Enchanting Me

There is a very special Spellweaver in my life.

Enchanting Me  -  11 Dec 16

She cast a net
About me
Pulled gently
And took me in
I felt the words
Wrapping me
Enchanting me
She gathered me
To her Heart
Her web of spells
Held me close
I was hers

YOU know who.

Friday, 30 December 2016


Always watching for YOU, happy when YOU arrive.

Arrival  -  10 Dec 16

In the afternoon
When all is quiet
A whisper tells me
That you are here

I can hear your smile
Louder than the words
You speak
Always here in my mind

Your arrival is always
Welcomed by me
Because you have
Completed me

Missing pieces found and replaced.

Wishing You

Feeling an absence more strongly on the 07 December and this was a kind of prayer.

Wishing You  -  07 Dec 16

You are not here
I have asked
Though there was an answer
You did not arrive
Wishing hoping
Asking again
Wishing you were here

I think we all feel this way sometimes.

Mind Dancing

A Love song with a generous helping of Lust song.

Mind Dancing  -  06 Dec 16

The swirl of a skirt
Music playing a sweet melody
The touch of your back
In my hands
Your lips brush mine
Our dance takes me
Into our shared mind
We dance forever

YOU know who I am dancing with here.

Inspired by a direct message conversation this song was born.

Guardian  -  05 Dec 16

I stand before you
Protecting your thoughts
Always with you
Protecting you
In my cloak of darkness
My sword of stars in hand
Ready to be your guardian
Your protector
Your Knight of Night

Interesting how many thoughts come from seemingly random words or phrases.

Because We

Another song to say thank you.

Because We  -  04 Dec 16

I remember those dark days
When nothing seemed to be right
Candles did not pierce the night
No warmth from the fire

Now light begins to shatter
The night and clarity opens the day
To beauty and Love
Because We

Thank you for YOU.

Unconditional [Acrostic]

An acrostic today, it was not planned but this is rather fitting for a Yule poem.

Unconditional [Acrostic]  03 Dec 16

Universal special thoughts
Now flowing
Curving back
On itself to become
New again in the morning
Dream echoes
In the daylight
Twilight follows soon
Imagination flows
Opening doors in the mind
Natural way to see
All inward

Happy Yule or whatever Winter Solstice type event you celebrate.

Playing In Cloud

Hide and seek.

Playing In Cloud  -  02 Dec 16

Looking out
From behind cloud
Did he really think
He was not visible
Wrapping himself in cloud
Thinking the game
Could continue

Playing is part of the fun.

Whispers In My Heart

There are a lot of whispers, some are much louder than others.

Whispers In My Heart  -  01 Dec 16

Hearing you
Soft words caress my mind
Seeing you
Visions fill me
Listening to you
With my Heart
Your whispers are loudest
They tell me
Of you
I know you

I listen to them all, particularly the one from and about YOU.

Midnight Waves

A memory of bio-luminescent life-forms seen at the coast at night.

Midnight Waves  -  30 Nov 16

The welcome dark
Allows me to see
The tiny sparks
Of light
Driven by the waves
Going where the ocean
Takes them

This is a really fascinating sight.

Dark Vision

Another song for YOU.

Dark Vision  -  29 Nov 16

For a message
Night has begun
Hours of starlight
Fill my sight
Drift toward you
Vision clears
In darkness I see you

Songs for YOU happen quite often.

Whispers Of Time

I really do not know how to categorise this poem.

Whispers Of Time  -  28 Nov 16

In all the worlds
In all the words
Spoken by the sages
In the annals of time
None sound louder
Than the whisper
That sleeps in the mind

Any suggestions?

Drops In The Ocean

Dreams and reality intermingle, who can say which is which.

Drops In The Ocean  -  27 Nov 16

A dark water dream
The ocean
Washes over me
Drops of Love
Bathe me
I know you are with me
In our dream
In our ocean
Sailing until dawn

Dreaming with YOU.

Three modern Haikū on offer today.

Impressions  -  26 Nov 16


Soft subtle perfume
Around me floats
Carrying a thought of you


Your voice
When I am alone


Feeling you around me
Knowing my memories are true
Impressions of you

Inspired by YOU.

Holding You

In the place where mysteries grow.

Holding You  -  25 Nov 16

In the garden of Love
I held You
Mysteries surrounded us
Wrapped in the perfume
Of the flowers

Dreams seemed to hold us
The dreams became reality
Because I was
Holding You
And You held me

YOU held me.

Friday, 16 December 2016


This poem was a bit of a surprise to me.  As usual; the title came to me first then my mind inspired by Muse filled in the details.

Tilt  -  24 Nov 16

I have watched
The circular dance
Sails in the breeze
Now I ride
Lance in hand
The challenge
Has been laid
No windmill is safe

For those who are unaware tilting and jousting are used almost synonymously.

Don Quixote ~ ready to play?

Sisters In The Sky

An observation.

Sisters In The Sky  -  23 Nov 16

Morning star
Shines bright to call
The sun
Into the day

Evening star
Welcomes the night
With the departure
Of the day

Two sisters
Shine as one
Carrying Love to all
Who see them

Or should it be called an observatory?

Through Your Eyes

Something near a Love song involving that one special person.

