A statement about the loss of love for person, spirit, Earth...; all things universal.
                   "The Sun Wept"

Sun wept
and monsoons ensued.
Agony hosted those disturbed
by the absurd development.

Dazzling light of love's heat gone.
Life dulled, cold, and soaked in tears.

A river's throbbing pulse
created a gnarled landscape with brutal erosion.
Unkempt shores portrayed grief; pining.
Yearning persisted to be convinced
there is possible healing.

Few flecks of Soul's once vibrant essence
peaked through the scene of carnage;
paused in prayer; hope for a renewed incarnation.

When love is lost,
even the sun will weep.
