Sunset

The sun setting large
A swollen ball of fire
Birds settle to roost

A Spring of Dreams – Lantern

Lantern

Old light from the past
Is still illumination
Wisdom echoes far

The Gap

By Scott Bailey © 2014

Two esteemed academics
In high-definition
In a stately home
Discussing Disraeli

Meanwhile
In another land
Another world
A young girl awakes
In the slum
Steels herself
For another long day of work
Man after man after man

And in between the two?

Engage

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Life is engaging
Creatures decipher the truth
They peruse it all

Blue Star

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Blue star beam
Slides by a smoky moon
Dances through Saturn’s rings
A lone abyssal tune
Lingers by the Jovian storms
Then on to lunar dust
Down through cool and silent sky
Drawn down and down like lust
Brief it touches silken skin
Pauses for a spell
Then down into the darkness
Of the iris that does swell.
