Rain Clouds

Quite a lot of those here recently.

Rain Clouds    -   09 Nov 18

Hanging over the landscape
A tired weather cape
Does not protect from the rain
Clouds bring more
Fields vanish into the drizzle
The rain clouds rule the land

Waiting for dry days to return.

Dreaming The Rain

Another modern Haiku today.

Dreaming The Rain    -    08 Nov 18

I wish I was
Dreaming the rain
Rather than standing in it

Maybe a scarecrow's lament.

A little modern Haiku today.

Eternitys    -   07 Nov 18

Eternitys are
Not long enough for us to
Grow and explore we

Exploring we is good.

Looking at things both old and new.

Places    -   06 Nov 18

Reaching from the fog
Of part recalled places
My mind wanders
From the once familiar
To the unknown
A land of strange images
I dream
Yet I am awake
Can I touch the places again
Or are they lost in the fog

Difficult to tell sometimes.



New directions to seek out places.

Unexpected    -    05 Nov 18

Little twists
In the flow of reality
Shake understanding
Into unexpected patterns
Bringing the view
Of where and when
We are
Into new focus

Seeing the vistas.

Rain On The River

Thoughts on water.

Rain On The River    -    04 Nov 18

Water to water
Sky kissing the river
With drops of rain
Wandering to the sea
Rain on the river
Travelling together

The rain inspired this poem into being.

Touching The Night

Feeling that very special fire.

Touching The Night    -    03 Nov 18

Sweet kisses by firelight
Warm flickering glow
You looked into my eyes
We were touching the night
Stars fired the sky
Guided by our Love
Through the forever
Of the night

The special person is YOU.



The way I feel.

Desire    -    02 Nov 18

Drive desire
To greater heights
Raising expectations
Realms realistically
Achievable to dreamers
Not to
Who never
Dream to higher
Levels of

I felt that creating a pattern with words would be an interesting way to explore a poem.

Interesting how things can shift unexpectedly.

Confuse    -    01 Nov 18

Moments when certainty
Seems to be unchangeable
Something happens
To confuse
Suddenly there is uncertainty
In every location
The unexpected rules

A little change in things around me.

Pressed Memories

Keeping the memories safe.

Pressed Memories    -   31 Oct 18

Pressed between the pages
Of an unread book
Memories dreams wishes
Thoughts of Love from the past
Resting for now
Hoping to bring them back to life
As time passes
The book placed under the pillow
To feed the dreams through
The night before going to sleep
To grow to fruition

Safe and watered with tears.
