Treasure Island

Heather Burns


Suddenly A Memory


His encounter with
life so brief

As the sun warmed
the waters he
was gone

A mist evaporating
into the air

As if a leaf caught
in the wind
carried him away

Before my eyes he
vanished

Suddenly a memory
of yesterday.

In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
