Every new day

…our childrens’ joy is as fresh as roses,

Even the birds chatter at dawn.

 

Tomorrow will be sharp and noisy,

Like the bright spotted splash of wild flowers

That freckle the shaded tawny look of ancient meadows.

 

How stubborn life is,

It clings like silver in our souls.

    Scott, you are a kindred spirit….
    You write about the things I feel.
    I’ve enjoyed reading your poetry, very much!
    Keep dreaming….keep writing….keep communicating.

    The seasonal pictures match the poetic messages of each stanza and reflect universal messages that are both temporal and philosophical.

      Incredible! That was a very good read. Someone who really thinks, feels and understands what they are writing about. Quite difficult to find of late, especially on the web .

    Scott, your web site is incredibly appealing. It reminds me of the embrace I felt when I visited the Cotswolds, and I look forward to browsing your blog.

    ‘How stubborn life is, it clings like silver in our souls’ Lovely!

  10. Scott, some lovely phrasing here. I especially like “tomorrow will be sharp and noisy”, at times it is, but I only hope for less of an edge. Very nice work.

    Scott, I really like the line “it clings like silver in our souls.” I do wonder if life is as stubborn as we are, however, to keep the silver in our souls? Just a thought.

    I enjoy your site and your poems. They are very much of light, roses, bird songs, children–“silver in our souls.”

    All best,

    Bonnie
