Back from the shore
Into my arms.
After an explore
In a world of charms

A world full of wonder
Mystery and fun
Of beaches and crabs
And space to run

Breathing salty air
Hearing laughter ring
Dancing without a care
Of what tomorrow may bring

So dance some more my son
Enjoy the sun and sea
When the day is done
Run back home to me

Poem a day challenge #79 (Dream Bearer)

Dream Bearer

By Scott Bailey © 2013

The bearer of news is coming
The bearer of mystery
Will the news be good
Or scary

The bearer of news is coming
Anticipation is strong
Slowly our dreams are condensing
So long, so long, so long.

Sir Richard Francis Burton
For who life was so certain
He was a master of disguise
Caught Mecca by surprise

Poem a day challenge #77 (Modern Times)

Modern Times

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Primary colours or simple fruit
Clickety click click and point.
Open the way to a blind deluge
Illuminate the mind

Bright blinding highway – superfast.
On a never-ending roll
Swallow it all until we drown
Where is the straw of truth?

Poem a day challenge #76 (Green Board)

Green Board

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Turn upon turn upon turn upon turn
Green upon green upon green upon green
Tracks and tracks and shining silver
Decision making machine

Can it take the pressures
Of expectations on board
Will I
