The title came first and sat in my mind for many hours before the poem actually grew. This has just a little more than the usual "limite surréaliste" elements to it. Forgotten Trilogy - 31 Jan 14 Unusual words Charged with meanings Beyond the expected Have you heard the songs That tell the tales Of ancient mysteries Sing with the Moon And chase A feather on the wind This poem feels just a little strange to me.
Birthed, as usual, during the night and I felt the images call me. Love Light - 30 Jan 14 In the morning Night fragments Before the sun Dreams live on Wrapped in us We keep them growing Your eyes Meet mine In the sunlight Love continues to grow In the fullness Of our light Maybe they will call to you too.
This poem ~ another Love song ~ asked to be written during the day and was only finished slightly after midnight. Moon Love - 28 Jan 14 Moon Tastes the Love Smiles Adds her own We Walking in her light Holding Each other close Kissing In the moonlight Forever There is a second poem embedded within the whole of this poem. If you read just the single word lines in order and mentally add one punctuation character ~ a comma ~ in the right place the second Love song appears.
A Love song about what could be the beginning of a relationship. Perfume Of The Rose - 28 Jan 14 Touching the rose Opening petals To reveal the Love within Damp Glistening with the thoughts Of please be mine And I will be yours Perfume of the rose Calling us together It could be just a recollection of how the song began.
Hearing the hail beating against my window, my thoughts wandered into wanting to be warm and so this poem was birthed. Winter Warmed - 27 Jan 14 Window opened To the summer Once upon a time Now the fairytale Has turned and Winter closes the window Within the walls Warm fire burns Your arms hold me close Within we now Love’s fire keeps us warm Thoughts of winter gone Hoping the power of sympathetic magic will warm things a bit.
This was not the poem I started to write, somehow it changed and the end result is now completely different. Message - 26 Jan 14 Watching for a message From you I still remember How our words Intermingled Blended Floated with each other Through our skies Through our minds Message I am here You said and Touched me Touched my Heart I think it works but in a totally different way.
It was a dark night and interesting and intriguing thoughts wandered through my mind. Kisses In The Night - 25 Jan 14 Dark night Stars sing in chorus Light from a solo Candle calms the shadows Love takes me Holds me close Kisses shape themselves Form a signature Across my back I feel her smile She claims me For herself One day I may start to show some of the other levels of my poetry.
This poem came to me and came to be because of some happy thoughts which I shall cherish. Some Moments - 24 Jan 14 Some moments Were always meant to be Some moments Turn into hours and days Some moments Are a lifetime and become Eternity When fed with Love Cherished moments I hope you have moments like these.
Interesting how an "almost memory" can trigger the formation of a poem. Thinking back into the set of "might have been" happenings can bring out something that may happen. Knowing - 23 Jan 14 Afternoon Warm summer sun Kisses your body Gentle breeze Barely stirs your hair Tender caress You look into my eyes And we know No words need be said Or perhaps has happened somewhen else.
Nothing I can say about this apart from ~ it feels right ... Living The Dream - 22 Jan 14 Living in a dream Holding you In a warm Loving embrace Your touch Has raised me To new heights Shivers of pleasure Chase each other Around and along My spine Suddenly I wake To know The dream is now I share your kiss We have made our dream Real ... and it feels good too.
A little poem inspired, in part, by a continuing weather theme. Whispers On The Wind - 21 Jan 14 Our secrets Told to the wind Blustery day Words scattered Taken and mixed Yet they Remain Fully understood By you And By me Our secrets Come ~ let us whisper them Again Another Love song too ...
Happy events conspired and this poem was birthed. Joyful Wind - 20 Jan 14 In the moment when We recognised who we are We saw how We fitted together and Our Love sparked Lit our Hearts We let the painless fire Burn our fears To dull ash Blown away By the wind Of our Joy I really Love the way things work.
Another little special Love song. Heart Touch - 19 Jan 14 You touched my Heart Opened my eyes To see you Showed me the wonders Of how Love can be You showed me your Heart Welcomed my hands When I reached to touch Held me close Accepted what I had to offer Hearts in contact Always sharing thoughts Through wordless times In the silence Sharing Love Wordless moments when more can be said than through any words.
Back to the Love songs again ~ feels like coming home. Secret Thoughts - 18 Jan 14 Secret thoughts In my mind I have held you Softly kissed you Shared me Shared our time together Secret thoughts Held in the space between You and me We and the world World and Infinity Secret thoughts Of sensual dreams Held in the special place Where only we can go Together … together Love song with a touch of sensuality.
Just after breakfast my mind sent the pun into my system, this was reinforced by hearing hail hitting the roof of the conservatory. It was not too long before the poem was birthed. Winternet - 16 Jan 14 Ice falls Dancing on the roof Skittering across the road Playing the song Of January Winter’s arms Casting the net Spread wide Calling to Spring To fade the winternet Despite the pun, I feel the poem works rather well.
