"Creatively Seeks New Passage" 

Miniature rivers
fashioned by compliant rain drops
invent small dams
when blocked by the smooth gray stones    
The water in each mini-pond swells
while the stones themselves, the obstacles,
retain the water, holding it prisoner.
Undefeated, the rising water
creatively seeks new passage,
seemingly guided by an unseen hand
the rain drops set themselves free,
blazing downward trails to the forest floor.
Be it stalled by the height of a mountain
or the depth of a small pond
each rain drop unfailingly finds
      its way to the sea,
its transitory home.
Smooth gray stones, water droplets and green foliage
