Two Souls


Another of the "five thousand miles" sequence of Love songs.





Two Souls  ~  24 Jul 14

Five thousand miles
A tiny step
When two Souls
Are already together

Minds linked
Thoughts complete
With sentences finished
By the other ~ with a smile

Five thousand miles
Of whispers
Heard clearly as lips
Pressed against ears

Lips pressed
Kisses shared
Miles melt away
To nothing





I like where this series seems to be going.

Heart Whispers


Whispers tell me things ...





Heart Whispers  -  23 Jul 14

I listen to the whispers
In my Heart
They are sweet
Gentle
Loving
They tell me about you
Remind me
~ Even though I need
No reminding ~
Of why
I Love you





The voices in my head are nice voices.

Ice Swan


A Love song with a special theme, subtle yet totally clear.





Ice Swan  -  23 Jul 14

Ice swan carved
Dripping
Revealing a Heart
Your warmed it
Kissed it
Kissed me

Memory of the swan
Held in the water
Drinking memories
Holding them within us
Yet setting them free
Live on

We hold the swan
In us
We share the Love
Always
Together
As we swim





I think it is clear, at least.

Song Of The River


Collecting the drinking water recently, I walked beside the stream for a short while and was aware of all the sounds made by the river and the birdsong all around.





Song Of The River  -  21 Jul 14

Listen to the music
Song of the river
In a moment
Of quiet awareness
Sound of water
Dancing over rocks
Kissing tree roots
Inviting birds
To add the high notes




A Lovely experience on a Lovely day.

Feelings Shared


Love always tastes better when shared.





Feelings Shared  -  21 Jul 14

I remember
You said to me
Just after you
Heard me say
These words
I Love you
The warm glow
You fired in me
Just like the feelings
You told me
You felt
The same
Repeated the words
To me





Another Love song and this one tastes good.

Opening


A Lust song in the guise of a chess game.





Opening  -  18 Jul 14

Gambit ~ first moves
Reaching for you
Letting my hands wander
Feeling the power of
Our Love
Offering a kiss
To start the game
Contemplating
The moves ahead
All of them
Involve you





The opening gambit starts the game and suggests where following moves will happen.

Windsong


Song of the wind, carrying the whispers of Love.





Windsong  -  17 Jul 14

Trees are sighing
Wind caresses the leaves
Sings softly

Listen

Singing for us
Bringing Love
Through our night

Whispers





Whispering through the night.  I am listening.

Wind Singer


This was inspired partially by the weather and partially by a remembered  poem of mine.





Wind Singer  -  15 Jul 14

Wind dancer
Moves to the music
She makes
Bells chime for her
├ćolian harp plays softly
Wind singer
Sweetly forms the songs
Sings along
To the rhythm
From the trees
Wind whisperer
Carries the secret words
Spoken in Love
When only whispers
Can carry the meaning





I Love the way that seemingly random, unrelated things rise to offer something new.

Kisses Drifting


Another little variant on the Love song with just a little hint of sensuality added as a spice.





Kisses Drifting  -  14 Jul 14

Darkness takes the day
Away into the night
Leaves a trail of ideas
Like kisses
On bare arms
Tempting thoughts
Incitement to follow
Sensuous invitation
How can I refuse?
Joining hands
We walk into the dark





A little spice is always a good thing.

Ocean


Being surrounded and submerged in Love.  Just one of the many feelings.





Ocean  -  13 Jul 14

Swimming in the ocean
Of your Love
Feeling you all around me
Cherishing you
Loving you
Drinking in your Love

Feeling the care
Gentle support
Love you give
Holding me

Drunk on the taste
Dreaming in your gentle waves

Floating in you





There are many feelings ~ this is just one of them.

Rosy Darkness


A Love song in the place where dream becomes reality.





Rosy Darkness  -  12 Jul 14

I close my eyes
In the rosy darkness
You watch me
I smiled at you
As the moment lingered
Becoming hours
Our Eternity
Grew





Hope you are not getting tired of seeing my Love songs.

Watching


Watching and making contact, physically and spiritually.  This has got to be a good and fun idea.





Watching  -  09 Jul 14

Watching you
Seeing the secret smiles
That only we know
Those little messages
Silent whispers

Watching me
You see my fingers
Slowly wave on air
You feel the secret touch
Along your spine

Watching
We know what we think
How we feel
Knowing what our secrets
Really are





One of the best ways of communication.

Sun Flight


Just a little Love song.





Sun Flight  -  09 Jul 14

Into the East
To meet the rising sun
Dawn rakes my dreams
Wraps them in a warm glow
Prepares them for flight
Takes them high
To show where the sun
Will set
To show where you wait
For my dreams
Where you wait
For me





Sometimes the simple ones are more interesting.

Promise But...


This was written on 17 Jul 14 and posted slightly out of sequence just to keep it relevant.





Promise But...  -  17 Jul 14

Hoping
Sky getting dark
Promise of rain
Few drops fall
One roll of thunder
Loud
Promise
Empty promises





The offers made from the sky were not fulfilled.

Cut Price Love Song


The first line shouted to be written with the intentional error in the middle because it set the tone for the whole poem.  Then the other “errors” crept in and it grew further.





Cut Price Love Song  -  08 Jul 14

Sing a song for sixpence
Pocket full of lies
The four and twenty
Blackbirds flew away
Before the start of day
The flowers you gave
Have wilted in my hand
The sweet Love song
I hoped for has turned sour





So, not really a Love song at all but one of the broken dreams.

