It’s Thursday and time for Sue Vincent’s Writephoto challenge.
For visually challenged writers, the image shows a beach in the half-light, bounded by dark dunes and holding a silvery pool of water that mirrors the sky.
This is The Pool of Tears,
Silver tears dropped by moonlight,
Tinged with bronze as a new day dawns.
The rippled sand caresses as it soothes,
Absorbing the pain of her sorrow.
The Sun asks why his Sister is so sad,
She answers she is alone,
The stars are bright but distant,
Collapsing worlds not yet visible
To the human eye
And by the time they are,
There is nothing left of their origins.
Is this the way it will be?
A single beacon in a night sky
Shedding tears for what has been lost.
