May Tears

Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts.
Charles Dickens, English author (1812-1870) in Great Expectations

The garden's new growth stretched out its green limbs to capture heaven's nourishing tears. The plant's obvious elation is echoed in the background chorals of robins and sparrows.
