Heather Burns


Were You There? - Poem by Heather Burns

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
