the circle of timeless regret








Shrouded in a blanket of silence and mist,
touched by the ice in the air,
my vision is clouded by a light I can’t see,
my hearing is doused by a prayer.
And I follow the brightness towards the masked warmth
of raindrops that hover, then fall,
shattering the circle of timeless regret,
while heeding the waves as they call.

  1. Beautiful poem and tender thoughtful words but do not linger in regret for it is a waste of time for it is living in the moment that is the only time we really have. We are learning as we live - and asking for guidance is a powerful prayer of humility and acceptance -- the first step to recovery,, of which humanity needs to practice to help clean up the environment right now. Have a nice week end. Joan

  8. I do not believe we live in regret as much as happy to have "lived"!

    However--"...shattering the circle of timeless regret, while heeding the waves as they call."

    That line, as if I am "brought back to the real world BY the real world.
    Just LOVE your wintry thoughts, Shadow.

    Before three months have passed, winter will have passed, place taken by glorious SPRING!

    Peace to you, Always and Forever.

  35. I feel the weight on my own heart reading your words...you have a way of opening me to some places within I don't always want to visit...I thank you for reminding me of the multitude of emotions/experiences that are still accessible deep within...it is important to allow them all a bit of light now and a gain.
