NaPoWriMo: Day 10 – Freely Let Them Fall


Johnny Jump-ups in my garden

Freely Let Them Fall

Our tears are the

water of life,


the debris left from

suffering and grief,


the soil of our sensitivity,


appreciation and forgiveness.


The inspiration for this poem was the following passage:

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” ~~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

  1. Lovely poem and your inspiration from ~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross is dead on, if only more people knew that were true, what a different world it would be, zouxzoux.
