I wonder from all the seasons, which one is me? How do nature's elements define my identity? When clouds reflect judgement, it does not matter what they think, I do not reflect what they see. I've seen petals blossom through concrete, felt the turbulent tears of Everest's crumbling peaks and I know I'm no master of destiny, but I believe in fate. As butterflies depart in the season of diversity, I see green crumble from crimson to brown - still they dance in the wind. As the earth beneath me hardens within the secret garden of my mind, weeds die, like frozen spirits. I allow erratic winds to whistle, as my soul sleeps silently, unaware of the snowstorm cold does not define me. April showers soften sleeping meadows, the fireball in the sky, hints upon his return. I ponder how nature's palette will paint her poetry upon this season's empty canvas we all fall, but we keep the faith for re-growth. The soul rejoices upon sight of the Gemini moon, blooming through the constellation of twins, adrift in tranquil warm air, under serene blue skies. Surrounded by an abundance of kaleidoscopic petals, their delicate fragrance, becomes my poetry, an expression of character and personality I ponder, maybe this is me.

"we all fall, but we keep the faith for regrowth..." Says it all...Self doubts, self discovery - a continual journey in and out of the mystery that each person is - I love your thoughts expressed here, Silent One! Lovely and profound poetry. Warm regards, Aqua M.

Well done Jan, for Anne-Lise is beautiful, inside and out. I would rather be an old woman than an old crow.

I came home today to a dragonfly on my door handle. A symbol of change and life and beauty. Your words are so artful and poetic and paint such a kaleidoscope of serendipity a walk through hardness and softness interwoven. Well done SO

Within the secret garden of our minds, our poem flourish and evolve - Zodiac signs are not always indicative of who we are - how can a world of people be grouped into 12 parts, sections, characters or whatever - they can however indicate certain of our traits, which we choose to accept - do we ever really know ourselves completely? I'd like to think we do! Awesome poem and deep thoughts penned SO. Hugs, Jennifer.

Yes, you are Spring, Z, because you have lived through the Fall and the cold dark season of Winter but now you've been reborn once again with the exhilarating colors and poetry of Spring in your warm heart and soul. It's called: living and learning through each season of life. Beautiful usual. FAVED. :D

This is very well-written and thought-provoking, S.O. Self-knowledge is not the simple task some seem to believe it is. Janice
