In Greek mythology, Ersa is the Goddess of Dew.

Alaine - what an incredible shot. Love the tiny dew drops on the strand of spider web - looks like sparkling diamond beads.

Alaine said...

Hello Ruthie in Scotland; thanks for coming over and I hope you're having a lovely day.

Thankyou Susan - hugs!

Tracy, have a wonderful week and hugs too!

Hello Bonnie, DMJ took this the morning he took the spider web pic. It looks great blown up.

Steven, to tell you the truth, I didn't know of her until I composed the Haiku but I did enjoy Greek mythology in High School, the little we touched on.

Yes, our Summer's nearly here but the warnings are dire; so little water and even more dangerous than last Summer, with those dreadful bushfires. Makes me want to wish it away for the relief of Autumn!

Lyn, thankyou, I do enjoy writing Haiku; it only works for me when I'm really 'taken'.

Hi Alaine,

I'm glad I'm in good company because I didn't know of Ersa either. But I did check Wikipedia before I saw your first comment! Simple and beautiful, words and picture. Nothing else necessary.

Thankyou so much, Derrick.
