Heather Burns


The Tree Of Life


Sitting under the tree
of life
hovering over as a
large canopy

Protecting from the
heat of the day
collecting my thoughts

Anticipating the future
cooling my emotions

A future so unclear
about to be discovered
but yet not known.

    A future so unclear
    about to be discovered
    but yet not known.....nice one...10

    future is future
    unpredictable and unsure
    but seize and extend grip
    that is how we firmly hold and keep (Report) Reply

    Future never comes as future, as soon as it comes it becomes present. I think we should continue with dreaming a better future cause we have no alternate. (Report) Reply
