Water and Iguana ~ photo by Patrice

Drip, drip of falling rain
Settles deep down the drain.

Is my life like that rain?

Have I flushed myself away?

Can I grasp strands of grace, gratitude
Interspersed with love
Pulling up myself to stay
in a world not only to survive
But live a life
Where I don’t want to die.
