Falling on Honeyed Grass

Imagine yourself falling gently on grass,
wherein soft earth embraces you warmly.
Each drop of dew then tells you its story,
of how it broke free from its cage of glass.
You drink each bead, intrigued by what it has,
that makes you want more, that makes you thirsty.
A myriad of flavors, that changes daily,
 it never grows stale, no due dates to pass.

From bright kaleidoscopic waterfalls,
some honeyed mist found its way to this well,
which I’ve wished upon with this coin I threw…
And this is why I do not mind at all,
that I have stumbled, then tripped and then fell…
on earth that is you, that’s drunken me with dew.

    Dear Nikko, This is really lovely and uplifting. It inspires me to want to stop my busy day and write again. I too have been having computer problems and my computer keeps freezing and I have to manually turn it off. Wish I knew more about computers. I spent my birthday doing reiki at the hospital on patients and then my daughter and husband brought their baby over to my delight. Caring for her while my daughter works is the joy of my life. Thank you for the B.day greetings. It was so sweet and thoughtful of Andie to mention my b.day in her blog. Love, Lotus

    Hi Nikko, love the way you use nature to tell a story with a deeper meaning. I think I hear what you have said. Luv. Elizabeth

    HI on this one again. Was it in the sonnet contest? It may not have perfect meter, but gosh darn, it's very creative!! thanks for your two comments. I was just looking at my cell phone and it occurred to me. oh my gosh, I could have used this for the froggy/lily pad contest, but I already had my fable up. Do you think I was better off to enter the fable, Nikko? hope to see you soon in emails. Luv, Andrea

    Hello my dear Nikko I had pretty bad experience of internet connections when I went home. It is doubly frustrating to get connected in the barrios. May your wishes come true in every coin you threw! Good luck in your entry. All my love Dalila

    Hullo Pikkochu, how goes you? Wot's up with your new avatar? Are you "shell-shocked", or maybe a bit "crabby"?? Big props on this sonnet! I couldn't write a decent sonnet right now, if I tried.

    What a lovely poem on the beauty of nature, Nikko. I love the "kaleidoscopic waterfalls and the thought of lying softly on the grass in Earth's embrace. Beautiful! My fishing trip wasn't as good as last year's, but I do have plenty of fish. Wish I had your regular email address. Would like to stay in touch. Love, Carolyn

    Your connection is acting stale?...How is it that the WWW is never faithful to you gals in the Philippines? I don't get it!...I like how you described the dew in this sonnet...it reminds me of the many attributes of manna...wonderful imagination with cages of glass and each dewdrop having its own story...u got some kind of imagination, NIKKO. Things are going well with the family...I slowed myself down on purpose...catching up on a decade of needed rest!....u got some amazing entries in your earth hour contest...I saw a fab one today! Hugs to u 2.

    Hi there Nikko! Loved what you were alluding to here, the metaphor that permeated this entire sonnet. Such a neat way to approach this contest. Now, I LOVED lines 4 and 5. The metaphors really spoke to us, I enjoyed reading this. Cheers and congrats, Cyndi
