Glistening silver
A delicate spider web
Fallen tree around

Fallout

Taut relationship
Strained over a bloody mess
Chemical fallout

Boxy

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Worn out, knackered, done
A brimful of boxy fun
In old Legoland

Memory Lane

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Sound, sound, drumbeat hard
Too loud, who cares, light flashing.
Thumping beat, hot air, alcohol haze.
Saturday nights of days gone by

Sonnet for our Times

By Scott Bailey © 2013

So it seems to me that beyond the news
Beyond the web of the media spin
There are places still where the only views
Are battlegrounds full of unearthly din

I see the most pious places burning
Where the holy words still hold high accord
Where simple souls for peace are still yearning
The peace that those holy words won’t afford

Yet here where reason and science abound
We live comfy lives secure in our ways
No bombs rain down on our manicured ground
There is no revolt, no passion ablaze

There’s something wrong with this picture I see
Is it really this way, can you tell me?

Winter

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Winter’s wind blows fierce
through silk and wood it does pierce
a lonely howling

Evening Beach

Splashing on the beach
Throwing pebbles in the surf
With red sun sinking
