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
Fanning the summer sky
Encouraging spark of the sun
To try to pierce the cloak
Raven knows the game
Flicks the cloak higher
Stars on the cloak
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
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
In your sea of colours
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 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
A gentle invitation, one which gets stronger. Leading - 14 Jun 14 Gentle touches Whispered words You know how to lead Encourage With light kisses Encouraging me to you As the kisses Grew stronger A naughty smile slips onto my face.
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 Sharing Our Soul song There will be more to come at some point.
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.
Another Love song ~ I do not know what else to say about it. Now And Now - 11 Jun 14 In undreamed seconds Between 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.
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 Darkness I whispered You are missing from me Wistful thoughts.
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 ♥
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.
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.
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.
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 Was 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.
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 Forgetting 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 Together Always 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 Inviting Enticing Luring me To you Tempting me to move Closer Just a little "Lust dance" ~ thank you dani ♥ for your suggestion.
When I saw a little spiritual message recently it suggested to me the way a poem could go. No Purpose - 02 Jun 14 Walking Because No purpose Like a dance Just because Enjoying The feel of moist sand Between our toes Ebbing tide Calls us on Together We share Warm sun ~ cool waves We On the beach A little Love song about being together on the shore.
This was going to be something different but the poem took an unexpected turn and arrived with this. Asking Whisper - 01 Jun 14 Whispers Coy smile teasing Asking 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 Forever The unexpected often does create some rather good results.
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.
