In One Drop Of Water - Poem by elysabeth faslund

Seek you the Bo Tree?
Incarnations of Krishna?
And, having found that
Tree...
Will the Maid from the
River
Feed you with Life?

I tell you...all knowledge...
All answers to the
Universe
Are in one dropp of
Water.

As all answers to Life
Are in one
Tear.

    Neat way of portraying a intersting thought about our tears...and just Life in general.Very expressive and just a solid piece of poetry.
    Thanx for sharing Elysabeth!
    Shelley

    I love the design. The stanzas shorten as the core of meaning converges on a single point. (Report) Reply
