Thank Humans for National Poetry Day

 
 
My tears are precious

Showing

Things I never knew

Or had forgotten

 

In life right now

They come

To show

What is right

 

Not wrong

A joyful sign

A flood so long

Dammed now flows

 

Sound follows

Breath drawn in jerks

Sometimes a noise

But not of pain

 

In the breaks of calm

My thoughts are clear

And if I need direction

My tears are there

 

I thank the humans

Who brought me here

I see a rainbow

In a tear

 

 

Lucid
