Behind a veil of tears

Past images haunt the present,
cluttering the landscape
with memories,
true or false;
some rooted deep
while others bloom
from some imagined unreality;
still others bearing down the track,
inevitable, looming
while we stand waiting
to be carried into some vacation spot
where palm trees sway like hope
behind a veil of tears
and coconuts fall and split before us:
food and drink
to fill the aching heart.
