Tearful eyes

Tearful eyes

When there is sadness in your heart

don’t try to contain it

keeping it hidden

from the world and from yourself

Instead let it rise into your throat

and precipitate from your eyes

and your tears will rain

on the inner landscapes of your spirit

filling its rivers and its lakes

and watering its meadows and its forests

thus ending the drought

and the next season you shall bear in your heart

the most beautiful and tasteful fruits

you have ever yielded
