I had just finished writing a review of a draft poem a lovely friend intended to post and included in what I had said I wrote the line "Rain flows in my mind". I realised then that I had to do something with it and gradually the remaining words flowed into my mind. After a few more prompts from Muse the poem was completed today.
Rain Flows - 24 Aug 11
Soft drumming on the roof
Trickle from an open tap
Within the cloud
Rain flows in my mind
Each drip translated
I see the colours
Of the sound
In syncopated symphonies
Dance in light
Across the rivers
In my mind
Seeing the song
Hearing the light
Feeling the dance
Of the rivers
Rain flows in my mind
I offer this to you, make of it what you will - Muse doesn't always explain the meanings of the poems or prose that she inspires - but comments are, as usual, always welcomed.
This is an offering to http://dversepoets.com/2011/08/23/openlinknight-week-6/
After a rather long gap Muse again requested that I start to write again. She dropped some interesting ideas into my thoughts including one for a photographic version of "The Message", I hope to present that before too long. "The Message" is constructed as a Gogyohka - five lines - set in the middle of a group of four-line stanzas and was originally birthed as a stand-alone Gogyohka but Muse and I knew that there was more to come...
Ocean Song - 04 Aug 11 Including The Message
To the water’s edge Down across the sand My footsteps Wove the rhythm
Watched the waves Wash the stones Half-buried Weed entangled
Heard the words Whispered by the water Carried From your lips
Afternoon sky Rainbow reflected On the shards Of crystal
I wrote the words Upon the sand And waited For the tide To take my message to you
Ripples lick The fragment words Absorb them into Her heart
I heard my words Reflected back from her To me… I love you
It turned out that this was to form another part of the Ocean Love Songs series of poems, Haiga and Gogyohka that have been growing over the last few months.

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