Trees

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Two trees
Old as memory
Some leaves fallen
A root cut off
Two trees
Explored
Examined
Noted down.
Two trees drawn together
Forever entwined.

A day in the woods
Jumping in piles of brown leaves
Autumn brings us home

Autumn golden brown
covers the hard icy ground
a leafy carpet

Winter

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Nothing, nothing, blank.
Beneath winter’s hard black ice.
Water flows freely.

Poem a Day Challenge #37 (A Lost Forest)

Just got in today! With another new form A Minute Poem – or in this case a last-minute poem.

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
