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 Together
Love the way these form from little images and thoughts.
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
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.
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
Kisses Sweetest keys To unlock Hearts Open them to Love The greatest gift Given freely Kisses On hands Gentle neck nuzzles Raise the temperature now Passion burn starting Firing our Kisses
She used words to me Words that nobody Had ever spoken to me Before 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 Love
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
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
Ancient doors reflect the beauty
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
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
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
You visited me In my sleep Gently entered my dream Smiled Reached out Took me by my hand Leaned forward Whispered the words To enchant me Hold me to you Forever There was no need For I was already Yours Forever
I Love these combination songs where the elements of Love and Lust can be found in varying peoportions.
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 Beauty
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
Raven Black wings Rook night Fractured dream of nightmare Hastened into the starless realm
Raven Watches day Dove flight Broken nightmares shattered Carried away into the sun
Raven Wing whisper Touch the Soul Wraps warm dreams around Takes us into the day
More than a hint of "limite surréaliste" in there too.
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 Sensuous Serpentine Time’s dance Steals the moment Plays it back In memories
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 Sometimes 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 Like To play
I know that Walpurges Nacht is May eve but the feelings I got were fully valid for this period too.
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
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
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 little poem with a hint of "limite surréaliste" to add a little spice.
Fractured Day - 04 Sep !4
Light in the cave of night Illuminates 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.
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
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
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 But 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.
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
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 Understood In the secret message Three words were clear I Love you
Another Love song ~ they just seem to want to form.
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
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.
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
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
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.
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 Together
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
Whispers getting louder
As play becomes
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
Fleetingly passing across
Dancing around where
Then the hands explore
Bit of a Lust song too.
Hope you find it was worth my effort.
