A change in the mood again, delving into the fairly recent past for this offering.
Rain - 11 Nov 00
Once upon a midnight strange I listened to the rain. I listened to the rain Cascading down my window Talking to the trees Singing in the stream Duets in the watery symphony On the rocky way to the sea.
In the unexpected darkness After the fullness of the moon I contemplate the changes And listen to the rain
Change to the mood? I will probably get back to the hopeless romantic state before too long, I rather miss it.
Someone searched my blog recently, for "Dolphin, acrostic poem" and this inspired me to actually add one to these offerings.
Dolphin - 14 Sep 09
Dancing with my Muse to unlock and Open the gates of dreams and throw them wide Leave the constraining land behind and Pass into the world where imagination Has the guiding hand, now swim with me In a wonderful, beautiful place and you need Never leave my side again
I hope this pleases the one who searched my Muse and any one else who reads it.
I always find it interesting when Muse takes me by the hand and leads me to find paper and pen so that I can transcribe the latest poem, this is what happened last night.
Wondering... - 13 Sep 09
Wondering... How many times I never told you... In all the time We were together I never said... I should have spoken Only those few words That mean so much But I never did Though now I must I love you
I have heard the phrase before - hopeless romantic. Once again - I make no apologies.
Another acrostic today, this one just grew by itself from a card picked for inspiration.
Synchronicity - 10 Sep 09
Sharing thoughts You once believed were yours alone Now realising that they are shared, Communally, with your Heart-linked friends Realising that there is more. Other-world links New-found friends In infinite worlds Cosmic links Intricately Touching minds and sharing Your love
Poossibly not an accurate description of synchronicity but it felt right when writing the poem and I felt that the thought was more important than content.
This is a new poem - it is not the one I was waiting for but 'fate' has a way of changing things when you least expect it. I am not complaining though, fate has assisted me too many times for complaints.
Touching My Heart - 06 Sep 09
Touching my heart Playing with my dreams Playing with the kisses We shared
Holding my mind Caressing the memories Loving in the depths Of our thoughts
Take me by the hand Lead me back to the place Where our love was born And there let it grow anew
Another love song - I am getting a reputation as a romantic...one of the best reputations I can have, I believe.
Another poem from my dim and distant past; this one has a theme not quite in accordance with the time of year in which it was written.
Summer Passing - 26 Jul 76
Time pass. The summer days slip In orchestrated simple melodies Cascading floral emblematic themes Symphonic echoes of a distant place. Now southward fly the geese. In arrow formation, melancholy cry, Away from the louring grey, fly Mourning has come again, enshrouding snow.
I cannot believe that I have been writing poetry for over thirty years - makes me feel really ancient.
In amongst all the poems telling of the beauty and friendship of the Dawn comes this offering from the fairly early years giving a completely different image.
Entrapment - 10 Dec 85
And in the lamplights darkness I watch The starlight fade. Dawn comes mocking at my door In misty veil Enfolded. Pretending she is someone else To trap me With her guile. But I will not be fooled I know her real face The coldness and the pain She gives Are real
I think she has forgiven me, this was written during a rather rough period in my life when I actually dreded the new day appearing. My life is way different now and I know that the feelings I wrote about were just a reflection of what I was going through.
Dawn is, and always has been, my beautiful friend.

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