Morning Ride

An actual event ~ slightly embellished for the sake of poetic feelings.

Morning Ride  -  28 Dec 14

Into the East
Sunrise in my eyes
Dark horizons
Behind me
Spectra shone
From ice left by the night
I watch for
The beauty of the day
And the unfolding

Day over
Returning to the West
Lights at the end of the world
Lighthouse in a hidden sea

Orion looks down
Watches me
Shows me the Moon
She watches
Caresses in a frost painted night

The light of dawn
Now a memory
Dark horizon
Surrounds me

A very frosty morning and on return the frost was settling again.

End of the world refers to Land's End and the lighthouse is Longshhips, since the night was dark the sea was invisible.  Orion is my favourite constellation and the Moon is a first quarter crescent.

Touching Dreams

A Love song inspired by a chance-seen image of sand falling from a hand.  The rest came from my Muse.

Touching Dreams  -  28 Dec 14

Grains of sand
Between my toes
Under my fingers
I touch
Let them trickle
From my hands
Each one a crystal
Holding a dream
Fragments of we
Shining always
We touch
Let the waves
Take us
Weave our dreams

Love the way these form from little images and thoughts.

Dream Smiles

Another Love song.

Dream Smiles  -  23 Dec 14

The echoes of the distant day
Rolling through the mists
I see your face sketched
In my dreams
Your smile brings warmth
Shining through my body

I make no apologies for another Love song.

Dark Wind

A poem taking me into night so that I can meet . .

Another of the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence of Love songs.

Dark Wind  -  23 Dec 14

As the dark wind
Blows through ebon branches
Sweeping stars from
The moonlight path
As the dark night
Paints shadows across the sky
Between the cloud
And moonbow
The wind whispers
A lullaby to carry me
Into sleep
So I can travel
The five thousand miles
To be with my Love

I enjoy the meetings.

Stories about Love songs and Lust songs.

Stories  -  22 Dec 14

You never told me
The stories of you
Or how we came to be
Together now

You never read
My stories on my lips
Though you tasted them …
Lingered on certain words

You never hid
Anything from me
Our stories woven together
With kisses

Special stories,

Solstice Promise

A celebration of the Solstice with a hint of Love song.

Solstice Promise  -  21 Dec 14

Light wishes
Darkness washes away
Your promise fills me
So does your Love

Ever growing
Never slowing
From Solstice to Solstice
Promise fulfilled

Promise of the Winter Solstice and a promise of Love.

Thursday, 25 December 2014

Sweet Sounds

Another Love song with just a little Lust song.

Sweet Sounds  -  20 Dec 14

The sweet sound
Gentle whispers in my ears
Telling me
How you feel about me
I echo your song
We sing a soft duet
Interwoven with
Sweeter kisses
Mingling with
Soft sighs

The softest sounds are often the sweetest.

Wednesday, 24 December 2014

Butterfly Night

Inspired by an event which occurred in the very early hours [about 02:00] when two Butterflies appeared in my office.

Butterfly Night  -  18 Dec 14

Messengers of Transformation
Visiting in the night
Circling the room
Circling me
Weaving a spell of change
In me and through me
Touching me lightly
Butterfly kisses

A really magical moment.

Passion Transcending

After re-reading an old poem I realised that it still fitted with my life and with me.  So, here I present my response to the poem ~ though I do not feel that it is appropriate to quote the poem here.

Passion Transcending  -  17 Dec 14

Once upon a moment
Hidden gestures
Secret whispers
All the miles
Private passions
Transcend distance
Make fairytales real
Happily everaftering
As the passion flows

It is amazing how fluid passion is and how well it flows.

Monday, 22 December 2014

Under The Cloak

A Love song with a little Lust song added for good measure.

Under The Cloak  -  16 Dec 14

Night wraps us
A cloak of stars
Diamonds in darkness
Light from the evening
Shines into the dawn
Reflects from star to star
We smile
Pull the cloak closer
And share a kiss
And more

These blends have a little more spice I feel.

Sunday, 21 December 2014

Telling Me

A Love song about those Lovely Loving whispers.

Telling Me  -  15 Dec 14

Whispers in my dreams
You spoke to me
Told me how you knew
Let me know you cared

In the dreams
Whispering to each other
In the language of Love

You listened to me
As I shared your words

Our whispers in the night

We have all had and heard those whispers.

Saturday, 20 December 2014

Five Thousand

Another of the "Five Thousand Miles" Love song series.

Five Thousand  -  14 Dec 14

Two Hearts beat together
Five thousand miles
Separate them
Love binds them

Whispers in the miles
Talk to us ~ talk from us
Miles are nothing
When Hearts
Share the secrets
Of Love

Miles are a small inconvenience when Love is the reality.

Forgotten Tomorrows

Another Love song with a reminder that the important time is NOW.

Forgotten Tomorrows  -  13 Dec 14

Holding the thoughts
Of us
All we do
In everything we do
Enjoying life
You and me
In every way
There are
Forgotten tomorrows
Because what we have

Now is everything and everywhen.

Thursday, 18 December 2014

Forgotten Emotions

Barely recalled memories and emotions from times past.

Forgotten Emotions  -  12 Dec 14

Emotions wander through
Mind and body
The form of you
Still holds my attention
All I see
Is how happy we are
Old emotions of other people
Gladly forgotten

It is interesting how some people re-emerge, unwanted, in memories.

Wednesday, 17 December 2014

Holding You

One of those special little Love songs which carry a message.

Holding You  -  11 Dec 14

Feeling the special thoughts
As I whisper your name
Waiting for the answer
I know will come

Listening for you
I hold you close
You have a special place
Within my Heart and life

Just a special little message.

Tuesday, 16 December 2014

Wind Shadow

Another of the weather observations thankfully, like the others, I did not have to experience them at first hand.

Wind Shadow  -  10 Dec 14

Huddled in the lee
Hearing the wind
Loud sighing crying
Around me
Rain still fills the road
And with the wind
Slaps me

Just listening and watching through my window.

Monday, 15 December 2014

Soul Sees Me

A Love song with a deeper feel.

Soul Sees Me  -  09 Dec 14

Looking deep within your eyes
I see me looking at you
In my eyes I see Love
As I watch you
Shares the vision

Seeing the mirror.

Sunday, 14 December 2014

Hard Rain

Another observation of the weather which inspired a poem.

Hard Rain  -  08 Dec 14

Listening to the rain
Hissing on the roof
Hard sounds
Cast from an angry cloud
Hard rain

Rain and sleet seem to feature rather strongly at this time of year.

Saturday, 13 December 2014


Another Love song, I would say "plain and simple" but in Love there is nothing of the kind.

Bliss  -  07 Dec 14

Into bliss
You showed me how
Took my hand
To lead me
Into your Heart

The path well hidden
No one else could know
Would know
For it was a path
Just for me

Leading on
Further into your Love
Away from the world
To share your bliss
With me

Love is as complex as you care to make it but Bliss is always the result.

Friday, 12 December 2014

Dragon Nights

Another meeting with the Dragons.

Dragon Nights  -  07 Dec 14

Wings carry dreams
Through starlit realms
Across the silver Moon
Midnight holds no secrets
From the Dragon eye
As he watches
Through the night

They are everywhere ~ all you have to do is look.

Thursday, 11 December 2014

Wishes We Grew

A Love song with a touch of history.

Wishes We Grew  -  06 Dec 14

Can you remember
That time before we met
When wishes were
All we had
And all we could hope
To fill our lives

We grew wishes
From unexpected seeds
Exchanging words
Suddenly we realised
That we were saying
More ~ much more

From simple beginnings
We discovered the foundations
Built upon them
Now we can look back
And ask
Can you remember

Can you remember the beginnings?

Wednesday, 10 December 2014

Wind Whip

A weather related observation.

Wind Whip  -  06 Dec 14

Wind whirls around
Trees dance
Restless movements
Rattle the door
Shake the windows
Fingertips chilled
The wind still sings
A mournful song
Cold day

I can still feel the wind.

Tuesday, 9 December 2014

Dark Mirror

Another Love song, this time with a little twist.

Dark Mirror  -  05 Dec 14

Dark mirror
Your beauty hidden
In the folds of night
Mirror reflects
What we want to see
Mirror’s dark mystery
Tries to hide
Your beauty
I want to see you
As you stand before me
Shining in the mirror
Your light
Shatters the dark

A little twist which shows what I am really looking at.

Monday, 8 December 2014

Winter Cold

Converting a simple event into a poem.

