Morning Ride

An actual event ~ slightly embellished for the sake of poetic feelings.

Morning Ride  -  28 Dec 14

Into the East
Sunrise in my eyes
Dark horizons
Behind me
Spectra shone
From ice left by the night
I watch for
The beauty of the day
And the unfolding

Day over
Returning to the West
Lights at the end of the world
Lighthouse in a hidden sea

Orion looks down
Watches me
Shows me the Moon
She watches
Caresses in a frost painted night

The light of dawn
Now a memory
Dark horizon
Surrounds me

A very frosty morning and on return the frost was settling again.

End of the world refers to Land's End and the lighthouse is Longshhips, since the night was dark the sea was invisible.  Orion is my favourite constellation and the Moon is a first quarter crescent.

Touching Dreams

A Love song inspired by a chance-seen image of sand falling from a hand.  The rest came from my Muse.

Touching Dreams  -  28 Dec 14

Grains of sand
Between my toes
Under my fingers
I touch
Let them trickle
From my hands
Each one a crystal
Holding a dream
Fragments of we
Shining always
We touch
Let the waves
Take us
Weave our dreams

Love the way these form from little images and thoughts.

Dream Smiles

Another Love song.

Dream Smiles  -  23 Dec 14

The echoes of the distant day
Rolling through the mists
I see your face sketched
In my dreams
Your smile brings warmth
Shining through my body

I make no apologies for another Love song.

Dark Wind

A poem taking me into night so that I can meet . .

Another of the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence of Love songs.

Dark Wind  -  23 Dec 14

As the dark wind
Blows through ebon branches
Sweeping stars from
The moonlight path
As the dark night
Paints shadows across the sky
Between the cloud
And moonbow
The wind whispers
A lullaby to carry me
Into sleep
So I can travel
The five thousand miles
To be with my Love

I enjoy the meetings.

Stories about Love songs and Lust songs.

Stories  -  22 Dec 14

You never told me
The stories of you
Or how we came to be
Together now

You never read
My stories on my lips
Though you tasted them …
Lingered on certain words

You never hid
Anything from me
Our stories woven together
With kisses

Special stories,

Solstice Promise

A celebration of the Solstice with a hint of Love song.

Solstice Promise  -  21 Dec 14

Light wishes
Darkness washes away
Your promise fills me
So does your Love

Ever growing
Never slowing
From Solstice to Solstice
Promise fulfilled

Promise of the Winter Solstice and a promise of Love.

Sweet Sounds

Another Love song with just a little Lust song.

Sweet Sounds  -  20 Dec 14

The sweet sound
Gentle whispers in my ears
Telling me
How you feel about me
I echo your song
We sing a soft duet
Interwoven with
Sweeter kisses
Mingling with
Soft sighs

The softest sounds are often the sweetest.

Butterfly Night

Inspired by an event which occurred in the very early hours [about 02:00] when two Butterflies appeared in my office.

Butterfly Night  -  18 Dec 14

Messengers of Transformation
Visiting in the night
Circling the room
Circling me
Weaving a spell of change
In me and through me
Touching me lightly
Butterfly kisses

A really magical moment.

Passion Transcending

After re-reading an old poem I realised that it still fitted with my life and with me.  So, here I present my response to the poem ~ though I do not feel that it is appropriate to quote the poem here.

Passion Transcending  -  17 Dec 14

Once upon a moment
Hidden gestures
Secret whispers
All the miles
Private passions
Transcend distance
Make fairytales real
Happily everaftering
As the passion flows

It is amazing how fluid passion is and how well it flows.

Under The Cloak

A Love song with a little Lust song added for good measure.

Under The Cloak  -  16 Dec 14

Night wraps us
A cloak of stars
Diamonds in darkness
Light from the evening
Shines into the dawn
Reflects from star to star
We smile
Pull the cloak closer
And share a kiss
And more

These blends have a little more spice I feel.

Telling Me

A Love song about those Lovely Loving whispers.

