Drifting Islands

By Scott Bailey © 2017

Where is the local
The friendly greengrocer
Baker, butcher
The watering hole
The fire we gathered around?

Now we are islands
Floating in a digital sea
Waving to each other
Smiling, winking, liking
While we drift apart

Green Shoots

By Scott Bailey © 2017

In the red embers
The wake of the forest fire
Fresh green shoots arise

Cringe

By Scott Bailey © 2017

We all have those moments
That we cringe to recall
Should we try to wipe them?
Or are they signposts to us all?
