    It is a beautiful bead of dew. And now it has its own haiku too. Sort of. You're like a modern day Keats! 😉

    This was fun! I love that this isn't the typical syllable count for a haiku because it adds to the overall character and charm of this piece. This reminds me of an inside joke my parents have where every time they go on a hike my mom has to stop and take 100 pictures of flowers and she doesn't even like flowers... Hahah! I'm not sure it makes sense why it's funny, it's just one of those things!