Winter Cold  -  04 Dec 14

Thin light of a cold day
Fades quickly
As the sun hides
First in cloud
Then below the horizon
Clouds draw a curtain
On a cold day

This seems to be a fairly normal thing at this time of year.

Sunday, 7 December 2014


Another Love song for your enjoyment.

Jewel  -  03 Dec 14

Diamond in the night
Reflecting stars
Moonlight glimmer
Behind cloud
But never dimmed

Shines the jewel
In satin wrapped
Kept in my pocket
Bright as your Love
Never dimmed

Night’s jewels
Glow in your eyes
Shine from your Heart
Showing me
Your Love

Love shines brightly.

Saturday, 6 December 2014


Another experiment in structure.  The number of words in each line changes from the initial kisses till the next then the pattern is repeated providing a rhythm ~ like breathing or the movements of waves.

Something inspired by kisses.

Kisses  -  02 Dec 14

Sweetest keys
To unlock Hearts
Open them to Love
The greatest gift
Given freely
On hands
Gentle neck nuzzles
Raise the temperature now
Passion burn starting
Firing our

I, personally, like the effect.

Friday, 5 December 2014


A Love song with words to fill Hearts.

Speaking  -  01 Dec 14

She used words to me
Words that nobody
Had ever spoken to me
They flowed into me
Over me and touched me
In ways which flooded my senses
Filled my mind
Left me with a single thought
One word burned brightly

Hearts and minds.

Drifting {Ocean Symphony]

You may feel that a re-read of the poem "Drifting" posted on 30 Nov 14 may be used as a Prelude to this piece.  This  poem is constructed in a symphonic form so that four parts can be read together.

Drifting [Ocean Symphony}  -  30 Nov 14

I ~ Opening

Slow ~ with the waves
Feeling the gentle surge
Lift me
Spin me gently
Turn me to face the sun

II ~ Seaweed Forest

Mermaids dance around the fronds
Tails flow in myriad colours
Catch the rippling sun
Their song of enchantment
Opens Hearts to the beauty
Capturing the moment

III ~ Poseidon’s Gate

Pearl treasure
Ancient doors reflect the beauty
Inviting entry
A welcome within the coral halls
Written in crystal words
Of the aquamarine harmonies

IV ~ Home

Warm ~ kiss of the sun
Wet ~ the ocean’s kiss says secret Love
Dry ~ the sand beneath my feet Earth’s kiss
Hidden ~ a mermaid’s kiss
Remembered ~ held in mind the gifts
My Lover’s kiss to welcome me home

There is just a hint of Love song here too.

Wednesday, 3 December 2014

World Of Wonder

Another poem of Love song and Lust song.

World Of Wonder  -  29 Nov 14

Watching you move
Slowly circling me
Coquettish smile
Touches me everywhere

You have shown me
Your world and shown me
Wonders shine

In your smile a promise
The sparkle of your eyes
A secret gift
To be unwrapped in private


Tuesday, 2 December 2014

Imagining [Acrostic]

This poem is structured as an acrostic but, in feel, it is intentionally rather disjointed rather in the manner of a half-remembered dream.

Imagining [Acrostic]  -  28 Nov 14

In an open thought
Mountainous clouds tower
Air torn by lightning
Gems of ice scatter before the dawn
Inside a secret dream
Never told in waking moments
Imaging the imagination
Night smiles hold the secrets
Gifts in the dark

Watching the secrets unfold.

Monday, 1 December 2014

Soul Deep

A rather emotional Love song.

Soul Deep  -  27 Nov 14

Vision blurring your words
Paper damp from the Joy
You touched me deeply
More than I expected
Soul deep
Read your words
Heard your voice
Resonating in my Heart
Kissing my Soul
Loving me

Anyone who has ever been in Love will recognise the feelings.

Sunday, 30 November 2014


Just a little Love song but filled with meaning.

Drifting  -  26 Nov 14

Forever drifting
With you
Held deep within each other
Gently slide
Across the ocean
Of our Love

Ocean dreams.

Saturday, 29 November 2014


A Love song with a tasty edge.

Bouquet  -  25 Nov 14

Flowers in a bouquet
Loves gift
Always sweet
Herbal garnish
For a banquet
A Lover’s gift
Lovers tasting
Feast of Love

A few little herbs and spices to add a little piquancy.

Friday, 28 November 2014

Doors Of Me

A sort of Love song with just a hint of Lust song.

Doors Of Me  -  24 Nov 14

Opening doors to me
Your hands
Shaped my thoughts
My mind

Opening me to you
Your hands
Shaping me
Lifting me
Pulling me into you
Taking me
Through my door
To you

Well  maybe a little more than a hint.

Thursday, 27 November 2014


An alliterative version of an acrostic poem.

Who  -  24 Nov 14

Words unexpected
Washed over me
Waves drew patterns
Without pens

How did you know our
Heaven would be offering a
Honeysuckle kiss

Our dreams
Once opened and shared
Overpower dark nightmares

Hope you like this variation on a construction theme.

Wednesday, 26 November 2014

Silent Whispers

Entrusting the whispers to the Universe.

Silent Whispers  -  22 Nov 14

Silence holds us
Wraps the candle
Warm flicker
Burns the paper
On which
The secrets of our Love
To the flame
Ash still holds the words
Smoke carries the whisper
From us
To the Universe

Warm whispers shared between Lovers.

Tuesday, 25 November 2014

Thank You

Exactly what it says on the tin ~ a little poem of thanks.

Thank You  -  21 Nov 14

I never knew
Just how much
You would come to mean
To me
Or how much
You would become
Part of my life
Part of me

Because of all the things
We have done
Shared words and smiles
Shared thoughts
And in that sharing
Became one
One important thing must be said
Thank you

I hope you like it.

Monday, 24 November 2014

Empty Places

This is a Love song but with a rather wistful air to it ... waiting.

Empty Places  -  20 Nov 14

Empty spaces
Dark deserted rooms
In ruined castles
Cobwebbed halls
Dusty cupboards
To vacant thoughts

Empty places
In my mind
Held open
Waiting for you
To fill them
With your smile
Fill me

Waiting for the answering smile and more.

Sunday, 23 November 2014


Another Love song told in an Eternal moment.

Instant  -  20 Nov 14

An instant of thought
I have known you
In that Eternal instant
When you and I met
We knew
The instant would grow
It filled us
We filled it
We filled We

That Eternal moment when everything is possible.

Saturday, 22 November 2014

Hidden Dreams

Quite an intense Love song this time.

Hidden Dreams  -  18 Nov 14

Hidden dreams
Secrets kept in my pocket
Keeping you hidden
From prying eyes

My dreams ~ our dreams
Have filled all my hours
Opened the gates to Love
Where we can play
Watch the days flow
Become Infinities

Hope you enjoy and, perhaps, find an echoing chord in you.

Friday, 21 November 2014

Flowers In Your Hand

A Love song with a special touch.

Flowers In Your Hand  -  17 Nov 14

You had a gift for me
Said it was a little thing
You held it out
To me
Covered in the flowers
A glowing spark
Which lit the Universe
The ultimate gift
Your Love

A very special gift.

Thursday, 20 November 2014


A poem with a hint of a Love song.

Afternoons  -  16 Nov 14

Afternoons in sunshine
Painted silk
Blowing in a gentle breeze
Hint of rain
Carried in the air
Sweet smells
Fading slow evening whispers
Invite the afternoon
To share the colours
The stories
The dreams

Dreams of Love.

Wednesday, 19 November 2014

Forest Song

A Love song with a slightly different flavour.

Forest Song  -  16 Nov 14

In the ancient forest
I heard you call my name

A stream sang with you
Echoed your call

The haunting words of a whisper
Hang from a branch for me to catch

You lead me through the trees
To where you wait for me

Take my hand and I will lead you
To where I am waiting for you

The ancient night surrounds us now
Holds us close in Love

All Love songs have their own flavours ~ this is one of many.

Tuesday, 18 November 2014

Dream Visitation

A Love song and Lust song too.

Dream Visitation  -  15 Nov 14

You visited me
In my sleep
Gently entered my dream
Reached out
Took me by my hand
Leaned forward
Whispered the words
To enchant me
Hold me to you
There was no need
For I was already

I Love these combination songs where the elements of Love and Lust can be found in varying peoportions.

Monday, 17 November 2014


A few little sensuous thoughts.

Sleep  -  14 Nov 14

Diving under the duvet
Cradled by a pillow
Thinking of you
As I slide into sleep
Dreaming of you
Letting my Love
Talk to you
In our dream

Exploring all the many aspects of thought.

Sunday, 16 November 2014

Touching Me

Another Lust song ~ nothing more to be said.

