Rambling

By Scott Bailey © 2017

The sparrows scatter the pine cones
Down the valley and down
The salmon and jumping the ladders
The bears are shiny and brown

The river digs through the mountain
Too deep to hold any sin
The current rolls over and over
As ruins come tumbling in

Deep in the widening desert
Rumbles mistakes from the past
Mad birds scatter their debris
The light is shattered and cast

The stars shine high in the nighttime
Burning the rocks bare below
Melting resolve of the greatest
Like newly laid snow

Darkness pushes the light
Further and further apart
Stillness covers the chaos
Silence claims every heart

No Turn

By Scott Bailey © 2017

Time is a one way street
There is no going back
A Saturday now is not a Saturday then
Monday morning comes again

Time drips
Dreams trip
Words will see us through

Mankind Limited – The Sky

The sky to the west was as dark as a promise of Armageddon. It was punctuated occasionally by a piercing fork of blue-white lightning.

As piercing as the eyes that watched. Mankind Ltd.

Trench

By Scott Bailey © 2013

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