And In My Dreams

Sitting in the dark of early morning and listening to rain and hail beating against my window, Muse started to suggest a few words to start me off on a new journey.  The few words offered were the title phrase.

And In My Dreams  -  30 Dec 12


A tender voice
Told me of her Love
For me
Eternity together


Waves sang a soft song
Telling tales
Of days gone by and
Days to come


Rose held in both our hands
Whisper soft
Red petals hold our desires
Carry our thoughts
Eternity in a moment
We share


Once again I thank my Muse for assisting me.

Haikū 44

More from the hand-written Haikū archives.  All of these Haikū originate from 19 May 10 except for the last one which comes from 20 May 10.


Your intense beauty
Flowing from your Soul ... cannot
Help myself ... I stare


While thinking of you
I remember what we did
and my Heart beats fast


Changed his position
To appear more attractive
Ecch - what a poser


Wandering around
Feeling lost, very alone
You are not with me


In darkness I sit
Low cloud releases the rain
Day faded to black

More to come...

Six Senses

A poem which grew suddenly and rapidly in my mind, it insisted that I write it out immediately and publish it.

Six Senses  -  16 Dec 12

Tasting your kiss
Drawing us close
To experience

Your warm perfume
Exciting ~ wanting to please

I reach out
Touch silken skin
Soft smooth inviting

Hearing your heartbeat
As I rest my head
Against your breast

Seeing the Love
Shine in your eyes
I am lost within

Souls moved us close
So we can be
Together ~ forever

I thank Muse for inspiring me and I thank a different Muse too.

Frosted Night [re-written]

The poem first posted here three days ago has been re-written after it was pointed out to me that it could be split into two related poems.
So now I offer the new version, presented as a Tanka and an Haikū envoi.
Hoping you like the new offering.

Frosted Night [re-written]  -  08 & 11 Dec 12

Moon ~ her beauty shines
Encrusted ~ a thousand stars
Frosted night Dragons
Sky diamonds shine brightly
Amid enchanted dreaming

Crystal shards ~ glitter
On fields of velvet darkness
Reflecting the glow

Thanks are due to dani harris for her suggestion ~ I always consider any suggestions carefully...especially if they are polite. [smiling as I type]

Frosted Night

Another of the late night or rather, early morning, creations when Muse kept insisting that I made a note of the lines that were forming in my mind.  Glad she did because I nearly forgot that I had even created the note.

Frosted Night  -  08 Dec 12

Frosted night
Sky diamonds shine
Crystal shards
On fields of darkness
Reflect the glow

Not so strange that poems should grow in darkness.

Hers first then mine...

times ... will you love me then?

I already love...
your words would be in the way
of kisses I give

Ally  -  05 May 10

Through troubled times
I will get through easily
You are my ally

Haikū 35

After a long gap I present another selection from my hand-written archives of Haikū.
All these originate from 03 May 10


Strong wind from the sea
Carry thoughts, distant places
To blow through my mind


And in the darkness
Dreams gather in the corners
Waiting to catch you


Talking to myself
... again, only I listen
Lonely sometimes though


Dream walking, again
I am awake while asleep
Not unusual


Standing in sunshine
Feeling the warmth flow through me
Reminds me of you

There will be more soon.
