With the splinters.
