. Diamonds Disappear - Poem by Mary Havran

This morning there were diamonds
Dazzling the tree branches
Simple drops of dew
Transected by morning sunlight
Merely dewdrops
Waiting to dissolve

Chance circumstance alone allowed
Discovery of this treasure
Briefly on display

Waking just then
Making my way to the window
Just as the sun
Made its way to the place
Wear dewdrops were
Making for magic

Till diamonds disappeared

    It is truly amazing what beauty we miss by not opening our eyes!
    Well done.A ten from me.

    A delightful cameo, albeit a fleeting impression, but preserved faithfully with love. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply
