Fallen on Green

"Beauty is the shadow of God on the universe."
Gabriela Mistral

Like a shard 
Fallen from one of the orange-red planets
Fallen from the hot sky
Fallen on a weary summer day
This tiny piece of heaven is
Fallen—fragile yet unbroken
Fallen onto the green leaves and grass 
Fallen softly, slipped from God's hand
Like a painted china cup
