Poem a day challenge #96 (Shadows)

Shadows

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Our voices are simply the shadows
Cast by our dreams and our thought
If the shadows become ineffectual
Then our voices will end up as naught
Yet shadows can give us the outline
Of what is looming above
If we take note of the darkness
We can give those dreams a shove
One thing we must yet remember
To give those shadows a shape
Sunlight is needed behind it
From brightness the dreams will escape.

Poem a day challenge #79 (Dream Bearer)

Dream Bearer

By Scott Bailey © 2013

The bearer of news is coming
The bearer of mystery
Will the news be good
Or scary 

The bearer of news is coming
Anticipation is strong
Slowly our dreams are condensing
So long, so long, so long.

Poem a day challenge #73 (So It Goes)

So It Goes

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Stereotypical headlines
Reactions just the same
Ample opportunity
To apportion blame

Night time is for thinking
Sorting truth from lies
But in the sunshine morn
Dreams just fly

So it goes
