Earth’s tears

The time to cry has passed

and laughter has had its last

A certain melancholy

drowns in the holy

water of earth’s tears

Droplets flow down

its raw red cheeks

and the stream

winds its way slowly

to the river’s delta

pouring out into the ocean

forgetting its dreams

under the waves of desperation.
