Home everywhere

Morning dew
mixed with leftovers
from yesterday’s rain
rested upon the grass
early light sparkled
on each blade
sun reflected
colours of gold, silver
shimmering blue

Caught within each drop
a mirror
of all of the world
with binoculars
yet beyond
what the camera lens
could capture
enclosed in perfection

His world magnified
in smallness
making His home

another entry into Peter Pollock's Carnival about Home

Your poem is so beautiful. I liked your thought "making His home
everywhere" Even in the rain and left over dew !!

Infinite and finite together, beautifully portrayed and written about. Lovely!

Rainbows enclosed in perfection -- those tiny things are so vital, so significant. Well done, Karin.

"Caught within each drop
a mirror"...such a fascinating adventure to lean in close and see reflection in the drops.

If we peer through the right lenses ~ and we get to choose ~ we see miracles everywhere, every day. This piece is a lovely example thereof.
