The Ache in Heaven’s Heart

From deep in the throat
of the sky, a sob and then
another.  Closer now
and louder, borne
by insistent wind.
Only a fool would wonder
what stirs the weather so.
For sure we foolish humans
have given ample reason
for heaven’s tears
to flow.

  1. Hi Sarah

    Such a perfect picture to accompany this poignant but beautifully personified poem! Indeed, Heaven and His entire earth is grievous for what we as a global society have done to this planet. We have abused the gifts she offered and ruined the environment with pollution, greed, war and so much more. I feel the depth of sorrow in your poem and the reactive landscape expressing its grief. Lyrical and powerful, this one haunts with its beauty and its anguished voice —

    Only a fool would wonder
    what stirs the weather so.
    For sure we foolish humans
    have given ample reason
    for heaven’s tears
    to flow.

    Thank you for this,
    take care

  2. Yes, indeed, we have been given much.

    And have caused so much pain
    by not being good caretakers of the earth,
    of each other, and of our children.

    Good to read about the painful truth.
    take care,
    Kerri

    • Kerri,

      It always makes the day brighter when we hear from you.
      Your responses keep the muse trying and the ink flowing.
      I read your work often and always hope for more soon.
      I understand the time constraints. Keeping you and yours
      always close.

      Sarah
