Heather Burns


Blossoms Of Summer


Vibrant
beautiful
blossoms
of summer

Fade
quickly
one by
one

Gently
dropping
their
petals

Floating
to the
ground

Painting
picture
patterns
of
yest erday

Now just
an image
lying
somewhere
in the
corners
of my mind.

    comparing our thought to the summer blooms is something that can't be imagined in certain parts of the world, where the summer is horrible, but to the people who enjoy very pleasant summer, this poem is very interesting..Nice poem (Report) Reply
