Metaphor for a Broken Heart

This
dull morning
is too cold
to be beautiful
now that
the snow
has melted
into the sound
of water
trying to return
to the earth
after it was lifted
into the sky
where it
didn’t belong
and where it was
never meant
to stay

Painting by Lawren Harris, 1923 “The Ice House”