Touching Me  -  12 Nov 14

Gentle fingers on my spine
Coax pleasant shivers
Sudden indrawn breath
Sigh of delight
We turn and face
Lips to lips
Eyes say please
Soft moan in the sigh

Rather enjoying the Lust songs.

Saturday, 15 November 2014

Waiting For

Another little poem with a strong element of "limite surréaliste".

Waiting For  -  12 Nov 14

Another day
Light in the sky
Shadows ripple
Waves on the river
Sunlight glints
Heaven is not this Lovely
I am home
Paradise can wait
For me

The penultimate line was the first to appear and the rest just flowed from there.

Friday, 14 November 2014

We Now

Another little Lust song.

We Now  -  10 Nov 14

A gentle touch
Sliding up
Through thoughts
Entwined with memories

We hold
Fingers wrapped
In hands sharing
The now of we

I Love the way these Lust songs are working out.

Thursday, 13 November 2014

Tiny Love Letter

One of the smallest of all Love letters but more important than all the long missives.

Tiny Love Letter  -  09 Nov 14

You offered a petal
Love letter
On a single
Of a flower

I smelled the essence
Of the rose
Perfume of the ink
Still carried
On the petal

I read three words
I knew
All you needed to say
Was held there
For me

I breathe in the perfume.

Wednesday, 12 November 2014

She Said

A Love song but more than that ~ a sensuous Lust song.

She Said  -  08 Nov 14

Close your eyes
She said
Let me take you
On a journey

Listen to my words
She said
I will guide you
Where you have never been

Feel my touch
She said
My fingers know your secrets
They will tell you mine

Taste my kiss
She said
You and I will touch
Just like our lips

Feel me
She said
Let our senses blend
We shall be together forever

Know me
She said
Let our passions fire us
We can light our world

I hope you like this offering.

Tuesday, 11 November 2014

Images Of You

A Love song with a hint of "limite surréaliste" to add a little spice.

Images Of You  -  07 Nov 14

Before me and with me
I see you
Inner me
Has watched you dance
Nights in red velvet
Hair flowing
Watched you walk
Beside the sea
Your dress matched
Aquamarine waves
Watched you dream
Under the tree
On a hot afternoon
Dressed in cool blue
Organza flow
In all these
Images of you
One thing is constant
I see your

The flow is constant.

Monday, 10 November 2014

Calling You

A Love song with more than a little sensuality and Lust.

Calling You  -  06 Nov 14

I once tasted
A cup of you
In my dreams
I was intoxicated
Totally entranced

Now in every waking
Waking dream
I hunger for you
Craving the taste
I call you

I Love these Lust and sensual poems.

Sunday, 9 November 2014

Our Secret

Honey-sweet secrets ~ shared with the one who knows.

Our Secret  -  06 Nov 14

Hint of honey
From a secret kiss
You gave me
When no one was watching
Our secret
Only we can share
The honey
Tasted once
Never forgotten

No one else shall know.

Saturday, 8 November 2014

Sharing My World

Title says it all ~ I just want to share my world with you.

Sharing My World  -  05 Nov 14

Offering my world to you
In all the various levels
Of imagination
From reality
To where I exist

Sharing my world
Giving you a part of it
So you can hold
A small piece of me

Hope you enjoy your journey through me.

Friday, 7 November 2014

Secret Night

Just a little Love song ~ I think I may have used those words before but they are still valid.

Secret Night  -  04 Nov 14

Moments in the secret time
Night holds a special form
Place where we can meet
Touch our thoughts into life
Breathe fire into them
With a whisper

Those whispers can say so very much.

Thursday, 6 November 2014

Moonlight Songs

A Love song ~ need I say more?

Moonlight Songs  -  03 Nov 14

Darkness brought us together
Wrapped us in the cloth of starlight
Sang songs in the moonlight
You suggested we kiss
Brought light into darkness
Moon whispers
Starlight sings
Darkness no more

Lovely when they flow ~ whatever the light.

Wednesday, 5 November 2014

Rain Time

Another nocturnal weather observation.

Rain Time  -  02 Nov 14

Constant chatter
Against my window
Rain talks again
Time of dry may be over
Till another year
Rain time wraps
Moist fingers
Around the day
Carries it into the night

This time of year tends to give rise to more rain ~ I really hope it does not last too long.

Tuesday, 4 November 2014

Night River

A nocturnal version of the natural world watching sequence.

Night River  -  01 Nov 14

Rivers in the gutter
Reflect light from windows
In the darkness
Rooms filled with
Different worlds
In each random flickering
Completely elsewhen
I return to my river
Wander on

Watching the world can be accomplished even with eyes closed.

Monday, 3 November 2014

Rain Song Remains

This poem started out as a weather observation but reformed itself into quite an intense Love song.

Rain Song Remains  -  31 Oct 14

I can still hear the rain
Even though it stopped
A while ago
My ears remember

I still feel the drops
Gently kiss my skin
From a sky dark
My body remembers

I still hear your voice
Wandering through my thoughts
From our conversations
My mind remembers

I still feel your Love
Flowing through me
From you to me and back again
I remember

I Love the way these things happen.

Sunday, 2 November 2014

Hidden Worlds

After reading that I see things in different ways to other people I was inspired to write this poem.

Hidden Worlds  -  30 Oct 14

With eyes that see
The world in different colours
Which everyone else
Can miss
I see your Love
Shine out and fill
Me and my world

Those hidden worlds
In which I live
Hold wonders
To explore
I offer them to you
Come with me
To journey in Love

So ~ this is a Love song and an invitation to journey with me.

Saturday, 1 November 2014

Night Watch

A little Mystery poem with a hint of reality.

Night Watch  -  29 Oct 14

Awake in the night
Mist slow moves
Dragons breathing deep
Does not disturb the fox

Letting them flow
You are with me
Under the Dragon’s
Watchful eye

You telling me Dragons are not real?  I have met a few and they are most certainly real.

Friday, 31 October 2014

Summer Fire ~ Autumn Mists

This is the second of the paired season poems.  It was written sequentially with the poems posted yesterday and completes the set.

Summer Fire ~ Autumn Mists  -  27 Oct 14

Summer fire
Burning afternoons sun ripe
Fruit soon wine
Drink the glory of summer
Remember warm days

Autumn mists
Soft tendrils wrapped
Drape the trees with ashen grey
Slow painted days remember
Evening comes too early

There may be other poems using a similar constructional format.

Thursday, 30 October 2014

Winter Sun ~ Spring Rain

This is the first of a pair of paired season poems.  The way they formed in my mind rather insisted that these two should be written together.

Winter Sun ~ Spring Rain  -  27 Oct 14

Winter sun
Soft spark of warmth
Between the hazy clouds
Melodies of enchantment
Play soft into the evening

Spring rain
Sings a gentle song
Strokes the fresh leaves
To make them shine
Gold of the coming year

I feel that the way these poems are linked gives each of them more power.

Wednesday, 29 October 2014

Dark Dawn

A little experiment in two-word lines with each word a single syllable, just to see how it feels.

Dark Dawn  -  24 Oct 14

Dark day
Cloud fall
Rain fall

Cloud rain
Touch ground
Dark sky

Morn came
No change
Still dark

Cloud walk
Wet clothes
Dream dry

Actually it feels good.

Tuesday, 28 October 2014

Rain Story

A hint of a sad Love song ~ one with sympathy.

Rain Story  -  24 Oct 14

The rain told her story
It had been listening
As she cried
Her tears mingled
With the raindrops
Sang a soft sad song
Duet for sweet and salt

Sympathy comes from often unexpected places.

Monday, 27 October 2014


This poem has two dates, the first saw the birth of the first stanza as I was attempting to go to sleep.  The second date, a month later, saw the completing two stanzas come into existence and I feel that the resultant form is rather satisfying.

Raven  -  23 Sep & 23 Oct 14

Black wings
Rook night
Fractured dream of nightmare
Hastened into the starless realm

Watches day
Dove flight
Broken nightmares shattered
Carried away into the sun

Wing whisper
Touch the Soul
Wraps warm dreams around
Takes us into the day

More than a hint of "limite surréaliste" in there too.

Sunday, 26 October 2014

Love Abides

This is a sort of Eternal Love song.

Love Abides  -  23 Oct 14

Within the mind’s vast
Empty halls
Where thoughts sing
Amidst the echoes
Lies a simple truth
Cherished through Eternity
Carried in every Love song
Held in every Heart
Love abides

Love does abide ~ without end.

Saturday, 25 October 2014

Dance Of Time

A song with a little sensuality and a touch of "limite surréaliste".

