Time After Time

This is the third and final part of the Time sequence of poems, I feel that it has been brought to a satisfying conclusion ~ with some assistance from Muse.

Time After Time  -  15 Jan 12

We traced the time-lines
From each beginning
All beginnings
Through everywhen
Watched the games
We played – play out
Felt again the dance
Through the Universe

In this place
Time after time
We can rest
No more do we need
The dance or the games
But because we enjoy them
We shall
Play on

Home now
Wrapped in each other’s arms
We sit and watch
The stars

Where will the next saga take us?  Muse only leaves subtle hints but I am certain that, wherever we go, it will be fun.

Step By Step

This is the second of three poems in a Time sequence, the first one was "Time Before Time".  I was given the titles of this and the next poem just after I wrote the first one and have been waiting for something to grow around the title.  Muse prompted me in the early hours [again] and I now present it here.

Step By Step  -  12 Jan 12

In our thoughts and dreams
Through all our lives
Our paths meandered
Crossed and re-crossed
Only one thing we knew
Was certain through all of them
Our Love’s constancy

From our beginnings
We moved
Step by step
Through the starstream
Drank from the waters
Of Infinity
And kissed our Love

Still our dancing thoughts
Take us on
To worlds undreamed
Under skies of wonder

The third poem in the sequence should be arriving soon, with a few hints from Muse.

Time Before Time

Another poem to arrive during the night when everyone else is sleeping.  I had been watching a DVD when certain words and phrases started to sound in my thoughts - when I finished watching the words were still there so...

Time Before Time  -  08 Jan 12

In the time before time
You held the beauty
You were powerful
Your beauty held me
I was your willing captive
Now, here and now
You still hold me
Your touch still goes deep
Deep within me
I am still your willing captive
Your kisses bind me
Hold me
Keep me

I offer my kisses
To try to hold you
You say that there is no need
You say that you are mine
Have been, before time was time
Always have been
Always will be

I am really happy with the way that my Muse feeds things to play with in my mind.

This poem crawled into my mind during the afternoon - normally they arrive during the night - I never argue though and am pleased to present it here.

Dancing  -  04 Jan 12

Dancing in the dark
To a soft song
Listening to the rain
Washing the window
Drops catch the lamplight
Dance down the pane

Pressed against each other
Enveloped by the music
Enveloped by our Love
Sharing sweet kisses
As we move
Through the night

Caressed by dawn’s soft light
We dance on
Song still plays in our Hearts
We still play in our Hearts
The words can be heard
Through our Eternities

I was surprised by this poem's arrival but am really pleased with the result ~ thank you Muse.

Birthed in the very early hours of the first day of the year, when Muse says "you should write" I cannot argue.  A quote, seen in quite a few places, helped to bring this poem out.

"...when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you." From "Beyond Good and Evil" by Friedrich Nietzsche.

 Abyss  -  01 Jan 12

Standing on the edge
I look down
The abyss
Looks back
With unblinking eyes

Sweet smell
Sage smoke
Wafts through my mind
A corner of my eye

Reminds me
Where I am
My toes grab the edge
I am
Where I must be


Happy to be posting things here to Muse on the first day of the New Year.
