Crumpled Tears


Flowers shed crumpled tears;
petals surrender to autumn time
Wispy breaths of winds too near,
creates a stir amid silent sighs.

Hope is withered against the gale;
mournful cries from broken stems.
Blooms are strewn across the dell,
beauty is gone as life slowly ends.

Winter comes and then it goes;
song of spring soon prevails,
Who remembers after the snows,
a forest caught the tears that fell.

I always have a reason for what I set to page. At least I think I do. More often than not though, I just end up confusing myself with my mindless ramble.
