Spring [Haikū]

Night ~ hearing the wind and rain out of thick cloud ~ getting the news that large parts of the UK are cloud free and most areas can see the Northern Lights ~ I sit and dream with my eyes open

Spring [Haikū]  -  28 Feb 14

Haru no yume
Trees wake from their slumbering
Buds splitting open

Haru no yume = dream in spring

Spring ~ hah!

Inspired by a sighting at around 06:00 as I looked out at the world.

Venus  -  26 Feb 14

Hint of colour
In the eastern sky
Crone’s bow pointed
At the point of sunrise
Watched over
By Venus in her dawn robe

Hint of light
In my room
Allows me to see your form
I smile as I watch
You gently breathe
Spring air in the night

Venus and the Moon playing hide and seek among small scattered clouds before dawn.

Kisses In The Night

A rather special little Love song, came to me in the early hours and really flowed.

Kisses In The Night  -  26 Feb 14

Time with you
Never ending
Always filled with Love

A thorn-less rose
Offers petals of Love
Scattered on our bed

Night wraps us
On our bed of rose
Tenderly holding

Fire filled kisses
In the night ignite
Passions of us

Gives a warm fuzzy glow.

Old Songs Re-sung

The first line came into my mind and refused to let go, so I built the Love song from it.

Old Songs Re-sung

The songs of Babylon
Heard so many years ago
Now resound again
In our Hearts

We danced again
To the songs of Love
That are always sung
In our Hearts

Wrapped together in our Love
Holding each other close
Always dancing
In our Hearts 

So ~ another Love song enters these posts.

Just another little Love song.

Pretending  -  24 Feb 14

In the soft afternoon sun
I wait
Listening for your voice
To be carried to me
On the gentle breeze

Whispers on the wind
Pretend to be you
But I know your voice
And I know your words
For they are written in my Heart

In the secret silence
Of our times
We talk so no one can hear us
No need for pretence
We have the truth of Love

I really Love writing Love songs.

The Singer And The Muse [Re-impassioned]

This new poem grew fairly quickly and interrupted what I was watching.  It insisted that it was written and finished without any interruptions getting in the way.

It was nearly complete when I realised that it was a piece which complimented and extended an old poem of mine so I have included that one too.

The Singer And The Muse  -  22 Feb 14

In a forest clearing
An ancient cottage stands
There my true Love lies
Waiting …
… Waiting

From the Ocean depths
I call to her ~ ask her to come
To be with me
Yearning …
… Yearning

I sing to my Muse ~ she answers
Fingers touch stroking playing
The keys of our Love
Growing …
… Growing

The Singer And The Muse
[The Original Version]

A broken melody
Charméd forth by fingers idly touching …
A key depressed

The Singer and the Muse join hands
A hummingbird flies
A sweet song in a minor key
Brings tears to ancient eyes

And deep within a hidden valley
A fountain plays
Far from the sight and sign of man

When I can recall the date when this first version was written I shall insert it here.

I guess that these are both "limite surréaliste" and Love songs too.

This is a Love song with a different edge to it.  It grew rather unexpectedly in the hour before midnight.

Empty  -  21 Feb 14

For too long
Hopes and desires
Had to be laid aside
Gathering dust

Came into my life
We realised
We both needed filling
Our lives and Hearts
Open to each other

We held each other
Shared our warmth
In ways that can never be told
Our secret
We are within each other

It works, I feel, in so many different ways.

Undreamed [Acrostic]

I have not created an acrostic for a while ~ so ... here goes.

Undreamed [Acrostic]  -  21 Feb 14

Under satin skies
Nothing can not be thought
Does imagination form
Round the secret worlds
Among the ways we want
Moments always moving
Endlessly for us
Dreams coming true

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

Welcome Flame

In the early hours ... sounds really familiar ~ this poem grew from some pleasant thoughts.

Welcome Flame  -  20 Feb 14

Warm feelings
We reached for each other
Set the night on fire
Welcome flame
Embracing the heat
Passion builds
Ignites our needs

The flame of Passion.

What To Do

Another little Love song adding a few details to how we want things to progress.

What To Do  -  18 Feb 14

Outlined in ink
With ideas highlighted
With Love ♥
Suggestions for times
To come
Made clear

Those thoughts
Outlined in how we want
To play them
Highlighted with a kiss
Underlined with a smile
Secret notebook

Perhaps a little "To do" list.

Seeing someone as they really are and knowing that they can see you in your real truth.

Sometimes  -  17 Feb 14

When I watch you
Just sometimes
I become aware of
The real you
In those moments
I know
That sometimes
You are seeing
The real me
By the words
Of fiction

Lovely to see reality.

Crystal Starlight

A love song with a lot more than just a little bit of "limite surréaliste".  It just feels good to me.

Crystal Starlight  -  16 Feb 14

Crystal words shine
Open our eyes
Enchant the mystery
Wrap it round us
Shape the starlight
Into you so I can see
And feel the magic
Of the Love of you

I Love the effect of what surreal touches can give to my poems.

Another little Love song, this time inspired by a sentence in a conversation.

