Predawn Song [Haikū]

I was intending to write a somewhat longer poem but the first three lines flowed and inspiration stopped.  After a short while I returned to what I had written and noticed that the lines had formed a familiar pattern.

Predawn Song [Haikū]  -  31 Dec 13

Silence of predawn
Broken by a Spirit song
Welcoming the sun

A little poem to close the year.

Goodbye 2013 ~ Hello 2014

Wind Dance

The wind was calling during the night and this is my answer.

Wind Dance  -  30 Dec 13

Round and around
Wind dance
Playing with our senses
Hear the whispers
In the night
Taste the Moonlight
In her hair
See the tree wave
Welcoming the dance
Smell the rain’s
Tender shower
Touch the memory
Of the wind
In her dance

I think she would approve.

I was wondering what to write when I was suddenly aware of the rain beating against my window.  In that moment the poem arrived almost fully-formed in my mind.

Watercolour  -  29 Dec 13

Brush slips over the paper
Wet line of colour
Forms shapes
Fills out the detail
Image of the one I Love
Now held forever
For me

Rain falls
Outlines her shape
In the air
Three-dimensional watercolour
Painted in my Heart
For me to keep

I Love these offerings from Muse.

Loud Silence

Listening to the whispers in the silence of the night.

Loud Silence  -  28 Dec 13

Her smile calls me
Lips whisper Love
I listen and answer
My words form a duet
With hers
Together we say
The things we both want
To hear
In the silence
We know
No words need be said

I knew the Love songs would not take too long to return.

Walkers In Night

This is a message of thanks to the invisible guardians who are always present.

Walker In Night  -  26 Dec 13

Beneath the shadow of night
Watchers walk
Guardians of our peace
In Love they gather us
Hold us forever

I had it in mind to write another Love song but this poem twisted in my grasp and formed into what you see here.  Well ... Muse knows what I should be writing.

She Held Me

Back to the Love songs again ~ I so Love writing them.

She Held Me  -  26 Dec 13

She held me
I could hear
Her Heart beat
It was a Love song
As she took me
In her arms
Looked into my eyes
Kissed me
With her eyes
With her lips
I am hers

My favourite form of poetry.

Silent Shiver

A new poem started to form in my mind, I did not expect an alliterative piece to be the result.

Silent Shiver  -  25 Dec 13

Silent dark
Starless in the cloud-filled night
Sketching colourless phantoms in
Silverpoint detail
Sleeping spirits have
Spiral dreams to keep them company
Scant moments to prepare
Stirring wakefulness as you
Shiver while asleep
See the tired dream
Slide into the mind
Succubus awaits

I did not expect the the content either, especially given the day ~ Joyeux Noel everybody.

Your Heart

Another little Love song which just flowed without any expectation from me.

Your Heart  -  24 Dec 13

In the folds of my pocket
A fragment
Of your Heart
You gave me to keep

I cherished it
Held it close
Kept it safe
And through it
Sent my Love to you

A slightly different feel to this one.

Jade Robe

I cannot say, with certainty, where the inspiration for this poem comes other than catching a glimpse of Moonlight through clouds just after midnight.

Jade Robe  -  23 Dec 13

Moon watches
Her fingertips washed
In the waters of my Soul’s dreams
Velvet jade robe
Swirls gently as she moves
Silver light from her hands
Fills me
Fills my Soul
Shine sweetly

Sometimes it is just best to allow Moon to be the inspiration.

A Deep And Dark December

I was thinking about what I was going to write and another Love song slipped gently into my mind.

A Deep And Dark December  -  22 Dec 13

A winter’s stale
Tired embers of a
Worn out fire
Within the hearth
We can light
A new fire
Just for us
To warm our days
To light our ways
And keep our Love warm

Title line “borrowed” from Simon and Garfunkel’s song “I Am A Rock”

Time And Times

This poem grew from the idea of trying to get away from Love songs for just a little while.  Muse, however, had other ideas.

