Contemplation





Have you ever gazed upon a raindrop, a dewdrop, a teardrop...

Each one yielding a reflection of light, encapsulating a rainbow of possibilties. They capture a little world within; a promise, purity, an enlightenment.

Raindrops unite to become rainfall and bring moisture to the earth, bringing flowers, trees and crops to life. It is a fundamental necessity for without it we shall die.

Dewdrops that dance on the lawn, an accumulation from the evening coolness that lingered until dawn. A delectable treat to walk barefoot through in the early morning light, causing the tiny prisms of color to twinkle beneath one's toes.

And a teardrop encompassing the feeling of sadness or heartache. But these transparent drops that travel down the cheek may also reflect laughter, joy and overwhelming gaiety.

As you set about the week ahead may you be greeted by raindrops that bring flowers to your door. Kick off your shoes and walk barefoot through the morning dew. Shed a little tear for those less fortunate than yourself or laugh 'till it brings tears to your eyes.

Life is good, drink it in and enjoy.

Oh, how beautifully said! I love this post and the photos that illustrate it. I have a couple dewdrop photos to share in a few days ~ my husband borrowed my camera one morning, and instead of picking the flowers, he photographed them for me!

Beautiful post, Susan! We're expecting some rain here tonight. I've planted some zinnia and alyssum seeds - so it would be welcome. Here's to spring finally coming to your corner of the world.

Wonderful words! Is there nothing more beautiful than a dew lined web? I am patiently awaiting them here! Only a few raindrops today.. there hasn't been any in a couple weeks. Perhaps it is a trade for an early display of leaves! Hope all is well with you and yours!

What a beautiful post Miss Maddie! I've not contemplated the meaning og dewdrops and tears before your words. I'm going to copy this and think about all you share.

Thank You!! for taking the time to leave a comment about the bust. I did it for my mom and the feedback through the blogosphere is simply amazing!!

Miss Maddie,

Your beautiful tribute to rain and dew drops brings to mind, Masaru Emoto and his remarkable discoveries about water. Everyone should be aware of how the mind can enhance or destroy water with thought.The water beneath your feet, Susan, is no doubt, pristinely beautiful.
