Fragile

By Scott Bailey © 2013

So many connections
So many lines
All taut and humming
Junctions and switches
A house of cards
Delicately balanced
Systems
Working to full capacity
One break from collapse
Such is life

Copper

Copper
The poor relation
In the metal family
First to be used
Didn’t even get an age
Rich, lustre
That draws you on

Catching up with Blogging

Life has been so busy! I am so behind with blogging now! Even missing my own Daily Prompts

Thankfully a few people have been keeping them going so they are at least not going to waste. And it’s prompting a few discussions.

I will try and go back and do the ones I have missed though.

Quote of the weekend – from my youngest – at 5 years old. Jumping into a dodgem at the fair, grabbing the wheel and putting his hand on my hand.

“Don’t worry dad. I’ve got this!”

Merope

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Marriage was forbidden
Mortal husband taken
Masked in a veil of shame
Must watch her husband’s pain
Most faint in the heavens
Marred by following love
Misty those lives above
