Slipping Away - Poem by Heather Burns

ships leaving the
destined for
foreign waters
fearful to tread
unknown territory

slipping away

A lovely blossom
in full bloom
heat scorching
the petals
lets go of the stem

slipping away

a true love once
in the passion
of the sun
cools with the
evening breeze

slipping away.
