Two souls within a crowded city, sit and ponder to unfurl
The way of people who rush around, in illusionary worlds.
Dreamers of another age, they sit on bench, in vision engage
Invisible to all who walk on by, their minds within another age.
An age of Knights, and Ravens wings, when crest of honour were true
Finding lodgings now in a world of make, mend, and do.
Wandering hearts and friends for life, whose blankets are the stars
No one stopping to ask how deeply go their scars.
A life of walking through concrete and glass, they escape all that the world enslaves
A Camelot Castle in cardboard built, to shelter in Merlin’s Cave
Their quest to venture and wander, in a land that never sleeps
Did it ever occur, just how many more have wandering feet?
In a world of Progress, as the Earth cries her many showers
In a world of unseeing eyes, in their high raised towers
The two on bench, oblivious to all, look above city blocks
As the Raven Crows and arches, as Beyond this realm they look
Heaven smiles down, never missing a beat
As a Rainbow lake descends right before their seat
No crock of Gold, except for in hearts Raven’s Song
A Standard flying, showing where the Rainbows Warriors Belong.
Musing in a world of both present and past
No longer held prisoner within high walls of glass
Dragons return no longer slain, fly high in their new formed freedom
As two dreamers Dream, creating their own Magical Kingdom

The above poem I wrote is an introduction to GallyBloggers~ Scarecrows One and All.
Some of my blogging friends already know Dewin. He introduced me to this collaboration of Raven’s 12 of which he is part.
GallyBloggers shares poems and thoughts written and shared on this site by the homeless upon the streets of the UK.
A plight so many are finding themselves in more and more on many shores around the globe.
Please be enthralled, enchanted and motivated, by the poetry written upon their blog. As I hope you go and support them .. None of us ever know when we ourselves will face Crisis in our lives .
Homelessness is on the increase, and within our own town I see many who are living on the streets.. So next time you pass by a homeless person, please do not just look the other way.. Each has a story, and there but for the Grace of our circumstances, we could all find ourselves in Crisis and Homeless.
Love and Blessings
