As I lay awake between periods of deep sleep, listening through my open window to the rain singing on the porch roof, words started to form in my mind. Half this poem grew at that time and the rest came as I read what had already been formed, this afternoon. This is the first acrostic poem to emerge for quite a long time.
She Touched Me - 11 Oct 12
Songs she sang
Have stayed with me forever
Time carried my thoughts
Over space through worlds and
Underworlds where galaxies shone
Creating diamond vistas
Eternal promise in our
Messages passed from Heart to Heart
Once again Muse asked me to make a note of my words before they are forgotten, she was right and reading them today allowed completion.
The title line "Dreams of Eden" had been wandering through my mind for the whole of the day yesterday, suddenly it all seemed to come together with a series of songs that are often in my mind. All but the last stanza was completed before I went to bed and part of the final stanza appeared when I was in bed, Muse reminded me to make a note of what came at that time.
When you finish reading the poem I would suggest following the links to YouTube to listen to my references.
Dreams of Eden - 01 Oct 12
The dreams of Eden
Still echo through my mind
And slumber with the thoughts
I still harbour
Of our times together
In restless dreams
Through places that others
But only in my Eden

Our Souls still wander
Through the gardens
And taste the flowers
Worlds dance on their way
Round the suns like
But always we have
