a single drop of dew



time is engraved on the pale green faces 
of the floating lotus leaves. 
our hearts are a sea, a lake, 
finally a little pond, where 
spider webs interlock over the round leaves, 
and below them our longing 
is only a single drop of dew.

I'd have thought it was the other way round - our hearts start small like a drop of dew and grow to be the size of the sea!
