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.

A water based Love song for someone special.

Wave  -  25 Jun 14

You are the wave
That washed me
Into your sea
Taking me away
Into your Love
Showing me
What you are

You are the Love
That makes me grow
You are the one
I have waited for
Through all my lives
The Love I have craved

I will ever walk
By the water’s edge
I will ever walk
With you by my side
And the dream of you
Will always remain
In my Heart

I say no more *grin*.

Raven Cloak

Watching dark clouds flapping like wings triggered my thoughts here and so the Raven was born to dance.

Raven Cloak  -  23 Jun 14

Dance of the raven
Swirling cloak
Fanning the summer sky
Encouraging spark of the sun
To try to pierce the cloak
Raven knows the game
Flicks the cloak higher
Pretending night
Black feathers
Iridescent shine
Stars on the cloak

The cloak has a magical effect on everything.

Colours Of Your Love

A Love song, which actually is a Love song ~ or at least that is what the words say.

Colours Of Your Love  -  23 Jun 14

You painted a Love song
On my Heart
In colours unexpected
You sang the solo
Your voice entranced me
Captivated me
And I listened to the colours
You wove for me
In our sky
Held by your smile
On the open sea
I sailed back to you
To remain
In your sea of colours

I Love writing Love songs.

Simple Pleasures

A Love song written from the end to the start point.  I rather like the tracking back to where it begins.

Simple Pleasures  -  22 Jun 14

Simple pleasures
~ ~ ~
Watching a slow sunset
In the warmth
Of an evening
~ ~ ~
Long cold drink
To recover from
The heat of the day
~ ~ ~
Gentle walk on a cool morning
To watch the sea
Dance with the shore
~ ~ ~
Long slow sweet kisses
From a Lover
To start the day

I find this form curiously satisfying.

Verge Of Tears

I do not often write sad songs and poems but when I do they are always Heart-felt.  Publishing this slightly out of sequence, it should appear a couple of days from now, but I felt that it was important for me to show this now.

Verge Of Tears  -  24 Jun 14

Walking in sadness
On the verge of tears
Because of misunderstood

Sitting in silence
Wrapped in the gathering gloom
Of after sunset
Feeling my Soul
Has been torn

Then the tears fell
Salty rain upon my cheeks
Accompanied by the silent
Thunder of an headache
Sad dance

Just something to say how I feel.

Silent Candlelight

A slightly longer than usual poem with a little Love song included.

Silent Candlelight  -  21 Jun 14

The silence of day’s end
Closes my ears
To the turmoil
Of the unthinking speakers
Finally mute

A candle in the dark
Shines for you
To call you to me
I sit and wait
In the dark with the candle

The mask is finally cast aside
My face is bare
You see me as I truly am
The silent candle tells you
All my faults

In that flame I see you
Watching me
A secret smile on your lips
We see each other
We know

And through the night we wait
For the moment
When the sun calls the day back
For us to start a song
To fill the silence

I do not think there is anything more for me to say about this poem.

Shared Wine

A little sensuous Love song ~ just because I wanted to write one.

Shared Wine  -  20 Jun 14

Sipping wine
From your cup
We smile
As we pass the cup
Between us
Sharing the Love
Tasting the kiss
On the rim

A little something I enjoy doing.

Pale Dreams

Just another little Love song.

Pale Dreams  -  19 Jun 14

Watching for a change
Light from the Moon
Washes over me
Through me
Pale dreams
Wander sweetly
Through my mind
Carrying images
Of you
Bringing us together

Pale only in that they are gentle.

Secret Dancer

A sensuous Love song.

Secret Dancer  -  19 Jun 14

Slow moves
Secret whispers
Come in closer
Hold me
Listen to the music
In our lives
Listen to our
Secret songs
Dancing in secret

There probably will be more of these to come.

Feather Clouds

Inspired by a series of fairly hot days and mostly dry days.

Feather Clouds  -  17 Jun 14

Feather clouds
Veil the sun
Cast dream shadows
On dry earth

Earth dreams of rain
Dreams in rainbow colours
Calling hopefully

Cloud watches
Whispers an answer
Not yet my friend
Not yet

Wondering when it will rain ~ so strange not to get any.

A little statement of Love, it could be taken as a Love song too.

Love  -  16 Jun 14

You took me
Turned me around
Twisted me
Reshaped me
Turned me inside out
Left me gasping
I had no idea
Love could be so powerful

There seem to be rather a lot of Love songs recently ~ long may it last ♥

Dreaming With You

The inspiration for this poem comes from a night-blessing I got from someone really close.  She was gracious enough to allow me to use it as the basis for this poem.

It is simultaneously a Love song and a message of missing and longing.

Dreaming With You  -  15 Jun 14

I miss you
The winds of evening
Blow cold through
My thoughts
I feel the night coming on

I hold you close
Even though you are not
With me
Because of everything
We mean to each other

I dream you
Draw you into me
Fill my thoughts with you
Fill my life with you
Let our dreams take us

I Love you
Wherever we are
Whenever ~ our connection
Is complete

Thank you

A gentle invitation, one which gets stronger.

Leading  -  14 Jun 14

Gentle touches
Whispered words
You know how to lead
With light kisses
Encouraging me to you
As the kisses
Grew stronger

A naughty smile slips onto my face.

The Bridge

Another member of the "Five Thousand Miles" series of Love songs.

The Bridge  -  13 Jun 14

The bridge is the way
Five thousand miles
Is but a step
When your arms call me
Your lips whisper my name

The bridge has brought me
I am in your arms
We share the whispers
The secrets
Of the kiss

The bridge has gone now
No longer needed
We are here
Our Soul song

There will be more to come at some point.

