Glistening silver
A delicate spider web
Fallen tree around

Strained over a bloody mess

Poem a day challenge #91 (Memory Lane)

Memory Lane

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Sound, sound, drumbeat hard
Too loud, who cares, light flashing.
Thumping beat, hot air, alcohol haze.
Saturday nights of days gone by

Poem a day challenge #90 (Sonnet for our Times)

Sonnet for our Times

By Scott Bailey © 2013

So it seems to me that beyond the news
Beyond the web of the media spin
There are places still where the only views
Are battlegrounds full of unearthly din

I see the most pious places burning
Where the holy words still hold high accord
Where simple souls for peace are still yearning
The peace that those holy words won’t afford

Yet here where reason and science abound
We live comfy lives secure in our ways
No bombs rain down on our manicured ground
There is no revolt, no passion ablaze

There’s something wrong with this picture I see
Is it really this way, can you tell me?

Poem a day challenge #89 (Winter)

Been busy with DIY today and now my back is aching bad. So this is one I prepared previously – but new on here.

Winter

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Winter’s wind blows fierce
through silk and wood it does pierce
a lonely howling
