Heather Burns


Were You There?


Footsteps walking
in my garden
in the rustling of
the leaves

Soft reflections
loosely woven
something blowing
in the breeze.

Vivid whispers in
the evening
shadows stealing
from the day

Was it my imagination
or your presence on
display?

    Very nice poem, Heather. Is it just wishful thinking? We'll never know, but I like to think these feelings are real. (Report) Reply

    When our mind is lost in the memories of someone dear, we feel that he/ she is standing before us.... something of an optical illusion! A beautiful poem, Heather! Enjoyed its simple beauty! (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
