This poem grew from a framework of just the four words which form the opening lines of each stanza. Attraction - 30 Nov 13 Words I heard you speak Your words Warm honeyed Calling me Lips Brushed mine Soft angel wings Enticing Eyes Entrancing alluring Shaping touch Through sight You Complete me I Love the way these grow almost by themselves.
Nothing seemed to be flowing, I heard the single word in my mind and suddenly things became more liquid. Probability [Acrostic] - 29 Nov 13 Pen moves slowly Reluctant thoughts Originating in otherness Balance of persuasion About a selfless place Bringing new silence Into a thoughtful moment Light flows liquid Into the mind of creation Together in Infinity Yet still apart Otherness ~ the place where all dreams and poems come.
I had just finished building the post for yesterday's poem when Muse touched me and suggested another poem. Dream Seeds - 27 Nov 13 Dream seeds Scattered by the wind On frosted mornings Tapping into hidden images Secret thoughts Wrapped in phantom visions Waiting Harvest Single seed Ready to grow Flowers at night Sweet perfume fills the mind Opening doors to dream Opening dreams I rather like the rapid sequence, especially when poems with totally different feelings come into being.
Another Haikū to allow the feel of the softness of night. Velvet Night [Haikū] - 27 Nov 13 Wrapped in black velvet Stars pale ~ winter night surrounds Love always shines brighter In the night stars watch ...
Another poem with more than just a hint of "limite surréaliste". It grew during the night and really wanted to be published, so ... Moments In Hand - 25 Nov 13 Moving a moment From hand to hand Mine to yours Flowing it through Our Hearts Feeling the movement Tide of Love Touches every part Moments encapsulate A moving hand Standing still In the waves Hands wave and hold A moment of movement In motion forever I Love the way these poems flow.
A poem which grew in the late hours of yesterday and which is infused with a large measure of "limite surréaliste". Silence Between - 23 Nov 13 Words form in the silence Between sounds Music touched by thunder Contrapuntal rhythm Headache tinges the dark With unnatural shades Silence asks ~ can you hear me? Request for conversation In the spaces Under raindrops In the quiet moment A single indrawn breath Dawn Was this a dream or something bigger or even a dream of something bigger. One letter changed makes a world of difference.
I said "I haven't got a poem written yet, I'm still waiting for inspiration." Moments later ... You Inspire Me [Acrostic] - 23 Nov 13 Yesterday I had thoughts Of the way things should Unfold I did not anticipate Nor consider Simple changes Perpetrated In our lives by our Restless Souls Endlessly Moving our Love through Eternity An acrostic Love song ~ is this a first for me?
Another little Haikū to keep things flowing. Night Hunters [Haikū] - 22 Nov 13 Whispers in the night Mice plot the quest for their food Owls wait patiently This might have been partially inspired by the fact that I had watched the third part of the "Blade" trilogy last night, not that there were owls and mice in the movie but the idea of night hunters rather stuck in my mind,.
A little poem with a hint of "limite surréaliste" to add a touch of spice. Dancing In Midnight - 21 Nov 13 Midnight dancer Slow movement Beneath the watchful Moon gazing through Clouds Soft beat rhythm pulse Two Hearts move Together sliding slow Walk narrow lanes In cold lamplight Another midnight Circling dance Subtle smile shapes The night moves The song never ends I am not entirely certain where the inspiration for this came from but I feel that it works rather well.
This poem was birthed a short time after midnight while Lovely thoughts were passing through my mind. I offer it now to you ... Soft Kisses - 20 Nov 13 Soft kisses As the wind caresses My face My memory Says it is you but My vision says no Lost now In the depth of your kiss My mind surrenders Sweet surrender Happy in the flow of Your Love Lovely thoughts indeed.
Another poem, with just a hint of Love song, seen to wandering into "limite surréaliste" territory. The concept for this work had been drifting through my mind for most of the day as the idea of numbers kept nagging at me. Numbers - 18 Nov 13 One hand raised In greeting Along with a friendly Smile To shape the thought Of old worlds Gently carved From dreams Three sails raised Calling the wind Journey soon To the sun For all our dreams Of ancient times We still carry Through all our lives Muse nags very gently.
The phrase "In Darkness" formed itself in my mind just after midnight and the rest of the poem grew from there. In Darkness - 17 Nov 13 Fingertip touches In darkness Gentle breath Thrills my senses In darkness She lets me feel Love She has for me In darkness We provide the light Through our Love Just another little Love song.
This poem grew just as I had actually entered my bed, of course I was recommended to make a note of it by Muse before it faded. Night Naked - 15 Nov 13 She watches me Get undressed Stretch naked Slide into bed Her beauty wraps me Moon An actual event ~ as I was lying back I noticed the Moon watching me.
