Tale of a Tear

It started with the first words of a song at the memorial service for a friend's mother last night. The song was Highland Journey Home.
tale of a tear

this tear
released by the words of a song
and its journey across my face to my heart
on the path of love
high on the cheekbone of a child
nurtured in the age of joy
soft on the place of my own mother's kiss
sweet tickle
the corner of memory's smile
time collected and shared and held
more freely now to linger
little longer
on the chin of recognition
soul's loving light



  1. Beautiful. Warms the heart. Thank you.

  2. Your words weave a tapestry of love created from an inner sanctum of holiness. You bring light to our world and it is appreciated :-)eck
