“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.





on grassy stems

are rainbow-sparkling

water gems.
