Dew on a Rose

Have you ever seen a vision
More beautiful in its repose
Than the sparkling crystal glisten
Of morning dew upon a rose?

How the sweet and gentle dewdrops
Caress the tender petals slowly,
And the early light of morning
Reflects the splendor of  its glory.

Through this everyday occurrence
Nature tells us all it knows;
Love is everywhere around us
Like the dew upon a rose.

Terry Woodson

terry, this is exquisite, perfect imagery...

Than the sparkling crystal glisten
Of morning dew upon a rose?

How the sweet and gentle dewdrops
Caress the tender petals slowly,
And the early light of morning
Reflects the splendor of  its glory.

very well written.
thank you for you very kind reply to my work
take care, jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

TerryW~
This is just gorgeous !
Absolutely so soft and casual
as to make it seem vivid enough
to reach out and touch.
I like what you do with images.

Such soft, feathery beauty here!  The title pulled me in also, and like Elizabeth, I'm glad it did!  Wonderful work!
