Your Smile



Missing You!

A Sure Sign Of Autumn

Is Silence Golden?

Begin Anew

Life Is Like A River

Heartbreaking

Childhood Memories

Dew-drops are the gems of morning,
  But the tears of mournful eve!
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Youth and Age


Dew-drops, Nature's tears, which she
  Sheds in her own breast for the fair which die.
    The sun insists on gladness; but at night,
      When he is gone, poor Nature loves to weep.
      - Philip James Bailey

dew on grass Pictures, Images and Photos
 
Looking out on this beautiful morning

Head full of childhood memories

One special memory in particular

I recall is that of wet grass

I didn't know then

But I know now

My siblings and myself would rise early

In the morning

Eager to go outside to play

We would ask my mother

If we could go outside to play

She would always say,

"The grass is still wet"

She then would say,

"Wait until the grass dries"

Little did I know then

That the grass was wet with morning dew

I later learned that morning dew was nature's tears

Morning dew covered all the earth

Leaves, flowers, trees, everything

We waited for the grass to dry

For mother did not want us to

Play in wet grass, nature's tears

The grass would soon dry

We would go outside to play

Oh, what splendor in the grass
