Waiting For Rain

Watching and waiting for the tendrils of rain ~ which never happened.

Waiting For Rain  -  23 Jul 15

Slow movements
Cloud builds through the day
Late evening thunder
Mutters in the distance
Promised rain
Holds the promise
Teasing with noisy cloud

It would have been good for some rain to fall and even better for a plasma storm too.

Sometimes [Acrostic]

Another foray into the realm of the acrostic poems.
This is also part of the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence even though it does not use the actual words.

Sometimes [Acrostic]  -  22 Jul 15

Stretching into the night
Over the ocean dark
Marbled clouds across
Eternity are strewn
Timeless wishes
Infinity’s dreams
Miles upon miles
Endless journeying
Somewhen we shall meet

I really like the challenge of forming a poem within the constraints of an acrostic.

Honeysuckle Dream

Another perfume filled floral Love song.

Honeysuckle Dream  -  21 Jul 15

Unexpected dream
You called to me
My sleeping mind
Answered you
We watched the Moon
Rise wrapped in
The perfume of
Honeysuckle flowers

I Love the scent of Honeysuckle.

Moon Dances

Inspired by an early morning sighting of the Moon and a more recent one of her New phase just after sunset, this poem was birthed.

Moon Dances  -  20 Jul 15

Wrapped around New
Moon dances
Shows off her beauty
Always looking
Toward her Lover
Watching him
In their graceful

It is Lovely to watch the dance.

Moments Of Love

One of those little Love songs which mean so  much and carry so much feeling.

Moments Of Love  -  19 Jul 15

In all the moments
I have shared with you
None are more important
Than when we first said
I Love you

A kiss in the night
Special promises
Underline the unspoken
Vow we made when we said
I Love you

Wonderful how three words can mean so much.

Ocean's Blessing

A small Love song today after the rather heavy offerings of the last two days.

Ocean's Blessing  -  17 Jul 15

Hand in hand
Along the misty shore
Watching gentle waves
Break near our feet
Ocean’s blessing

Barefoot on the sand along the water's edge ~ Lovely.

Memory Abandoned

Within minutes of "Memory Reawakened" [the offering yesterday] being written on my phone this poem wanted to be written.

Memory Abandoned  -  16 Jul 15

Marked the spot
But now
Only a faded
Chalk cross remains
To show
Where dreams lived
For a short time
Before being abandoned

The two poems form a pair.

Memory Reawakened

I was lying in bed awaiting sleep when I heard the jackdaws greeting the dawn, these words then crawled into my mind, a memory of times long past.

Memory Reawakened  -  16 Jul 15

Jackdaw wings
Fan black images
Into the morning air
Call an aged memory
To the surface again
I remember
Hot summer days
Now ended
The memory should not
Be awakened
But still it slumbers

I am grateful for a phone which has the ability to capture poems when they want to be formed.

Change Wind

The winds of change can make wonderful differences in our lives.

Change Wind  -  15 Jul 15

Windswept memories
Shaped by the dance
Of the winds of change
Dust shaken loose
From the cobwebs
Blanketing my mind
Vortex whirls
Around me to shake
My dreams loose

I know because my life changed because of them.

Afternoon Dreaming

All good dreams, start at any time and sometimes finish in the afternoon.

Afternoon Dreaming  -  13 Jul 15

Dreaming in an afternoon
Like any other
We are together
In our own world
Beyond the reach of others
In that special place
Hold Eternity in our dream
Play and
Dream more

And sometimes just continue on forever.

Night Movement

A little sensuous feeling in the night.

Night Movement  -  12 Jul 15

In a velvet room
Wrapped in satin
Coloured by shades
Of the cool night air
Cocooned in comfort
As Love moves
Around us and fills us

Those subtle touches.

Love In Dark

I Love little Love songs.

Love In Dark  -  11 Jul 15

In the dark
Your whispers
Caress my mind
Warm my Soul
Tell me
How much you Love me

All Love songs are good but the little ones have more impact I feel.

Singularity [Acrostic]

Another acrostic for your delight today.

Singularity [Acrostic]  -  09 Jul 15

Stars sing
Incant ancient melodies
Night whispers
Gentle words of Love
United with the energy
Linked with our thoughts
Always held
Ringed with the power
Intrinsic in our world
The singularity holds us
Yesterday holds the dream

Not a black hole but the attraction is just as powerful.

A new addition to the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.

Princess  -  08 Jul 15

She said she was
A princess
In a far-off land
She told me tales
About her country
Five thousand miles
Her quest for a consort
To share her life
And share her Love

I rather like the way these are going.

Crow Serenade

Hearing the song caused this poem to come into being.

Crow Serenade  -  05 Jul 15

Crows call
Serenade the predawn
Curtains of colour

Hint of sun
Highlight wings
Iridescent feathers

Chorus of birds
Sing out to join
Crow serenade

Interesting how the dawn chorus seems to be initiated by one species before the rest join in.

