No o’s

In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, Twenty Five

The blackbird perches
High in the silver elm tree
The wind tests the trunk

Planet of the Savages

In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, No Thanks

Visitors from the stars
Passing by
Would be appalled
And leave well alone
Abandon us 
As the hopeless savages we are

Candles

By Scott Bailey © 2013

One lumen
The light of a candle
It can be seen they say
For many miles
Candles burn tonight
One for each lost angel
Light that will been seen over many years
Still bright in our minds
A million candles
A fiery sun of bittersweet memories
The burning potential
Of lives that never were
