Audrey is a poet, classical singer and voice teacher, recovering attorney and licensed psychotherapist.

She helped herself to tears

fallen

upon the cheeks of minions,

each one

a story unfolding,

each with its unique flavor

a pungency untasted before

as she pulls them onto her fingertips

and watches the sun's light illuminate

the worlds within.

      A whole story packed into a few lines...I can see this being a fairy tale about a tear collector...the poem itself is beautiful visually!

      This poem is not only beautiful but it amazes. So much thought is stirred with so few words. I hesitate to pick a favorite poem you've written but if I had to, this would be it!

      Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

      Pandora is one of my favorite characters from mythology. We can recognize her in so many situations. You caught her spirit beautifully.

      You've done it again. I visualized my own creative 'plants' growing within my own mind as I read through this masterpiece. It's as if your words penetrated my being, opening locked doors of 'tucked away' feelings, free, at last. Amazing!
