Tears of Joy

Tears of Joy

A Poem by Schizophrenic Poet
"

As a snowflake hits your eye and melts among the resulting tears you may call on us and we will be there to share in your joy if you take it right for we righteously give the snowflakes to you in love

"

Do not then kiss my ashes or the box they are in

Or place your finger in them for I'm not an ash

That Tree was God but now it is a tree's ashes

And that tree is no longer a tree for God will be

As he has always been, the only real Tree

And that metaphorical Tree is literally God

But a child will put his finger in ash from my tree

It will put its finger to its lips and lick

Like a wolf licking the fur of its its deceased mate

But unlike the wolf it will not die alone

In its spirit but live to have experienced

What is left of the old age and know the new age

When one of you calls on us we will be there

Like a snowflake in your eye when you call on God

not what I usually read....but I found it powerful and I found the references made real to events in my world and my own life......I don't know how much I understand the meanings but I know I like them and will save this to read again and again because I believe I will see deeper into the power of this each time I read it........really nice work....captured me for sure.
