Heather Burns


Blowing In The Wind


Standing with arms
outstretched toward
heaven

leaves catch the sun
casting reflections

silver images dance
on their surface

branches hover together
creating an umbrella
of protection

listening to secrets
borrowed from the wind

whisper in my ear
share with me the magic
blowing in the wind.
