Read introduction

It's been raining :) but seriously I was struck by the image of a raindrops starting in isolation then slowly joining up to form rivulets and the rivers. With each joining the flow become stronger and the individual rain drops less say in the direction. Then a I remembered a podcast on determinism and how each choice we make constructs a pattern, the more choices we make the less choice to choose a path different from the direction of the river. Its a Tanka but only loosely so.

No Choice but the River

...rain falls on windscreens
rivulets run to rivers
And each drop a choice
a choice that offers tribute
til no choice but the river
