HARD WATER

Hard Water
a poem by Peggy Lam


Rain beats down on dirty sidewalks of
this conglomerate city;
echoes of voices from inner chambers hide
the soaking shower.
Too bad after the rain the dirt remains;
residues of sin clings to the hearts of men.
Schemers drown out the calls of nature
with their boisterous bragging
to divide and conquer the weather.
Sorrow fills my heart when I hear the soft
entreaties of liquid drops on hard cement,
the hearts of men hardened.

Seagulls' footprints in the sand?
Love the ripples too.

Parfois, les larmes sont les gouttes qui adoucissent nos cœurs endurcis.
