Dancing like dew

I love the early mornings

And the dew

Bejewelled leaves

That transforms ordinary leaves

Into something extraordinary –

Diamond

Into a bejewelled world

Of dancing rainbows,

Reminding me of one of my favourite quotations:

Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf. — Tagore

Leafy dew copy
