A black windowless room is half filled with liquid.
A single drop falls from the celing.
You hear the two meet; silence ensues.
You can’t help but wonder, how far did the ripple go?
Did they reach the walls?
Or meet an obstacle along the way?
A raindrop outside the room feels the ripple.
It hopes one day to find its way into the room.
