I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

These poems are works in progress and may be updated without notice. Nevertheless copyright applies to all writings here and all photos (which are either my own or used with permission). Thank you for your comments. I read and appreciate them all, and reply here to specific points that seem to need it — or as I have the leisure.

Tears

April PAD Challenge 14. Today's prompt is actually inspired by a song by Feist. The song is called "How My Heart Behaves," and the prompt for today is to write a poem with the title "How (fill in the blank) behaves"— with the poem inspired by whatever you put in that blank.

How Tears Behave

They misbehave:
unpredictable, defying control,
running all over the place,
disobedient children.
You only want
to stop them from falling.
