story telling: self-portrait

I am a drop of dew 
Hanging from a leaf 
Yet I am not unrestful 
For on this branch I seem to have existed 
From before the birth of the world.

    1. Thank you Suzanne. It did take a bit of pondering…then “impermanence” had me on a search for water/dew drops. I’m looking forward to seeing your image.

      1. I love the way you have contemplated this. The image I am posting is similar but I thinking more about yin and yang and trying to find the balance.
