The Present Storm

By Scott Bailey © 2018

The boat rolled
Pitched and yawed
In the roar of the storm
Rage without form
Pain without end
No captain to tend
The tiller
The sailor clung
To his sanity
Like life

Procession – Wordless-Wednesday

The wistful mist
Rolls on its way
The winding trail
Along the twisting
Shallow vale
Rolling down
From dew green hills
Pausing by
Abandoned mills
Sinking slowly
To the sea
Morning green
Making bursting
Life serene
Until it rises
Into the air
Joining with
The clouds somewhere
Becoming one
Losing shape
From narrow trail
It does escape
Now no more
Gone away
Now no more
Gone away

A word is a ripple

Spreading through the world

With slow, subtle effects.

Imagine then what a few more, well placed, can do.

Find out.

A Spring of Dreams
