Once Upon A…

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?

  1. I like the perspective the raindrop putting pain right side up: “If only we could learn to filter our everyday problems and deep sorrows through a raindrop to gain perspective. “

  2. like being in an upside down house – troubles are just unsolved equations and you are so right, all we need is a new or different perspective.
