Heather burns

(tanka syllable count 5-7-5-7-7-) A Brief Time

Even though the time

we spent together was brief

each moment remains

yesterdays treasures to hold

your memory will not fade.

    A short and sweet write Heather. Time well spent is

    The moments are as brief as your felled rose petal at the gate.
    The treasures are harbored in a vault of love
    That one day are dreams of fate
    Though the time was never a second best
    Hold tightly onto to your love
    Like the time it treasured blest. (Report) Reply

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
