Your tears sit on your cheeks,
pearls of inestimable value,
glittering sorrow diamonds
welling from a grief brutally honest
in its simplicity.
I see the beauty in its expression,
in the way each runs to its fellow
in its course to the forever sea.
each drop finds a mate,
and runs free and true and wild,
restless waves lit by
the seafaring sun,
soothing distant shores
with its ancient lullaby.
Beautiful, Melody. Your poetry and your photos bring warmth to my heart. Bless you.
Thank you so much, Lizzie! It is people like you who make this journey a joy. Checking my blog is not a sacrifice, when I can look forward to such wonderful support! 🙂
I love this one. Like diamonds, tears in the right setting are lovely.
