Shattered

The glistening dewdrops hang limply
on crisp white grass
Morning light filters through majestic oak trees
And then it starts.
The cool silence of a peaceful morning
Broken.
Keening, wailing
The sound of a grief maddened mother
Heartbroken.
A parent should never have to bury
A child.

It has so much depth, and it's just beautiful! It's also sad, too. It's beautiful, that is all I can say. You have a talent. And you are a wonderful person and writer, I hope you know that! Thank you for sharing this!
