Today

Poem By Marilyn Shepperson

The sun sinks slowly in the west
This day is nearly over
It's time for this part of the planet
Is almost done
Yet for you, another dawn will bring
A day to do with, what you will
But for now, pause and think
Reflect on this day's passing
You may be glad to see the back of it
Or be grateful for what it has bought
Still just remember this, my friend
Life really is very short
And you will never see this day again

You said this just at the right time for me. Ringing bells, not all of them alarm bells, as a good piece is able. t x

Killing Fields

The fighting is over, the battle is won
Overhead the crows are gathering
The dead lay like a grisly carpet
Those not dead groan or cry and pray softly

Late Evening In The Village

As night falls, the bats do flit
From the old belfry tower
A barn owl silently ghosts
Across the flowery meadow

The Dragon

Dark green above and gold beneath
He was a wonderous sight
But points and wings and tail barb
Were as black as deepest night

The White Farmhouse

I had left the city lights behind
Travelling far into the country
A route I'd never taken before
Parked the car and got out to walk

Two Inquisitive People

Two inquisitive people came to my house
Invesigated the dining room and the lounge
Tipped the cushions on the floor and emptied the bins
Before going into the bathroom to discover towels

Contemplating Suicide

As I wander down the lonely road of life
I wonder why all I've ever had
Is a truck load of strife
