Will men understand the mysterious language of those tears? Pope Pius XII October 17, 1954
Basilica Santuario Madonna Delle Lacrime
In the architecture of a tear
Took a photo
Ignorant of its meaning
When asked to fill a space with poetry
I want to know the meaning of those tears
Does she weep for His suffering?
Or for the plight of a humanity
Trying to return to God?
NaPoWriMo Day 4 prompt. I took my own photo of the Basilica Santuario Madonna Delle Lacrime in October 2019, not knowing that it was home of the weeping Madonna.
