Talking With You


This poem was inspired by an actual dream I had recently.





Talking With You  -  21 May 18

In my dream
You were with me
Conversations
Flowed as we talked
Of times to come
Of things we shared
Talking with you
Is fulfilling







The conversation was intriguing.

Waves


Memories of another reality.





Waves  -  20 May 18

Rising and falling
In rhythm with the tides
Counterpointed
Riding the white horses
Through the waves
Feeling the flow







Realities often overlap.

City Of Glass


A poem with an almost mythical feel.





City Of Glass  -  19 May 18

An ancient world
Cities still shine
Even though
No longer inhabited
The city of glass
Holds testament
To the people
That once built it
Their memory still lingers







I feel that I may have been there at some point.

Midnight Themes


Another music inspired poem.





Midnight Themes  -  18 May 18


Music flows through my mind
Colours flood my thoughts
Blending into a symphony
Of strange ideas
Themes born in midnight hours
As conscious minds
Dream the music






There is also a colour based concept.

Exploring Forgotten Memories


Memories act as hints to go in unexpected directions.





Exploring Forgotten Memories  -  17 May 18


Deep within my mind
Memories linger
Even though they do not surface
Voluntarily
Occasionally I see something
Which triggers the hint
Of memory
Inviting me to start
Exploring the forgotten
Memories of other years






Will you accept the hints?

Distance


Another in the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.





Distance  -  16 May 18


Times and tides
Attempt to lay down
Measures of distance
How far something is
But even
Five thousand miles
Means nothing
To Love






A Love song.

Touch Of Love


A new HaikÅ« on the theme of Love.






Touch Of Love  -  15 May 18


I feel you touching
Gentle caresses always
Love shines through from you






I Love Love songs.

Looking Beneath


Inspired by the process of some serious tidying and clearing.





Looking Beneath  -  14 May 18


Exploring places I should know
Discovering things
Long forgotten
Not even a feint memory
When I am looking beneath
I discover them anew
The memory crawls back






Now that the process has begun I expect to find more old memories.

Discovering


Look at everything with wonder.





Discovering  -  13 May 18


Opening eyes
Ready to look
New places and things
Discovering a new way
To see
Use all your eyes
To really see






Remember to use ALL your eyes.

Ancient Eyes


Watching and dancing.





Ancieny Eyes  -  12 May 18


Through ancient eyes
I have watched
The dance of years

The dancers make me smile
Tears of joy
Often fill my eyes

I
Still join
The dance






Always watching and dancing.