Dance Of Time  -  22 Oct 14

Stolen time
Gift of the stars
Dance to the music
Of the spheres
Stellar ballroom
Resounds to the melody
In whispers soft
Movement smooth
Time’s dance
Steals the moment
Plays it back
In memories

A blend of genres ~ I hope it works.

Dolphin Play

Thiis poem was inspired after my dear friend dani showed a Dolphin image on her blog.  It seemed really fitting that this poem should grow from that posting.

Dolphin Play  -  21 Oct 14

Gently moving waves
Play among them
Dive into bliss
Come with me
Slide through the water
Move against each other
Spiral into the deep
Fly into the Infinite

The blog page that inspired this poem is:
and the site dani runs is:
I thank her again for the honour of her post.

Joining Days

Another Love song, songs which never end.

Joining Days  -  20 Oct 14

Sometime between
Yesterday and tomorrow
We became joined
In ways we could
Never have imagined
Yesterday alone
Tomorrow our dreams
Today building
Forming our tomorrows

Love songs never end ~ like Love itself.

Decision Made

A suggestion from Spirit about decisions.

Decision Made  -  18 Oct 14

Is now the correct moment
To offer a kiss
To reach out and take her hand
To say the words
She has been longing to hear
Seize the moment
Now is always right
And so
The decision is made

Go for it.

Winter With Spring Waiting

Seeing the leaves and remembering how things change as the year revolves.

Winter With Spring Waiting  -  17 Oct 14

Beneath the layer
Of sodden brown
Fractured leaves
Moist earth
Remembers the life
Holds it close
Very soon
Spring will claim
The land
And open the seeds

Seasons turn.

Silent Witness

Inspired by the sight of a picture on Twitter.

Silent Witness  -  16 Oct 14

Silent witness
Under a starry sky
Stones whisper
But never tell
The secrets entrusted
Over all the years

The first two lines are the title of the picture.

Sunday, 19 October 2014

Muddy Rainbows

Another of the poems which were inspired by an observation of the weather.

Muddy Rainbows  -  15 Oct 14

Rain washed
Muddy rainbows
From the street
From careless cars
Night dark
Cloud dark
Rain pours filling streams
Claims the rainbows back
To shine again

Interesting how much inspiration comes from sight or hearing events in the outside world.

Fragments of my own discarded past, gathering dust somewhere.

Recollection  -  14 Oct 14

Gathering all the old
Dusty remembrances …
Sprig of white heather
Crumbling in the envelope
Perfume on a tee-shirt
From a dance with her
Long faded
Now just the smell of cloth

Put them all together
In a box
Tape it shut
Leave it on an unused shelf
Probably never to be seen
Not even by me

Look out of the door
New memories forming
With the rising sun

We probably all have these boxes somewhere.

The Chosen

The very best to be chosen by ~ a real honour.

The Chosen  -  13 Oct 14

In an instant
We knew
No turning back
Love had chosen us

Things we had said
Had done
Echoed through time
Love had heard

All Love asks
Is that we repeat
The words that called
Love to us

Greatfully accepting the honour.

Thursday, 16 October 2014

Sepia Memories

Some old thoughts gathering dust and buried in the past.

Sepia Memories  -  12 Oct 14

Old images
Autumn leaves scattered
Yellowed sepia tints
Like the memories
Faded beyond recall

Old albums
Filled with forgotten dreams
Hopes and wishes
Fading now

Old desk
With a new book ~ blank pages
Waiting to be filled
With all the new memories
Ready to be revealed

Everybody has these old memories which surface at random moments.

Teasing [Acrostic]

An acrostic from the realm of Love song.

Teasing [Acrostic]  -  12 Oct 14

Touching so very gently
Enticing with a glance
Asking for a kiss
Smiling with the whole body
Inviting ~ offering
Never denying ~ always
Giving Love

I did warn that there would be more acrostic poems to come.

Tuesday, 14 October 2014

Song Of Tomorrow

The Universe has sung.

Song Of Tomorrow  -  10 Oct 14

Soft sweet notes
Heard in the pre-echo
Of the morrow’s
The Universe
Has sung it to us
Now it is our turn
Deep within our Hearts
We hear and sing along
Accompany us
Into tomorrow

We have listened to the song and now we join in.

Monday, 13 October 2014

I Can See Me

Not sure what genre this poem fits into, I suspect that it is a kind of revelation episode.

I Can See Me  -  06 Oct 14

In the lake
Your reflection
Shining bright
Hiding in the stars
Wondering who you are
Stars holding us
What we are

I shall refrain from adding it to any genre.

Sunday, 12 October 2014

Three Words

Just a little Love song.

Three Words  -  05 Oct 14

And in our forevers
We have always known
Those simple little words
Which touch our Souls
Always known
Always remembered
The three words
That have taken us forward
Into our Eternity
I Love you

Little Love songs are often the most powerful and meaningful.

Saturday, 11 October 2014


A poem with just a hint of "limite surréaliste".

Circles  -  05 Oct 14

Touch us
Whisper to the sea
Can be lost
Whisper to the sky
We always know
Whisper forever

Sometimes I wonder where the inspiration comes for these poems.

Friday, 10 October 2014

Eternal Sea

A kind of double-layered Love song.

Eternal Sea  -  05 Oct 14

The only sea
Is the Eternal one
We both swim

We rest on the shore
In the sun
Holding hands

Cool breeze
Carries the words of the sea
To rest upon us

Come back my Loves
To swim again
In my depths

I think that is the best way to describe this poem, two distinct Love layers.

Giants Walking

Written yesterday and posted today because of witnessed events.

Giants Walking  -  08 Oct 14

Giants walking
In the afternoon
Children splash
Through puddles
Sending spray
Adults practice
Combat skills
Sparks from sword
Contacts fly
Others playing

I Love watching the weather.

Wednesday, 8 October 2014


I was made aware of someone who was afflicted with a nightmare and my mind created details and formed a poem from it.

Ghostmares  -  03 Oct 14

Woken from sleep
With unwanted memories
Black vultures
For you to succumb and
Let them take you
Into the darkness
Between wake and sleep
Where the ghostmares
Wait for you

I do not know what to add in the outro except that I am glad that these do not attack me.

Tuesday, 7 October 2014

Wandering Mind

This poem has elements of dreamscape, labyrinth walking and just a hint of Love song.

Wandering Mind  -  02 Oct 14

In the cave of night
Velvet dark caresses
Allows the mind to wander
And dreams to explore
While holding the scarlet thread
Which will lead me back to you

I rather like the effect that this blend brings out.

Monday, 6 October 2014

Walpurges Nacht

I kept seeing references to pumpkins and what was to be done with them at the end of this month.  Then thoughts of a Dennis Wheatley novel wandered through my mind and so this poem was birthed.

Walpurges  Nacht  -  02 Oct 14

For those who “play”
With Halloween
Be aware that
Just sometimes
It will come to bite you
Tear you from
Your places of comfort
Throw you into turmoil
All because you tempted
The fates
With play
And the fates
To play

I know that Walpurges Nacht is May eve but the feelings I got were fully valid for this period too.

Sunday, 5 October 2014


A Love song which can be heard deep within and everywhere too.

Connections  -  01 Oct 14

In those moments
When words are insufficient
And thoughts cannot be voiced
We have our connection
Our minds link
We can say
I Love you
And it is heard
As though we shouted
The words out loud

Can you hear?

Saturday, 4 October 2014

Lover Craving

A Love song with a slightly different flavour.

Lover Craving  -  29 Sep 14

Life fast
Rushes toward us
A Lover craving
The contact
An embrace
Desire calls
To make the special
Deep Love

Craving ~ Calling

Friday, 3 October 2014

Smokey Clouds

Another observation-driven poem, the images seen in early evening as the light started to change.

Smokey Clouds  -  29 Sep 14

Pretending to be smoke
Fanned across the sky
By the wings of birds
Sailing home to roost
Before the evening
Turns into night

Just watching from my office window.

Thursday, 2 October 2014


Another fairly simple Love song ~ if such a thing can be said.

Singing  -  28 Sep 14

Unexpected present
Opened carefully
I heard a gentle song
Words hidden in the melody
Felt rather than heard

You gave me you
Only asking for a smile
In return
I gave the smile
Gave the only other thing
I could give ~ me

The song may be simple but Love?

Wednesday, 1 October 2014


A Love song, no frills or extra flavourings, just a Love song.

