I have taken up the Inktober challenge this year. It is a first for me and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Today’s theme or prompt was wet and this is what I came up with. I call this, ‘The elixir of life’.
It was a mere bud, closed shut against the light,
As I walked past on that warm summer‘s evening.
She poured it’s entirety into each crevice
Transforming every nook of the #landscape.
But, I couldn’t see all that.
I grumbled at the dampness that the rain left in my clothes.
Then the splash of water from the puddle,
As I walked #home one evening, did not help my #spirits either.
I could not bear the #sight and #sounds of the downpour now.
I saw her.
The closed little bud had blossomed.
The incessant raindrops didn’t seem to disturb me now
‘Cause the beauty of the bloom enraptured me.
The same water drops that drove me mad were the same
Drops that had made the flower wet and transformed her.
The same drops of water now seemed like, the elixir of life.
