Behold how this drop of seawater
has taken so many forms and names;

it has existed as mist, cloud, rain, dew, and mud,
then plant, animal, and Perfect man;
and yet it was a drop of water
from which these things appeared.
Even so this universe of reason, soul, heavens, and bodies,
was but a drop of water in its beginning and ending.”

A Drop of Seawater by the Sufi poet Al Shabistari

    Having recently watched (again) The Hobbit: Battle of the 5 armies, that brown thing ?twig reminds me of a wereworm and the droplets are rampaging orcs. Sorry, my mind works in strange ways. Lovely photos.
