East Wind

At last a new official "Five Thousand Miles" offering.

East Wind  -  12 Dec 15

The wind from the east
Blows strongly
Whispers in the waves
Call me to you
Acoss five thousand miles
An imoment in time
Transcended by
The breath of a kiss
An instant
As the waves shine
For us

It has been quite a while since the last one.

Turning Again

A few notes on the coming year end.

Turning Again  -  12 Dec 15

The turning year
Turns again
Question who I am
Where my footsteps lead
How words suggest
The way out
And in the turning
Whispers of truth
Shine brightly

With just a touch of metaphysical thoughts in there too.

Summer Visitor

As of the date of this poem [10 Dec], I have had five butterflies in my office appearing at night.

Summer Visitor  -  10 Dec 15

Long after it should
Have gone
Orbits the light
In my room
Summer visitor
Now seems to be
A resident

I managed to relocate them to the great outdoors ~ I hope they survived.

Whispers In The Wind

A winter song.

Whispers In The Wind  -  08 Dec 15

Hear me whisper
In the wind
The winter song
Is opening in my mind
Song of the stars
Carried by the wind
The scent of frost
Is in the air

Sniff the wind and taste the frost.

Dancing In Dream

A Love song in dream.

Dancing In Dream  -  07 Dec 15

Gentle smiles
Gentle thoughts
Carries us
Into dream
Arms outreached
Take us
The dance

Often dreams are the best ways to explore and experience things.

The Shadow Of Me

A Love song with a subtle difference.

The Shadow Of Me  -  06 Dec 15

Look carefully
See a second shadow
Moving with you
Keeping pace
But not the same moves
The shadow of me
With you constantly
Dancing through your dreams
Keeping you company

This shadow is there to keep YOU company always.

Time Dance

A Love song with a hint of Lust song added in.

Time Dance  -  05 Dec 15

Populates the hall
Fills the dance
Time stands still
As the dance moves
Around it
Sweet white wine
Though never as sweet
As the kisses
You share with me

I Love a bit of Lust.

Time Done

A poem with a hint of "limite surréaliste" just to add a little extra interest.

Time Done  -  04 Dec 15

Different places
The wolf sings
To the Moon
Proclaiming Love
Different spaces
Moon sings of winter
Paradise of white
Lovers dance
Spin the flakes
Different times
Another spin
Of the wheel
Hands suggest
Where we should look
Elsewhere to see
How things are

I enjoy singing to the Moon ~ even if my songs are silent ~ She can hear me.

See You

Just a little Love song today.

See You  -  03 Dec 15

In the wonderful places
We have been together
Travelling in the light
Between the stars
Hand in hand
Our destiny linked
In the way
Of the multiverse
See you
In our dreams

We have journeyed far.

Dangerous Games

More "games" of war leading to potential real conflicts.

Dangerous Games  -  02 Dec 15

Sabre rattling
Reaching for a crescendo
Dark days approaching
Not just because
Of winter

Winter of our Souls
As the world spins
Into another war
As the men play
Yet another
Dangerous game

Most of which are totally unjustified.

Flowers Of Memory

This is a poetic memory of a favourite flower.

Flowers Of Memory  -  01 Dec 15

Perfume flows through
My mind
Carrying a colour
I see blue
Bearded Iris
Petals enfold me

Had s small forest of them in the garden back in Londoon and seeing one now brings back memories.

More thoughts around the year ending.

Faded  -  30 Nov 15

Summer blossoms
Once the glory
Of the year
Now faded
Gone to dust
Colours from
A butterfly wing
Reminds me of how
They looked
Kisses in memory
Taste sweeter

Though with the unseasonably warm weather there are some spring flowers appearing now.

Dusts Of Time

Some little things fired the inspiration for this poem.

Dusts Of Time  -  29 Nov 15

The dusts of time
Rest thickly
On the portal
No footprints
Disturb them

The shadows
Of the long day
Paint a picture
Setting sun
On the horizon

I have been here
So many times
For so long
I have forgotten
The reasons

Occasionally I see
Another me
Watching from a distance
I would like to talk
He does not

But if was that strange being called Me who gathered the whole thing together.

Love Lingers On

A Love song with great depth.

Love Lingers On  -  28 Nov 15

Through all the times
When we have shared
Those special moments
One thing has remained
Constant for us
Through all our Eternities
A special perfume
Of Forever
Love lingers on

I feel that the title would make a good name for a perfume.

Funeral Pyre

A short poem to mark the year coming to its end.

Funeral Pyre  -  27 Nov 15

Ashes in the afternoon sky
From the pyre of the year
November draws to a close
Old images and dreams
Consumed in the flames

From the embers a phoenix rises.

