                                        To Cry Or Not To Cry

I cry. Not so much anymore. I suppose I cried enough as a child that I worked it out!? Now, my inner voice tells me how long I may cry. Sometimes it's not long enough to wash out the........ 

Cry baby, hmm.  Babies cry but why are you a baby if you cry often? It takes maturity to realize it's time to cry, and time to move on.

I offer up to you several quotes on the subject of crying. Ruminate please.

Adieu    Till Next Time

"To weep is to make less the depth of grief."
                                               William Shakespeare

"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love."

Washington Irving

"No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader"     Robert Frost

"I cry very easily. It can be a movie, a phone conversation, a sunset-tears are words waiting to be written" Paulo Coelho

 I have been gifted,  I have tasted the sweetness of life..

I have seen the sharp clarity of trees flowers, faces.

I have felt the transcendence of caressing voice and music.

In my hollow heart, the giant beast of loss.

A raging surge of anger in argument, alive, vital.

The bitter sweet bite of emotional blood;

leaving the raw taste of iron.

The heat of life screaming through veins found lazy,

 an unfocused vision lost to the mundane.

Beauty ablaze, the fine edge of pain sharpening all senses.

Grief will not win. I will rise and soar once more;

Banner above, head held high, pain now passion.

Never really gone.
