An actual observation invited me to build a poem around it and so . . . 

Pendulum  -  11 Apr 15

Pendulum marks
Interval between departures
Sparrows feed at the tube
Of seeds
Hanging from a branch
Sudden scare
Sparrows fly to cover
Pendulum counts

. . . swinging from a branch.

Lasting Memories

Just a pure Love song is an offering today.

Lasting Memories  -  10 Apr 15

Fading moments
Of a welcome day
Memories will linger
Never fading
Always lasting because
The Love you share
Will always keep me warm
Our passions

Written on my Birthday for someone really special.

Songs Of Ages Past

A song which comes from the Dreamtime ~ the Spirit time before time.

Songs Of Ages Past  -  09 Apr 15

And who will sing
The songs of ancient times
Or tell the tales
That made our grandmothers
Smile in the night

Sitting in silence
Waiting for the songs
Grandmother whispered
These songs were old
Long before I heard them

Songs from the dawn
Recalled in our dreams
Earth heard them
When waves kissed the shore
And the wind sang along

At least, this is my personal interpretation of Dreamtime and where our dreams and legends are born.

Unexpected Hue

A new limite surréaliste poem which grew out of the change of months in the year.

Unexpected Hue  -  08 Apr 15

Hues of the unexpected
Colour shifting
Lavender kisses sound
March wishes danced
On April’s bed
In the prelude to summer
Her chorus
Dangles in the mind
Painted with an autumn

Unexpected words

Expected things are often not as anticipated ~ which adds a real interest to life.

A small poem with a fantasy touch.

Shine  -  08 Apr 15

Clouds hanging
From a star filled ceiling
When the sun forgot
To shine
Fireflies took over
To light our way

Love to have a room like this one.

Going Back

Going back to what was and realising that what is, is so much more fun.

Going Back  -  08 Apr 15

Going back
Things were simpler then
Nothing to distract
One step after another
Nothing unexpected

Going back
Is it worth it?
To step away from
What is now to what was
Is it?

Going back
To now and you
Ever moving through our times
Together in our

Stay here and grow with me.

A poem which was inspired by writing Love songs ~ one of the Loveliest occupations I know.

Writing  -  07 Apr 15

I wrote me
Into your life
With a few words
Love poetry
Songs which spoke
Directly to your Soul

You wrote me
Into your life
As you sketched
A poem in a few lines
The lines which
Burned in my Soul

We wrote
An Eternal song
Words taken from
The whole of time
Just to be shaped
For us by us

Writing Love songs ARE fun.

Fearless Lips

A Love song which seems to be unfinished though it leaves so much room for the adventure.

Fearless Lips  -  07 Apr 15

Fearless lips
Across my cheeks
Left a trail of kisses
Sang a soft song
To the sun
Ballad whispered
To take us both

Going on the adventure?

Moon Sharing

This poem has quite a strong element of "limite surréaliste" to it, I cannot recall what inspired it apart from seeing the Moon.

Moon Sharing  -  05 Apr 15

She watches patiently waits
For a sign
To say

Sharing her dream with us
Dream sign

Sharing a Moon moment
Night image

Being a Lunatic is FUN.

Secret Whispers

Another Love song, just a bit deeper than most.

Secret Whispers  -  05 Apr 15

Secret whispers
Love flows through me
From a word
Heard from your lips
In the moment
When passion flavours
Every touch

Word upon word
Building a palace
To hold our Love
Thought upon thought
Builds the Love
Tenderly formed
We have

Secret whispers
Only for us
Words to bind us
In Love
Silken threads
Held by our Hearts
For Eternity

The deeper the Love song the deeper the Love.

Moon Robes

Queen or, perhaps, Empress of the Night rules with Love.

Moon Robes  ~  04 Apr 15

Clothed in silver
Light glistens
In your hair
You wear the Moon well

In one hand
The orb of night
Filled with stars
Beacons to light your way

The other holds the sceptre
Luna magic
White gold keeping
The mysteries growing

In your Heart
Your Love
Holds me
Willing captive

. . . and I was not talking about the Moon.

Looking Into

I cannot say too much without giving away the "plot" of the poem.

Looking Into  -  02 Apr 15

Ancient mysteries
Unfolded from a library
Scrolls on shelves
For centuries
The folded parchment
Still soft
Belies the age
Wrapped within
Still fresh
You knew me then
While looking into
You know me now

You have always known me.

Three Touches Now

Not entirely certain if this poem should be designated a "limite surréaliste" even though it has some characteristics of that genre.  Whatever, it is a Love song anyway.

Three Touches Now  -  01 Apr 15

Dark night stars
Blinking between cloud
Watching me through
Black on black
Remembered eyes glow
Each touch warm
With kisses embroidered
We share three
Touches of Love
Now and forever

A Love song is in a category of its own, it is a category in itself.

Twin Pools

Another Love song with no added flavouring ~ just more Love.

Twin Pools  -  01 Apr 15

Lost in the flow
You hold me
In ways I never expected
Your gentle touch
Guides me to your Heart

Your hold
So sweet ~ so tender
I feel your Love
Flowing into me always
Filling me with you

Twin pools of your eyes
Promise of you
I ride the tide
With anticipation
To reach you

Love ~ one of the world's greatest spices.

Raven Song

A Love song with a little twist to it.

Raven Song  -  01 Apr 15

Raven song
Dreams of dark wings
Carried on the night wind
To dance with my mind
In endless nights

Words never forgotten
You sang them to me
Every time we met
In our dreams
And ravens joined the chorus

Endless nights
With ravens whispering
The words of their songs
Wrapping our dreams
In their dark wings

Ravens whisper as they watch us.

