The Precipitation of Tears

On the streets of London, Manchester
and Kabul
In the homes of Syria, Paris
and Mosul
Is there a Richter Scale
to measure the sadness?
Or a depth in fathoms
to describe the grief?
Can the precipitation of tears
be gauged to tell us
when the weeping will end?
Is all this, this heartbreak
how it will always be?

 

 

One thought on “The Precipitation of Tears

  1. Lovely Sandy. As for your question it’s certainly how its always been in the history of humans. Change happens on the microscale though – each seemingly inconsequential interaction we have at the bus stop, in the supermarket, at work etc is a chance to demonstrate the kind of actions we want to see in the world.
