Turned My Tears Into Dew Drops



The Sun caught me crying and turned my tears into due drops

It sprinkled it on pretty flowers and green leafy plants

It turned the rest of it into fog

The atmosphere, humid and emotional

The landscape like a painting on canvas

Warm air, wet wind, a glaze of haze

Due drops settled into fresh water ponds

Soon the frogs began to croak

Eggs matured and tadpoles swam

Worms came out of the loose damp soil

Snails crawled out of their shells

The earth made magic out of my tears

Tears turned into due drops
