Namesake

Well how about that – found an established poet with the same name as me. Could be awkward if I ever do publish my poetry.

Maybe I should contact him?

Poem a day challenge #69 (Through the Glass) (Villanelle)

Through the Glass (Villanelle)

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Slowly the shadows pass
As memories retreat and fade
Passing beyond the glass 

Like springtime budding grass
New joys together are made
Slowly the shadows pass 

This pain we will surpass
And sunbeams will cascade
Passing beyond the glass 

Though sometimes the shattered glass
Will cut us like a blade
Slowly the shadows pass 

New light will surely trespass
On the lawn that we have made
Passing beyond the glass 

Those memories we can’t bypass
But their colour has finally greyed
Slowly the shadows pass
Passing beyond the glass
