Shoots

In exultation
Shoots arise, reaching skyward
Until sharp blades sweep

Monarch

The meadow’s monarch
Surveys his green realm with hope
Before the sun sinks

Explorers (A Florette)

By Scott Bailey © 2013

We brave explorers together
Wearing imitation leather
And as silent as a feather
We toiled through the darkest weather onto our prize

Through mountains and valleys, we walked
By tigers and lions were stalked
And as brave as we always talked
There came a time when we just baulked against the size

Of the hunger in our bellies
Off with our explorer wellies
Broke out the ice cream and jellies
And retreated to the telly’s noisy comfort

Radiance

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Radiance
Shining across the galaxy
Shimmering
Around the darkest of places
From darkness
Light is born
To darkness
Returns
