Moonlight Walk

Playing in the Moonlight as we walk together.

Moonlight Walk  -  16 Jun 15

Imagination claims reality
Takes it for a walk
Along Moonlit beaches
With us
Waves glisten and the surf
Breaks with a soft murmur
Our thoughts entwined
Fingers linked
As the Moonlight takes us
Further along our path
To where our imaginations
Play a special game

Playing is always a good idea.

Another little Love song.

Distractions  -  04 Jun 15

Hearing a noisy child
~ What was I doing?
Reading a random word
~ What was I thinking?
Finding a bee on the window
~ What?

I remember
Drifting through the distractions
I return to my thoughts of you
Realising that you never left
And I never left you
We floated together through the

Interesting how distractions like to play with our thoughts.

Sleep Ambush

How many times have you felt this way too?

Sleep Ambush  -  13 Jun 15

Sleep comes creeping
Leaving signs
Across my mind
And face
Lace of eyelashes
Veils my vision
Till I close my eyes
Surrender to sleep

Sometimes you just have to give in.

A little Passion song and Lust  song.

Hunger  -   12 Jun 15

I touch your natural scent
I taste you
Devour your essence
Hungry for you
You fed my desire
Left me craving more

I do not know what else to say.

Dawn Dance

This was written just before the New Moon but the feelings are still very much present.

Dawn Dance  -  11 Jun 15

In the peace of before dawn
Soft gentle birdsong
Welcoming the sun

The eastern sky
Holds the dancing Moon
Anticipating his arrival

Soon my Love
We shall share our kisses
To warm each other

Need I say that this is another Love song?

Painted Wings

A little slightly "limite surréaliste" thank you to my Angel.

Painted Wings  - 10 Jun 15

Painted on the wings
Birds preen
My Angel spreads
Her wings
Lifts me
Her Heart
Holds me and keeps me safe
Painted wings
Reflect the sun

My Angel knows who she is.

Shadow Birds

Looking from my window I was aware of a flock of birds.

Shadow Birds  -  09 Jun 15

Winds carry feathers
Birds fly East
Their shadows follow
Along the ground
Trying to catch up
Always close
Even though they have
Further to go

There seemed to be a race taking place.

Gently, Softly

Gently, softly my Love and Lust song fills me.

Gently, Softly  -  08 Jun 15

Whispers in my ears
Gently tousling my hair
Leading me to the river
To listen to the water song
Carrying my awake dream
To where you lie
Sharing gently
Softly whispering my name

I hope it fills you too.

Words Of A Dream

Words and thoughts mingle in dream...

Words Of A Dream  -  07 Jun 15

Between the dreams
Of the words
Spoken in a wish
Woven in thought
Lay the desires
Hatched in the night
Within our breaths
Whispered poem
Wraps around us
Waiting for the moment
To breathe

... and the dreams grow.

Sunday, 21 June 2015


Interesting how memories can shape dream.

Gallery  -  06 Jun 15

Pictures in the night
Painted on the walls
Of dream
By a rampant memory
Chains hold the images
Upon the walls
Eternally playing out
The tiny drama
Across the gallery
As dream melds
With dream

Dreams can shape the future.

Orphaned Thoughts

How many times have we discovered these thoughts wandering out there somewhere?

Orphaned Thoughts  -  05 Jun 15

Mumbling in the dark
Words slip out unnoticed
To wander in the night
Orphaned thoughts
Sometimes in the woods
Where they hide
They breed and form
Unexpected sentences
To puzzle the poets

Sometimes it is best to gather them gently and offer them a home in a poem or two.

Sunset Fires

Another Love and Lust song.

Sunset Fires  -  03 Jun 15

The sun kissed the ocean
Horizon caught the fire
Our lips met and shared
The fires
Love caught light
And the fires grew

Perhaps that should read Lust and Love song.

Forest Magic

Magic in a forest at night.

Forest Magic  -  02 Jun 15

Forest at night
Listening to the Moonsong
Filtering through the leaves

Full Moon sings
Our dreams
Into the world

We take a handful of stars
Fill them with our Love
Release them before dawn

Each carries Love
From us to the Universe
Sharing and returning

It is interesting that this poem is being posted just after New Moon, the magic is always present.

Dark June

This was written on the first day of the month and, contrary to weather lore it was not "flaming June".

Dark June  -  01 Jun 15

No fractured ray
Of sunshine
To break between
The raindrops
Incessant sound
Of dripping
Outside my window
Cold day
Dark June
Tells dark tales
Into the night

The weather gods Love playing their little jokes.

Rainbows Playing

Another weather observation even though there were no rainbows to be seen.

Rainbows Playing  -  31 May 15

Sun dances
With the shadow
Of the rain
Rainbows glimpsed
Between the fleeting cloud
Not long lasting but
Waiting for the next shower
Playing in the warmth
Watching the clouds

I was able to see the rainbows in my mind though.

A little token of Love.

Token  -  29 May 15

In my pocket
Something you gave
To me
To tell me of your Love
For me
A token of you
Since I cannot carry
Except in my Heart

Received with Joy.

I do not think that I can make any comments or add anything to this poem ~ I shall just let you wander through it and see what you find.

