Our economy picks up!
Soul still desolate.

Wherever words roam
Over fantastical lands
The heart rests at home.

Trench

Dancing with my wife,
last week the telegraph came:
Coughs ring round the trench.

Poem a day challenge #75 (Flown)

Flown

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Another one lost
Too short, too precious, and gone
Little heart flown high

Poem a day challenge #74 (The Cracked Vase)

The Cracked Vase

By Scott Bailey © 2013

The vessel is cracked
Still holds the sacred blooms
Still revered
Though the blooms are without root
Rootless. Dying.

Still revered.
Water though refreshed,
Still stagnates
Dead blooms replaced
With freshly cut.

Repetition
Builds a patina of respect
Authority
Habit.

The vessel is cracked
Empty of life
Yet forever filled
and revered.

Poem a day challenge #73 (So It Goes)

So It Goes

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Stereotypical headlines
Reactions just the same
Ample opportunity
To apportion blame

Night time is for thinking
Sorting truth from lies
But in the sunshine morn
Dreams just fly

So it goes

Autumn golden brown
covers the hard icy ground

The Songbird

Bird sings by the pool
in the spring in a soft cool breeze
her voice a sweet sound
