Rain Drops in Tokyo

Gray and rainy day in Tokyo.  Rain drops making their way down the window; a very beautiful, reflective, humbling dance.  Puts things in perspective, as we go about our daily busy-nesses and try to find our own ways to be thankful on this thanksgiving wknd...
As I sit here, busy with important, yet mundane, matters, and try to find a balance between reflecting and living in the moment, between living in the here and now, and in the nows down the horizons of time, the flow of some of the drops down my window made me write this.

In the moment
With its momentum
The rain drop slides down the window
Purposeful, making its way to its potential
Does it know it is the rain?


And then the 5-7-5 spirit of the Haiku, led to this...

In the moment, raindrop slides
With its momentum, purposefully down the window
Does it know it's rain?

A lovely post to read on my birthday. A reminder of "Maya" the illusion of the ego, the forgotten....the realization there is no such thing as tomorrow, the future is a concept and the past is created in the present. Tokyo is a magical place for reminding you or removing the veil of thought :) They like to call it Ji-Ji-muge.

Hi! A rejoinder of sorts for the lines you wrote.
"The momentum gives
it weight
then it's a bit too late
for the raindrop to stop
it's descent
And then it becomes one
With the land from where it began
And complete its journey
Only to start again
And come down as rain"
Regards,
M
