A Drop of Water

This piece was created in 2021 for a composition competition on the topic of "Close View" and is the only piece to date whose text I wrote myself.

In this text, the lyrical self looks at a drop of water on a flower in which the light of the sun is refracted and reveals a world of its own, shimmering in all colors and full of life. But suddenly another drop of water tears the narrator out of his reverie: both drops of water fall onto a barren, scorched earth.

The poem connects the theme of the competition with climate change: the narrator dreams of a better world in an area that has become inhabitable due to climate change.
