Night Dazed

Having been on stage [a long time ago] on a short run of six performances, I found this concept wandering around in my mind.

Night Dazed  -  11 May 15

On the dark night stage
We play our parts
Say our lines
Then withdraw
Into the daylight

Dazzled by the light
Forgetting the words
Playing the play
Pretending we know
What comes next

In the wings
Sheltered from extremes
But the play goes on
And we await the whispered

I do not recall that anyone actually said "cue" though ~ just left it up to the memory of the actors and actresses.

One Dream [Acrostic]

Another little addition to the acrostics.

One Dream [Acrostic]  -  09 May 15

Our moments together
Near our Hearts
Endlessly open

Days and nights
Resonate with magical
Always opening the way to
More dreams

I do enjoy the challenges posed by the acrostic structure.

Patterns are never fixed.

Patterns  -  08 May 15

Everything changes
Fingers comb the lines
Of destiny
Into new patterns
The shapes
Of the expected
Blur as the fingers
Move the patterns
Into new forms
Toys for the fingers
Games of everything

You can change the patterns with a fingertip touch.

Love Melts

Another of the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.

Love Melts  -  15 May 15

A Heartbeat
A kiss
A whisper
A word of Love
The five thousand miles
Melts away
And Love whispers
The words
Wrapped in Heartbeats
And a kiss lasts
An Eternity

I Love the way this sequence is developing.

Dream In Hand

A Love song with a simple, yet complex, theme.

Dream In Hand  -  03 May 15

Far away from
The city lights
I met you
With our dream
In my hands

You reached out
And touched
Our dream
Gave it strength
Empowered it

We kept our dream
Fully alive
Held it firmly
Between us
Within us

And so our dream
Grew and flowered
Filling our lives
Filling us
With Love

This is how Love is born, through dream held by two people.

Dawn Tales

Myths are born with the dawn.

Dawn Tales  -  02 Ma 15

I watch as you weave
The tales and the myths
The stories of the dawn
Inviting me to join
Remember with you
And breathe
The morning air
Filled with the secrets
The night left for us
To carry into the day
From the promise
Of the light of dawn

In the mists of dawn are the myths most clearly visible.

Riding With You

The second line says it all in this Love song.

Riding With You  -  01 May 15

Feeling the flow
The Love from you
Washes over me
Through me
Holding on
Letting Love
Take me
For a beautiful ride
With you

So Wonderful to feel the flow.

A little Love song saying how ...

Happened  -  30 Apr 15

Every step
Every decision
Every little event
In my life
Brought me to
Where I am now

If any one thing
Had been different
I would never
Have met you
It all happened
As it should

... paths couild be completely different if there were tiny changes.

Sunlight Warm

A Love song in and with the sun.

Sunlight Warm  -  28 Apr 15

Feeling the sunlight
Dripping from the branches
Enveloping me
In the warmth of your Love

You flow over me
Sunlight warm
Filling me completely
With every touch

Within me you glow
Brightly ~ warmly
Take my Soul to
Fly with yours

You give me your Love
I give you mine
Together we rise up
To meet the sun

Love and sunlight, lots of other good things with which to work but this is a good place to start.

Dragon Song

At those times when out walking and you become aware of an unexpected warmth to the air, you could be feeling a Dragon breathing.

Dragon Song  -  26 Apr 15

Dragons in the dawn mist
Heard but never seen
Their warm wet breath
Fills the air
Fills the hollows
I join with their song
Serenading the rising sun

Breathe with the Dragon and share the song.

Starlight Moments

A Love song with a hint of wistfulness.

Starlight Moments  -  25 Apr 15

A brief moment
Starlight scattered
Through my thoughts
Awakening the secret dreams
I have held of you
Calling you
To be with me
Through all my
Starlight moments

Thinking of you in the starlight.

Kissing The Tip

More observations today.

