The Long Dark Night

Orange
King of the hues
When autumn starts to fall
Slowly, fear steals over the land
Chilling

Arise

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Water
Drops from the sky
Yearning to reach the sea
It’s path always heading downwards
Tumbling

Humans
Are not water
Humans yearn for the sky
They strive and climb up and up
Struggling

Sliding
Down from the heights
Steps faltering and weak
Bringing us down into the deep
Failing

Thinking
Measure the path
Assaying obstacles
Planning with forethought and wisdom
Reason

Rising
Against the rain
Climbing the steep ascent
Aiming for the sky, for the stars!
Soaring

Passion

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Passion
Wanes while years pass
Becomes something finer
Matured, refined, rich with wisdom
Mellowed
Do not be fooled by its calmness
Maturity and depth
Do not weaken
Passion

Soaring

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Soaring
High in the sky
In synchronicity
Gathering, readying to leave
Flocking

A Cinquain this week, I am sure I have used this theme and certainly this image before, but it suits
