! Soul - Poem by Raveendran N.V.

Each dropp of rain
Longs to reach the core

Each mountain spring
Each river
Yearns to reach the nest

What is their end?
Who is it that attracts them?

The ocean has a womb
Where awaits the core, the nest
The soul of the drop.

    A lyrical description of the yearning of all life to reach its source. Love your description of the womb of the sea and the nest of the sea like the womb shape of the pelvis which is the nest of the swadhishana chakra - the water centre) . It's all about letting go, it seems to me. A soul-filled read. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    Great words of wisdom;
    As all to begin with a dropp of rain

    WOW, really nice to reflect on: 'What is their end?
    Who is it that attracts them? ' - Thanks!

    The soul of the dropp or the dropp of the Soul. Another poem with unique vision and powerful statement. (Report) Reply

    At first I felt the use of 'nest' in a piece with images of water, was a mixed metaphor, that I had some difficulty with. However, I'm writing because I found 'the ocean has a womb...' quite powerful. And I certainly hear what you're saying!
    On 2nd reading, the nest image did not put me off as much, either.

    Beautifully expressed. More than worthy of a ten. Take care.

    Warm regards,
