Tears

image

The painting (charcoal drawing actually) is by Odilon Redon, entitled ‘Tears’.

Tears, horizon, fly, hue, stealing. (Words for use in the prompt, along with the picture)

setting sun on the horizon
brings with it a hue that can
only be described as magical
as a flock of birds fly across
this kaleidoscope sky their
silhouettes chasing the sun
a family homeward bound
stirs this sense of longing
that creeps upon me silently
stealing my joy bringing me to this
unexplained place of tears

….I know, I said the same thing on my reread at the end…
I’ll tell you mine if you tell me yours:)
