Dream of You

Listening to the echoes of a dream.  Hearing me call...

Dream of You  -  26 Jan 13

My dream
Is on its way
To carry you home
To me

A wish born
Of gentle chords
Sung by the wind
Written on the air

A kiss in the night
Before the Moon
Saw us
Whisper the darkness away

The cloak of winds
Wrapped us in shadow
Dream borne
Cascading myth

Ride my dream my Love
Fly through the
Formless dark
Come back to me

Again I thank Muse for her suggestions and guidance.

Shades of Night

In these lines so many meanings lie woven, intertwined, bound in the fabric.
I read my words repeatedly and each time see something different ... what do you see?

Shades of Night  -  25 Jan 13

Opening to the dark
Mystic shades circle
In nightshade robes

Beautiful woman
Crying in her night
Room encloses her dream

Tears blur the candle
Painted stars peel from her walls
Make a doorway to somewhen

A peal of bells ring out
Cracked … discordant
Dawn breaks the night

Broken worlds lost in time
Grass conducts a symphony
Wave on wave

Ocean dark
White horses ride the waves
Canter cantata opening move

Opening to the dark
. . .

Written in the very early hours of the day, ages since sunset and more till sunrise ... Moon keeps me company as Muse whispers.

Sitting, wondering what to do when suddenly Muse offered a few words to trigger a cascade of words of my own.

Calling  -  20 Jan 13

Moon over ocean
Songs calling me home
Alien stars in an
Alien sky
Beautiful … but not my own

She over me
Whispers calling me to her
Gentle Love touching
Holding me tenderly

Worlds apart
Yet so close
Our worlds together
I close my eyes and
I am home … with you

Words from Muse are always interesting.

The Mystic's Dream

I was listening to a track by Loreena McKennitt and though I wasn't fully aware of her words, the rhythm and sound textures triggered something in my mind and Muse prompted me to write.

The Mystic's Dream  -  19 Jan 13

The dance takes
Open a window in the Soul

As the Mystic dreams
Through an image

From an open door
A possible land

Unicorn tosses his head
Wash across the shore

Water from the well
Drinking wisdom

Through the night that sings
Places in an Infinite dream

From birth to posting only took about ninety minutes ~ with some assistance from Muse.
Just discovered that the Loreena McKennitt track is called "The Mystic's Dream", I should like to apologise for unintentionally stealing that title for my use.  Though I feel that since both works are so different there is no copyright infringement.

Unexpected Touch

This was an unexpected result of posting the #mindfulwriting post on Dolphin Ainsley [a WordPress blog] today.  The original text of the post is highlighted in italic in the version here and both make, I feel, for interesting reading.
See what you think and comment if you will.

Unexpected Touch  -  13 Jan 13

An unexpected touch
In the cool of morning
When you came to me

Mental fingers
Played across my body
Taking thoughts … lifting

Stroking memories
Warming them again
Till they glowed in my mind

Reawakening our connection
Shared moments together
Moments of laughter and of Love

… Waiting to see you …
… Wanting to see you …
… Longing to see you …
… Again …

I really feel that both versions work and definitely thank Muse for her inspiration.

Whispers Calling

In late afternoon words started to form, gently prompted by Muse.  Letting you decide how well this works.

Whispers Calling  -  08 Jan 13

Whispers from an ancient land
Æons old
An æon ago
Whispers calling
Asking to be heard

Return beloved
Come back and we
Can play again
On the shores
Along the strand

Stars pick out our dreams
Blur the edges of the day
Shine sweetly in our

The ancient land
Once again shall see us dance
Hear our laughter
As we whisper to our dreams
In the night

I thank Muse for her inspiratioin.
