Heather Burns


Folded Wings


Folded wings in retreat
in search of a sanctuary

a wounded dove looking
for a peaceful environment

going to the well many
times leaving empty

lonely folded wings sigh
wipes a tear from her eye

forever in flight always
seeking never finding

like a tight rope ever
binding.

    Just like many of us these days, searching every where for peace and contentment, but looking in the wrong place; as, it can only be found in Christ. A beautiful poem, Heather! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