We  -  27 Sep 14

There is no place
Where you are alone
Because I am always
With you

There is no place
Where I am alone
Because I always feel you
With me

In every place
We go we are always together
Bonded by our Love
Happy in our connection

There is nothing lke a Love song.
I get the feeling that I may have said that before.

Songs In The Afternoon

Audio observation ~ open your ears and listen with me.

Songs In The Afternoon  -  25 Sep 14

Singing in harmony
Rhythms persuasive

Echo across the valley
In misty afternoon sun
Voices heard clearly

Baritones, tenors
The voices I hear

Did you enjoy the song?

Monday, 29 September 2014

Midnight Dance

Just a little playful piece exploring a special dance.

Midnight Dance  -  24 Sep 14

Across the sand
In circles round
Beneath the moonless sky
Clothed in stars
Iridescent gems
To light our way
In the midnight dance

Dancing on the sand in starlight.

Sunday, 28 September 2014


This poem was inspired by the feeling that someone was looking deep within me.

Unmasked  -  29 Se 14

Like fire
Burned away my disguises
Tore the masks from my face
Showed me as I was
Read me
Like a book
What I wanted
What I was offering

I think she liked what she saw.

Saturday, 27 September 2014

Night Mists

Another poem which was birthed after seeing the mists at night.

Night Mists  -  21 Sep 14

Night wrapped in grey
Tendrils shroud the lamps
As night walks slowly
Into the town
Owls silent
In the dampened air
Hunters silent
In the mists

Little observations.

Friday, 26 September 2014


Another Love song with more than a hint of Lust song added in for interest.

Essences  -  20 Sep 14

Breathing you
Every moment
Taking you in
Feeling your essence
Wrapping me
In you
Seeing you
Golden nectar
For my eyes
Holding me with you
Touching you
Touching me

I hope you are enjoying these Loving Lusting offerings.

Thursday, 25 September 2014

You Touched Me [Acrostic]

Another Love song, Lust song, Acrostic.  I Love mixing my genres.

You Touched Me [Acrostic]  -  19 Sep 14

Your secret touch
Overwhelmed me

Taking me to new levels
Over anything I have felt
Unlimited Love flows
Changing the way I feel
Holding me in your arms
Embracing me raising


There will be more acrostic poems before too long.

Wednesday, 24 September 2014


A special Love song just because . . .

Defining  -  18 Sep 14

Soft satin hues
Beautiful blues
Are you in my mind

Subtle fragrance
Honeysuckle smooth
Reminds me of you

Music in my mind
Plays the dance
That is you ~ for me

These things and more
Claim to define you ~ impossible
Because you are unique

Impossible to define YOU.

Wind Songs

Lying in bed about to enter sleep, I listened to the wind and watched the images which were conjured up by the sounds I heard.

Wind Songs  -  17 Sep 14

Wind telling his tales
Listen to me
I am the rain
Pouring through the leaves
Bringing water to the Earth
Listen to me
I am the sea
Thundering against the coast
Singing with the rocks
Listen to me
I am the spirits
Rattling your window
Come to say hello
Listen to me
I am the Earth’s Soul
Whispering your name

Just a little hint of a Love song here too.

Monday, 22 September 2014

Sweet Thoughts

Another "thoughts" poem, quite self explanatory I thnik.

Sweet Thoughts  -  16 Sep 14

Sweet thoughts
Honey infused fills me
Brings you into my world
Again and again
Holding the memories of
What will be
More powerful
Than anything from my
What was

At least my thoughts say it is fully explained.

Sunday, 21 September 2014

Crystal Thoughts

A little poem with a hint of "limite surréaliste" to it.

Crystal Thoughts  -  16 Sep 14

Open eyes
Amethyst light
Open mind
Colour flows

In the edge of your vision
Corner of your eye
Veiled by a simple tear
Wrapped by your thoughts

Moments in the Eternal day
Riding crystal visions
Into the light
Amethyst shows

There seems to be an Amethyst theme appearing in some of my poems recently.

Saturday, 20 September 2014

Night Wind

A little nocturnal Love song.

Night Wind  -  14 Sep 14

Wind in the night
Branches carry
The happy sighs
From you to me
We enter our dream
To share the thoughts
Of all our futures

Listen to the sighs.

Friday, 19 September 2014


Personal experience ~ standing at the window without
a tee-shirt and ...

Breeze  -  13 Sep 14

Runs fingers
Through my hair
Across my skin
Goosebumps chasing
Triggers thoughts
Memories of a future
Wishing it was you

Lovely thoughts passing through my mind and some of them lingered.

Thursday, 18 September 2014

Gates Of Dream

With elements of at least three genres, I present this poem.

Gates Of Dream  -  13 Sep 14

Gentle touches
Exploring caresses
Opening the gates
Letting the dreams slip
Out to play

Dreams play
In unexpected ways
Once the gates open
Touches and caresses
Fire the play

Play the dream game
Allow it to take you
Into new places
New sensations
Past the gate

See you by the gates and we can play.

Seven Veils

Observed dances in the evening.

Seven Veils  -  10 Sep 14

Sun dancing on my wall
Seven veils
With the trees
Flicker glimpses
Dance across the sky

Farewell dance of the day
Last veil falls
Moon takes the stage
Whirls through the evening
Leaving stars in her wake

Light play.

Tuesday, 16 September 2014

Wandering I

This poem has a sense of otherwhen-ness about it, with an essence of "The Farewell Fragments" too.
It is also clearly another Love song.

Wandering I  -  09 Sep 14

She watched
As I walked across the sands
In my thoughts
I wandering
In the pale light of the moons
My eyes drawn
To the distant lamps
Of the ships
Across the shimmering sea
And a tear fell

Still watching
She knew
Said come home
You have wandered
Too long my Love
It is time to return
To me

A couple of little points ~ the word "moons" is not a typo and in the title that is a capital "I" and not a Roman "one".

Monday, 15 September 2014

Smile From When

The smile which comes when your smile is seen.

Smile From When  -  07 Sep 14

In an opening
Between then and when
A smile seen
Light of Love shines
From the smile which covers
Your whole face
Illuminates my life
With your Love

Another Love song ~ were you expecting something else?

Sunday, 14 September 2014


This poem was born on one of those afternoons when mind and body really did not want to do anything but sleep.

Tired  -  06 Sep 14

Eyes want to close
Brain shuts down
Time passes
Only indication
Hands on the clock
Somewhere different

These usually happen on hot summer days ~ not in September.

Saturday, 13 September 2014

Secret Imagination

Though this poem has a dual date only the title appeared on the first day.  I called it up to prepare it for posting and realised that none of the actual poem existed.  In that moment the poem formed and I decided that I would post it today anyway.

Secret Imagination  -  05 & 11 Sep 14

Playing with thoughts
Allowing them to flow
Gathering you up in my arms
Taking you on a special journey
To a place only we can know

A place where touches build
On touches
Whispers grow into words
Our desires flourish and
We build them into reality

I suppose this is a mild Lust song.

Friday, 12 September 2014

Dragon Moon

This poem does not seem to fit into any of the usual categories ~ so here it stands.

Dragon Moon  -  06 Sep 14

Once upon a time
Ancient stories once started
To draw you in
I have been there
And under a full Moon
The Dragons walked
Danced their lives
Danced their Loves
As the Moon kept them company
Watched and smiled
As the Dragons flew
Danced with the Moon

A fairy tale in feel but so much more.

Thursday, 11 September 2014

Fractured Day

A little poem with a hint of "limite surréaliste" to add a little spice.

Fractured Day  -  04 Sep !4

Light in the cave of night
Echoes from the fractured day
Stirs the dust and sets it free
Cracks on the mirror
Multiple images
Each one a memory
Of a moment
From the day
Fractures always whole
Hold the day
In the dark
Waiting for the dawn

Perhaps spice is not really the correct word but I feel that it is more interesting for it.

Wednesday, 10 September 2014

Love Speaks

Listening to the words that can always be heard but often not consciously.

Love Speaks  -  03 Sep 14

That interesting feeling
When you know
That everything is going
The way you want
And all your dreams and hopes
Are coming true

Soul speaks to Soul
Using the same language
That Love speaks
Echoes travel down
And all we hear is
Love speaks

Usualy just a whisper but sometimes a shout to wake you.

Tuesday, 9 September 2014


Sometimes the world can be seen in ways that are invisible to other people.

Artistry  -  02 Sep 14

Lines of colour
Sketched across cloud
Across the ground
With pencil tip
Painting of the day
And all our lives

I am honoured to be shown the different ways to see things.

Monday, 8 September 2014


This was actually written on the first of the month but what I felt in the air seemed to be setting the weather mood for the month.

