Treasure Island

Heather Burns

Watching Fireworks

The crowds are gathering
along the Ohio river bank
tonight, to watch the
famous Rossis' fireworks

One side Ohio the other
side Kentucky. Here I sit
wondering where are you
wishing you were here with
me missing you.

The night sky is ablaze
with beautiful fusions.I
saw your face in a star
burst flashing across
the northern sky

I reached to touch you
I wanted to chase it
but in an instant all
was gone.The color
display so wonderful
I sat in amazement

I searched the mid-night
skies looking for you
trying to draw you near
Somehow you had escaped

As the evening was ending
I once again drew you unto
myself.In loving thoughts
I say good-night honey

I love you, rest well.

    A beautiful poem. Searching a lover's face in the sky, star and ardently missing him, drawing him into oneself in loving thoughts are nice, love evoking thoughts.
    I love you, rest well.
    Was a passionate wish. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
