This poem was written just after "Midnight" was completed and the writing of this was accompanied by listening to music. One of the pieces was "Amoureuse" by Kiki Dee and the line "...rainfall on other planets..." spoke to me again and I was transported ~ again.
Worlds - 18 Sep 12
Sunsets on worlds That are reflected in the Starlight Of our dreams
We have watched As the fires of the days Fade into beautiful embers Into the dark of blissful night
Stars in constellations Lost against the shine Of a galaxy That lights the night
During most of the evening [of 17 Sep] the word "Midnight" had been wandering around in my mind but I could not find anything with which to associate it. At about 02:00, however, this poem started to grow, almost fully formed and with a couple of really minor alterations is what you see here.
Midnight - 18 Sep 12
Midnight A whispered prayer Gossamer thoughts Fragrant ideas born Of things in shadowed memories
Shadowed memories of Midnight Ideas held suspended In places Where light seldom goes
Light plays In fevered memories Midnight Times when old thoughts Seldom play
Play the games From when we were young And dreamt that Midnight Was somewhere we could go
Somewhere in our thoughts A secret place We always held hands And held the thoughts of Midnight
I rather like the way that the word "Midnight" wanders through the poem and that the first line of each stanza contains an echo of the last line of the preceding one.
Muse seems to be setting a new pattern for the times I am prompted to write, just as well I do not mind. This new poem was started at just after 05:00 and finished fairly soon after I woke later in the morning.
Words - 16 Sep 12
Her tongue wrapped around Her words Warmed them Moistened them Let them fly
My ears gathered them Let them flow Listened to their song Asked me to sing along *** My Heart took some words Shaped them Gently took them Wrapped them in Love Offered them
Her lips kissed them Held them in a way To show those words Were ours
"Morning" that's my story and I am sticking to it ☺
