The Song

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Plainsong
Rolling, chanting
Granting the air a form
Bestow shadow and light purpose
Singing
The crafting of ancient wisdom
To bear us something new
Brightly shining

Blind

By Scott Bailey © 2013

We
are blind
to the truth
Everyday
Suffering goes on
And we deny it all
Unable to find a way
Through the maze of our modern lives
To a place where we can be ourselves
And hold out that hand that helps our neighbour

Instead we clench our hand in a tight fist
Holding tight onto what we have gained
Not seeing what we are losing
What slips away from our grasp
Diminishing our souls
Focused on our goals
With such passion
That we are
simply
Blind

Check the link for the guidelines and rules

Not feeling very well and as it is the poet’s choice of words and the Etheree has been added to the list of forms – thought I would include this double Etheree  I did some time ago.

The Craft

By Scott Bailey 2017

Hands caressing wood
Tracing the grain
Or moulding clay
The release secret shapes
Or shearing marble
Into silken shapes
Or stroking the page
To paint magic words
Or brushing the canvas
Revealing world of dancing light
Nothing
No automation
No factory
No robot
No tool
Will replace the love
In the craft

Butterfly

Sod the camouflage
Be resplendent in the sun
Flutter high and shine
