More naughty thoughts ... *grin*

Comfort  -  31 Aug 13

Lying in the comforting
Soft tender kisses
Seeing with fingertips
Starlight filters through window
Hinting at the wonders
That the fingers
Have already seen
Looking further …
Warm sigh
Pleasure shiver

There will almost certainly be more to come in the near future.

Thoughts upon a relationship.

Responses  -  29 Aug 13

A smile for a smile
Her eyes looked
Within me
Saw how I saw her
Knew what my words meant
Knew how I felt
Laid her words
Within me
Left no doubt
About how she felt
I knew
We knew

Just the way it feels for me.

Dancing With Friends

Just a little poem to celebrate those open spaces.

Dancing With Friends  -  29 Aug 13

On the shoreline
Trees invite
Ocean invites
I join the dance

Sun warms the sand
On which I dance
In the sky
With my friends

A simple piece just to convey a bit of joy.

In And Out

Just allowing some special thoughts to journey through my mind, the result was this poem.

In And Out  -  28 Aug 13

Gentle touches
Without words
She was always within
Now she is without
Her smile melts my Heart
She knew me
She knows me
With me

I Love the places my mind goes and what it sees.

Drowning In Joy

Another little Love song.

Drowning In Joy  -  26 Aug 13

In a sea of words
You drowned me
I took no breaths
Just submerged
Surrounded by the joy
That is

You gave me life
And Love
From your depths
Surrounded me
With your Loves words
Held me close in
Warm embrace

Nothing more needs be said ~ except a "thank you" to Muse for the inspiration.

Love's Ocean

These thoughts drifted through my mind and came together to allow me to transcribe them.

Love's Ocean  -  26 Aug 13

Starlight shimmers
Glinting off the wave tops
She moved me
In ways
That lifted my Soul
To her heights
Love surrounded me
Washed me
Carried me to her
On the
Ocean of Love

I Love the way Muse can offer suggestions and encourage poems to emerge.

Forever One

This poem grew just after midnight and is a special Love song.

Forever One  -  25 Aug 13

In the promise
Of a kiss
Laid in a moment
Of passion

Two Souls
Take the same breath
Watch as the bodies
Grow together
Became one

Promises in Eternity
Resting on a dream
Cradled in Love
Wrapped in a Hearts kiss

I like the way this one flows.

Light In Dark

I feel that this has to be classified as another "limite surréaliste" poem ~ I have no idea where it came from or where it might be headed.

Light In Dark  -  24 Aug 13

Darkness never absolute
Stars bring infinite
Images of light
Shuttered windows
Cannot hide
Eyes always watching
I look within
Without limit
Going there now

Happy to work with surreal poems and images ~ always have Loved them.

This was vaguely inspired by listening to some old songs and these first words arrived in my mind to fire my thoughts.

Traveller  -  22 Aug 13

I am a lonely traveller
Walking the empty streets
Looking for the one

Ancient tears
Have washed the dust
From my eyes
But still
My vision is blurred

Questing long
Still looking though I know
She waits for me
I will find her

Thank you Muse, for the suggestions.

Spring Haikū

This, my first attempt at a multi-lingual Haikū, was inspired by seeing the opening words on the web and I realised that they had a five-syllable structure.  I couldn't pass up the opportunity to construct an Haikū from the gift.

Spring Haikū  -  21 Aug 13

Kaze hikaru
Lovers night kiss ~ Moon smiling
Opening the Heart

Kaze hikaru ~ a warm breeze of spring that follows after a dark cold winter, comes and breathes gently upon the skin, as if like a shining radiance.

I have to admit to being rather pleased with the result.

Secret Words

Another of the Inappropriate Thoughts ~ just for the fun of it ...

Secret Words  -  20 Aug 13

She whispered
Secret words
She knew would
Enflame me
Take me to another level
Teasing smile
Coquette look
She knew how to play me …
Her instrument
Fingers lightly stroking
Flute sings a song
Of passion
Hers forever

I do rather like Inappropriate Thoughts ~ they give a certain zest to life.

Round Dance

The full moon showed herself and inspired a few words.

