The morning silence was broken
by the mournful sound
of a mother’s heartbroken sobs
as the tears fell to the black earth mounded in front of her.
Her only child placed in the ground
to return to his Mother Earth
~the shattered dreams; the broken heart.
No courage to pick herself up and move forward.
