Slipping Away - Poem by Heather Burns

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

confidence
slipping away


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

gradually
slipping away


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

emotions
slipping away.