Round Dance  -  20 Aug 13

Her dance continues
She shares herself
With all
Face veiled
Deep in thought
Always watching us
We dance her dance
Throughout our lives
Inspired by her moves

I have visited this Moon dance theme on several occasions through the years in which I have been writing poetry.

Rain Wash

This poem was inspired while looking out of my window on a dark afternoon, watching the rain fall and seeing two young people walking past laughing and without any form of rain protection.

Rain Wash  -  18 Aug 13

Gentle drops
Chase each other
Across the sky
Cascade around me
Shower in the rain

Tomorrows wind
Blows through my memory
Catching the raindrops
Making rainbows
For us
Shower in colours

I Love the way Muse offers her suggestions.

A few more little naughty thoughts.

Completing  -  18 Aug 13

Soft gentle touches
Shift my thoughts
Return them to her
Completing me with her

Gentle touches
Of her thoughts
Caress my mind
Wake me to her

Soft lips lay a trail
Of kisses
In sometimes
Unexpected places

Sensuous sigh
Warm breeze from her Heart
Blowing softly
On my skin

I rather like naughty thoughts *naughty grin*.

I thought this was going to take me in a totally different direction but instead I was brought here.

Eldren  -  16 Aug 13

The rocky road
Leads to a land
Where the watchers watch

The children of the Old Ones
Have been there
Through all Eternity

Inviting us to see
With their eyes and

My original idea is still bubbling away...

Pale Moon

I was aware that the honeysuckle was in bloom and my memory reminded me of the fragrance, from this was the poem birthed.

Pale Moon  -  16 Aug 13

Pale Moon shines
Darkness is near complete
Flowers of night
Give their perfume
To the sky
In serenade
For the stars

I can still see the flowers and smell them too.

Night Of Dream

Another example of the title forming first followed after quite a long pause by the rest of the poem.

Night Of Dream  -  15 Aug 13

Cocoon of Moon
Cradling into the darkness
Starlight shadows
On the wall
Outline the dreams
Sketched in pastel colours
On the blackboard of night
Dreams have life
Revealed by darkness
Close your eyes
And see them

This is not quite what I was expecting but I feel that it works.

I was convinced that this had to be a long poem, wrote the title and the first stanza then let it sit and "cook" for a while.  I looked at it again and tried to compose the second stanza but nothing would come.
It was only when I re-read it that I realised that it was actually complete.

Need  -  14 Aug 13

I touched you
Called you to me
So I could hold you
And ask you
Hold me

Sometimes Muse surprises me with her negative suggestions.

Part Of My World

Another example of a poem growing out of the title line.  It actually arrived from Muse and I had to wait for the actual poem to follow ~ I was convinced that owls would feature since I could hear Tawny Owls calling through my open window but Muse had other ideas.

Part Of My World  -  13 Aug 13

Moments of existence
Secret places in my mind
Hold time in a gentle grasp
Paints a memory
On the walls
For me to read

Dreams wrap
Velvet claws
Around the shattered
Fragments of a strange
Sculpted by my thoughts

My world overlaps me
In ways unexpected
Here a shard of me
Reflects a small part
Of my world

Maybe Owls will appear tomorrow.

Earth Song

This poem grew in the very early hours of the day and has its roots in many different places.

Earth Song  -  12 Aug 13

The song of ancient Earth
Has been carried
Through the ages
Like an hymn
A battle cry
An open prayer
A Love song

She has waited
In time and times
Illuminated by the stars
Sipping from a cup
Of wine
In the gardens of Love

Mildly inspired by “Das Lied von der Erde”  ~ Gustav Mahler

Inappropriate Thoughts

Sitting, wondering how to start this poem when some interesting thoughts passed through my mind ~ 'twas a very short step to this poem forming.

Inappropriate Thoughts  -  11 Aug 13

Watching you
Thinking of how we met
Wondering how
We can take this further
Touching you
Caressing you
My lips exploring
Your hands wandering
Across around over
Sigh …
Thoughts wandering
Across around over
Resting in places
Secret thoughts
Giving pleasure

A slightly naughty grin ☺

Birthed just after midnight when the moments seemed to be just right.