I am getting a rather strong feeling that I have written something a bit like this before but an equally strong feeling says that it is different enough to let it stand. Evening Fire - 16 Jan 14 Long slow evening Warm fire dances Around the grate We sit and dream Sit and remember How we were Weave new memories Of how we will be In the now Wrapped in each other We savour the moment Let the dreams flow Sometimes the memories tell their own tales.
A sensual and mildly surreal poem for the offering today. Fingertips Watching - 15 Jan 14 Touch Eyes of the body Fingertips see As they wander Lightly dance Barely breathing Whisper on the in-breath Sweet sigh on the out Fingertips watching Smile Bit of a change but ~ change is good.
As I was getting into bed I happened to see the Moon in the far western sky. At that moment I was aware of the title line and, once in bed, was prompted to write the first stanza on my phone. The second stanza arrived in the afternoon. Unexpected Moon - 13 Jan 14 An unexpected Moon Watches us as we Whisper our goodnights Reflected in your eyes Her cool light Becomes warm Moon watches As we drift into sleep Then draws Her blanket of rain About her shoulders And in the darkness ~ sleeps Fascinating how a random sighting can trigger a poem.
A straightforward Love song ~ illustrating "together" while "apart". Five Thousand Miles - 13 Jan 14 Listening to the rain Beating against my window I feel cold I shiver Then I feel you holding me Even though … My memory and thoughts Fill the distance Between us And I know … We are together Within us Always I like the effect.
While looking for something on the Web, several hours ago, my mind suddenly dragged the one word out of its inner recesses. That word became the starting point for this poem which is a "limite surréaliste" Love song. An interesting combination but I feel it works. Intermezzo - 11 Jan 14 In the space between moments… First Movement I hear your smile Locked inside the rose Of your Love Crystals glisten Tremble in the Joy Of your laugh Second Movement Kisses wrapped in mirth Friendly smile carries An open Heart full if Love We share the time And tell the tales We grew …A gem shines Another moment opens My mind does have some deep inner recesses ~ in which can be found ... but that is something for other poems.
A blend of old memories and new wishes brings a new Love song into the sunset moment. Together At Sunset - 11 Jan 14 Sitting In the window seat Watching the sun set Into the ocean On a long Slow Warm afternoon Bringing thoughts of you To sit with me Listen to the gulls As they wheel And cry Over the waves Our Eternity Together I can clearly see both parts of the story.
Because I saw the word "whispered" in the Twitter stream I was inspired to write this little Love song. Whispered Conversation - 11 Jan 14 Talking to myself again I know that you are listening I can hear your smile As you hear my words Especially when you hear me say I Love you You whisper in return And I hear you Clearly I Love you I said there would be more Love songs.
A little poem which grew after I saw the word "unique" and it just seemed to flow. Unique - 09 Jan 14 Enduring The image that is you Still with me Over all the years Part of me now Always with me Unique you I Love the way these things happen.
Back to the Love songs again but this time with a hint of something more. Waking Passion - 06 Jan 14 Music in my head You danced for me Slow Seductive Barely moving I could feel your thoughts Hinted contact Gentle Smooth Fingers wandering Diamond ring of stars Watched the dance Graceful Loving Seeing more We moved together Welcoming the touch Waking Passion In our eyes Not too much more is it?
Moving away from Love songs for a little while ... Purple Night - 05 Jan 14 Purple night Random images drift Across my mind’s eye Sketched against The sky Trying to hide In the field of stars Still they watch me Still I see them And in my mind Again They dance The Love songs will be back soon.
Continuing the theme of Love songs, this one with a slightly different feel to it. Unexpected - 04 Jan 14 An unexpected touch Electrifying my senses Opening a portal Into another world Of new and wonderful Places to explore You knew how To release my thoughts Open me into wonders I never imagined You waited for me In the new world I arrived You held me close Then with a gentle kiss We turned Walked together To explore I rather like the way these poems are developing.
Talked about them for long enough, thought the time was right to actually write one with the title too. Love Songs - 03 Jan 14 Take my Love I offer it to you Completely Without reservation In my mind I have sung Love songs To you Endlessly I give myself to you Freely Sharing me with you Totally Hope you like it.
This poem grew just under an hour after I built the last post. It has a different feel but is still a Love song and I am rather pleased with it. Lifetimes - 92 Jan 14 Lifetimes We have been together Watching Dreaming together Smiling Dancing in our days together Enjoying Moments of sunset and dawn Living Holding it all together Loving Love songs seem to be a rather strong part of my life and writings at this time.
Another poem inspired by a small assortment of random word sightings. Butterfly Of Love - 02 Jan 14 Winter Love Cold wind Rain Dispelled by you As you watch me The chrysalis that holds My Heart Is waiting for your sun To warm it into life I am your butterfly Also another Love song.
I was watching a movie on television but Muse kept interrupting and requesting that I made notes for this poem. Starlight - 01 Jan 14 Starlight The key to open doors That no one else knew Existed You showed me your door Smiled An invitation I sprinkled starlight It opened You sprinkled starlight On the path to my door Illuminating your way To me As I have said before ~ I know better than to argue with Muse.
