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.

    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 Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
