As promised [ threatened ? ] a couple of days ago, I now offer a variation on the "limite surréaliste" concept. A darker level which I am naming "limite surréaliste de l'obscurité". Moondark - 29 May 14 And in the darkness Of a Moondark sky Stars hidden By the nightmare And your bloodstream Dreams Scarlet screams Of oft-told dreams Schisms in the dark of dream Shining in a brooding night Pandora’s dream The tears of a sleeping princess Drown the smiles Of the aged clown Who moves in his usual ways To please the King In the dark sky Dreams are pinned for all to see To imaginary stars And all thoughts Hoping for a dawn Which never comes Do you think that I could take this to darker levels?
Perhaps this is a possible definition of Love. Mutual Madness - 29 May 14 In a moment of madness I reached out to you For comfort My madness was rewarded As you reached for me Together We took our madness And turned it into something Special A little Love song with a slight twist.
When this poem was birthed I realised that it was one of the darker "limite surréaliste" offerings. It rather pleased me because it really emphasised the surreal nature of where my poems are beginning to wander. Webbed In Dark - 28 May 14
Fringes of darkness Decorate my thoughts The edges open to reveal Scarlet dreams and open wounds Web of dark Holds me in its thrall Fingers of ice Run down my spine Drip in my memory Flow through Unwanted dreams Fringes of my mind Lost in the dark Maybe future poems in this theme will be even darker ~ who knows.
Just the first line ~ along with an impression of something on the edge of my vision ~ came to me as I was preparing for bed, since it was just the single line I ignored it. When I woke the line was still there so I let it flow. Edge Of Vision - 27 May 14 Seeing Aware of movement On the edge Formless movement Hinted shapes Then you Filling my vision With the vision Of you Watching you move Around me Unexpected arrival Always welcome Your moves excite me Hinting at more Dancing from the edge of me Into the Heart of me This poem was not quite what I was expecting but it works.
This poem grew in the late afternoon but the last stanza only appeared when I was in bed and Muse dropped a hint. Cold Tears - 26 May 14 Afternoon rain Washes like cold tears Across the cheeks Of the earth Warm incense Touches the senses Flows through the mind Opens thoughts to elsewhere Sweet smoke Takes me back … forward Links me through all the times I inhabit The worlds of everywhen Show me what I am I remember the cold tears I once shed The tears for long-lost Loves Held once then slipped Into the mists forgotten Incense returned to remind me It is not unusual for additional stanzas to appear when I am supposed to be going to sleep.
A little poem which grew from the opening line which sat in my mind for most of the afternoon. Dark And Light - 25 May 14 Abandoned in the darkness How it feels as you left Surrounded by empty Filled by empty Empty Then your light brightens my world I open my eyes and see your face Surrounded with you Filled with you You Not certain how to describe this poem.
This started out being a Love song but my thoughts gradually shifted and the focus shifted too. The end result was a received Love song ~ see what I mean ... Finger Painting - 24 May 14 Paint on me the rainbow hues Of your Love Use no brushes Just your fingertips Colour my world With your Love’s light Show me your world So we can dance together Little traces in light and colour You leave on my skin Turn into words for me to read I Love You I rather like the way it turned out.
In an afternoon as tiredness wafted over me, my mind was more open to thoughts and this poem grew. Places - 23 May 14 In the secret place Where dark and light Blend and merge Love grows In the secret place Where whispers Are the loudest thing Love grows In the secret place Where fingertips Do the talking Lust grows In all the secret places We share together Words are unnecessary We grow A sort of Love song / Lust song.
I offer the third and final part of the "Wrap" sequence of poems. We Wrap We - 22 May 14 We own the dream In dream caressed Played the magic games Through to completion Knowing on the new day Ahead of us We can start new games So for now We rest In each other’s arms We wrapped in we Into the night Together We With kisses And Love In our dream Forever I hope you enjoyed the sequence.
This is the second of the three "Wrap" sequence of poems. I Wrap You - 21 May 14 In soft silk enfolded Held with gentle kisses In a tender embrace I wrap you in me Holding you close In a world of our own In a dream of our own Our days and nights Flow together As I hold you Wrapped in me The final poem will appear on the morrow ~ all being well.
This is the first part of a trilogy of poems which are just forming. If all goes well the second and third poems will follow on successive days. You Wrap Me - 20 May 14 Moments of another day Wrapped in gossamer Fine dream Open to interpretation Only one can be seen You hold me In the same dream All the days Joined as one image Wrapped in you Posting this just after I have said that most of my poems do not need to be read in a specific order.
This is not the poem I had intended to post today, that one will probably appear tomorrow. Muse woke me as I was trying to get to sleep and offered her words ~ since, as I have said, I never argue with her ~ and so here is the poem she offered. Prophecy - 18 May 14 The prophecy Waits For those who Wait And watch With open eyes And open minds A man Five thousand miles A woman Connect Build Holding dreams In a sacred space Together Interesting how these things happen. The "Five thousand miles" reference is from two previous poems I wrote a little while ago.
A poem with more than the average amount of "limite surréaliste" in it. Remembering What - 17 May 14 Remember tomorrow The land where Possibilities and impossibilities Collide And shed the fragments On our today Traces for us to follow Images imagined Tasted in a dream Smelled while awake Waiting to see The fragments Come together again Before the next dance Perhaps I should develop the category to allow for different levels.
