Silenced By The Gunshot

Poem By Tamsin Douglas

Silenced by the gunshot
misty waters shudder cold.
And rippling fields to attention,
bloody as a vampire flock.
Silenced by the war wound.
A young doe and her spindly fawn,
framed by conifer clearing
in a painting far too dear to sell.
Silenced by surrender.
See the flower slowly creep toward
the boundary line.
The forest edge.
Opposing land a soil of bloodshed.
Fertilize opposing crops.

The Sun

The splendid summer sun-a token of enchant.
Emerging with zeal each sunrise I grant.
And burning so fiercely, yet lenient and clam.
To keep the world glowing it heals with it's balm.

A Rather Unfortunate Incident (By A Ghost Named Fred)

Oh! The Jolly Roger
Grinning down at me that disastrous day.
The day they made me walk he plank.
The day I died because I sank.
