Sitting on a wet afternoon, events in my life conspired with Muse to encourage me to write a new piece. I am quite pleased with it and Muse told me not to wait and think about the poem, just post it now...so here it is.
Rainy Memories - 30 Oct 10
Watching rain Dribble down my window Listening to the wind Whisper sad songs At the window Old memories Knocking at my door
I let them in To converse Remind me of where I was And when... And what the feelings were When I was there
Watching the stream flow Taking the memories back To the places In which they live
Gazing out through the rain Watching new memories Gather under the trees Waiting for me to join them To play Walk with the Sun Sing to the Moon Dance with Life Share the Love ...I will be there With you
Whispering my thoughts and feelings to the Universe...listening for the answers.
Listening to lovely music, Muse tapped me and said you can do that too...I didn't have time to set up a document on computer, I just grabbed pen and pad and started to write. Sometimes the old-fashioned methods are best.
Whispering Waves - 28 Oct 10
On the banks Of the river On the shores Of the sea We have been together Hand in hand Heart in heart Souls holding...caressing
Never known before How deep We can be Together
The tide Forever carries Holding the echoes Of all our words Ever spoken As the waves break They whisper I love you
I stand And watch And listen The waves talk Share secrets With the shore Listen They talk of us
Whisper... I love you
This poem flowed even more smoothly than usual and I am pleased with it. Comments?
Another poem birthed in the early hours, this seems a good time for Muse to visit me - when I am most receptive to her gentle persuasions.
Epitaph - 27 Oct 10
Her voice Quicksilver sliding Through my mind She touched me Deep within Removed my pain But left me with a new one I knew her I knew I couldn't have her The mists of time Had already claimed her To dance in otherwhere
A sad poem that doesn't actually refer to anyone I know personally; it was triggered by listening to lovely music sung by a beautiful woman who is no longer incarnate.
Another of the very early morning birthings while I was writing some other works to appear on Twitter.
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow - 06 Oct 10
Mingled with the echoes Of yesterday And the dreams of today I sit and watch The dawn Shine On the worlds of tomorrow Bring me New dreams Where you stand With me on the shores Of a new ocean I reach for you ...Take my hand?

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