A Lost Forest

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Bright flakes of light in dappled leaves
that float on down
where saplings grow
and settle low

And earthy scents rise in the air
As underfoot
leaves crunch and fold
red-brown and gold

The rusty fence that holds it in
it holds us too
back from that time
when we roamed free

Enroll

By Scott Bailey © 2018

When
Did I enroll
For
This
To be
An oxen
For the
Faceless farmer
Yoke fitted
Ploughing on
And on

In response to the daily prompt Faceless

Tsuma (A Katauta)

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Silky dress caress
Swishing – lighting my desire
For your loving touch
