Momentum

Raindrops move quickly, down, from sky and cloud, to leaf, then branch, on to tree trunk, trickling down to earth. Each drop follows the path of least resistance. If one had legs, it would seem to be running, galloping, cantering; a racehorse nearing an indeterminate finish line. Mighty with energy, each drop conforms to passing droplets, bonding and snowballing into a force to be reckoned with. This rushing force changes streams to rivers, rivers run to lakes and lakes grow pregnant, becoming reservoirs, back-up plans in times of drought.
