“A Recipe For Dew” by Celia Berrell

Leave a comment

A recent rain

to quench and share.

A cloudless night

to cool the air.

 

The slightest breeze

to chill on cue

the grass and leaves.

Here comes the dew.

 

The stage is set

for dawn’s sensation.

Jewel-studded

condensation.

 

Blanket-strewn

on grassy stems

are rainbow-sparkling

water gems.