Through Your Eyes  -  22 Nov 16

have looked at the world
Seen how I look
To you
The essence of you
Infuses my life
We look into the mirror
Of what we see
What we see is

YOU have seen WE too.

Rain Dances

Yet more weather observaions.

Rain Dances  -  21 Nov 16

In the sky
On the land
Silver feet
Dance to the rhythm
Of the drums
Of rain on the roof
Hypnotic beat
Invites other feet
To join

Have you heard the drums?

Winter Night Dream

A short poem inspired by the title of "A Midsummer Night's Dream".

Winter Night Dream  -  20 Nov 16

In the dark
Glimmering thoughts appear
Opening a dream
In the space of the night
When the winter smiles

I would have called this Midwinter but we are not there yet.

Ice In The Air

Another weather poem.

Ice In The Air  -  19 Nov 16

Searching for a place
To land
Scratch the cloud
Rattle the land
Sharp edges pierce
My thoughts
Scatter my dreams
In darkness
I hear them
Ice in the air
Ready to shatter
My body

This one has a rather negative close.

This is an attempt at a chakra poem.

Green  -  18 Nov 16

Hearts in alignment
Spirit kisses Spirit
When Chakras touch
Lips follow
Green with a hint of pink
Colours flow
From Chakra to Chakra

I think it works.

From The West

Another weather observation.

From The West  -  17 Nov 16

Rain tapping on my window
Asking for attention
Trying to ignore it
But insisting that I should listen
Now throwing sleet
Against the glass
Listen to my cold words

Wet and noisy.

Wind Wish

This poem is related to the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.

Wind Wish  -  16 Nov 16

Calling for a ride
On the wings of wind
You are so near
Yet so far
I wish the wind
Would carry me
To you

Asking the wind for transportation.

Night Witch

The Night Witch is a really Lovely person.

Night Witch  -  15 Nov 16

Taking me in the night
Enchanting me
Creating a dream
Starlight spell
Ensnared me
Wrapped my mind
In a web of silk
Gossamer dream
The night belongs to her
And in the night
She claimed me
I belong to her
The Night Witch

She has enchanted me.

Tuesday, 6 December 2016


YOU are in my poem again.

Invitation  -  14 Nov 16

By starlight gleam
I watched you
Walk across the sand
In your eyes I saw
The special smile
The one which said
Come with me
To walk
And be

And YOU are always welcome.

Moonbow Dreams

Seeing a photograph of a Moonbow on the BBC News website reminded me of acrually seeing them during my stays on the edge of Dartmoor.

Moonbow Dreams  -  13 Nov 16

Arc of silver
Across the sky
Calls me to attend
The world of my dreams
Painted with the same brush
Silver moonbow

They are really quite lovely and fascinating.

Touching Light

Another poem for and about the one special person.

Touching Light  -  12 Nov 16

Tasting the brilliance
Of your Love
Enfolding waves
Wrapping me
Gemtly feeling you
To take you into me
Touching lightly
Touching you
Touching light

You know who YOU are.

Saturday, 3 December 2016


This may or may not be real, depending on your perception.

Perception  -  11 Nov 16

I do not know
Whether what I see
Is real
Or if my mind
Is just making it up
Invention of reality
Reality is an invention
It all depends on which way
I look
Perception of perception

How does it look to you?

In The Day

Another observation poem.

In The Day  -  10 Nov 16

Shadows of clouds
Across the land
Painting images of themselves
In the illusion
Of the moment
In the day

Watch the paintings form.

To You

In a way this is a sequel to "From Me" because of the title though the feel of the poem is different.

To You  -  09 Nov 16

Long moments in the sun
You spoke the words
Wove the spell
To charm my Heart
You looked deep within me
Saw clearly all of me
Knew that what was there
I would willingly give to you

What do you think?

Wednesday, 30 November 2016

Because [Acrostic]

An acrostic dedicated to the one special person.

Because [Acrostic]  -  08 Nov 16

Been with you for an
Eternity in a state of bliss
Calling on the stars to witness
All our Love
Unbounded and freely given
Shared without condition
Endlessly because of you

YOU know.

Mind's Eye

A Love song with just a little Lust song adding to the chorus.

Mind's Eye  -  07 Nov 16

Watching you
Feeling your Love
Knowing what I see
Is real
Hearing your gentle voice
Echoing the words I speak
Feeling your hands
Smelling your special perfume
These things and more
My mind's eye
Can see

Thinking about the Special One.

Song In The Night

A little poem about an observation and general thoughts.

Song In The Night  -  06 Nov 16

Nightingale takes the melody
Shared with the blackbird
Chorus in the night
Singing in the secret darkness
Of a special world
The song fills everything

I remember listening to blackbirds singing at night when I lived in London.

Sunday, 27 November 2016

From Me

A little bouquet for that someone special.

From Me  -  05 Nov 16

Formed from the words
I spoke to you
A bouquet of secret flowers
Presented to you
From me
With Love
To take with you
Wherever you go

Wonder who ~ YOU know.

Autumn Senryū

A form of poem I have not offered for a long time.

Autumn Senryū


Leaves washed from the trees
By heavy rain ~ once crisp now
Soft beneath my feet


Cloud scrapes the hillside
Harvesting the last flowers
For summer's spirit


Autumn holds us all
In a cool tender embrace
Warmth not far away

Quite satisfying I feel.