This poem could be included in the "limite surréaliste" sequence and, before you ask, that is not a typo in the title line.

Noonbeams  -  31 Mar 15

Sketch the Moon
From memory
Filling in details
As I go
Shadow of the sun
Cast on my face
Leaving the raindrops
Of noon to dampen
My thoughts
In the light of the Moon
Daylight nights
Shaving images
Of the savings
Times in the Moon

Playing with words and thoughts is so much fun.

Perfume Pictures

Just a hint of "limite surréaliste" to add a little twist to a Love song.

Perfume Pictures  -  31 Mar 15

Subtle perfume
Paints an image
Shows me who you are
Where you are
When you are
Tells me you are
So I can connect
And become
We Am
For the rest of our

Guess the question now is ~ when are we?

Night Wind

Just a small poem today inspired by an observation in the night.

Night Wind  -  31 Mar 15

Torn cloud
Tousles Selene’s hair
As she dances across
The night
To hide from
The dawn

Moon dancing, such a Lovely sight.

Images Appear

A little selection of poems, with a hint of Love song held within.  The first is a Senryū, the second a Tanka and the third a modern Haikū.

Images Appearing  -  30 Mar 15

Cascading image
Memories echoing on
Across time to now

Just wanted to see
Time will show me images
Pictured memory
Painted on the canvasses
We carry with us always

Carried in my pocket
Your photograph kept warm
Heart heat

All linked by the theme of images or pictures.  I hope you like them.

Blanket Of Dream

A pure Love song with just the lightest touch of Lust song to add a little fire on the tongue.

Blanket Of Dream  -  29 Mar 15

Blanket of dream
Wrapped tightly
Around me
Through the night
And through the days
Filling me with visions
And warmth from
You holding me

I Love the effect spices have.

Woven Kisses

A subtle Love song with more than just a hint of limite surréaliste to add a little more flavour.

Woven Kisses  -  29 Mar 15

A long when ago
Where fairytales
Were formed
Stolen kisses
Wrapped in dream
Woven for us

A blanket
Of a new day
Just for us
To live again
Into a new when
And again

 I Love the added flavours.

Heart Scribed

A Love song, in a way it is a duet in feel.

Heart Scribed  -  29 Mar 15

You wrote your words
Of Love
On my Heart
For me to read
Whenever I wanted

And the song you sang
Told of Love Eternal
Fitted with the rhythm
Of our Heartbeats
And we sang together

Love duets are always better ~ even if you have to write them yourself.

Allowing . . .

Just a little statement of how Love works.

Allowing . . .   -  28 Mar 15

A hidden wish
Kept private
To allow for growth
To allow for
Intimate conversation
Between the lines
Which others can see
Whispered Love songs
Meant only for us
To hear and see
Now let us whisper
Our hidden wishes

Whispers of wishes.

Lonely Place

This poem came about because of a failed connection in communication, messages just did not appear when they should.

Lonely Place  -  28 Mar 15

Is a lonely place
When I am expecting
A Love song
From a special person
And we cannot connect

Is unwelcome
In a dark place
When Love
Is expected
But does not appear

In all the lonely places
Nobody to see the pain
Of the silence
In the lonely dark

Communication was restored but the poem had been birthed and I am pleased with the result even though the content is rather sad.

Blue Moon

Another Love song, with a slight fantasy touch.

Blue Moon  -  27 Mar 15

Days in fires
Ignite our dreams
Take them for a walk
Through mystic woodlands
Where the Moon
Whispers our names
Kisses them together

Just a dream?

Easy to think
But a blue Moon
Is not such a rare happening
Blue Moon happens
Every day

Feeling the beauty of blue Moon.

Moon In Eclipse

Today the post is again slightly out of creation sequence so that it will be relevant to the Lunar Eclipse on 03 Apr 15.

Moon In Eclipse  -  03 Apr 15

Behold the speckled Moon
Bleeding softly in the night
Menstrual Moon
When time is right
Earth hides her
From the Sun
Allows her time
For her time
Earth curtain
Drawn aside
Moon smiles sweetly

This was a "Blood Moon" which is caused when sunlight is refracted by Earth's atmosphere to shine on the Moon.  Only the red end of the spectrum actually gets to the Moon thus making her seem to be red.

Night Chill

It was rather cool that night and I felt that commemorating it with a poem would be good.

Night Chill  -  26 Mar 15

Afternoon gone
Evening faded
Night closes in with chill
… Breath
No stars
Breathing cloud
In the streets
Leaving signs of life
Footsteps lost among
Whispering trees
Frost threatens
Breath paints crystals
In the air

I did not actually go out that evening but could feel the chill through my [closed] window.

Calling Me

I hear your call . . .

Calling Me  -  25 Mar 15

In faraway dreams
I could see you
Hear your voice
Calling me
Back to you
Back home

Slow movements
Welcome me back
Dreaming no more
Standing on your shore
I remember
I remember you

In your warm embrace
I have never been away
From you
Dream touches reality
I kiss your song
I return to you

. . . and I answer.

No Afterglow

A little Love song to show how powerful Love is . . .

No Afterglow  -  25 Mar 15

In the flow
Of your Love
For me there is
No afterglow
The fires never stop

Infinity in every moment
Serves only to remind
That in Love’s flow
Flame burns bright
And there is
No afterglow

. . . and reminding that Love is always.

Eyes Smile

Another little Love song ~ seeing something special.

Eyes Smile  -  24 Mar 15

In her eyes
I see the smiles
The gentle smiles
Which tell
Of her Love

I hear the whispers
Of the unspoken words
Carried on the smiles
She shares with me
In our moments

Deep within her eyes
I see more
The smiles are an echo
Of what we share
In our wordless songs

There is always something special in Love.
