GETTING A LIFT IN A RAINDROP / Poem by Maria Dulce Leitao Reis

GETTING A LIFT IN A RAINDROP

I was on the road
Completely absorbed
Focused only
In my thoughts
An unexpected noise
Called me to reality
My eyes bumped
In a tiny pink cloud
Swinging in the dark sky
Threatening rain!

And there I was
Static
mesmerized
And feeling me
Strongly attracted
For a supposed magnet
I stopped resisting
And I let myself go …
I was there
For all eternity.
I don’t know how long
I clung to the cloud
Getting by osmosis its knowledge!

As the process proceeded
Peace settled
It was such a nice experience
When the operation was completed
I breathed happiness
There was no war any more
And I felt light as a feather
Then I hitchhiked to earth
Getting a lift in a raindrop!
