The Glue of Tears

Peace
on earth -
hollow words
in my ears.  Pain
and violence stain
the daily news.  Trying
to make sense of senseless acts
I grow numb - coping with extremes,
Wondering if broken shards of peace
can be made whole using  the glue of tears.

    A sentiment shared by many now. Seek internal peace - more lasting. Thank you for your kind comments on my poem. Shapes just take a little exra work - write the poem first, then arrange the words.

    Ann, you have captured the pain we are all hearing on the news these past few days, even here in Canada our hearts are broken, well done. Constance
