The sun setting large
A swollen ball of fire
Birds settle to roost

Getting what you wished

So wish well my son

Poem a day challenge #322 (The Gap)

The Gap

By Scott Bailey © 2014

 

Two esteemed academics
In high-definition
In a stately home
Discussing Disraeli

Meanwhile
In another land
Another world
A young girl awakes
In the slum
Steels herself
For another long day of work
Man after man after man

And in between the two?

Poem a day challenge #319 (Swans)

Swans

By Scott Bailey © 2014

 

Black swan gliding
Over serene waters
But still
The reflection looks disturbed

White swan slipping
Over icy lake
Frozen
To the heart

A play in the park
Really knocks the wind from you
In these mature days