Time And Times  -  21 Dec 13

There was a time
When we were young
And the Universe
Was but a child
We played then
Little joy-filled games
That filled our time

Universe has matured
As have we
Our games have changed
In ways we never imagined
New dreams fill our minds

Dreams no longer
New real ~ now real
All we have is

I do not argue with Muse, she knows best.

Things Whispered

Another Love song from a slightly different perspective.

Things Whispered  -  20 Dec 13

Things you whispered
Soft words of Love
Stroked my ears
Your fingers ruffled my hair
In night’s quiet moments
Your whisper
Paints the stars
Shows me all I need to know
Tells me of your Love
Brings happiness

I do Love, Love songs.

I now offer a slightly different Love song.

Kisses  -  18 Dec 13

From a darkened sky
A thin Moon watches
As kisses draw a line
Between the stars

Constellations no longer
Denote the myth of the past
Now they show our future
Kisses pull us on

Let us follow the path
We are being shown
Share kisses and us
Into our Infinity

Love is the same - just the words are different.

A little Love song to illustrate Togetherness.

Together  -  17 Dec 13

In the night
We are always together
Kisses tie us
Connect us
Blend us together
In the special ways
That has brought us together
Has made it possible for us
To be completely together

Something special.~ just ... something special.

This poem grew in the very early hours, as they so often do, and was completed before I went to bed.

Journeys  -  14 Dec 13

Endless journey
Through your Heart
Wonders to wonders
Always wrapped
In your Love

You took me by my hand
To lead me to you
Embraced me
Laid soft kisses on me
Showed me your magic

Opened my eyes
To see you
Allowed me
To be with you

Just another little Love song.

Lost 2

This poem formed just a few minutes after I built the post for "Lost" and seemed to be a follow-on from the first poem.

Lost 2  -  12 Dec 13

Travelling between worlds
Your thoughts touch me
Taste me
Open my mind
To your wonders

I have been lost
In one world of sad dream
Now in your world
You hold me
Lost no more

I don't think that there are any more of these to come but ... who knows?

This poem grew during the day rather than during the night as is more usual for my writings.

Lost  -  11 Dec 13

Lost in the space
Between one word
And the next
Between each breath
When you share
The breaths
Between Heartbeats
When you share the way
That each beat
Plays Love’s dance

The phrase "Lost In Space" kept wandering through my mind but I knew that I could not use it because of the old TV series and movie.

I have no idea where the inspiration for this poem came from.  It just seemed to happen but I rather like it.

Remember  -  11 Dec 13

Phantom winds blow
Through our aged memories
Stir the dust rake the leaves
Whisper in our ears

Changing winds blow
Through memories yet to form
Shift them into patterns
We will remember somewhen
Look for them

Gentle winds in the now
Shaping our thoughts
Forming our world
We are the memories
Of forever

Expect the unexpected ~ so I have been told.

She Lives Within

A little Love song which formed quite quickly but needed an overnight simmer to allow it to come together properly into the form you see here.

She Lives Within  -  10 Dec 13

Breath ~ a warm summer breeze
Sweet with a fragrance
Eyes ~ fire smouldering
From a Heart filled with Love
Touch ~ cool winter fingertips
Wander down my spine
Living ~ in my Heart her spirit
Takes me beyond what I have known
She is in me around me with me

I think this works ♥

Hard Rain

A poem with a rather different feel though it still fits into the "limite surréaliste" framework.

Hard Rain  -  09 Dec 13

Hard rain shatters the night
Wakes the sleeping dreams
Drags the mind into a new form
Opens the way into the formless dark

Sleeping through it the rain drops into
The dream from an empty night
Giving shape to unnamed dream
Waiting in the shadows

Wondering when I shall eventually drop the "limite" from "limite surréaliste" and how things will change because of it.

I was trying to get some ideas together for this offering when I saw a photograph on Twitter and immediately it all came together so today the poem is ...