Exchanges  -  16 Feb 14

You gave me your Heart
Told me
I could do with it what I will

I took you at your word
And just
Gave you my Heart

Held now in a grip
Of feather
Close in Love

And in that moment of fire
We knew
We could never be apart

Interesting how just a few words can form the way a poem develops.

Another Love song, this time rather far reaching.

Realities  -  15 Feb 14

Realities of us
We have danced
Sung our songs
Always returned
To our Love
Never left
Our Love
In all our

This poem grew largely as a response to the day ~ 14 February ~ and all it conventionally represents.

Valentine  -  14 Feb 14

When the thoughts
Of Love
Became clear
The saint had no idea
Where it would take
You and me

All he could do was
Smile and offer
His blessing

Cupid’s arrows unneeded

Whatever your views ~ happy day everyone.

Full Moon Playing

A little poem inspired in part by the weather and with just a hint of "limite surréaliste" to spice it up a bit.

Full Moon Playing  -  12 Feb 14

Full Moon
Playing in the galloping cloud
Throwing hail
Against my window
Then some rain
To wash the ice away

Moon smiles
Cloud flickers
Plays a tune on the window
To encourage
The Moon in her dance
Skirts flying

Wind and rain here with hurricane force winds in Wales and Scotland.

Flying Together

A curious little poem, I had to tease it into shape before it felt right.  I am not going to mess with it further in case it becomes stale and lifeless.

Flying Together  -  11 Feb 14

We have been together
Æons kissing
The eternal web of time
Holds us before we move
Before we launch
Into Infinity
Together we shall fly
My Heart lies with yours
Wherever you go
I fly too

Another little Love song.

Moon Dancing

A little Love song which grew from thoughts in the night.

Moon Dancing  -  11 Feb 14

Dancing under
The midnight Moon
Your head
On my chest
Lips requesting
Begging for a kiss
Slow moves
Moon following
Our moves
Kiss in the night

I Love these thoughts.

Nightshade's Promise

The title was heard in a tiny part of a line in the movie "Beetlejuice".  I researched it and discovered many different connections so I thought I would add my own as well.

Nightshade's Promise  -  09 Feb 14

In a dream
Splintered light

A promise given
In the dawn
When time began

Purple gown
Swirls around the night
Holds her perfume

We said we will share
Love through all our lives
Living the promise

Yes ~ yet another Love song ☺

A Little Song

Given the tendency for me to write Love songs, it seemed a fairly natural thing to follow that with a poem with this title.

A Little Song  -  08 Feb 14

A little song
Drifted through my mind
Words formed
Joined with the tune
Became Love
You entered my thoughts
Took me
Into your world
Shared a kiss
Opened me to you

This transition in no way implies the end of the Love songs ~ there are many more to come.

Words In The Sand

This is similar to something I posted before but I do feel that this is better.

Words In The Sand  -  07 Feb !4

In the sand
I wrote a message
For you
Just three words
So full of meaning

The tide came in
Took my words
To you

Waves returned
Moved on
When I looked
There were five words
“I know ~
I Love you"

I find it rather interesting how some things come back and ask to be amended.

Hours Ours

I wanted to create something different but felt as though I had been thinking for hours and that thought rather inspired me.

Hours Ours  -  07 Feb 14

Counting seconds
In a day full of ours
We make time stretch
To mean what we want
It grows into daze
Simply shakes us
Love takes us everywhere
And gives us time
To play together

... and everywhen I look I see her face.

Into Spring [Haikū]

Three Haikū inspired by the recent weather.

Into Spring [Haikū]  -  06 Feb 14


Fuyu no yoru
January refuses
To let go ~ still cold


Fuyu no ame
Cold ~ it wants to be snow now
Wet February


Coast torn  ~ sea beating
Ocean thundering again
Fuyu no nam

Fuyu no yoru ~ Winter night
Fuyu no ame ~ Winter rain
Fuyu no nam ~ Winter waves

A little change from the Love songs but they will return.

Building In Dreams

This poem grew suddenly just after I had built the previous offering.  It feels even more like a song then the other Love songs I have posted here.

From the moment
I close my eyes
To sleep
Until I wake into the day
You are here
With me

Through all my dreams
We walk
We sit and talk
We build our new realities
On the ashes
Of the old

Through the day
You are in my mind
Keeping me company
Whispering sweet thoughts
And holding the promise
That you will return

In my dreams again
We never part
Never parted
And our song continues
To fill our lives

This feels good.

Another Love song, this time with a slightly different feel.

Waiting  -  04 Feb 14

Leaving thoughts behind
Allowing feelings to wander
Amid the evening glow
From the setting sun
In those moments
Love reminds me
What I already know …
You are waiting for me
I come to you
Ready to see you
Waiting to share

I hope to continue the different feel type of Love songs just for the variation.

Another little Love song, I Love the way these are flowing to me.

Songs  -  03 Feb 14

Walking through the world
Listening to the song
You sang for me
To tell me of your Love

I hear your voice
On the wind
In the whisper
Of the trees

Taking your hand
Holding it to my Heart
We journey on through our world
Singing the song together

Long may this flow continue.

You opened us

Invitation To The Dance

Wandering back into the Love songs.

Invitation To The Dance  -  01 Feb 14

As our lips touch
Marking time
