WOW....what an amazing metaphor for loss and sadness. The "light" captured while its beauty is "suspended" in tears.

I don't need a picture to see the beauty that comes to mind when I read this, I imagine a frost frozen drop with a rainbow from the rain, I'm going to see if I can find the image, but what I get from your words is stunning beyond visual.

Excellent 'ku, Rick ... though inherently abstract, there's also a wealth of meaning in the first two lines. Tears capturing light from darkness ... a sadness that heals.
