built from sorrows tears
stone angles weep ever more
were once love did bide

Ramesh, so sorry I haven't been to your site. First it was the very hot summer that keep me off line as we do not have central air. Then I spent a week in hospital. I will be stopping by today. So happy that you liked my work.

"built from sorrow's tears"...wow, great line. Sad and haunting "where once love did bide..."

Much thanks SBS. I am glad you liked my poem. I somehow always think of graveyards angels when I think of monuments.

I love stone angels, there's a mystique about them that I cannot explain. Yet you have captured the essence so well in your Haiku.

Cassiopeia Rises said...