Telling Me  -  15 Dec 14

Whispers in my dreams
You spoke to me
Told me how you knew
Let me know you cared

In the dreams
Whispering to each other
In the language of Love

You listened to me
As I shared your words

Our whispers in the night

We have all had and heard those whispers.

Five Thousand

Another of the "Five Thousand Miles" Love song series.

Five Thousand  -  14 Dec 14

Two Hearts beat together
Five thousand miles
Separate them
Love binds them

Whispers in the miles
Talk to us ~ talk from us
Miles are nothing
When Hearts
Share the secrets
Of Love

Miles are a small inconvenience when Love is the reality.

Forgotten Tomorrows

Another Love song with a reminder that the important time is NOW.

Forgotten Tomorrows  -  13 Dec 14

Holding the thoughts
Of us
All we do
In everything we do
Enjoying life
You and me
In every way
There are
Forgotten tomorrows
Because what we have

Now is everything and everywhen.

Forgotten Emotions

Barely recalled memories and emotions from times past.

Forgotten Emotions  -  12 Dec 14

Emotions wander through
Mind and body
The form of you
Still holds my attention
All I see
Is how happy we are
Old emotions of other people
Gladly forgotten

It is interesting how some people re-emerge, unwanted, in memories.

Holding You

One of those special little Love songs which carry a message.

Holding You  -  11 Dec 14

Feeling the special thoughts
As I whisper your name
Waiting for the answer
I know will come

Listening for you
I hold you close
You have a special place
Within my Heart and life

Just a special little message.

Wind Shadow

Another of the weather observations thankfully, like the others, I did not have to experience them at first hand.

Wind Shadow  -  10 Dec 14

Huddled in the lee
Hearing the wind
Loud sighing crying
Around me
Rain still fills the road
And with the wind
Slaps me

Just listening and watching through my window.

Soul Sees Me

A Love song with a deeper feel.

Soul Sees Me  -  09 Dec 14

Looking deep within your eyes
I see me looking at you
In my eyes I see Love
As I watch you
Shares the vision

Seeing the mirror.

Sunday, 14 December 2014

Hard Rain

Another observation of the weather which inspired a poem.

Hard Rain  -  08 Dec 14

Listening to the rain
Hissing on the roof
Hard sounds
Cast from an angry cloud
Hard rain

Rain and sleet seem to feature rather strongly at this time of year.

Saturday, 13 December 2014


Another Love song, I would say "plain and simple" but in Love there is nothing of the kind.

Bliss  -  07 Dec 14

Into bliss
You showed me how
Took my hand
To lead me
Into your Heart

The path well hidden
No one else could know
Would know
For it was a path
Just for me

Leading on
Further into your Love
Away from the world
To share your bliss
With me

Love is as complex as you care to make it but Bliss is always the result.

Dragon Nights

Another meeting with the Dragons.

Dragon Nights  -  07 Dec 14

Wings carry dreams
Through starlit realms
Across the silver Moon
Midnight holds no secrets
From the Dragon eye
As he watches
Through the night

They are everywhere ~ all you have to do is look.

Wishes We Grew

A Love song with a touch of history.

Wishes We Grew  -  06 Dec 14

Can you remember
That time before we met
When wishes were
All we had
And all we could hope
To fill our lives

We grew wishes
From unexpected seeds
Exchanging words
Suddenly we realised
That we were saying
More ~ much more

From simple beginnings
We discovered the foundations
Built upon them
Now we can look back
And ask
Can you remember

Can you remember the beginnings?

Wind Whip

A weather related observation.

Wind Whip  -  06 Dec 14

Wind whirls around
Trees dance
Restless movements
Rattle the door
Shake the windows
Fingertips chilled
The wind still sings
A mournful song
Cold day

I can still feel the wind.

Dark Mirror

Another Love song, this time with a little twist.

