A tear from the eye of God
falling helplessly from the sky
His overwhelming sadness
begs the question ‘why?’

Branches of the maple tree
reach up to break my descent
held aloft for just a moment
does it know I am Heaven sent?

With tender care the branches all
pass me gently down the tree
and thus upon the last branch I find
I must now jump to be free

In trepidation I leave the branch
to fall into the unknown
but find myself fallen atop
a seed somehow unsown

Joined together, God’s tear and seed
we unite in nurture’s plan
forming roots of love and care
‘tis how this world began.

This is truly beautiful.

Well, I'll have whatever YOU are having...inspired metaphors here. This is two in a row that I have read, I like the slow drawing out of images you are incorporating into your work...it's a quiet piece that left me with the sensation of gentle falling. OH...and hey...Nice place ya have here PdV!
