A raindrop falls into the sea
Sent from the Clouds above.
The impact sends ripples all around,
Concentrically spreading into the vastness of the sea.
The raindrop soon
Becomes attached to the sea,
Turning itself into seawater.
This rain drop was once sweet and pure
But it became salty.
Salty with the tears fallen into the sea of suffering.
So salty this water droplet became that it lost all of its past memories.
So cycling in the sea,
The little droplet was dragged,
Recklessly pushed around by currents,
Dipping down into the deep sea,
And flowing in different directions.
So cycling in the sea
Truth is that all things are impermanent
Thus came the day in which the once pure water droplet
The droplet was carried up on the back of a blind sea turtle.
Once the turtle rose up into the surface
The water droplet splashed into the air
And saw Everything,
The Beauty of Creation,
The vastness of the Sea of suffering,
The never-ending Horizon
Touching the Sky
With its Heavenly white clouds
And the Golden Sun.
Its warm rays embraced the water droplet,
Breaking its chains that bonded it to the Sea.
The once pure and sweet rain droplet was finally Awakened.
The little droplet remembered all of its past
And it became Free water vapor that ascended back into the welcoming Sky.
