Ten Thousand Tongues

“There is sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love.”

~~ Washington Irving

John - I like the image you have created. WIth the quote, it represents a truth that cannot be fully understood unless having had such tears of pain. Thad

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . .

A very nice artistic piece, John. The faded look and soft colors are very appealing. Nice bit of verse, as well.
