Treasure Island

Heather Burns


Sometimes Waiting


Sometimes in the morning
dewdrops melt away

giving up their moisture
for another day

sometimes in the evening
Mr. Moon comes shining through

creating elusive visions
For each of us to view.














sometimes sometimes sometimes sometimes sometimes sometime sometimes

    a very focused write with a rhyming structure...Ms. Burns, your poems are always brief, lucid and witty! ! ! an interesting thing about the gender of the moon is that in our native and national language urdu Moon is male as you addressed as Mr. personifying it so creatively, and sometimes it is addressed as goddess moon...it is frequently used and variously interpreted phenomenon in poetry from the world of nature!
    beautiful poem! ! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
