Banyan Tree - The Dew Drop
by Life Positive
Proud of its simple
beauty, it was very content. Around it
were other dew drops, some on the
same leaf and some on other leaves
round about. The dew drop was sure
that it was the best, the most special
dew drop of them all.
Ah, it was good to be a dew drop. The wind rose and the plant began to shake, tipping the leaf.
|The wisdom of the wise is an uncommon degree of common sense.|
The dew drop reached the edge of the leaf. It was terrified, certain that it would be smashed into a thousand pieces below, sure that this was the end. The day had only just begun and the end had come so quickly. It seemed so unfair. It seemed so meaningless. It tried desperately to do whatever it could to cling to the leaf, but it was no use.
Finally, it let go, surrendering to the pull of gravity. Down, down it fell. Below there seemed to be a mirror. A reflection of itself seemed to be coming up to meet the dew drop. Closer and closer they came together until finally...
And then the fear transformed into deep joy as the tiny dew drop merged with the vastness that was the pond. Now the dew drop was no more, but it was not destroyed.
It had become one with the whole.
