a drop of ink

A drop of ink can be

A thousand different things

  • A fish swimming under the sea
  • An eagle rising on its wings
  • A scribble twisted without thought
  • A line in thoughtful prose
  • Remembrance of a dream forgot
  • The contour of a rose

A drop of ink is

  • blood
  • and fears
  • and tears like salty sea

It’s

  • rain and
  • earth in flowing mud
  • and coffee
  • and green tea

It can be

  • whisky
  • rum
  • or wine

It is both

  • lock
  • and key.

But though the drop of ink is mine,

know that it is not me
