Dew


Photography by Sharon Johnstone



in morning's bosom, dew drops lie
for snow storm has passed in a blink
melting ice flakes like bubbles ink 
                                                                                
receiving light, first pure breath's sigh
a new season comes, the clouds bawl
soaking garden in raindrops shawl


how dew flares, gazing up the sky
what's hard & grizzled are soft whey
as world turns to silver bouquet
                                     
hands open to cusp, angled nigh 
on grass blade, a triumphant tear     
to welcome the new day with flare  
                                         
crystals descend, untied, wide eyes
how easy to let go of blues
sway to inner sun, one & true

  2. smiles...cool last line...dew is one of those little magics of the world...adding little diamonds everywhere it touches...keeping the cycle of life going with water whish we all need to survive...as a system the process is pretty amazing...ha..i am about to slip into Earth Science mode if i dont watch it...cool verse...i could use this when i teach the water cycle...smiles.

    keeping my thoughts & fingers crossed...smiles.

  9. just let go and enjoy the day, can be easy indeed. But snow, still has to go. Dew can stay though

  10. This form lends itself to lyrical verse, and your poem really lifts the mood with your theme of letting go.

  11. Graceful as the falling dew. Grace, I like the form and rhyme scheme too. Shall we call it "Graceful"?