Kissing The Tip  -  24 Apr 15

Kissing the tip
Caressing sides
And down

Moist dripping
Feeling the flow
Covering completely

And then …

Low flying cloud on the hillside ~ what did you think I was writing about?

Moonlight Murmuring

A little murmured Love song.

Moonlight Murmuring  -  24 Apr 15

I hear your name
Called softly
In the moments
When the sea murmurs
In the Moonlight

A solitary violin
Softly sings a Love song
About our moments
As the Moon murmurs
Over the sea

Your name comes back
To me as I listen
You stand beside me
In the Moonlight
Sharing all our moments

I did wonder if the last line should be "Sharing all our murmurs" but somehow it did not quite fit into the pattern properly.

A Love song, one of my favourite genres.

Pulse  -  23 Apr 15

Rhythm of dream
In ways only a dream
Knows how
The pulse of Love
Works through dream
Works into waking time
Letting us feel
The rhythm everywhere
Feel my pulse
Match yours
In my dream and

Through Love songs I can explore nearly anywhere and anything.

Dark Silence

Lying in bed waiting for the touch of sleep to carry me off into dream.

Dark Silence  -  22 Apr 15

No voice to whisper me
To sleep
No lips to kiss my
Dreams awake
Awake in the night
Lying still
Hoping for the words
Soft lullaby
Longing for the brush
Of breath
To kiss my mind
Dreams await
And in the darkness
I await

The silence fills my mind.

Lux Aeterna [Acrostic]

A new acrostic for today.

Lux Aeterna [Acrostic]  -  22 Apr 15

Looking for something new
Universal search
Xenophile quest

Awash in the flow of
Eternal light
Takes us to higher realms
Endless roads leading on
Rivers of light
Night and day as one stream
All through Infinity

For those who do not know Latin, Lux Aeterna means "eternal light" and the spellchecker hates me even more now.

Long Way [ Long Dark I ]

This is the first poem in a projected series which is to be entitled "Long Dark" or something similar.  I intend to post the work-in-progress sequence as they arrive before offering the the final version ~ somewhen.

Long Way [ Long Dark I ]  -  22 Apr 15

I am a long way from home
Stars keep me company
Travelling hopefully
But I am on the wrong road
On the wrong side
And even the stars
Say no

I am not entirely certain where this sequence of poems is going to lead but I am a willing, hopeful traveller.

Surreptitious Watching

Just wondering what she is thinking.

Surreptitious Watching  -  21 Apr 15

Corner of my eye
I watch her
Watching me
If I move
She will know
That I have seen her
And I will lose
The feeling of Love
She sends to me
When she thinks
I am not watching
I wonder if she
Feels the same

Wondering if she is thinking what I am thinking.

Blue Whispers

Whispers come in many colours and from many sources, this is just one of the many.

Blue Whispers  -  20 Apr 15

The soft deep blue
Of predawn
Fills my eyes
Blue speaks of adventures
Yet to come
Hints of where they
May be found
A whisper from the sun
Stirs my thoughts
Tells me
He can light the way

The secrets which whispers bring are so Beautiful.

Sea Whispers

Whispers in a Love song.

Sea Whispers  -  19 Apr 15

Whispered in the grass
As we sat and watched
Sea rolling gently
Soft susurration
Carried to our ears
On the afternoon breeze

We whispered
To each other
With the sea as background
For us

Arms around each other
Wrapped in the sea whisper
Enfolded in our Love
Our lips shared our whisper
In a way which only Lovers
Know how

Shared with the sea.

The Singer

A poem echoing the histories we have all seen and lived through on our way to now.

The Singer  -  19 Apr 15

Her voice captivates
Her audience
Her beauty enriches
Hearts of listeners
Awakens happy memories
To elsewhere and

In an elder tongue
Wakes other memories
When we rode dragons
In the dark reaches
Of the night
With the stars
Seeking the dawn

Close your eyes and listen to the song, you will see that time.

Gleaming Dreams

From a thought which passed through my mind.

