Stacked high and waiting
All ready to be consumed
And give out their warmth

Poem a day challenge #217 (Fury and Wonder)

Fury and Wonder

By Scott Bailey © 2014

We need fury and wonder
to fire our song
But the fire is dim
the spark long gone
So sift through the ashes
for an ember that glows
To tend and to blow
through the wind and the snows
And build from the ashes
a new song, a new light
That burns with new fury
to banish the night

Forest Fire

By Scott Bailey © 2016

Wood cracks with a flash
Sparks dance in the air, falling
Down to cooling ash

Autumn

Autumn

By Scott Bailey © 2014

Autumn is the fire
That leaves us dark and cold
Watching all our dreams
Burn in red and gold
Closing up our houses
Sealing up each door
Skeletons branch out
As death bedecks the floor
So hideaway the grain
Shut up all the stores
Be frugal with your food
As the autumn fire roars
For soon will come the snow
And the biting winter frost
And the long dark nights of cold
Where hope and warmth are lost
So quicken please the fire
That leaves us in the cold
Hurry please the spring
That starts this wheel so old
This was as a part of a collaboration project which you can find here
