Dew drops bedazzle and are well worth a morning’s search.
When found floating upon the Elephant Ear, they offer a glimpse into a world where “thoughts are slow and deep and golden.”
It is the morning pause and will not last the light of day. Its purpose is not longevity. I like to think it is how long it lingers in me.
With gratitude, here is the full quotation from Steinbeck’s Tortilla Flats:
It is a time of quiet joy, the sunny morning.
When the glittery dew is on the
mallow weeds, each leaf holds a jewel which
is beautiful if not valuable.
This is no time for hurry or for bustle.
Thoughts are slow and deep and golden
in the morning.
