The Stone and the Raindrop

Donald P. Goodman III

Version 1.0,
The world has webs beyond our merely mortal lore; just as the stone which drops into the calmest pond can never see the ripples spread from shore to shore and lap upon the mud that lays so far beyond; and as the raindrop, falling on the arid soil and black'ning it with moisture cannot see the ends which rise from all its self-destroying, loyal toil, nor know the many sprouts and growth to which it tends; so no man can e'en hope to see with mortal eyes what thoughtless chore or conscious deed to cruel fate lends: for he who claims to see these circles clearly lies; we must entrust all ends to Him Who turns the skies.
