heartbreaking aqua
tears tearing from lashed sighs
run in wakes of blue
endless fountain of grief’s fall
wipe salt filled eyes

    This poem is a fine description of sorrow. "Salt"filled eyes are something all of us have known. Nice use of this Asian form! Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish

    Thanks Andie!!! line 4 for me was treated as a CUT...and it is the human hand i meant to allude to with the word wipe not the fountain I hope it ok?

    Deb, this one was wonderful and I noticed you got your cool title on there. What do you think? Should I call mine Seasonal Blues or just keep it Blue? A big congratulations, Deb, and if wipe refers to what the fountain does, I'd say wipes. Luv, Andrea
