Poem a day challenge #155 (Demons)

Demons

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Trick or treating
With our son
For the first time
Wishing the other
Were here
As the demons cavort
and dance
Gathering their loot
Doing their worst
Other flesh freezes
Starved of food and hope
Is one man’s fun
Another’s murder?

Poem a day challenge #154 (To the Bone)

To the Bone

By Scott Bailey © 2013

A pounding headache
The fruit of today’s labour
Now going to sleep

Poem a day challenge #153 (Dreaming)

Dreaming

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Tiny starbursts
The peak on tiny waves
Deep green over yellow
Swaying weeds
Dappled stones
Dark fish darting
The scent of rich water
And reeds
Time to watch
Relax
The life I crave
Instead
Work, bills, sleep, stress

Poem a day challenge #152 (Poppies)

Poppies

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Time for the flowers to bloom again
Red
Like blood
That was shed
A century ago
And every day since
One day
They will be white

Poem a day challenge #149 (The King)

The King

By Scott Bailey © 2013

The King who was
And shall be
Stirs restive in his sleep
Sword in hand
Ready
Who will it smite?
Invaders or haters
Will justice by the sword
Ever be served?
