Th’ Day o’ th’ Deluge

Th’ sun unsheathed, sifts thro’ th’ clouds.

Th’ prism mist unveils

an alphabet o’ light as th’

cool sweet air prevails.

Th’ trees begin tae spread thair wings.

Th’ ships unfurl thair sails.

Th’ drying eyes peeked anxiously

An’ hawpt th’ rainfall fails.

The drizz takes rise frae aff th’ groon,

while preying mantis swears

tha’ he’ll consume th’ dragonfly

wi’ whom th’ bog he shares.

Th’ storekeeper opens up his shop,

Th’ barber checks his blade,

Th’ bobcat finds a hiding place

once mair inside th’ glade.

The seagull overlooks the fray,

the mastiff guards the bay,

and when the footsteps of the moon

are heard, he starts to bay.

Th’ seagull overlooks th’ town,

the mastiff guards th’ gate,

and whin th’ footsteps o’ th’ moon

are heard, he starts tae wail.

Evening brings a caul wet breeze,

Not a winged oan takes flight.

in th’ deep mirk dome o’ winter’s night

the stars drap doon thair silen’ light.

About jedwardnajera

I am an artist and a Poet. I live the life of a poet. I published several novels. Nena the Fairy and the Iron Rose, Dust of the Moon are among them, available through Amazon Books. I have spent over thirty five years in a classroom. I am now retired from that profession. My father kept a living record of his lifetime as he lived through the Twentieth Century. He was born in 1908 and almost lived long enough to see us enter the new millennium. He entrusted to me nearly 400 pages that he wrote through the years. Now I am continuing the tradition by posting my own stories and misadventures. I am trying to post a new entry or chapter each Friday. Check in on us at least once a week for the latest post.
