Drop (Elephant Revival)

Once I was a big drop of water. I was in the desert. I was in high, Was in high demand. Saw you turn, saw you turn, turn away. Water came down, hit the dry ground. Lost all the facts, slipped through the cracks. Spread around, Under and down. Down through the ground Carry on, now beyond Past where all the dancing rain like thunder After laughter and the music did resound To where the thunder became something Like the pulsing of the flowers Which is something like but the nothing like the pulsing of the hours. But the hour was on time because I sipped into a flower Recalled the time to climb the vine, A honeysuckle tower. I was water brought to lifted leaves Of daffodils and day lillies. Drank into the grace of trees The aspen's eye the willows weep. It hung so low It touched below The surface of A still puddle. Did I behold Reflection told Looking back at me The eyes of my body. So I jumped in Back into my skin And sang this song Of where I'd been. Once I was a big drop of water. I spread around and became part of many living in the land. Saw you turn when I turned, turned away. In the still, in the still water. And we're still water.
