Switch it Off

By Scott Bailey © 2018

For a restart button
A ctrl-alt-del
For some days
Some situations
For life
Must be the geek in me
I want to switch it all off
And back on again

Thin Fences

By Scott Bailey © 2014

Two men wake
Two men go to work
Kiss their children goodbye
Earn their wages
Come home
Love their children
Make love to their wives
One man sends the other
A bomb in a package
Nothing between these men
But a thin fence
And hate
Dressed up as ideology
As fight against injustice
As religion
As revenge
But it is nothing
But the empty
Of little men

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo


Silent ghosts wander
Half forgotten memories
Cloistered past present
Glimpsed in the shadows
Flickers of recognition
Dance in the dust motes
Old stone holds magic
Childhood imagination
Remembers wonder


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at Kirkstall Abbey in Yorkshire, so close to where I spent most of my childhood that I feel as if I know every stone. There are so many legends associated with this place…like the gruesome story of the Lovers Knot, to the legend of the buried treasure… so many memories and ghost stories, that I could not begin to share them all. But clicking the links will take you to a few 😉


Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week. There were so many contributions that I could not reblog all of them, however, all the posts are listed below, so please click…
