Treasure Island

Heather Burns


Wilderness of Life


Traveling
through
the
wilderness
of life

Many
thorns
along
the
journey

Leaves
cover
the
pathway

Leaving
behind
a veil
of tears

Tangled
after-
thoughts
of you

Causing
me to
lose
my way.

    A fantastic poem. To lose our way can be devastating,
    But to find ourselves again can be truly magical. (Report) Reply

    This is really great, from it's very fitting title, to the poem that follows.
    Wonderful and very true, for many others, including you....who have
    felt the pain of losing someone. Beautiful write. (Report) Reply

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,
