each drop a window

I wish we'd get some rain here, a window to some green trees maybe. :)

Máire Morrissey-Cummins's poem possesses tremendous clarity of scale, intensity of impact in the present moment, all the world distilled in one opened drop. Brilliantly crafted, dovetailing form and function. Pure joy and wonder. Thank you.
