Water Drop

A dew!
A dew!
I noticed a dew
forming on a leaf
this morning.
I looked from the bottom,
it’s color was blue.
I looked from the top,
it’s color was green.
Then against the sun I saw
inside it held a rainbow.
I breathed too close
and it slid.
The leaf bent just a little
to let it glide.
For a second it held on
to the tip of the leaf
before…
Adieu!
Adieu!
It splashed to the ground.