Finding  -  28 May 15

Images Trouvées
[ found images ]

While leafing through
Old magazines
The pictures
Snare my eyes
I harvest them for
A private collection
To inspire

Objets Trouvés
[ found objects ]

Walking the streets
At night
Past discarded things
Abandoned by their owners
Dumped in rubbish skips
Though sometimes
Still useful

Pensées Trouvés
[ found thoughts ]

Sitting on a rock
On the beach
At the sea
Forgotten shells
Out-grown by their owners
Now sharing space
With the tiny crystals
Memories of times past

Je t'ai trouvé
[ found you ]

Wandering through my mind
Uncovering unexpected thoughts
You looked at me
Said hello
Joined my life

Inspiration gathered from so many times and places in my memory.

Moments Passing

Inspired by events observed and then embroidered upon.  Walking by the stream to collect drinking water I saw a cockerel in a neighbouring garden and the poem just grew from that point.

Moments Passing  -  27 May 15

Between one moment
And the next
A distant church bell
Calls the hour
Rooster instructs
His harem
To beware of strangers
And the stream
Sings a gentle song
Moments passing

And the stream sang a Lovely song.

Night Mist

Another poem inspired by observation, both visual and tactile, in the night.

Night Mist  -  24 May 15

Feeling the gentle caress
Of the night mists
On my face as I drift
Into sleep
Open window
Allows the mist
To wander through my
Cloaking me in the peace
Of night
Sleep caresses
Till dawn

I Love the feelings I get in the night.

Kiss Of Cloud

Another one of the little secret, though always tangible, messages.

Kiss Of Cloud  -  25 May 15

A kiss of cloud
From an invisible sky
Hidden Moon
Follows the sun into night
Soft Starsong
Remembered from other days
Held in the kiss

When these are secret they always seem to be more powerful.

Thank You

Just a little message for someone really special.

Thank You  -  23 May 15

For holding me
In times of doubt
For giving me
The strength to rise
And be me
For sharing your Love
With me
The words thank you
Seem so inadequate
But they are all I have
Thank you

Thank you ~ you know who you are.

Dark Caresses

Another little touch of velvet to raise the senses.

Dark Caresses  -  22 May 15

Caressing the dark
Velvet waves
Passing over

Caressed by the dark
Velvet gloves
Passing over

Caressed by whispers
Gentle velvet words
Filling ears and mind
Sliding into dark corners
Lighting them with Love

Caresses are always good.

Moon Wishes

I really do not know which category to list this poem under except "Moon".

Moon Wishes  -  21 May 15

Moon dancing
In the dark of Moon
Gathering wishes
In a silver basket
Dancer makes the light
Shows the way to
The treasures
Of the sleeping world
Guarded by
Star Souls
Through the night

Then again, Moon is always a good place for everything.

Rain Dance

A little Lust song today.

Rain Dance  -  20 May 15

Dancing in the rain
Sensuous flow
Cool against warm skin
Passion rises in the flood
Naked desires growing
We link
Warm touch cool rain
Pleasing contradictions

Quite a while since a Lust song has appeared here.

Weather Bells

Once again, a poem inspired by observation in both sight and sound.

Weather Bells  -  18 Mar 15

Brush stroked
Across the paint
Dips watercolour grey
On my window
I look out
On the glass
To watch the drops
Grey on grey
Fill the puddles

In case you do not know "tintinnabulation" is a descriptive word relating to the sound of bells.

From a fertile imagination comes this little offering.

Imaginary  -  17 May 5

Imaginary poets
Scribe their lines
With ink and quill
On virgin paper

Imaginary poems
Voiced in broken rhyme
Kissed in dream
By a maiden fair

Virgins sign the paper
With invisible ink
Claim the poems
As their own

Imaginary virgins
Sketched on dragon back
By a poet
In his sleep

Have we not created Dragons and virgins [they could be male too] to populate our secret worlds and poems?

Shameless Love

In Love there is no shame.

Shameless Love  -  15 May 15

You painted words
Across the sky
For me to read
Even though
You knew
That everybody
Would be able
To see and read
There is no shame
In our Love
Let them read
They might get

Really, there is no shame.

Autobiographical?  You could say that [said he grinning] but it could apply to anybody in a good relationship.

Dizzy  -  15 May 15

You took me
Turned my life
Into a dizzy dance
With every thought
And little touch

I took you
Lifted you higher
Higher still
Took your days
Into a dizzy flight

We took us
Into a new world
A new reality
Where we could enjoy

Good relationships are so dizzying in a really Lovely way.

A Metaphysical journey through the realms.

Travelling  -  13 May 15

In a grey space
Where neither
Light nor dark
Holds sway
I journey
I walk a line between
Grey and grey
Each footstep
I leave
Is light
Travelling on
I leave light
In my wake

This is a journey we all make, in some way or at some time in our times.

Candle Flicker

This was born out of a memory of a candlelit room.

Candle Flicker  -  12 May 15

Single flame
Lights our world
Flickering softly
Dance lightly
Across the wall
Animating dark
Moving with
The flame dance
As it

The way the shadows danced showed that they had a life of their own.
