The other day, I happened to be the Kampala Sheraton Hotel
For a “cocktail party” that doubled as their “Caribbean Night”
And then, while there, I observed something happening in the water, at the swimming pool area where we were sitting
That I would like us to share about
We were sitting right there with Mummy
Enjoying our drinks and bites that were going around
I had just taken a sip off my glass
When I saw a drop of rain bounce unto the water of the pool
And child oh child
I saw a beauty walk by!!!
Floating and flowing majestically, if you may
From where it dropped off to the end of the pool
Seeminglessly with so little effort and lots of elegance
You know, the way the decorative lights shine on the water and pull off this glitter of serenity and calm?
That was it exactly
I watched on as the water-drop “swam” away in a vibrating motion
Leaving behind temporary marks of the path across
Bouncing off like nearly-dry cloth lying out in the wind
How can beauty like this always go unnoticed by so many of us?
To the point that we curse whoever created rain, for “allowing it to fall on us” and mess up our divine wears?
How? Just how?
What do you think about ripples?
