A drop of water

Imagine being the size of a water droplet in a glass half full.

High above the glassy rim circles round out of site. Like some solemn crystalline megastructure. Dwarfing and leaving you in awe. Tall, smooth, transparent walls rise up to meet it. Encompassing you and giving the air of a lofty cathedral ceiling.

The water around is perfectly still. Like a clam lake frozen in time. The ambient blue shines gently all around, filling the air with calm serenity. Light streams in a diagonal, shimmering on part of the liquid and casting a soft shadow on the other. Each side beckons you to visit. The dark in its clam, smooth tone of light. The bright with its vibrant and happy atmosphere.

Below are the clear watery depths, friendly yet slightly mysteries. The surface kingdoms of light and shadow extend down to the bottom of the glass. The dark would harbor octopus, moray eels, sailfish and the like. The seascape being composed of rock and sand. The light would keep all manner of tropical fish, dolphins, and sea stars. All living in a colorful reef. It would be a miniature sea, contained within large glass walls.

Those glass walls that remind us that it is just a glass. This is just a poem. And we aren’t the size of a water drop. But…what if we were?
