Another of the older poems, I was reading through some with the intention of posting something and was struck by the images and memories that this poem triggered in me - I hope that the same can be said by you when you read it.
Memories - 08 May 97
I remember Soft warm breezes Slow sunsets Into the sea
Memories of those Loving days Watching the waves Washing silver across the sands
I remember Special mornings Gentle golden light Washing through the windows
Pulling me from sleep Taking me from my bed Inviting me to walk Through the gardens of a dream
I remember Places I have never been Imagination takes my waking mind To other worlds, other lands
In my dreams I have touched these places And drunk the waters Eaten the bread. Lived there.
I remember Walking Walking the wild places Dreaming of a time
When through a window Across the sea I watched slow sunsets Into the sea
I feel that this is one of my more evocative poems.
Another of those poems that grow from something seen and heard while doing something totally unrelated.
October Rain - 03 Oct 09
Autumn, October rain Washing the leaves From the branches Casting mottled shadows From the reflection Of the streetlamp On the road. In the night-dark time A rumbling wind Almost drowns out the patter Of the rain on my window
The weather cannot make up it's mind what it wants to do...just after this was written the sky cleared and a [just past] full moon shone out.

A quote I found...
"It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else."
I must be braver than I thought.
