Heather Burns


Willow Weeps


A weeping willow
stands silently
at the waters edge

waiting for a breeze
to cool her passion
in the summer heat

eyes become misty
a gentle rain begins
to fall slides down
her cheek

drips into the water

a breeze catches long
hair tangles it with
thoughts

weaving patterns of
yesterday
yesterday so clear
calming

so many familiar
faces
familiar and alive
images emerge
images of someone
special

Reflections of the
past linger
haunting memories
she looks away in
wonderment.

Poem of the Day

poet Edward Thomas

Like the touch of rain she was
On a man's flesh and hair and eyes
When the joy of walking thus
Has taken him by surprise:

With the love of the storm he burns,