Moments  -  10 Aug 13

In the movement
Of a moment
Grasped with gentle hands
The single flower
Shines in Love

We have touched
That moment
Tasted the beauty
In the breath
Of a Goddess
Moving through
Us all

We have all experienced those moments.

Blending Into We

Another poem verging on the surreal ~ it grew just a little while into the afternoon and waited till just past the midnight hour to complete.

Blending Into We  -  08 Aug 13

Where the I ends
The sea begins
We blend
Within I meet you

Where the you ends
I begin
We know no boundaries
Within you meet me

We never end
We never begin
In our Eternity
We meet We

Some of the phrasing was left deliberately vague, I feel that it was necessary to maintain the surreal effect.

Opening Senses

I feel that this is really a story but it did not have the courage to enter prose.  Never mind, it still works I feel.

Opening Senses  -  08 Aug 13

Eyes see what
The mind thinks
Ears hear what
Is often not there
Tongue tastes what
Can be a memory
Nose smells what
Is a suggestion
Lips kiss what
A fantasy presents
Closing disillusion
Eyes see the beauty
Ears hear the symphony
Tongue tastes the nectar
Nose smells a single flower
Lips kiss the Love

It may well be converted at some point though.

Eternity [acrostic]

I sat for a while staring at the screen, I knew that I wanted to create another poem but only one word arrived in my mind.  It took a fair amount of time before I realised what it was that Muse was hinting at ~ but when I did this acrostic was birthed.

Eternity [acrostic]  -  07 Aug 13

Ever since we met
Time has changed
Eternal dreams
Roll through my mind
Never the same twice
In each moment
Transient but forever
Your Love has shown me

Just a little Love song.

Promise Of The Wind

Part way between Love story, fairytale and something slightly surreal ~ I feel that this combination works rather well.

Promise Of The Wind  -  05 Aug 13

For I have listened
To the wind
I have heard her sigh
She asked me to go with her
To a distant land
Where we can be together
I have listened
And found her offer
I took her hand
We flew
Wind touched my Soul
Showed me

Listening to the wind can bring inspiration.

Light Bringer

Looking out of my window at the rain-filled sky, I was suddenly inspired to write a few words.  They grew into the poem you see here.

Light Bringer  -  04 Aug 13

Darkness never chosen
Wrapped itself
Around me
Birds sweep past

Entered my life
Things changed
I changed
You brought light
Love and life

Shorter than I had anticipated but it works I think.

The opening line kept reverberating through my mind till I actually wrote it as the first line and the rest seemed to flow.

Sunrise  -  04 Aug 13

Purple sunrise
Paints the desert
Lights the sky
In ways unexpected

Soul paints sunrise
Taking forms
Turning them
We sing them now

Song of sunrise
Wisps of smoky cloud
Wrapped around us
We swim in purple

Still not certain what it is about.

This poem came about just from watching the sky and wondering ...

Promising more
Never providing

Then withholding
Giving frustration

Thunder in the distance
Rain promise fulfilled

 ... whether it would actually rain ~ it did, eventually.

Eternity's Song

Birthed, as is so often the case, in the very early hours of the day and only delayed till today because I already had a poem scheduled for posting.
Read on ...

Eternity's Song  -  01 Aug 13

In our dreams
We have seen
The special places
Where our Souls
Have played
We know the Joy
We have always felt
The touch
Our touch
The song of Eternity

By candles mystic gleam
We danced
Our Souls took the magic
Wove it into
Took us further
Into where
Our dreams grew
Became our reality
Became we

I feel that Muse was really offering something special on this early morning.

Ashes In The Sky

Another of the little Love poems which, even though small, took some time to grow ~ I think it is now complete.

Ashes In The Sky  -  31 Jul 13

The ashes of forgotten Loves
Drawn across
The sad sky
By a careless wind
Grey ash clouds grey sky

Tears wash my eyes
Clear my vision
I see new Love
Around me ~ surround me
Within me

Wondering how these will come together in the end.