Dark Mirror  -  05 Dec 14

Dark mirror
Your beauty hidden
In the folds of night
Mirror reflects
What we want to see
Mirror’s dark mystery
Tries to hide
Your beauty
I want to see you
As you stand before me
Shining in the mirror
Your light
Shatters the dark

A little twist which shows what I am really looking at.

Winter Cold

Converting a simple event into a poem.

Winter Cold  -  04 Dec 14

Thin light of a cold day
Fades quickly
As the sun hides
First in cloud
Then below the horizon
Clouds draw a curtain
On a cold day

This seems to be a fairly normal thing at this time of year.

Another Love song for your enjoyment.

Jewel  -  03 Dec 14

Diamond in the night
Reflecting stars
Moonlight glimmer
Behind cloud
But never dimmed

Shines the jewel
In satin wrapped
Kept in my pocket
Bright as your Love
Never dimmed

Night’s jewels
Glow in your eyes
Shine from your Heart
Showing me
Your Love

Love shines brightly.

Saturday, 6 December 2014


Another experiment in structure.  The number of words in each line changes from the initial kisses till the next then the pattern is repeated providing a rhythm ~ like breathing or the movements of waves.

Something inspired by kisses.

Kisses  -  02 Dec 14

Sweetest keys
To unlock Hearts
Open them to Love
The greatest gift
Given freely
On hands
Gentle neck nuzzles
Raise the temperature now
Passion burn starting
Firing our

I, personally, like the effect.

A Love song with words to fill Hearts.

Speaking  -  01 Dec 14

She used words to me
Words that nobody
Had ever spoken to me
They flowed into me
Over me and touched me
In ways which flooded my senses
Filled my mind
Left me with a single thought
One word burned brightly

Hearts and minds.

Drifting {Ocean Symphony]

You may feel that a re-read of the poem "Drifting" posted on 30 Nov 14 may be used as a Prelude to this piece.  This  poem is constructed in a symphonic form so that four parts can be read together.

Drifting [Ocean Symphony}  -  30 Nov 14

I ~ Opening

Slow ~ with the waves
Feeling the gentle surge
Lift me
Spin me gently
Turn me to face the sun

II ~ Seaweed Forest

Mermaids dance around the fronds
Tails flow in myriad colours
Catch the rippling sun
Their song of enchantment
Opens Hearts to the beauty
Capturing the moment

III ~ Poseidon’s Gate

Pearl treasure
Ancient doors reflect the beauty
Inviting entry
A welcome within the coral halls
Written in crystal words
Of the aquamarine harmonies

IV ~ Home

Warm ~ kiss of the sun
Wet ~ the ocean’s kiss says secret Love
Dry ~ the sand beneath my feet Earth’s kiss
Hidden ~ a mermaid’s kiss
Remembered ~ held in mind the gifts
My Lover’s kiss to welcome me home

There is just a hint of Love song here too.

World Of Wonder

Another poem of Love song and Lust song.

World Of Wonder  -  29 Nov 14

Watching you move
Slowly circling me
Coquettish smile
Touches me everywhere

You have shown me
Your world and shown me
Wonders shine

In your smile a promise
The sparkle of your eyes
A secret gift
To be unwrapped in private

Imagining [Acrostic]

This poem is structured as an acrostic but, in feel, it is intentionally rather disjointed rather in the manner of a half-remembered dream.

Imagining [Acrostic]  -  28 Nov 14

In an open thought
Mountainous clouds tower
Air torn by lightning
Gems of ice scatter before the dawn
Inside a secret dream
Never told in waking moments
Imaging the imagination
Night smiles hold the secrets
Gifts in the dark

Watching the secrets unfold.

Soul Deep

A rather emotional Love song.

Soul Deep  -  27 Nov 14

Vision blurring your words
Paper damp from the Joy
You touched me deeply
More than I expected
Soul deep
Read your words
Heard your voice
Resonating in my Heart
Kissing my Soul
Loving me

Anyone who has ever been in Love will recognise the feelings.
