Amble

By Scott Bailey 2017

In the gambler
There is a yearning
Hidden
To leave behind the rat race
The frenzy and the risk
And just amble

Carousel

Life is a carousel
Bright, distracting,
Going around in circles
Fun
While its lasts

Painted Ladies

The painted ladies
Thousands fly from Africa
To be lunch for birds

Meet the Characters – Jane

Jane

Jane is a rebel. Of sorts. She engages in rebellious activity and she is good at it. If anyone had tracked her exploits they might say she was a genius. Because that was correct no one had ever tracked her.

But the truth was that so far in her life she had been a follower, not a rebel. She had followed her brother into rebellion and lent her genius to his to fight whatever foe he chose next.

She knew nothing else. It had been her life. And she did not realise that her heart was not in it. Not until the right catalyst lights up her passion and her anger. Then her genius is given the chance to really shine.

Yet will she rise to the challenge?
