One day, drops of water cascaded down from the storm clouds...
..they sought out the river meandering across the earth, visible from so very high.
The river came to the rapids, where it rushed and rushed down the hills and through the valleys, leaping and splashing among the rocks.
Until at last it met the welcoming waves...
...and joined in the frothing surf, sparkling and dancing...
...lifting and sustaining the plants and all life...
... then plunged down through the wild swirling depths...
...to share in the dance of water and light, one with the ocean at last.