There was no specific trigger for this poem other than a feeling which grew out of the paired words in the first stanza. Sensuous Smile - 17 May 14 Tongue tip Tasting teasing Sparkling eyes Watching me Watching you Tasting your lips Sharing the sensuous smile I feel your breath On my cheek As you whisper The special words We share Not so much a Love song as a Lust song.
A poem filed with vague memories, future wishes and a little communication with the sea. Afternoon By The Sea - 14 May 14 Sit by the window Let the thoughts Drift gentle Through your mind Remember the afternoons When we played With the sea She still waits for us Waiting for the tide to change So we can walk out Across the sand to the water’s edge And dance with the sea As she dances with us Through all our days And all our nights In all our ways With a hint of Love song in it too.
This poem was birthed just moments after the last one. Kissed - 13 May 13 Kissed by the rain As I wait for you Kissed by you As you arrive Kissed by the sun Because you smile Kissed by angels Because you are Occasionally the poems do come in groups.
The idea for this came to me several hours before the poem actually formed, when it did the poem flowed quite well with only minor changes needed. Thank You For You [Acrostic] - 13 May 14 Thoughts flow between us Holding future memories Amber moments of afternoon Never ending Kisses shared Yesterday held a promise Of special things to come Unexpected pleasures From our Eternities Our worlds are endless Rolling through the Multiverse You have reached Out to me Unfolding our future for us Thank you ♥
Fairly early in my day the one-word title came into my mind but it was well past midnight, of the following day, before the poem grew. Dreamwalker - 13 May 1 A dream once thought Impossible Made real by what you said To me Whispered in the night Surrounded by stars Wrapped in Love Coming to see you In our dream I walk To you Sometimes just letting the thoughts cook for a while ...
A day filled with racing clouds was the inspiration for this poem. It was also to be a carrier of a little Love. Clouds - 11 May 14 Sunlight Dances between Showers Dark clouds Light clouds … No clouds Dreams dance Between minds Skip like clouds Warm thoughts Filled with Love Fly between us Love drives the world.
Having walked a labyrinth, I felt that I would like to offer a slightly different take on it. Labyrinth - 11 May 14 Intention You set the path Showed me where to go Follow the way Through the labyrinth Only the one path Leads me to you Only one way Through the labyrinth Your gate awaits Your Love Calls me on Into the centre A kiss opens the gate For me A Love song from the labyrinth.
A Love song triggered by a perceived taste of honey even though I have not eaten any for many months. Slowly - 08 May 14 Honeyed words Drip Slowly From her tongue Fall softly on me Glazing my thoughts Giving me a taste Of her Her honey intoxicates me Lets her Love Fill me Draws my Love out For her Interesting how little imagined things can influence thoughs of the "real world".
This poem grew in the afternoon and is formed from a completely serendipitous event. I mistyped the word "more" in the last line and the auto-correct function in Word changed to to "moiré" for me only after I looked away and did something else for a while. It was such a good change I decided to keep it and I feel really pleased with the result. Secrets In The Sky - 07 Ma7 14 Sun secretly rising Behind a veil of cloud Air has a tinge of blue But not in the sky Afternoon sky Just grey cloud Hiding moiré secrets Sometimes chance plays an important part in life.
This is a sort of reverse Love song, "my" response to the Loving touches from someone. Love's Rose - 5 May 14 The scent of the rose Caresses my senses Soft velvet petals Stroke my cheeks You lay them on me With every move you make Every touch Your hand of Love Your whispered message Soft Love Words that grow Within me always A Love song is still a Love song however it was written and in whatever direction it flows.
My mind was open for inspiration and only the one word "fires" came through, always ready for the challenge I wrote. Fires - 05 May 14 Fire in the sky Sunlight warms the world Lights the day Opens our eyes to see Fire in the mind Warms the body And opens awareness To new beauty Fire in the Heart Opens me to see you Shows me your beauty Fills me with happiness Fire in the Soul Drives the Passion Draws us closer And takes In Love Sometimes I surprise myself ~ though there is no surprise that this turned into another Love song.
I am not at all certain where the inspiration for this poem came ~ but I am glad it did. Drifting Through Afternoon - 04 May 14 The afternoon’s mellow drift Colours melt into dream Hands intertwined Cradling thoughts Listening to soft words Washing like gentle waves Across my shore Your smile Is my sun And in your eyes The stars Just another little Love song.
Somewhere in the depths of my mind I heard something about candles and was inspired to write a poem. Candles - 04 May 14 Candles Room filled with soft light You carry the light Of Love to me You merge with my Love Make it yours Share you with me Love in the candlelight Wrapped in each other Always I was also aware of some music in the background.
Muse again interrupted a DVD I was watching to suggest that I write a poem so, as requested, here is the poem. Kisses In The Dark - 02 May 14 In near dark Moon’s reflected glow Paints streaks On the walls Silver glint In your eyes As you lean forward Lips touch Painting kisses On our Hearts As I have said before, I will never argue with Muse.
Yet another Love song ~ once again just because ... Moon's Silence - 01 May 14 Moon’s silence Allows the whispers And the secrets Of our Love to grow She watches But keeps our secrets To herself And in her silence She smiles There will be more to come before too long because I like writing them.
I felt a sudden urge to write another acrostic and Love song. Suddenly [Acrostic] - 30 Apr 14 Slowly ~ moment by moment Understanding grew Darkness faded and Daylight flowed in my Heart Ending the loneliness Now I knew that ~ I Love You I also seem to be getting a strange urge to make punny, or funny, references to the poem from the intro.
