tage sprague: Within A fallen tear

This piece is dedicated to the passing of my mother-in-law in hopes that she has found the peace that she and I did not share.

within a fallen tear


While walking,
a child within a fallen tear I passed


life at that one moment
we know we truely have.
the anxiousness of two innocents
capturing a butterfly unharmed
fell upon us

making the place in which we stood
stange to be a graveyard.
