Written By Lovers

Remembering the beach.

Written By Lovers  -  22 Aug 15

On the sands
Four footprints
Walked together
Writing a story
Which could be read
By Lovers

Pauses in the pattern
Told of kisses shared
In the manuscript

Though this never happened for me.

Darkening Hours

Sitting and watching the way some of the political war-games are playing out caused this poem to be birthed.

Darkening Hours  -  21 Aug 15

Watching the way
Some people
Play their strange
Little games

In the distance
Sabres rattling
Play a tune

Perhaps they think
It is a battle hymn
More like a battle dirge

Now the hours
Wrap around us
A dark shroud
To take us all
Into the night

Not a poem to enjoy but it really wanted to be written.

Offered Kisses

Those special moments which form into a reality.

Offered Kisses  -  20 Aug 15

Moments in a dream
You came to me
Offered kisses
Moments of a dream
We wrapped with each other
Offered we
Moments from a dream
Kisses grew into more
We became more
Moments out of a dream
We took them
Watched them grow

Dream into reality ~ Lovely.

Breathing You

A sensuous Love song with just a hint of "Five Thousand Miles" in the mix.

Breathing You  -  19 Aug 15

I breathe you
Take you in
Feel me filling
With you

Love tastes sweet
As you offer
Little drops
For me to smell

Spending all my time
In your world
Enjoying myself
Breathing you

Almost a Lust song too.

Wishing Away

A new addition to the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence but which does not use the actual words.

Wishing Away  -  18 Aug 15

If only
Plaintive sigh
Distance is the only
Thing which separates
Keeps us apart
Wishing away
The space between

The feeling is all that is needed.

How do I get to where you are?

Directions  -  17 Aug 15

East of the clouds
Darkness falls
Stars begin the nightly
Honouring the passing
Of the sun

West of the sunset
Chasing the Moon
In her monthly circles
Around the earth
Oceans deep
A watery path

To you

These are some of the directions.

Wandering through the evening ~ exploring.

Twilight  -  16 Aug 15

Warm twilight
Evening slips away
Calling me


Stars in the east
Glimmer into life
New worlds call


Twilight hides
My footsteps
Silence holds them

Before anybody asks, this poem has absolutely nothing to do with a book and movie series of similar name.

Songs Remember

This all came about when my mind kept remembering old songs and playing them from my memory.

Songs Remember  -  15 Aug 15

Soft sweet songs
Still sung
In the halls
Of my memory

Songs of Love
Songs of loss
Loves which might
Have been now gone

In amongst the old songs
Fragments of a new one
Coming together forming
New memories

The idea that memory could create and form new songs for me to sing was rather appealing.

Memories Of The Road

One of those images which crawled up out of my memory.

Memories Of The Road  -  14 Aug 15

On the long road
From the sea
Memories come
To greet me
Old long lost friends
Share the past
From the past
Ghosts of memories
Still haunt
Pretending to be real
They walk beside me
Whispering their stories

Interesting how things which are thought to be long-forgotten suddenly present themselves for inspection again.

Wind Dancing

After the rain ...

Wind Dancing  -  13 Aug 15

Along the branch
Crystal lenses
Dance to the rhythm
Of the wind

Listen to the song
Of the rain
Dance along
With the wind

... we all dance.

Always There

A simple statement of fact.

Always There  -  13 Aug 15

You held me
In a way
Which left no doubts
Though I felt none
Lovely to get confirmation
Lovely to know
You are always there
In me
With me
Always there

It is always Lovely to get confirmation.

Watching Dawn

A new addition to the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.  There will be more before too long.

Watching Dawn  -  12 Aug 15

Dawn tells me
Of a land so far away
It takes her
Hours to get there

You and I
Have a different view
Five thousand miles
Melts away

In the cool morning
We sit and watch
The dawn

I Love the way this sequence comes and asks to be written.

Night Dæmons

The hints and feelings ...

Night Dæmons  -  11 Aug 15

In the air
Foretellings of a storm
Surreptitious whispers
The night dæmons
Who walk
On legs of plasma light

... of something which did not happen.

Waking Dream

I have lots of dusty corners.

Waking Dream  -  10 Aug 15

In a dusty cobwebbed
Corner where forgotten dreams
One dream stirs
Looking for someone
Who believes
That dreams do come true

Waking the dream.

Secrets For Us

All the Lovely places.

Secrets For Us  -  09 Aug 15

I closed my eyes
For a moment
You were there
You always were
Smiling because you knew
All the secret places
Where we could go
To be alone together

Alone together ~ a Lovely place to be.

Magic Folds

This is a continuation of the sensuous theme of poems.

