Will men understand the mysterious language of those tears? Pope Pius XII October 17, 1954
Basilica Santuario Madonna Delle Lacrime
housed in the architecture of a tear
I took a photo there
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.
