Haiku Shuukan #20, Tears

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Another week has gone by, it was a wonderful week, but also a very busy week, but ... well being busy is part of my life. I never will spill a tear about it and that brings me to our new prompt of this week, tears. As you maybe know we are reading "Sand and Foam" by Khalil Gibran at our daily haiku meme at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and this week I love to share also a 'verse' by Khalil Gibran on 'tears'.

[...] "There must be something strangely sacred in salt. It is in our tears and in the sea". [...]

A nice and very spiritual 'verse' I think and it is here also for your inspiration and mine. I have written the following haiku on 'tears', a year ago:

with tears in my eyes
I see how the wind is ruining
fragile beauty

fragile beauty
a gust of wind tears apart
Cherry Blossoms
