The clouds
Pregnant and grey
Seem very angry today

But instead of ranting with thunder
They cry

A long hushed session
Of just tears
And no words

Drop by drop by drop
A million bottled angers
Fall down
Sky to earth

And the tears,  cold
With spent fury
Now find solace
In one another

They rest
And echo in unison
Welcoming one more
Then another
In puddles
So wide and so full
They earth can’t suck them
All at once

They make me sad
These  tears

And I hope tomorrow
When I  wake
The earth would have wiped
These many laments