I was wondering what I could write for this poem and was just idly watching the Twitter stream when my eyes were suddenly caught by a single phrase, "AU LOMANI IKO". Fijian for "I Love You" ~ the poem just wrote itself. Words From Within - 14 Nov 13 She stood before me Smiled Spoke only three words Her voice smiled too As did her eyes Her words resonated No need to say more As she looked deep within Offered the words again I Love You Another sleepless night for the spellchecker ~ excuse me while I grin.
This poem drifted into my mind just before 01:00 this morning ~ the moment was open for me. Kiss Moment ~ 13 Nov 13 One moment kisses Opening a gate Through time Into our Hearts Sharing that kiss Opening time Gateway into forever Drowning in the kiss Moments are forever All moments are open moments and if a kiss is involved then all the better.
Just a little Senryū to illustrate the last few days in this part of the world ~ the western tip of Cornwall UK [in case you did not know]. Winter Winds [Senryū] - 12 Nov 13 Winter winds waiting Rain washes the roads again Trees already bare Hope you like it.
This is another of the "home is calling" poems with a hint of Love song added into it. Calling On The Sea - 11 Nov 13 On ancient waters Sailing Slow with a breath Your breath Waters still We move gently Invited by the sun To rest on The distant shore That calls us … Calls us home I Love these gentle songs.
Another Love song, this one is just a little step beyond the "limite surréaliste". Dark Star Symphony - 10 Nov 13 Dark star Patterns of petals Painted across Her sky Clouds wetly shine Veins drawn On faded hands Holding Rose flowering Hidden manuscript Music of the stars Playing Star Heart Warm in the touch Her breath caresses Love grows I call this a symphony because it is presented in four movements, each with a different flavour but linked.
This poem was birthed just after I posted the last one here ~ I think that it works rather well as a follow-on from that one. Words On My Heart - 07 Nov 13 Written on my Heart Words conjured By your soft hands Words formed In ink from tears of Joy By your sweet lips Heart wrapped Forever held ~ treasured By your sweet Love I really enjoy writing Love songs.
Another foray into the realms of "limite surréaliste" with a poem that straddles the midnight hour ~ the date given is when the poem was started. Slow Dance - 06 Nov 13 Slow dance We move together Feet hardly shifting Keeping the gentle sway Letting us float Slow drift Through æons Across the crowded stars Our dance Eternal Dancing by starlight Drift dance Across worlds of wonder Dawns and sunsets Painted for us everywhen Eternity is not long enough I love dancing in the Universe of "limite surréaliste"
This poem grew as a result of a special connection between two Souls. Heart Touch - 05 Nov 13 Open A heart reaches out To take my hand Asks for a kiss Craves Special company Shares itself with mine Blends No boundaries Between us Some connections are always very special.
I felt that another Haikū was called for here. I am considering a monthly Haikū to celebrate the year in growth, there may be others too but there will be at least one a month. November [Haikū] - 05 Nov 13 Fuyu kitaru Trees naked ~ waiting for snow Jyuichi gatsu The Japanese phrases mean… Fuyu kitaru ~ start of winter Jyuichi gatsu ~ November I like composing bi-lingual Haikū ~ 'tis rather fun.
Heard this in the early afternoon and the mental images stuck, so I now present them here. Hard Breath - 04 Nov 13 Listening to the Restless Earth Breathing Ragged Rattling windows Throwing hard rain Amazing what comes out when you just listen and watch.
I was trying to get to sleep when words kept wandering through my mind, Muse insisted that I made a note of them or they would be forgotten. I feel that I should make the inspiration points here; "Dawn bride's veil" comes from the first line of "Islands", one of the records by King Crimson. The hint from John Keats - "Ode to Autumn" is in the first line of his poem and a subtle reminder of "Fires At Midnight" the song from Jethro Tull completes the list of what I can see here. On with my poem ... Brides Tales - 02 Nov 13 Dawn bride Her veil captures the wind Bends it to her will Her perfume fills the sky Holds me Bride in the afternoon The mellow fruits Of autumn Share her sweet smile Intoxicating Evening bride Fires glow in the hearth Giving cheerful light Not as warm As her Love Bride of night Rich crimson blossoms Of the midnight feast Roses before dawn We share It is really good when Muse nags me to get things written so they remain to be posted here.
I wrote something similar a while ago but my memory says that this is sufficiently different to allow publication here ... now, Now And Forever - 01 Nov 13 I remember you From the days that Are yet to come We have been together Through all our Eternities In all our times together We have we I hope the differences are sufficient to allow enjoyment.
Another glimpse of the wilderness, images in the pre-dawn dark. Stillness - 01 Nov 13 In the moments Between moonset And sunrise Darkness fills The wilderness Hear my song Your voice Carries across the sky Fills my mind And in the wilderness I ask you Sing my song Silence holds The trackless land Waits with bated breath For sunrise Stillness holds me Be my song There may be more wilderness poems somewhen soon.