Rainbow's End


Treasure at the end of the rainbow.





Rainbow's End  -  08 Jul 14

At the end of the rainbow
Lies a treasure
Which cannot be counted
Nor spent in any way
The value is incalculable
That treasure is
You





Another little Love song.

Vortex


A Love song with a spinning energy to lift us.





Vortex  -  07 Jul 14

Round and round
Never decreasing circles
Vortex grows
You swept me up
Took me within you
For a ride
Took me within you
To show me
Where we are
~
We are where
The vortex touches
Our Hearts
Takes us on a ride
Together





A ride like this can only be good and fun.

Shapes


A subtle Love song but a Love song none the less.





Shapes  -  06 Jul 14

Slow-moving cloud
Painted in shades
Of sun and shadow
Shape of the sky
Playing with light

In the sky
You dance for me
Your movement
Builds the shape
Of Love

Slow-moving song
We dance together
In the shape of night
Between the stars
We glide





Shape of the dance.

Tonight


A Love song which looks like it wants to become something more.





Tonight  -  05 Jul 14

I heard the whisper
Little secret thoughts
Passed between us
In the night
Suggestions for what
We want to create
Ideas of how to play
The next level
Of our game
Soft kisses
Getting warmer
Whispers getting louder
As play becomes
More enjoyable





It wants to be a Lust song perhaps.

Afternoon Massage


This poem is a little out of order, time-wise, but I felt that it was worth breaking my rule for this one.
After the near-Freudian slip in "Afternoon Message" I was inspired to write the sequel and post it today.





Afternoon Massage  -  10 Jul 14

Fingertips wandering
Fleetingly passing across
Soft skin
Goosebumps chasing
Dancing around where
Fingers pause
Lingering
Then the hands explore
Sensuous stroking
Feeling
Everything





Bit of a Lust song too.
Hope you find it was worth my effort.

Afternoon Message


A little Freudian slip ~ I was just preparing the title for this post and nearly typed "Afternoon Massage" ~ that would have made an interesting poem methinks.





Afternoon Message  -  03 Jul 14

In your afternoon
I whisper
Little words of Love
I let the wind
Carry them to you





Perhaps the alternate version would make a good poem ~ I shall work on this and see.

Desires


Yes ~ another Love song.





Desires  -  02 Jul 14

Once
I wanted everything
It was a stuck recording
Of want want want

Then when I discovered you
I realised
All I really wanted
All I really needed … was

You





Almost verging on the Lust song area too.

Beacon


The light calling me to you.





Beacon  -  01 Jul 14

The brightest star
Shines in your sky
Guiding me
Along a road
Lined with candles
Making sure
I follow the way
To you





I am always watching the light.

Forgotten Moments


We all have those times when a fragment of a memory wanders through our minds, sometimes they speak rather loudly to try to get our attention.





Forgotten Moments  - 30 Jun 14

Forgotten moments
Hinted by a sudden thought
Wondering where
It came from
Wondering where
They went
Transient thoughts
Fade before the memories do
Leaving the memories
Orphaned
Though still whispering





Usually these thoughts can be ignored.  Sometimes they are just too loud.

Song Of Freedom


A Love song about the beginnings of a journey.





Song Of Freedom  -  29 Jun 14

The sands of time
Flow silently through
Our fingers
My whispers in your mind
Sing a gentle song
Of freedom
Let us go and see
Where the sands take us





Wonder where the sands will lead.

Night Whispers


Sing a song of whispers ~ weave them into a Love song.





Night Whispers  -  29 Jun 14

Warm night
Secret whispers
Never disturbing the quiet
Night spirits cannot hear us
As we plan our dream

Nightbirds sing
They guess our plan
Tease us
Threaten to tell
Sing on nightbirds





Maybe that should be a Lust song ~ or at least the beginnings of one.

Dreamcastles


Building a special home with a Loved one, dreams as yet but...





Dreamcastles  -  27 Jun 14

Sharing ideas
Growing our home
In the realms
Of dream beyond now
Landscapes wrap around
Vistas open
Room by room
The castle grows





Funny how the spellchecker accepts sandcastles but not dreamcastles.

We Dance


A call to dance from a lot of different places.





We Dance  -  27 Jun 14

Rain dance
Across a cloudy sky
Sun dance
Between the showers
Moon dance
Dreaming in the night
We dance
Everywhere we can hear
The music of our dance
Played by our Souls





Stepping out to join in the dance together.

I Will Find You


A Love song with an element of science fiction ~ for a change.





I Will Find You  -  26 Jun 14

I will find you
Even when you hide
On other planets
Beneath the rainbow rings
Of alien worlds
Secret places
Hidden in another land
I shall look
And I shall find you
To show you my Love





Re-reading it now, there is a certain creepyness to this poem.

Still Dreams


Yet another sweet Love song.





Still Dreams  -  26 Jun 14

Your Heart and mine
Have been together
Through all our Eternities
And when our dreams
Are still
In the night
I wait for you to return
To my side





A lot of these little Love songs are filled with longing, somehow making them more poignant.

Sweet Thief


Another little Love song.





Sweet Thief  -  26 Jun 14

You stole my Heart
In the night
Sweet thief
You left me
With a hint of perfume
And your Heart
A Loving present
To show
That in the exchange
We shall share the dream





Tender thievery.
