Elusive Life

The crisp morning air, 

The slow breaking dawn,

The tiny little Dew Drops,

Glistening in anticipation

Life giving green leaves,

Brilliant bright  petals,

Red, Yellow and Aquamarine blue

Covered by the tiny shiny Dew Drops…

Raise their faces to the glowing Sun 


 A thoughtless hand,

A swishing skirt,

A hurrying foot,

A careless wand

Brushes the dewdrops away

Unsung n yet unborn

The eager lil Dewdrops

Stilled before life began…..

    Nice poem. I love to get up early to watch the sun rise and walk through the dew saturated grass.

    A lovely tribute to often-neglected joie de vivre.

    Beautiful thoughts. Yes. Those little moments that may matter are so casually brushed off in the rush of life.
