Tears to Selah

by Larry H. Spruill

Potent tears pooled
in silent sullen hearts
carrying currents
of suffering and pain
flowing as spewed crimson lava
a stream-like cauldron
of dashed hopes
and dissipated dreams
crashing into the cooling waters
of a crescent turquoise seaside bay
at the foot
of a troubled temperamental mountain
misti-fying the sugar coated beaches,
forested hills and lush green (emerald) valleys of life
sprinkling the looking glass
of our earthy souls
falling as creative Edenic rain
washing the perpetual hurt
and disappointments peculiar to
creatures like you and I…
enabling us to trust ourselves
while looking to the Unseen One…
to feel again…
to start again…
again and again…
