Pillows

Cloudy
Dusky pillows
Huddle in the valley
Like a giant’s bed covers
Misty

The Long Dark Night

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

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

Entrapment

By Scott Bailey © 2018

The things that we hoard
Entrance us and enslave us
A lifetime of toil
To sit on an empty throne
Why not take the easy road

Enchanted Forest

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Forest
Verdant, alive
Roots reaching out and down
Branches stretching up to the sky
Spellbound