Magic Folds  -  08 Aug 15

The dream sucked me in
Wrapped me in the folds
Of magic
Soft satin waves
Lap around me
The lips of desire
Kissed the edges
Of the dream

Sensuous and slightly lusty too.

Temptress [Acrostic]

A rather sensuous acrostic poem this time.

Temptress [Acrostic]  -  07 Aug 15

Teasing glances
Enigmatic smile
Meaning sometimes hidden in
Plain sight
Temptress claims her subject
Running her fingertips
Endlessly across his
Secret assignation awaits

Hope you like it.

Waking Sleeping

One of those mornings when at least two versions of reality are valid at the same time.

Waking Sleeping  -  06 Aug 15

In a
Waking sleeping
Not certain which
Or which direction
I am looking
You visited me
In my
Sleeping wakefulness
Tempted me
Remain asleep

The temptation is always valid.

The Taste Of You

Another of the Love songs and Lust songs all mixed into one.

The Taste Of You  -  05 Aug 15

Lingering on my tongue
Shared kisses
Whispered flowers
You taste sweet
I enjoy
The taste of you
Through all 
My days … and nights

Enjoy ~ I do.

Close Dancing

A little sensuous dance to stir the feelings in the middle of the week.

Close Dancing  -  04 Aug 15

Close dancing
Our bodies barely move
Pressed against each other
Pulses beat our rhythm
Barely moving
But our Souls
Whirl around the Multiverse
Gathering new songs
And dreams with which to dance

I hope you enjoyed dancing with me.

Moon Watcher

Seeing a photograph of a Moonbow and having witnessed some in the past, I was inspired to create this poem.

Moon Watcher  -  03 Aug 15

Ring around the Moon
Eye in the sky of night
Watching us
Eye of day
Moon still watches
Unnoticed in the blue

It is quite a stunning sight.

Serpent Disguise

Another weather observation with an added extra.

Serpent Disguise  -  02 Aug 15

Hissing on the
Conservatory roof
Rain pretending to
Be a different species

Droning with its
Tail in a musician’s
Lips the serpent sings
Another disguise

For those who do not know a Serpent was a wind instrument popular in days gone by.

A welcome response to a request.

Avanti  -  01 Aug 15

An invitation
Polite request
Asking to enter
Come ahead
The answer I hoped
I would hear

A very brief lesson in Italian.  Permesso is sometimes used as a request to offer a kiss.

Just know that timing is everything in all matters.

Timing  -  31 Jul 15

Knowing what to say
And when
To tell you how much
I Love you
Knowing when to say
The words which will
Tell you of my Love…
Timing is important
With a message
As important
Say it now

Saying "I Love You" is always important.

Romance Born

A few words from a Lovely friend, commenting on an earlier poem, got me thinking and building.  This is the result.

Romance Born  -  30 Jul 15

Little hints
Words spoken
With just a hint of humour
As if to say
Only joking

Within the eyes
A different story
Is playing out
An offering of Love
Made unconditionally

I Love the way inspiration can come from all places.

Dusk Castle

A little fantasy conjured from an imagined sighting.

Dusk Castle  -  29 Jul 15

Against an ochre sky
Silhouette castle
Total darkness surrounds
Ancient memories
Walk the battlements
Insubstantial figures
Watch the sun fade
Into night

Interesting how the mind creates things.

Love Of An Angel

Variations on a theme, three linked Senryū or Haikū based around the theme of Love with someone really special.

Love Of An Angel  -  28 Jul 15

Angel kisses me
Gentle touch ~ her Love fills me
Dream becomes complete

Angel beside me
Offers protection and Love
Always within me

Wings wrapped around me
Holding me close against her
Her Love eternal

The Angel knows who she is.

Another poem to continue the floral theme.

Rose  -  27 Jul 15

Velvet petals
Swept by the wind
Perfume carries further
Not just in space
But time and mind
The rose of Love
Is everywhere and
Breathe deep

A rose for you.

Flower For You

A little poem offered as a Love song and a healing wish too.

A Flower For You  -  26 Jul 15

A flower offered
For you alone
Sculpted with Love
From the sweetest dream
Flavoured with a delicate spice
To heal all ills
A flower offered for you
And given with Love

Just because ...

Painting skies, painting dreams, painting Love.

Artwork  -  25 Jul 15

Finger-painting our dreams
Weaving them into new
Shapes and forms
Clouds borrowed
From the sky
To build a new dream
To paint
In colours of Love

Paining Love is the most important.

Sleeping Together

Another in the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence ~ this one uses the words.

Sleeping Together  -  24 Jul 15

Lying in bed
Trying not to think …
Mundane thoughts
Clawing at my mind …
Then you
Wandered in
All other thoughts faded
We slept
Each in our own head
Five thousand miles
Means nothing

I Love the peace and contentment that comes when connection is made.
