I had a couple of people ask me about Teardrop, what form it was, what it means from my perspective, and how I even came up with the thought process of this poem. I awoke from a dream the other night. In the dream I saw a huge tear, who's it was I'm not sure. I observed the tear, and inside I saw a new galaxy. It wasn't a tear of sadness. It was of life. I saw myself in it. I was happy and where I want to be. So of course I woke up and wrote. Writing first about the dream which ended up starting with Teardrop. So first it was just about a dream, then the next morning after I was awake and much into the whole day. I just focused more on a teardrop and what it does, and what it means, comparing it to feelings. At first I wrote more of what a tear has meant for me over the years, but then the idea of the birth and life of a tear came to me, and it just kind of flowed. I just visualized the significance of a tear drop..all of the emotion and heart that is put into that tear as it leaves your body only to drip away into evaporation and nothingness..not a trace that it even existed. I used free verse also to give it a pattern. I use this mostly now in my poetry, because I can create almost like a picture with my words something I'm trying to express. Thanks for all the kind words.
