Grief

on

grief

It is dark,

In the middle of the day,

The sun is overtaken by the

Sad cloud

That shed tears

In racking spasms

And bawls on the shoulder

On the earth

As it soaks up the anguish

And sways and rocks

A steady rhythm.

weeping in the rain
weeping in the rain

    Heaven’s tears
    A torrential pour
    Grief like none other
    Washing clean
    The earth’s woes.

      Awww! These are such touching words Walter. If only Heaven’s tears, rainfall; could indeed wash away the Earth’s woes, the world would be a very pure and beautiful place to dwell in, from the cleansing effects of the rain, and then there may be no need for a Heaven now, would there? If only……

    Hmmm, grief’s so well captured in this sombre piece, by tears overflowing. I’m however not sure ’bout the part, that it soaks up anguish. Does it really?

    You do great always with your sombre and sad pieces. Should I urge you on to keep ’em coming then? At this point, I’m totally lost for words Doc; there’s simply no stopping you in your quest for writing these solemn masterpieces. Plenty thumbs up! *shaking ma head*

      well, what is there not to grief about? just look around you….

      1. Yemie says:

        Sure, there are a whole lotta things to grieve ’bout, but should we give in easily to ’em without putting up a fight? Do we become defeated by ’em or strive really hard to make better our situations? Which brings to my remembrance that beautifully inspiring line ‘when life throws you a lemon; snatch it up and make a chilled glass cup of fresh, sweet lemonade’.

          yes, but we can also bemoan our loss…to an acceptable level before we pick ourselves up and move on

So, what do you think?