Evolving [Acrostic]

Another acrostic poem to test my brain.

Evolving [Acrostic]  -  25 Nov 15

Evening star dance
Venus in the western sky
Opens her Heart to us
Love ever changing and growing
Vibrant energy draws us on
Into a new world
Never ceasing
Growing into something new

I think my brain works.

Light Of Night

Offering a light to follow.

Light Of Night  -  25 Nov 15

Darkness holds us
In warn protection
We are light
We shine out
Light of night
To show the way
For all to follow

And a helping hand too.

A Passion song wrapped in Love.

Flames  -  21 Nov 15

I felt the warmth
From the fires
Of our passion
Fames consumed
All our fears
And our passion
Was complete

I Love the way these songs are building.

Waves Touching

Loving and Passionate kisses this time.

Waves Touching  -  23 Nov 15

Passion rising
Movements slide
Waves touching
Engulfing us
Allowing us to swim
In the depths
Of Love

Pausing for a moment to breathe ...

Kisses are always welcome.

SWALK  -  22 Nov 15

She wanted
A gentle end
To our conversation
Her lips met mine
In a kiss
Which swept away
Thoughts of words
Sealed with
A Loving kiss

Especially Loving kisses.

A Pile Of Words

A pile giving rise to a little play on words.

A Pile Of Words  -  21 Nov 15

Left carelessly
Where someone could
Trip over them
A pile of words
An accidental prod
With a toe
All good ends must
Words cascade
Scatter across the floor
Reading them
Come to a thing
And it all makes
Complete sense

I have long been wanting to tweak that couplet and use it somewhere.

Wind And Rain

Weather observations again.

Wind And Rain  -  20 Nov 15

Wind scatters my thoughts
Shredded pages
From an oft read book
Thrown along the road
Dancing to the rattle
Of the rain

Rain gathers them again
To wash them

Mostly due to the time of year.

Colour Of The Wind

Speculations on the colour of the wind.

Colour Of The Wind  -  19 Nov 5

Seen only
In the reflection
Of the memory
In the puddles
On the road

Guessed at by poets
As they carve words
With sharpened pen
From feathers
Carried by the wind

Seen clearly during
Delirious ramblings
Of a fevered mind
Never remembered
When fever abates

No, I was not afflicted by a fever when I wrote this, it just seems to fit.

You Took Me

This is quite a tender Love song.

You Took Me  -  18 Nov 15

In those momnts
When sadness rules
I feel a gentle touch
Your arms wrapped
Around me
You took  me
On a journey
To explore possibilities
In ways I never expected
Sights unseen before
You took me
Into your Heart
To show me
What Love is
And what Love
Was all about
You took me
Into your Love

Filled with caring and Love.

Something Missing

Searching for an answer to a question.

Something Missing  -  17 Nov 15

Even though I knew
I tried to pretend
Searched for a different
To the question
The answer always
Came back
The same
Missing element
Sadness filled me

Same question always gives the same answer.

I Dream

Building new realities.

I Dream  -  16 Nov 15

Between the stars
I travel
Gathering the myths
From the mists
Of nebulae
To weave them
Into new sagas
I dream them
Into reality

Reality is so easily built and shaped.
Growing myths.

Those Lovely, naughty little games.

Next  -  15 Nov 15

She played games
With kisses
Subtle hints
The games
Grew in enjoyment
Then suddenly
She looked at me
Eyes smiling
Asked a question

So wonderful to play.

In Here

A little gentle Love song today.

In Here  -  14 Nov 15

Deep within her Heart
She held a special place
Where I could go
For peace and Love
Caressed by her soft hands
You are always welcome
In here
She whispered

A welcome to sink into so happily.

Dark ~ Wishes

Those Lovely thoughts before sleep.

Dark ~ Wishes  -  13 Nov 15

In the dark of night
Thoughts wander
Drift into images
Of you
What we want to do
How our world
Will Form
Wishes born
Shine bright

Sometimes the images and thoughts continue on into dream.

Sweet Kisses

Ah!  The power of dreams.

Sweet Kisses  -  12 Nov 15

In my dreams
You came to me
Offering what you knew
I always wanted

We craved
The taste of each other
The warmth of our Love
The look which says I Love you

She looked into my eyes
Caressed my face
Opened and shared
Sweet kisses

Kisses are always welcome, especially from the right person.

Only the wind talks but this only emphasises the silence.

Silences  -  11 Nov 15

Without words
A silence
As a windblown
Autumn leaf

Silence can be very loud.
