Red Tears




























Red Tears (words)

I hear their memories,
Calling!
Wafting across fields.
Floating.
Singing their final lullaby -
Weeping:
A harmony of voices,
Haunting...

Whispers drift over fields,
Calling!
Threads of their memories.
Floating.
Visions always lingering -
Weeping:
Staining the fallen leaves,
Haunting...


*Reflecting on why this poem came into being -
