she can’t tell any
more whether the leaves
are damp with dew or mist
or tears. it’s been too many
years since she’s been
heard, or held. yes,
she is falling, too,

Prompted by the amazing visual talents of Kelly Letky, over at Toads.
The amazing title is her gorgeous spill of words, also.

    What a lovely interpretation ~ The sadness is palpable ~

  3. I love the title as well. and the way the shape of your poem mimics the art. Or maybe it’s a question mark. Or a tear drop.

    “she can’t tell any” … It’s so unbearable when you’re carrying something heavy and you just can’t talk to anyone about it. This is beautiful. And so sad. Love the rain/tear drop shape. And all that emotion in so few words.

Use your words.