Shards Of Stars

A little poem inspired by seeing the full Moon.

Shards Of Stars  -  12 Jun 14

Drifting between
Sunset and Moonrise
Painted sky
Holds the myth
Of the shattered day
Soon all that will be seen
Are the star-shards
In the Moon-lit sky

In the silence of the night the stars sing.

Now And Now

Another Love song ~ I do not know what else to say about it.

Now And Now  -  11 Jun 14

In undreamed seconds
Now and now
We met

Now was
Curiously empty
Without the drift of Love
Through my Heart

Now is
Moments tie us together
Ribbons of silver
In the night

Now will be
A dream we share together
Shows us our futures
Our life together

A Love song which non-Lovers will say is just a simple Love song.

Friday, 13 June 2014


A Love song with an element of longing and sadness.

Darkness  -  11 Jun 14

Darkness welcomed me
When I felt an absence
Darkness held me close
Comforted me
Darkness tried to fill the gap
When you were not here
I whispered
You are missing from me

Wistful thoughts.

My Muse

This is the third of the three poems which were inspired by my Muse as I was trying to go to sleep a few nights ago.

My Muse  -  07 Jun 14

Suddenly aware
Of her lying beside me
Smiling gently
What is your name
My Muse

She gave me her name
Though I already knew
What it was
I have heard it
In my Heart for so long

With another sweet smile
She told me I could call on her
Whenever I wanted
Kissed me gently
Told me to sleep

I know her name ♥

Taste The Night

Another little sensuous offering, possibly a "Lust dance" to add to the new category.

Taste The Night  -  08 Jun 14

Taste the night
I allow her flavour
To flow over my tongue
Nocturnal nectar
Unexpectedly sweet
Spicily warm inviting

Clearing some of the night offerings from Muse.

Journey Into Darkness

A short and rather dark poem almost a "limite surréaliste de l'obscurité" offering.

Journey Into Darkness  -  07 Jun 14

I thought
Where I was
Darkness reached for me

A little confusing too.

Rainbow Window

Another poem which came from Muse just after the last one.  Again a poem with a hint of "limite surréaliste" ~ this had to be worked on just a bit because there were parts missing.

Rainbow Window  -  07 Jun 14

Rainbow window
Unexpected dream
Wanders through the night
Images painted on the sky
Dream painted
By pre-dawn
Shades of blue and light
Dream woven in my mind
Wrapped silk
Fabric rainbow
Soft texture on my skin
Is it you?

Interesting how Muse can offer these things just as I am trying to go to sleep.

Ruined Castles

This poem, with more than a hint of "limite surréaliste", was birthed when I was supposed to be getting to sleep.

Ruined Castles  -  07 Jun 14

Nightmares spin
Their dreadful tales
Gallop through the dreams
Shatter castles
Flailing tails
On the threshold
Of sanity
The house we built
In dream gone now
As is the dream
Lying in the rubble
Of the castle walls

Odd how these things happen.

Because [Acrostic Plus]

This poem carries its own explanations ~ the first stanza is the acrostic "Because" and the second stanza says why it was not what I intended.  Oddly though, it still works, I feel.

Because [Acrostic Plus]  -  06 Jun 14

Between thoughts
Empty spaces form
Catching your hands
As they pass by me
Unheard whispers
Slide past
Ears unheeding

In a moment
Of indecision
What I really wanted to say
How you have touched me
Shaped me
Loved me
But instead
Because formed

Sometimes my mind plays its own games and tells its own stories.

Escaping Forgetfulness

This poem came out of the idea that I could not recall what I was actually supposed to be doing just before settling down to write.

Escaping Forgetfulness  -  05 Jun 14

Where I am
Who I am
What I was doing

Your memory
Wanders back
Takes me by the hand
Leads me

Brings me back
To the place where
I remember again
With your touch

Thank you for the touch ♥

This poem started to form when I caught the edge of a Tweet and the word "spin" registered in my mind.

Together  -  04 Jun 14

In the darkness
When you feel alone
Just remember
I am here
For you

On cool nights
When I feel your absence
All I have to do
Is remember
Your face

We spin together
Dance together
Weave the fabric of our dream

I really like when just a single word can inspire a whole poem.

Another little sensuous piece.

Pheromones  -  03 Jun 14

Interesting aroma
Pheromones wafting
Through an open portal
Luring me
To you
Tempting me to move

Just a little "Lust dance" ~ thank you dani ♥ for your suggestion.

No Purpose

When I saw a little spiritual message recently it suggested to me the way a poem could go.

No Purpose  -  02 Jun 14

No purpose
Like a dance
Just because

The feel of moist sand
Between our toes
Ebbing tide
Calls us on

We share
Warm sun ~ cool waves
On the beach

A little Love song about being together on the shore.

Asking Whisper

This was going to be something different but the poem took an unexpected turn and arrived with this.

Asking Whisper  -  01 Jun 14

Coy smile teasing

Disembodied dream
Drifting around me
Secret touch

Your smile
Opens the door
In my Heart

You already know
The answer
To your question

Holding me
In your Heart
You read me

We write
Three words shared

The unexpected often does create some rather good results.

Accidental Revelation

This is the story of an happy "accident".

Accidental Revelation  -  31 May 14

Never intended to tell you
Did not plan
On saying anything
I did not think
That you were so observant
As you looked into my eyes
My Soul opened to you
You looked within
As my Soul said
I Love you
My body had to admit to
The accidental revelation

Happy accidents are the best kind.
