Teardrop Child--By Susan Kahil--Spain

Teardrop Child

Each raindrop fell and grew a child
Into a man who then rained tears
The sun drew a smile upon that child
Man blackened out the window of his heart
The wind whispered ‘love’ into the child’s ear
Man blew it back out stale breath spelling hate
Rainbows painted child with happiness
‘Hu(e)man’ discriminated
Earth sucked him back into her belly
Whilst the child giggled within

Susan Kahil singer/songwriter/poet is originally from the UK but has lived in Southern Spain for the past twelve years.  In a secluded mountain valley on her olive, orange and avocado farm surrounded by nature and wildlife is where she gets her inspiration for poetry and original songs. Some of her recent work can be seen in the soon to be poets’ anthology, “Dandelion in a Vase” and several publications in magazines.  She is currently working on her first poetry book.  Susan likes to look for the beauty and infinite potential in all things.
