As shades of grey overwhelm white clouds,
their rain tears begin to pitter and patter,
creating a pattern upon my skin.
Like a dehydrated petal, I taste their 
tenderness with the tip of my tongue.
A gypsy breeze kisses my skin's shivers,
as I gaze at my muddy decaying garden -
roses look rusty, but their thorns remain.

As my eyes close in silent stillness,
I'm lost in a melancholic moment -
when I was like a vibrant spring bloom

but I wonder why my roots crumbled.

Life moves so fast,
but some of us struggle to grow.
Some images remain forgotten,
some promises remain broken,
so, I ponder what happened,
to those childhood dreams and schemes -
when the mind cared not for meaning,
only hidden treasures we would find.

How many are still searching,
how many souls are at peace?

How empty is your jar?

Reflecting upon those who arrived,
hardly any stayed - few left an impression -
most left without understanding.
Some still live within boxes of my heart,
especially those who lifted me when I fell,
but there was only a few

and I regret the ones I hurt,
forgive the ones who caused me pain,
but, I shall never forget.

We can never escape our past,
some of us will never really heal,
memories are like lost photos,
stored in a dusty album.

I awaken from my reverie,
as conkers fall at my feet, cracking their spiky shells.
A ray of light breaks from a canopy of leaves,
reflecting upon my face - I begin to a smile.

I can't recall when my bubble floated away,
but, I embrace the rain and what it brings.
I accept what the winds take with them,
because I can feel the warmth of the sun.

Become the gardener of your own life.

Another poem searching depth, SO. Your thoughts dwell in introspection--the dialogue of emotions resonates. Answers to some questions are elusive. Meaningful write.

Great read my friend. As we grow older, we begin to look back. It is natural. I have many regrets -- people whom I hope have survived my selfishness. My self-centered desires, that focused on my needs first, and not the love shared, a love were meant to propagate for the good of humanity (not self) and its creator. Sadly, no one can change their past. All we can do, and it is important, is to be less critical and more forgiving of others. We know nothing.

How often we do that S. O. Usually when its peaceful and no distractions, we seem to go deep within ourselves reflecting on both the good and bad things we've encountered in our lives. I didnt know a word existed to discribe it. Tom.

Your range of perception is vast as it moves from one view to another. Personally I always managed to forgive and forget. Prayer helps a lot. ~~

A fabulous write Silent One, I find as I’ve grown older I’m more aware of the beauty of earth’s surroundings and like you become overwhelmed by fascinating facets I see. ~ Belle

Is it a gift or an infliction to become absorbed in what to most people would be inconsequential details? I consider it a gift to be attuned to wonder about little things...the sadness of a butterfly emerging with a broken wing, or the pruned branch that was never allowed to live. Maybe it's an affliction to be concerned about such things, but I wouldn't mind being called one who has ambedo moments. Another personal glimpse...

WoW! Silent, First of all, I want to thank you for introducing me the word Ambedo. I must say captured the essence of the word in this well written write. I won’t be able to look at clouds and raindrops the same. Powerful and profound last line. Excellent job my friend-Alexis
