The Raindrop Is the Whole Ocean

Well, a bubble can’t last long, and a raindrop, what’s a raindrop for but to join the throng? Somehow they were aimed for the exact same moment in time, and they got there together. Then they were – what were they? The bubble opened, and was the whole sky, reaching as far as it wished. And the raindrop was the whole ocean, going where it pleased.
