MORNING DEW
(A Haiku)

A gift from the night
Jewels scattered on the grass
Soon to disappear

and
An Acrostic for good measure because I felt like it!

MORE MORNING DEW

Magical moisture from the sky
On the grass see the dewdrops lie
Rippling as the breezes blow
Night-time's gift to us below.
Iridescent pearls that shimmer
Numberless drops that gleam and glimmer
Gaily dancing see them appear.
*
Dewdrops! Each like a tiny tear
Evening does not boast such treasures;
Welcome to one of life's morning pleasures.

ONE OR THE OTHER

In heat or chill our world will end;
Some day, we know not when.
We only know that it will die.
It will be all over then.
We puny little human things
Will burn or we will freeze;
The deserts will take-over,
Or else the icy seas.
The final leaves that drift on down
Will be brown and scorched and charred,
Or else they will be shards of ice,
Brittle and blue and hard.
By red or white we'll be consumed,
As though we have never been,
So let us cherish what we have,
Rejoicing in the green.
