Why The Sky Didn't Fall

When your forehead fell
to solvent hands, hair hanging
like wild grass
over a fence rail

I knew
your anger had passed
and the humbler man, a moved artist
had entered -- hours

after leaning against
that massive door. Its timber
stained with moss
and a gaunt shadow
of prayer.
Painting is called, "Waiting For Sky" by artist, Fabio Perez.
