Lawn Sequins


Sometimes I leave the house early to go to work 
or just to get coffee made by someone other than myself.
There's no telling what the morning will present -
a beautiful sunrise, fog lying low in the soccer fields,
or this, a lawn covered in dewy sequins.
It's as though I caught Mother Nature in her glorious 
gown just as she returned from a ball.


Sadly, there doesn't seem to be a way for me to capture 
the effect of the light on the droplets, to show you the sunlight
on the glorious green expanse of velvet lit by myriad 
sequins of light. Changing the angle or getting closer meant
reducing the twinkle that caught my eye in the first place.