September  -  01 Sep 14

September winds
Chill and wrapping around
The sun
Taking his warmth

Leaves beginning to fall
Never changing colour
To something special
Just crispy brown fragments

Tomorrow’s sun
Will not see the leaves
Wind will tidy them away
Ready for the next cascade

Hoping that I am wrong about this weather forecast.

And In My Dreams

This poem was triggered by seeing an almost subliminal image of a tweet on the Twitter stream where someone said something about hunting in the woods, my mind took over and created this.

And In My Dreams  -  30 Aug 14

Through ancient woods
I wander
With a purpose
I hunt
Looking for the place
My dreams were hatched

In a hidden glade
I rest
Surrounded by the woven thoughts
I feel
And in my dreams I find
Where you came into them

This is also a gentle Love song.

Saturday, 6 September 2014

I Hear You [Acronym Variant]

This poem started out being an alliterative work but it asked to be changed to something different and so this acronym variant was born.

I Hear You [Acronym Variant]  -  29 Aug 14

In the silence
I hear your
Intimate thoughts directed
Into me

Holding a special thought
Even as we connect
Amethyst images fill
Random spaces in our minds

Yesterday is but a dream
Onward we shall go into
Unexplored worlds

I think that it works rather well.

Friday, 5 September 2014

Dreams Fly

Now just a little Love song.

Dreams Fly  -  29 Aug 14

Come fly with me
Reach for the stars
Our dreams can grow
Watch them fly
Lead us into Infinity

When I said little ~ I meant little.

Thursday, 4 September 2014


Another little Love song.

Path  -  28 Aug 14

A well-worn path
I have walked there
So many times
On dark days
Or bright Moonlit nights
I know the path well
For you
Are at the end

The simple statement is often the best, this is a little Love song.

Wednesday, 3 September 2014

Between Words

I am not able to get away from Love songs ~ actually I am happy with this so, off we go with another one.

Between Words  -  27 Aug 14

In the space between words
You hold me as we dance
I hold you in the silence
We created for us
Between the words
Our voices are loud
In the silence and we hear
The most important words
That we never have to say
Because we already know them

I just Love, Love songs.

Tuesday, 2 September 2014

Star Shadows

Another poem in the "limite surréaliste" sequence ~ I cannot think of any  other way to describe this.

Star Shadows  -  25 Aug 14

In the night
Star shadows
Coloured crystals
Reflect in our eyes
Flowers painted
On the sky
In the planters
Shadows swallow
The sun
As he whispers
To the Moon

I find it quite fascinating how these poems will flow, seemingly out of "nowhere" and into my mind ... or should that be the other way round?

Monday, 1 September 2014

The Garden

An early morning Love song ~ one to be felt as well as read.

The Garden  -  26 Aug 14

Cool tendrils
Dawn mist
Caresses the trees
Wraps us in her web
In the garden
We held each other
In the warmth
Of our Love
When the sun
Covered us
With his warmth
We still held
Each other
As we explored
The garden

Can you taste the dawn mist?

Sunday, 31 August 2014

Story In Flowers

This is a sort of "found Love song" ~ you will understand what I mean when you read it.

Story In Flowers  -  24 Aug 14

Ancient flowers
Pressed between the pages
Of a forgotten book
Telling a Love story
Of two Lovers
Who were
But are no more

Lost story
Inscribed in pencil
Between the petals
No names
Just words
You ~ Me

Maybe this was we in a previous life.

Saturday, 30 August 2014

Cold Moon

This seems a strange poem to write in August but it has been unusually cold recently ~ so I offer this.

Cold Moon  -  23 Aug 14

Chill wind
Wraps her icy fingers
Around the sliver
Of the Old Moon
Frost prepares
His cold dance
To leave his
Crystalline footprints
In the dark
And the wind
Still blows cold
Out of a cloudless sky

Another weather inspired poem.

Friday, 29 August 2014

Unique [Acrostic]

Playing with words again in an acrostic ~ this one with a special message.

Unique [Acrostic]  -  21 Aug 14

Unequalled in all the Universes
No one else can match your
Individuality ~ I have
Quested across time
Until I found you

For that special one.

Thursday, 28 August 2014

Quest In Time

A little Love song with a simple statement.

Quest In Time  -  21 Aug 14

Looking for you
All through my lives
And through the ages
I knew
One day I would find you
And I would be complete

Completion ~ best thing there is.

Wednesday, 27 August 2014


A Love song with more than a hint of Lust song.

Smiles  -  20 Aug 14

Wicked twinkle
Lips quivering
With anticipation
Your smile grew
Infected me
So we locked
Our smiles

I rather like these combination songs.

Tuesday, 26 August 2014

Remember Again

A Love song with secret depths.

Remember Again  -  19 Aug 14

Taste of a rose
Petals slowly unfurling
Releasing perfume
Reminds me of you

Taste of you
Your lips inviting
Eyes hold me
Fire the memory

In those shared moments
I shall remember again
Memories remain fresh
Because ~ YOU

Remembering ... happy sigh.

Monday, 25 August 2014

Eternal Love

Another Love song ~ better read than explained methinks.

Eternal Love  -  17 Aug 14

Two Souls joined
Made an agreement

Together again
Forever and always
In Love

Surrounded by candles
Listening to wind and ocean
Like us

No such thing
For two Souls
In Love

Interesting how these poems just seem to flow and trancend time.

Sunday, 24 August 2014

Ribbon Moon

Another offering in the Five Thousand Miles sequence of poems.

Ribbon Moon  -  16 Aug 14

Ribbon Moon
Painted from horizon
To me
Across the waves

I watch the shimmering
Ribbon as it dances
For me
Under the Moon glow sky

Listening I hear the words
Spoken to me ~ this is your path
Take it and you can travel the
Five thousand miles

You don't think I am getting obsessed with Five Thousand Miles ~ do you?

Saturday, 23 August 2014

Dance To The Moon

A little song just to celebrate Love.

Dance To The Moon  -  16 Aug 14

The velvet Moons of seasons past
Slumber in our memories
Phantom images of tides
Frozen in a land-locked sea

We had danced through nights
When the music had stopped
We continued and kept the rhythm
Flowing for our pleasure

Music of the spheres played on
Into our Eternity taking our steps
From now to forever
Bliss Eternal

Dance on Lover.

Friday, 22 August 2014

Five Thousand Whispers

Another in the Five Thousand Miles series with a little twist.

Five Thousand Whispers  -  16 Aug 14

I felt you
Thinking about me
Across the miles
Your words clear
In my mind
Five thousand miles
Is but a whisper away
Our whispers
We always hear

Though the message of the poem is still clear.

Thursday, 21 August 2014

Chill Sun

An evening poem with a hint of Love song in there.

Chill Sun  -  14 Aug 14

Layer upon layer
Cloud wrapped around
Chill sun
Washed with random rain
Light breeze
Rattles the window
Invites my eyes
Looking at the sun
In his warm cloak

Evening draws around us
Colours the cloak
Rich orange
First colour of night

Just a hint but getting warm is important.

This is post number 1000 to Dolphin Muse.

Wednesday, 20 August 2014

No Boundaries

A declaration about play-space.

No Boundaries  -  13 Aug 14

No boundaries
Open flight over uncharted
In dream space
We drew for ourselves
Creating a place
Where we could play
Without boundaries

The only way to play.

Tuesday, 19 August 2014

Forgive Me

This poem asked to be written, I have no real idea where it came from but it is not from my life at the moment.

Forgive Me  -  12 Aug 14

I dared to reach out
Stretched my hand to you
Offered friendship and more
You turned away
Did not even bother
To answer my words
My prayers
So I turned inside
Wrapped my Heart
In a tear-stained cloth
And pretended
That I did not care
Forgive me

Perhaps the origin will become clear at some point.

Monday, 18 August 2014

Queen's Moon

A gentle Love song.

Queen's Moon  -  12 Aug 14

Delicately touching
The hands of the Lady
Smoothes my wrinkled brow
Her subtle beauty
Wrapped in Moonlight
Edged in silver
Lights the night
Lights the day
Lights my life

I was going to refer to this poem as a delicate Love song.

Sunday, 17 August 2014

Water Theme

Playing with the concept and remembering.

Water Theme  -  11 Aug 14

Between the showers
Dodge the drops
Walking beside the river
To where
Water pours free

Ocean’s roar
Carried by the wind
Wakes all five senses
Reminds the body
Of what we are
Where home lies

Another journey to collect drinking water inspired this poem.

Open Messages

Another Love  song with an invitation.

