Drop Apart

Lucky to be
a drop
and not
the ocean

I shall be
in a cloud
for you, for
better a plink
on a cheek
than a washout

Would we want to be and know everything all at once? I think we draw boundaries around pieces of “everything”. The part of us that is the observer can not observe itself at any given moment. To be anything is to not be the whole. To be the whole is to be nothing(not individual).

    That is so true!! How can a whole be perceived as something unless it individuates?
