This poem started to grow when I was collecting our drinking water from the shute above the stream near our house and the images started to fill my senses.
Today - 30 Dec 09
Above me Fragmented shards Of fractured blue Show between the clouds
Beside me The stream tries To carry the shards, The splinters, Of the blue Glittering dust
Ahead of me Water cascades To quench my thirst
Behind me The path leads Home
I use the word 'shute' in the opening lines instead of the more widely used 'chute' because Cornish dialect often pronounces the word as 'shout' and the spelling beginning with the letter 's' allows this as a possibility.
This poem was inspired - in part - by my friend June, she has taken to writing duets through her comments here and, because of this, I felt it good - as the poem was being birthed - that June should get a mention here.
Flight Through Infinity - 13 Dec 09
In the flow We swim together Dance together Sing our duet to charm The watchers Angel and Dolphin Creating the dream Together
In the wind Between the stars We fly together Our dance together Illumined by starlight Angel and Dolphin Dreaming the dance Together
In the void Where stars are born We pause Our dance creates the worlds From which all things begin And infinity Shall be our playground Angel and Dolphin Dancing the dream Together
In the infinite Where thought is born We need not move Breathing the dream Into existence and letting it Flow, around, between, Within Angel and Dolphin Dreaming the dream Together
I feel this poem marks a new point in my writing - not certain where it is going to lead me but I am open to developments.
This came through as I was reviewing thoughts and memories about some people I know or knew and I realised that we all have these feelings, though for most of us, these feelings are way below the surface and will never be seen by others.
You may notice that it is in the form of an acrostic...
Somebody Has... - 10 Dec 09
Bringing her strange thoughts Into my line of sight Provoking a response Out of nothing I thought I had Laughing, she probes And requests attention again Reaching out to torment and Drag me into strange places In which she hopes to lose me Slipping the knot round and Over and against my neck Restraining and releasing and then she Denies it all and at the End of the day she says it Really doesn't matter
There are no names here for the simple reason that the 'she' in the poem is a construct and should not be taken to represent any one particular person.
This poem took shape during the afternoon and was complete in about an hour.
Watching You - 09 Dec 09
Watching you Asleep My eyes follow your form Settle on your closed eyes And the warmth of your smile Are you dreaming of me? I wish...I wish... I wish I could join you In your dreamscape To play Among the roses Along the glittering shore In the shifting waves In our Dolphin selves
