If the sea lost her salt,
still she would sweep
remorselessly upon the sands,
but instead,
the earth would weep,
for all the lost passion
kissed upon the land.

Fiery tears lend more power
in a single instant,
than all the wasted hours
of silent fears
receding in the distance.

Never lose your salt.