Open Message  -  09 Aug  14

An open book
On the table
Words indicated
With a paper marker
I Love you

An open door
Near the table
Unspoken words
Need not be said
Come, see me

How a book and a door can be used to convey a message and an invitation.

Candlelight [Acrostic]

Playing with words again in another acrostic.

Candlelight [Acrostic]  -  08 Aug 14

Crystal lit
Amber incense drifts
Now fills my thoughts
Dreaming with you
Lifts me
Light from candles
Illuminates our Hearts
Gives meaning
Heightens my awareness of your
True beauty

One of many and more to come, I should think.

Continuous Movement

A Love song with which to dance along.

Continuous Movement  -  07 Aug 14

Continuous movement
Stars dancing
Æon long pirouette
Moves us
Holding hands to guide
Intricate steps
Smiles of encouragement
Sparkles of Love
Within our eyes
We dance

Feel the movement.

Tasting You

A Lust song and a Love song all mixed into one.

Tasting You  -  06 Aug 14

A taste of you
Stronger than any wine
Or spirits
Sipped slowly
From your cup
Never leaves a hangover
Always intoxicating
Brings nothing but Joy
With Love

A drink I would happily take.

Moon Dark Ocean

A song which grew at the time of the New Moon.

Moon Dark Ocean  -  05 Aug 14

Looking out
Over the waves
Watching the stars
Dance to the music
Played through
The Universes
In dark of day
Dark of night
The dance goes on
Dark Moon
Hides with the sun
Allows the ocean to shine

A time of darkness can, paradoxically, be a time of clarity.

Voices Whisper

A Love song partially influenced by listening to the weather.

Voices Whisper  -  05 Aug 14

Voices whisper
In a moist night
Raindrops mask the words
Night colours them
Stars hide behind cloud

Rain across the roof
Mimics voices
Heard through an open window
We snuggle and listen

In the whispering dark
We whisper
Share our Love
With words
Sing along with the rain

Snuggling while listening to the rain ~ Lovely.

Birth Of Love

Another little Love song from an unexpected place.

Birth Of Love  -  03 Aug 14

Touching us
Deep within
Heart feeling

We knew
Beyond words
Outside senses

Open hands
Sharing Love
Sharing us

Inspired in part by this quote seen on Love Quotes on Twitter, [@ and run the words together]

Love is not about sex, going on fancy dates, or showing off. It's about being with a person who makes you happy in a way nobody else can.

Sweet Night

A little Love song under the stars.

Sweet Night  -  02 Aug 14

Transformation of night
Into a place
Of safety and security
Where we can meet
And talk
And Love

Embrace the night
Know that it is home
Security under the stars
They watch when we
Are together
In Love

All Love stories are watched by the stars.

Playing with colours in dreams and elsewhere.

Spinning  -  01 Aug 14

Spinning around
Between the images
Of the dreams
Painted on sand
In colours
Never imagined
Woven into cloth
Worn by angels
As they dance
Across the sand
And in the forests
Of night
The colours sing

The colours can sing ~ listen.

Juicy Thoughts

Another Love song with some Lust stirred in to give a little added flavour.

Juicy Thoughts  -  01 Aug 14

Juicy thoughts
Squeezed gently
To extract the nectar
Tongue curled
Around the drops
None shall be wasted

Your nectar
Tempts me
Entices me
Fills me with
Your sweetness
Drunk with you

Spicy nectar ~ yum.

Dark Dreams

Sometimes playing with the dark dreams can be fun.

Dark Dreams  -  31 Jul 14

Shadows in the night
Darker than nightmares
We dance a dance of dream
Kiss the phantom Moon
Play the games
Chase the dark
Smile in the night

Playing helps understanding of what the dream is about.

Tuesday, 5 August 2014

Chant Of Moon Ocean

A Love song with a hint of "limite surréaliste" to add a little spice.

Chant Of Moon Ocean  -  30 Jul 14

Tickle touch
Hands gently gliding
On skin
Dreaming in the wake
Moon leaves across
Ocean chanting
Words shape thoughts
Moon boat sails
Carry more forms
Into our lives
Blue song night sky
Moon holds the memory
Ocean shares
Their hands touch
Tickles begin

Spice to warm things up just a little.

Dream Building [Acrostic]

The thought came and searched around for a way to express itself.

Dream Building [Acrostic]  -  28 Jul 14

Days drift by ~ call out to night
Reaching into memories
Even as we try to create
Ample ideas which we know
May grow into the things we want

Building the forms
Under which we will live
Infinite playground
Love is the architect
Dream the tools
Imagination where it grows
Now let us take flight

It found a good way and settled down ~ to grow.

Secret Message

The secret messages only heard by the two who are singing a Love song.

Secret Message  -  27 Jul 14

No one else knew
We talked to each other
Voices kept low
Not a whisper
Silence was louder
In our Hearts
We heard the thoughts
Felt the energy
In the secret message
Three words were clear
I Love you

Another Love song ~ they just seem to want to form.

Wind Wishes

Another in the expanding "five thousand mile" sequence of poems.

Wind Wishes  -  26 Jul 14

Wind carries wishes
Dreams open
Fullness of the thought
Wishes carry me
Over time and distance
Five thousand miles
I carry the dream
Spark in the life and Love
She reaches for the dream
We share the dream
Fed by the wind
Love takes flight

I really like the way this series is developing.

Invitation To Play

Some interesting thoughts were passing through my mind as this poem formed and as I re-read it now the thoughts flow back.

Invitation To Play  -  25 Jul 14

Looking up
The stars look down
Watch us
We call our greeting
To the stars
Invite them
To join our dance
Our play

A Lovely dance and game.

Thursday, 31 July 2014

Two Souls

Another of the "five thousand miles" sequence of Love songs.

Two Souls  ~  24 Jul 14

Five thousand miles
A tiny step
When two Souls
Are already together

Minds linked
Thoughts complete
With sentences finished
By the other ~ with a smile

Five thousand miles
Of whispers
Heard clearly as lips
Pressed against ears

Lips pressed
Kisses shared
Miles melt away
To nothing

I like where this series seems to be going.

Heart Whispers

Whispers tell me things ...

Heart Whispers  -  23 Jul 14

I listen to the whispers
In my Heart
They are sweet
They tell me about you
Remind me
~ Even though I need
No reminding ~
Of why
I Love you

The voices in my head are nice voices.

Ice Swan

A Love song with a special theme, subtle yet totally clear.

Ice Swan  -  23 Jul 14

Ice swan carved
Revealing a Heart
Your warmed it
Kissed it
Kissed me

Memory of the swan
Held in the water
Drinking memories
Holding them within us
Yet setting them free
Live on

We hold the swan
In us
We share the Love
As we swim

I think it is clear, at least.

Song Of The River

Collecting the drinking water recently, I walked beside the stream for a short while and was aware of all the sounds made by the river and the birdsong all around.

Song Of The River  -  21 Jul 14

Listen to the music
Song of the river
In a moment
Of quiet awareness
Sound of water
Dancing over rocks
Kissing tree roots
Inviting birds
To add the high notes

A Lovely experience on a Lovely day.

Sunday, 27 July 2014

Feelings Shared

Love always tastes better when shared.

Feelings Shared  -  21 Jul 14

I remember
You said to me
Just after you
Heard me say
These words
I Love you
The warm glow
You fired in me
Just like the feelings
You told me
You felt
The same
Repeated the words
To me

Another Love song and this one tastes good.

Saturday, 26 July 2014


A Lust song in the guise of a chess game.

Opening  -  18 Jul 14

Gambit ~ first moves
Reaching for you
Letting my hands wander
Feeling the power of
Our Love
Offering a kiss
To start the game
The moves ahead
All of them
Involve you

The opening gambit starts the game and suggests where following moves will happen.

Song of the wind, carrying the whispers of Love.

Windsong  -  17 Jul 14

Trees are sighing
Wind caresses the leaves
Sings softly


Singing for us
Bringing Love
Through our night


Whispering through the night.  I am listening.

Thursday, 24 July 2014

Wind Singer

This was inspired partially by the weather and partially by a remembered  poem of mine.

Wind Singer  -  15 Jul 14

Wind dancer
Moves to the music
She makes
Bells chime for her
Æolian harp plays softly
Wind singer
Sweetly forms the songs
Sings along
To the rhythm
From the trees
Wind whisperer
Carries the secret words
Spoken in Love
When only whispers
Can carry the meaning

I Love the way that seemingly random, unrelated things rise to offer something new.

Wednesday, 23 July 2014

Kisses Drifting

Another little variant on the Love song with just a little hint of sensuality added as a spice.

