In the Highland Heather Grows

In a vast field wild heather grows
peacefully resting dreams reborn
roots dug deep healing water flows
in a vast field wild heather grows
your song and light forever glows
tears of sorrow hearts gently mourn
in a vast field wild heather grows
peacefully resting dreams reborn

sharing with Poets United
wishing you peace in your new journey
my dreaming friend..you are not gone
just transformed.

  4. Heather is something that at least in Sweden has been associated with death.. and your triolet sings a song of real beauty.

  16. Friends may leave us but there is always part of them talking to and laughing with us. We are not whole unless we have others still on our minds.
