I saw you crying...

I saw you crying
in the blue
with eye wide open
to accept
the real life,
the bitter truth
about me,
my hasty step...

The tears
so helplessly
touched ground
in desperation
something change:
the seasons,
power taking,
wounds,
the feelings
suddenly emerged…

I saw the light
in every drop
before it lost
the shape
in swoon..-
the trees,
the chroniclers
recapped
the water path
on face of moon…

  9. The moon sees all, I think; and hopefully after the tears will come some kind of renewal and refreshment, which the moon will see as well.

  13. I don't know .. I get angry when someone creates pain to enjoy how it plays out, no matter how luscious the description. Very interesting placement of this witness, so we can forget it--almost--by the end.