Kisses Drifting  -  14 Jul 14

Darkness takes the day
Away into the night
Leaves a trail of ideas
Like kisses
On bare arms
Tempting thoughts
Incitement to follow
Sensuous invitation
How can I refuse?
Joining hands
We walk into the dark

A little spice is always a good thing.

Tuesday, 22 July 2014


Being surrounded and submerged in Love.  Just one of the many feelings.

Ocean  -  13 Jul 14

Swimming in the ocean
Of your Love
Feeling you all around me
Cherishing you
Loving you
Drinking in your Love

Feeling the care
Gentle support
Love you give
Holding me

Drunk on the taste
Dreaming in your gentle waves

Floating in you

There are many feelings ~ this is just one of them.

Rosy Darkness

A Love song in the place where dream becomes reality.

Rosy Darkness  -  12 Jul 14

I close my eyes
In the rosy darkness
You watch me
I smiled at you
As the moment lingered
Becoming hours
Our Eternity

Hope you are not getting tired of seeing my Love songs.

Sunday, 20 July 2014


Watching and making contact, physically and spiritually.  This has got to be a good and fun idea.

Watching  -  09 Jul 14

Watching you
Seeing the secret smiles
That only we know
Those little messages
Silent whispers

Watching me
You see my fingers
Slowly wave on air
You feel the secret touch
Along your spine

We know what we think
How we feel
Knowing what our secrets
Really are

One of the best ways of communication.

Saturday, 19 July 2014

Sun Flight

Just a little Love song.

Sun Flight  -  09 Jul 14

Into the East
To meet the rising sun
Dawn rakes my dreams
Wraps them in a warm glow
Prepares them for flight
Takes them high
To show where the sun
Will set
To show where you wait
For my dreams
Where you wait
For me

Sometimes the simple ones are more interesting.

Promise But...

This was written on 17 Jul 14 and posted slightly out of sequence just to keep it relevant.

Promise But...  -  17 Jul 14

Sky getting dark
Promise of rain
Few drops fall
One roll of thunder
Empty promises

The offers made from the sky were not fulfilled.

Thursday, 17 July 2014

Cut Price Love Song

The first line shouted to be written with the intentional error in the middle because it set the tone for the whole poem.  Then the other “errors” crept in and it grew further.

Cut Price Love Song  -  08 Jul 14

Sing a song for sixpence
Pocket full of lies
The four and twenty
Blackbirds flew away
Before the start of day
The flowers you gave
Have wilted in my hand
The sweet Love song
I hoped for has turned sour

So, not really a Love song at all but one of the broken dreams.

Rainbow's End

Treasure at the end of the rainbow.

Rainbow's End  -  08 Jul 14

At the end of the rainbow
Lies a treasure
Which cannot be counted
Nor spent in any way
The value is incalculable
That treasure is

Another little Love song.

Tuesday, 15 July 2014


A Love song with a spinning energy to lift us.

Vortex  -  07 Jul 14

Round and round
Never decreasing circles
Vortex grows
You swept me up
Took me within you
For a ride
Took me within you
To show me
Where we are
We are where
The vortex touches
Our Hearts
Takes us on a ride

A ride like this can only be good and fun.

Monday, 14 July 2014


A subtle Love song but a Love song none the less.

Shapes  -  06 Jul 14

Slow-moving cloud
Painted in shades
Of sun and shadow
Shape of the sky
Playing with light

In the sky
You dance for me
Your movement
Builds the shape
Of Love

Slow-moving song
We dance together
In the shape of night
Between the stars
We glide

Shape of the dance.

Sunday, 13 July 2014


A Love song which looks like it wants to become something more.

Tonight  -  05 Jul 14

I heard the whisper
Little secret thoughts
Passed between us
In the night
Suggestions for what
We want to create
Ideas of how to play
The next level
Of our game
Soft kisses
Getting warmer
Whispers getting louder
As play becomes
More enjoyable

It wants to be a Lust song perhaps.

Afternoon Massage

This poem is a little out of order, time-wise, but I felt that it was worth breaking my rule for this one.
After the near-Freudian slip in "Afternoon Message" I was inspired to write the sequel and post it today.

Afternoon Massage  -  10 Jul 14

Fingertips wandering
Fleetingly passing across
Soft skin
Goosebumps chasing
Dancing around where
Fingers pause
Then the hands explore
Sensuous stroking

Bit of a Lust song too.
Hope you find it was worth my effort.

Friday, 11 July 2014

Afternoon Message

A little Freudian slip ~ I was just preparing the title for this post and nearly typed "Afternoon Massage" ~ that would have made an interesting poem methinks.

Afternoon Message  -  03 Jul 14

In your afternoon
I whisper
Little words of Love
I let the wind
Carry them to you

Perhaps the alternate version would make a good poem ~ I shall work on this and see.

Thursday, 10 July 2014


Yes ~ another Love song.

Desires  -  02 Jul 14

I wanted everything
It was a stuck recording
Of want want want

Then when I discovered you
I realised
All I really wanted
All I really needed … was


Almost verging on the Lust song area too.

Wednesday, 9 July 2014


The light calling me to you.

Beacon  -  01 Jul 14

The brightest star
Shines in your sky
Guiding me
Along a road
Lined with candles
Making sure
I follow the way
To you

I am always watching the light.

Forgotten Moments

We all have those times when a fragment of a memory wanders through our minds, sometimes they speak rather loudly to try to get our attention.

Forgotten Moments  - 30 Jun 14

Forgotten moments
Hinted by a sudden thought
Wondering where
It came from
Wondering where
They went
Transient thoughts
Fade before the memories do
Leaving the memories
Though still whispering

Usually these thoughts can be ignored.  Sometimes they are just too loud.

Song Of Freedom

A Love song about the beginnings of a journey.

Song Of Freedom  -  29 Jun 14

The sands of time
Flow silently through
Our fingers
My whispers in your mind
Sing a gentle song
Of freedom
Let us go and see
Where the sands take us

Wonder where the sands will lead.

Sunday, 6 July 2014

Night Whispers

Sing a song of whispers ~ weave them into a Love song.

Night Whispers  -  29 Jun 14

Warm night
Secret whispers
Never disturbing the quiet
Night spirits cannot hear us
As we plan our dream

Nightbirds sing
They guess our plan
Tease us
Threaten to tell
Sing on nightbirds

Maybe that should be a Lust song ~ or at least the beginnings of one.

Saturday, 5 July 2014


Building a special home with a Loved one, dreams as yet but...

Dreamcastles  -  27 Jun 14

Sharing ideas
Growing our home
In the realms
Of dream beyond now
Landscapes wrap around
Vistas open
Room by room
The castle grows

Funny how the spellchecker accepts sandcastles but not dreamcastles.

Friday, 4 July 2014

We Dance

A call to dance from a lot of different places.

We Dance  -  27 Jun 14

Rain dance
Across a cloudy sky
Sun dance
Between the showers
Moon dance
Dreaming in the night
We dance
Everywhere we can hear
The music of our dance
Played by our Souls

Stepping out to join in the dance together.

Thursday, 3 July 2014

I Will Find You

A Love song with an element of science fiction ~ for a change.

I Will Find You  -  26 Jun 14

I will find you
Even when you hide
On other planets
Beneath the rainbow rings
Of alien worlds
Secret places
Hidden in another land
I shall look
And I shall find you
To show you my Love

Re-reading it now, there is a certain creepyness to this poem.

Wednesday, 2 July 2014

Still Dreams

Yet another sweet Love song.

Still Dreams  -  26 Jun 14

Your Heart and mine
Have been together
Through all our Eternities
And when our dreams
Are still
In the night
I wait for you to return
To my side

A lot of these little Love songs are filled with longing, somehow making them more poignant.

Tuesday, 1 July 2014

Sweet Thief

Another little Love song.

Sweet Thief  -  26 Jun 14

You stole my Heart
In the night
Sweet thief
You left me
With a hint of perfume
And your Heart
A Loving present
To show
That in the exchange
We shall share the dream

Tender thievery.

Songs Of Love

These really are "Songs" there are four here for your reading pleasure.
The first stanza is a Senryū, the second is a Gogyohka, the third is an Acrostic and the last is a “modern Haikū”

Songs Of Love  -  25 Jun 14

Single rose petal
Fairy boat sails on the stream
Takes my Heart to you

You sing the harmony
I sing the counterpoint
Our world filled with music
As we take the melody
Beyond expectations

Hearing your whisper
Every second I am near
Always telling of your Love
Reaching into me
Touching me deeply


I think the structure works rather well.
