Diamonds

Child, do you know what the dew drops on the grass really are? They are the tears of the Moon, from Luna. Sometimes at night the Moon Drops fall – Why? –She misses her lover, the Sun. The tears fall down gently, landing carefully among the grass and wildflower; pooling brightly in the leaves. They lay there all night, becoming hard and cold. Then just before dawn, the ones too heavy for their perches fall, sinking gently into the soil. Clinging to earth they dive down and down, becoming harder and colder. Then the sun comes up, warming the skin of the earth, turning the rest of Luna’s cold hard tears into the soft warm dew that melts in the grass.
