What Am I? - Poem by nithya raghavan

What am i?
a speck of dust
that settles on the
skin of a lemon,
a single droplet
of rain that falls
from the sky
to penetrate the earth
and get buried in
the ground, hard,
immune to anything,
a sand particle
that dwells in the
middle of the desert,
a hump on the back of
a camel, bearing the
burden of carrying
me through the path
God has laid before me,
the small breath
in the lengthy strand
of breeze casually
flowing out of the
divine nostrils,
a footprint on the soft soil
that may vanish any second,
a miniscule creature
dwelling in the gift box
of several galaxies
and universes such
that a microscope stretching
from the heavens
may be required to see me,
Oh but what really
am i? A single letter
that may be erased
and replaced with another
letter shedding the
fragrance of the
same sound, same meaning,
written in a novel
of Silence and space
authored by the
conscience of the divine.................
