A Wind Swept Day - Poem by Heather Burns

As I pen my thoughts and dreams
words I cannot say

I bear my heart to the wind
on a wind swept day

May I take a dream or two
my dreams involving you

Blow them to the wind
make my dreams come true

I bear my heart to the wind
on a balmy day

May it catch on fire
and blow your love my way.

    The wind is just a reminder
    of the grains of sand left undisturbed
    Our words are just faltering
    As we try to grasp
    At the unpreturbed (Report) Reply

    A beautiful poem, with a great flow. It makes me think of dream
    catchers gently swaying in the wind. (Report) Reply
