The Pearl

A single drop of rain fell from a cloud in the sky
But was filled with shame when it saw the sea so wide.
'Next to the sea then, who am I?

If the sea exists, then how can I?'
While looking down on itself
With the eyes of contempt,
An oyster in its shell,
Took it in for nourishment.
And so it was, that its fate was sealed by this event,
And it became a famous pearl to adore a king's head.
Having descended to the depths,
It was now exalted to the heights.
On the portal of non existence it went knocking,
Until it finally was transformed into being.......(Sadi)
