Incipient: Power of a Water Drop

river rock structures

The incipient drop

fell down the rocks

carving a path

bypassing any road blocks


Others began to follow

reshaping the landscape

cascading rapidly

causing debris to escape


Down below

rapids begin to form

mighty sounds erupt

fed by a thunderstorm


There are formations

being carved into the rock

a natural artist

creating a landmark


There is much power

in each water drop

nourishment for the land

where the trees and bushes stop


Soon wildlife

come to explore the falls

food for birds and animals

fresh water for all


An incipient water drop

the power of one

the ability to change things

wonder to be done
