Sunday 160: Tears

Silent tears emerge and flow
upon the banks
of the Smoky Hill River  
when she suddenly realizes
 this is the very first time
she has ever known
and truly felt love

I hope they are tears of joy. Of course, places like that often bring tears to my eyes for no other reason than being stunned by their beauty.

Alice Audrey said...

So sad to only realize it when it isn't fun.

I hope these were not tears for unrequited love or love that has split art. Such smokiness to your words.

This and That. Here and There. Now, Sometimes Then.
