Sea of Tears

Sea of Tears

This sea of tears
before you, here
bereft of hues
I cry for you

Stealing sorrow
that your morrow
be free of fear
I cry these tears

Now set your sights
on joyful nights
horizons far
and distant stars

Let your hopes fly
as your tears die
and leave them here
I’ll cry your tears

This poem meets two prompts, Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge #29: Tears and the The Daily Post/Daily Prompt, which is Hope.
Jane asks us to write a poem using the Odilon Redon painting Tears as inspiration. She adds to the challenge by suggesting the use of five words – tears, horizon, fly, hue and stealing.
