Heather Burns


A Private Affair


When we sit to write
with pen in hand
a private affair begins
between muse and myself


Its a poetic journey
as we enter another element
a renewal of spirit, soul
searching, looking for answers


'not allowed' sign is posted,
the door shut, locked, the key
hidden, so we cannot be
disturbed, as we venture inward.
