Washing My Wine Glass

Watching water droplets fall through the air
and I am suddenly rendered speechless —
who could describe the perfect suchness
of falling water, grace falling through space,
crystal drops forming into tiny falling things,
wetness which dreams itself into discreet drops,
moisture sliding down the smooth sides of glass,
wine glasses washed clean and held upside-down
to drip-dry, retaining the dripping remnants of water
in their glassiness, a clear liquidity which flows down
the arching glassine transparency of its own perfect form,
reforming itself into exquisite drops of itself, moving freely
through a miraculous atmosphere of keen molecular airiness
with all of the natural grace of water droplets in free descent,
water slowly dripping itself into the pure open spaciousness
of primordial whateverness with the truly glad graciousness
of just a single drop at a time, the destiny of water drops
sliding down the glass and into a white waiting sink?
