Winds

By Scott Bailey © 2014

Dusty grey pigeon
Battered by the wind
Ruffled feathers, frantic wings
To stay true to course
A struggle

A tall ship sitting silent
In the harbour on
Still calm seas
Regal, proud and ancient
Going nowhere now

A queen strutting her stuff
Colours on parade
While those who earned the medals
Into memory
Slowly fade
