Windshield Sparkle

driving towards dawn,
diamonds shimmer and glisten:
water drops on glass

I couldn't find a picture of waterdrops sparkling like diamonds on glass, but this picture captures the sparkle that they had. The little diamonds would move up the windshield as I accelerated, sometimes merging into drops too large to sparkle any more, and sometimes larger droplets would break apart, making more little diamonds in the sunlight. The image is from Wikimedia Commons. Btw, a search for "droplets" there produces some fantastic results!
