Shoots

In exultation
Shoots arise, reaching skyward
Until sharp blades sweep

Monarch

The meadow’s monarch
Surveys his green realm with hope
Before the sun sinks

Cold

Winter is coming
Snow sweeps down from the cold north
Followed by the dead

None

By Scott Bailey © 2017

None can understand me
Our inner teen cries
And so the world hurls
And churns
On and on and on

Explorers (A Florette)

By Scott Bailey © 2013

We brave explorers together
Wearing imitation leather
And as silent as a feather
We toiled through the darkest weather onto our prize

Through mountains and valleys, we walked
By tigers and lions were stalked
And as brave as we always talked
There came a time when we just baulked against the size

Of the hunger in our bellies
Off with our explorer wellies
Broke out the ice cream and jellies
And retreated to the telly’s noisy comfort

Radiance

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Radiance
Shining across the galaxy
Shimmering
Around the darkest of places
From darkness
Light is born
To darkness
Returns

Softly Softly

Softly fear creeps – more chilling than any scream.

Thirteen Tales of Ghosts

By Scott Bailey

A collection of short stories concerning ghosts. Some are traditional ghost stories in the tradition of M.R. James and Edgar Allan Poe. Other are not. Some scare, some are fun. Some play with the concept of a ghost. There are ghosts who are out for revenge and the living avenging the spirits that curse them.

Ideal for sitting around a campfire and late at night under the covers. Or maybe not if the stories themselves are any guide.

Check it out on Amazon and Smashwords and other online e-book retailers.

paperback version is now available for those who prefer the feel of the paper while huddling by the fire – on your own – in the dark – with that noise behind you……
