Passage Of Time - Poem by Heather Burns

Grass remains lush
forest green
if properly watered
and fed
without fades turns
brown

petals drop from
a flower
slips softly to the
ground

breezes catch a leaf
whirling around
casting it away

Tree limbs dry up
breaks off, falls
away

He stopped to weep
teared in
harmony with the
passage of time.

    Petals falling, leaves on the ground, tree limbs drying up all showing passage of time. Feelings resonating. Beautifully presented. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    I booked passage with the ship of time
    But I was late, she set sail at nine
    Sadly I went home and threw my bags on bed
    I felt like I was dead
    But then a knock upon my door
    what fool is this I was to implore
    The good ship Time has run aground now
    All hands were lost, ripped off the bow
    And I thought was it providence that to this I owe.
    No you just missed the boat is all I want you to know. (Report) Reply

    Time is a great healer.
    But I would rather choose before having to be healed.
    Sweet poem. Although with a touch of despair
    I like it.
