Droplet Strings [REVISED]


A visual memory of rain
becoming a cloth of fine
lace framing the shining
fluorescence of grass &
soft green of trees

Translucence of crystal string
droplets adorning the eaves;
a view-master picture deep
in perspective; transfixed,
I try to imprint its beauty

On the screen of my mind
to recall enchantment of
this world forever

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