Midsummer Moon

Inspired by the time of year and by the idea of a special dream of midsummer, this poem was biirthed.

Midsummer Moon  -  04 Jul 15

Midsummer night’s Moon
With Love’s light
Two Lovers wrapped
With the light
Watching the circling stars
Skyborne fireflies
Dancing for us

A special dream of someone special.

Wednesday, 15 July 2015


The brightness of the summer night sky has been witnessed by myself and commented upon by some others.

Anticipation  -  02 Jul 15

In the glow of nightfall
Summer days never
Really end
Sky still pale
Long after sunset
Of a new dawn

It has an almost magical feel.

Tuesday, 14 July 2015


Another experiment with structure, a poem built using one word on each line.

Evolving  -  01 Jul 15


I think it works.

Warm Evening

I can think of nothing to say to introduce this poem, please read and comment perhaps.

Warm Evening  -  30 Jun 15

Warm evening
Sun has sat
Stars beginning to show
Fragrant night air

Our hands linked
Fingers interlaced
In our special smile
Mentally we kiss
As we walk

Out at sea
Ships and lighthouses
Dancing with the stars
Whirling through the night
For us

A mental *happy sigh* from me.

Alluring, Luring

A little Sensuous poem fot the offering today.

Alluring, Luring  -  29 Jun 15

So close
I could smell her
Alluring scent
Still tempting me
Her whispered offers
Dangling temptations

Breathe deeply.

Saturday, 11 July 2015

Secret Place

A secret playing space created just for us.

Secret Place  -  28 Jun 15

Darkness shrouds
The special secret place
That no one but us
Knows or can find
The place where our Love
Can play
And create new games
For us

Just for us.

Other Side

Another poem in the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.

Other Side  -  27 Jun 15

The other side of sunset
Unexpected colours
Illuminate the way
Five thousand miles
Sounds so far
And yet
Distant yet together
We watch
In our world
In our dream
Another sunrise

I rather like these long-distance stories.

Thursday, 9 July 2015


Another of my "thank you" type of poems.

Manifest  -  25 Jun 15

Being with you
In my dream
Hoped for feelings
Between us
Through us
My dream became
Our dream
Being together

Because ~ thank you.

Dragon Dawn

A short poem today holding a wish for a journey.

Dragon Dawn  -  25 Jun 15

Let us ride our Dragons
Fly past the setting sun
Into the place where
A new dawn awaits

Flying with you.

Love's Waves

A little message of support...

Love's Waves  -  23 Jun 13

Think that
I shall always be
With you in all things
Whenever you do not
Expect a hand
Reaching out
Lift you
And help you
Keep your equilibrium steady
My Love’s waves wrap you
I know I shall
Always be with
You because

...for someone really special.

Pomme d'Amour

Another chance sighting, this time of what was to be the title line, brought this poem into being.

Pomme d'Amour  -  22 Jun 15

I give you an apple
My Love
As a token of my Love
For you
One bite each and
The juice
Flows to fill
Our mouths
And to fill
Our senses

Why it was ever thought that a tomato was a Love apple will probably always be a mystery.

Noctilucent [Acrostic]

Another offering from the acrostic series of poems.

Noctilucent [Acrostic]  -  21 Jun 15

Night shining for us
Over our thoughts
Clouds bearing dreams
Throughout the empty sky
Illuminate our secret wishes
Love waits for us
Under the blanket of gentle light
Caressed by the light
Enticing and inviting
Nocturnal wishes
Taste the wild dream

Noctilucent roughly means night shining in Latin. They are clouds which most commonly observed in the summer months at latitudes between 50° and 70° north and south of the equator

Fog Hides

Another weather observation poem because of a full day of "low-flying cloud", anywhere else it would be called fog or mist.

Fog Hides  -  20 Jun 15

Fog in night
Fog in day
Dark grey
Light grey
Colours washed away
Memory says
Blue here
Green here
But all are hidden
In the fog

The cloud does not have the lift so it bumps into the land.

Numinous [Acrostic]

Another little poem playing with words in acrostic form.

Numinous [Acrostic]  -  19 Jun 15

New views of the world
Understanding what we see
Mystical thoughts
Inspire insight into everywhen
Never a doubt
Otherwhen holds us
Unveiling normal convention
Surrounded by Spirit

Meaning ~ having a strong religious or spiritual quality; indicating or suggesting the presence of a divinity

Thursday, 2 July 2015


How many times have I witnessed this debate.

Debate  -  18 Jun 15

Tells the eyes to close
Says that there is more to do
Comfort questions what
Winning the debate

And, just sometimes, sleep does not win.

Kisses Open

A rather special Love song with a hint of sensuality.

Kisses Open  -  17 Jun 15

Gentle kisses
Laid on each eyelid
Opens my inner eyes
To the beauty of you
Your kisses
Always open me
To your Love

I Love seeing with ALL my eyes.
