One place understood helps us understand all places better.

A raindrop falls 
and perishes in the sun

A summer shower
has just begun

Another drop falls
and trickles down the gate

Up in the hollow
the waters wait

Until a downpour
swallows drop after drop

And the stream rises
and overtops

The banks and pasture

The flood announces
another year

Will be one of
replenish and repair

From raindrops
appearing in thin air.
