 Is a
 Thread of pearls.

Cool, isn't it, that if we can't afford to buy precious gems and jewels, nature provides pearl necklaces and diamonds (dew on grass in the morning) for free. Thanks, Mother/Father Nature!

Sometimes the thread breaks . . .

in a gust of wind the white dew
on the Autumn grass
a broken pearl necklace
