Once again I am combining prompts. The Tuesday Challenge at d’Verse Poets is to create a new twist on the old fairy tale beginning by starting our poem with “Once upon a ___.” The Heeding Haiku challenge at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie has given us the theme of “raindrops shimmer”.
Once upon a shimmering raindrop, nature existed in an upside down otherworldly sphere. The towering trees and twinkling sun were all topsy turvy in miniature, yet they remained beautiful. Light refracted gave a new perspective to all the world’s beauty. If only we could learn to filter our everyday problems and deep sorrows through a raindrop to gain perspective. Would they seem so difficult viewed through this new lens? Would their miniature nature help to ease the enormity of their pain right side up?