Reflections  -  08 Dec 13

Autumn mists
Gentle wrap
Soft blanket
Lake still
No ripples
Mirror calm
Hold trees
Captive beauty
Beauty captivating

The photograph I saw can be viewed at:

It can also be viewed on my We♥It and my Pinterest pages under the heading, or tags, of "Places"

Walk With Me

A chance sighting of the title line allowed the poem to be birthed quite rapidly.

Walk With Me  -  07 Dec 13

Walk with me
Along the lanes
Past the trees
To the edge
Of the world

Our reality
Growing now
A crystal form
Inviting us on
Walk with me

A request for company on the great exploration of the future.

Another Love song, similar in some respects  to one I wrote recently but I feel sufficiently different to allow for posting it now.

Opening  -  06 Dec 13

Opening my Heart
Was so easy for you
You just had to smile
As you looked
Deep within me
Smile as you touched
That tender place
Which was always
Yours to touch
Smile as you laid
Our Hearts together

I just enjoy writing Love songs.

Looking-Glass Eyes

This poem was birthed just a few minutes after I built the post for yesterday's offering.  It was not completed then and needed to cook gently overnight, a few lines were added while I was in bed trying to sleep and the remainder emerged a few hours after I woke into the day.

It is a folk-song / Love-song which has quite a few roots in my past history of reading and listening to music.

Looking-Glass Eyes  -  04 Dec 13

We sat together
Drank some wine
You smiled
And I looked into
Your looking-glass eyes

I saw myself
And saw you watching me
As we sat and dreamed
Of our life together
Reflected in your looking-glass eyes

You showed me our new world
Vast horizons open up
And I can see where we are going
Where our Love lies …
In your looking-glass eyes

Seeing myself reflected in those Looking-Glass Eyes and liking what I see.

Anyone not aware of the meaning ... Looking-glass is an archaic phrase for mirror.

Tantalus [Acrostic]

This acrostic poem was designed in two parts ~ each illustrating the concept of the Tantalus but forming a complete whole.

Tantalus [Acrostic]  -  04 Dec 13

Touching you breathing deep
Aroma sweet intoxicating
Nothing brings me closer
To you
Arms outstretched reaching
Longing but I cannot hold you
Untold miles
Separate us

Interesting, I feel, how one word can be split into two parts ~ contradicting yet whole.

Butterfly Within

This is another of the poems which were inspired by a chance sighting of a tweet in the Twitter stream.  The end result has no relevance to what was read.

Butterfly Within  -  02 Dec 13

Momentary tremble
Wings stir the air
Cascading thoughts
Tumble from the sky
Into our now

Butterfly claps wings
Stirs reality
Opens thoughts
To otherness
Dwelling within

Random thoughts sometimes fire extremely random results.

With Dream Enfolded

Many years ago I wrote an acrostic poem entitled "Silent Night With Dream Enfolded".  Recently that title, or rather the second part thereof, has been returning to my mind and asking for something else to be done with it ~ so now ...

With Dream Enfolded  -  02 Dec 13

Wrapped …
Moments in the night
Where time stands still
Wrapped …
Evening ended
Morning not yet arrived
Wrapped …
In dream’s soft folds
Secret words whisper
In dream …
Phantoms and fantasy
Play special games

Sleep …
Through the night
With dream enfolded

One day I may add the original acrostic poem to these pages.

Silence [Acrostic]

This acrostic poem was inspired by seeing a quote from Gunilla Norris

"Within each of us, there is a silence.
A silence as vast as the Universe.
And when we experience that silence,
we discover who we are."

This is my little take on that silence.

Silence [Acrostic]  -  01 Dec 13

Simple secret movements
Infused with a magical memory
Lifted from the depths
Eternity holds the image of itself
Now reflected in the mirror of time
Connected within and without
Endlessly moving

I hope I have done justice to the original thought