Gleaming Dreams  -  18 Apr 15

Thoughts drifting
Through a forest of dream
Touching branches
In passing leaving ideas
Fantastic flowers
Gleaming in the night air
Each flower
A thought waiting to bloom
Each blossom
Ready to birth another dream

Dreams are always ready to shine.

Worlds Meet

Without using the words, this is another of the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.

Worlds Meet  -  17 Apr 15

When other times and
Places coincide
We fill our cups
With the nectar of Love
Toast the joy of
Random connections
Indulge in the pleasure
Share the Love

Worlds meet
No matter the distance
Meeting is inevitable
Worlds kiss
Share the nectar

Come, journey with me.

A Love song today with a hint of something special.

Touching  -  15 Apr 15

You reached up
And touched a star
That one is for you
And smiled
You reached out
And touched me
That one is for me
And smiled
I rested a hand
On my Heart
I rested the other
On your Heart
This is for We
And we both smiled

Touching is good for so many reasons.

Dancing In The Past

Simply a Lust song today with roots in an event from many years ago ~ almost vanished in the mists of time.

Dancing In The Past  -  15 Apr 15

Dance with me
She said
I want to feel
Your body move
Standing in front
Of me she swayed
Watching my reaction
Feeling my reaction
Playing me
An instrument
In her hands
We danced

New dances have appeared, better ones.

Wings Of Jet

A little "limite surrĂ©aliste" inspired, for some reason, by a fairly well-known nursery rhyme.  I heard the words rolling round my mind and I realised there was more to be said.

Wings Of Jet  -  15 Apr 15

She shall have music
Nightfall shall not quiet
The singers
Wings of jet
Wrapped around the day
Wherever she goes
The ancient songs
Follow and follow again
Reeling around the day
Draw feathers in the dance
Ring of bells complete

For those who do not know the nursery rhyme ~

Ride a Cock Horse to Banbury Cross

Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross
To see a fine lady upon a white horse
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
She shall have music wherever she goes.

Beautiful Patterns

I am not certain where the sadness which inspired this poem came from but I feel that the imagery here is too good to waste.

Beautiful Patterns  -  15 Apr 15

Slow drops
Beautiful patterns
On a rain-soaked pavement
Tears fill the sky
Tears fill my eyes
Blurred vision
Beautiful patterns
Though I cannot see them
With my eyes

Sad but Beautiful.

Night Wisdom

A little bit of what could be called metaphysical thoughts.

Night Wisdom  -  14 Apr 15

In the wisdom
Of the night
When stars converse
The Moon keeps
Careful watch
Grants her thoughts
To guide us
Between suns

The Moon is always offering suggestions if we listen.

Sleeping In My Heart

Another Love song in the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.

Sleeping In My Heart  -  14 Apr 15

I watched you as you slept
Over the five thousand miles
I dreamed of you
Dreamed with you
Dreamed you
In the candlelit halls
Where our dreams are written
Building slowly
Into a reality for us
And the five thousand miles
Is but a footstep away

I feel that this is the best 5000 so far.

Saturday, 2 May 2015


A Love song with a touch of Lust song for fun.

Dreamworld  -  13 Apr 15

Touching me in dreamworld
Your hands met mine
Danced into the night
Dreamworld opens visions
Allows thoughts to fly
Pressed against me
We dance in the night
Dreamworld touches awake
Stirs feelings through us
Touching you in dreamworld
Our energies rise
Flood our wakeful night
With our light

Spellchecker does not like "Dreamworld", spellchecker does not like "spellchecker" either.  Oh well.

Winter Sky

A poem to celebrate the passage of winter into spring.

Winter Sky  -  12 Apr 15

Under the winter sky
We waited
Felt the new growth
Begin to stir within
As Earth melted

Winter grey faded
Into blue
The sun warmed us
Showed the coming days
Opened our eyes

Winter skies a memory
Only seen in the moments
Of rain
Passing through a day
Watering the flowers

An occasional winter grey is welcome to enhance the brightness of blue.
