In a break from the usual things I post here a renga, a collaborative linked poem comprised of Haikū, entitled "Wish ~ A Duet".dani harris and I started writing it a little while ago and we think that we have taken it to the point where we now feel it can be published.We are presenting it simultaneously on her pages and here.
Wish ~ A Duet - 19 Feb 11
dani: what would you have me do for you if any wish i could grant to you? ♥
Ainsley: One touch, your gentle hand rested for a moment on my heart, with love ♥
dani: one touch, from the hand of a loving heart ….. the touch of your beloved ♥
Ainsley: A smile and a kiss just to brush your fingertips as they touch my heart ♥
dani: shivers down my spine from the light touch of your lips on my fingertips..... ♥
Ainsley: Fingertips follow your wandering shivers...down... explore soft wonders ♥
dani: a soft moan escapes my lips... my hand on your heart feels it beat faster ♥
Ainsley: My lips kiss your moan taste it tenderly...kissing before it flies off ♥
dani: my lips meeting yours... one kiss just the beginning of passion's release ♥
Ainsley: Looking deep within eye speaks unto eye...calling come with me tonight ♥
dani: soul speaks unto soul... coming together with joy... no longer alone ♥
Ainsley: Lightly touching me your hand strokes my heart again granting ecstasy ♥
dani: two souls... two hearts... joined in ecstasy... ...in desire... each for the other ♥
Ainsley: Passion smouldering constantly glowing...waiting your words fan the spark ♥
dani: your words the spark ...fires of my desire ignited... passion burns brighter ♥
Ainsley: Heart enflamed - burn bright body burns with your love's touch hold me in your arms... ♥
dani: already holding you in my heart ...now holding you close in my arms ♥
Ainsley: Our lips are touching wordless speech from our bodies talk to each other ♥
dani: touch... taste... sight... sound... scent... all of our senses heightened by flames of desire ♥
Ainsley: Senses beyond five allow me visions of you ...I can see your Soul ♥
dani: the shells ...the bodies... matter not ~ 'tis the souls whose journeys continue ♥
Ainsley: To Infinity exploring our passions we fly...together ♥

The phrase "Pandora's Toys" had been drifting through my mind for about seven hours before it was brought into realisation, though I cannot see where my inspiration actually came from, I offer it to you now.
Pandora's Toys - 09 Feb 11
Pandora's toys Kept in a jar By her bed Taken out From time to time To satisfy Her curiosity
Winter white Dancing flakes Frozen ponds Streams of ice
Spring green Leaves flutter Streams flow Birds sing
Summer gold Corn dances Water warm Sun plays on the sea
Autumn bronze Time slows Dreams form Watched in fire
Pandora plays with her toys Lets them flow Around her...through her Gives them form Watches them dance Before she places them Gently back For another time
Sometimes poems form without any reason, other than Muse giving me a gentle prod to let them be born.

This poem grew as I was walking to the cliffs; partially inspired by something said to me before I left my house, partially by the image I photographed and partially though listening to the sea.
I ~ Call ~ You ~ To ~ Me - 07 Feb 11
Come Listen to my whispered Tales Of distant lands Come Listen to the songs I Sing Of men and ships Who brave my depths Come Listen to my secrets And I shall listen to You Whisper to me As you stand On my shore And Call me to your life
The title is a Gogyohka which I embedded into the photograph. I think this concept works quite well - what say you?
