Best Poem of John Scully

A New Emptiness

I found yesterday
today,
through unlit corridors,
and saw catastrophies
tomorrow,
standing, waiting, still.

Read the full of A New Emptiness

The Playing Fields

Out of muddied pasts
and ninety years on
no guns, no blame
only prayers and dog-eared verses
and for what?
Crosses, sepulchered in pain
grown weary over time,
pray silent in the still air.
And crimson fields

[Hata Bildir]
