Forests In My Mind

Exploring where my mind goes.

Forests In My Mind  -  09 Feb 15

I walk along nameless paths
Between sheltering trees
In the shadow
Of the sun
The forest gives me shelter
Carries my dreams
Transforms my world
Opens my mind

Some of the places it goes are really beautiful.

In The Rain

One of those inspired by the weather poems.

In The Rain  -  08 Feb 16

Dream shadow
Phantom memories
Of sunlit days
Now washed
Put away to drain
Wondering if
They will be taken
Out again
Or whether they will remain
In the rain

There does seem to be a lot of rain at the moment.

Thoughts on the way things may or may not be going.

Hints  -  07 Feb 16

Little subtle ways
Of how things
Forcing a shift
In thoughts
Knowing what is
In in the drift
Does not always help
All we can do
Is watch the

Just keep watching for the hints.

Was A Day

A poem with a small element of "limite surréaliste" within it.

Was A Day  -  06 Feb 16

Sentences fragmented
Senses across
A mindscape of shattered dream
After the night
There was a day
Wrapped in cloud
Hiding words from examination
Interpreting the sense
Misinterpreting the scents

I rather like the way these poems are developing.

A sad poem triggered by circumstances beyond control.

Absence  -  05 Feb 16

Heart chipped
Beginning to fragment
Hurting because
We are not together

Held apart due to
Even knowing that
Absence is painful

When nothing can be changed because ...

Another of the wistful Love songs today.

Moments  -  04 Feb 16

I will wait there for you
In the moment
Of when we touched
For the very first time
We knew
We knew that we
Forever destined
To be
So I will wait
Through all the Eternities
Calling you
To me
In our moments

Dreams of waiting in full expectation of a wonderful outcome.

Dreams Of

A Love song with a slightly wistful air.

Dreams Of  - 04 Feb 16

I feel the moment
One kiss in the night
The white dove sings
Love songs flow
Around me
The dreams of
Where we are
The dove has shown us
So with a kiss
We ride the dream

The gentle Love songs are often the best.

The Winds Of Tomorrow

This is something of a "limite surréaliste" poem with a slight horror theme.

The Winds Of Tomorrow  -  03 Feb 16

The winds of tomorrow
Cast a heavy shadow
On today
Sadness carries
Its own melancholic
Image on the world
The shadows
Begin to take form
Dæmons of the dark
Claw at the shutters
Rattle the window
Scream into the night
Taunt the wind
Cauterise the wounds
Windburn out of time
Walk into the shadows
Of tomorrow

I do not know is "enjoy" is a suitable word but I hope you like this offering.

Slow Sensuosity

A Lust song for your delight today.

Slow Sensuosity  -  02 Feb 16

Arousing deep desires
I considered
Long forgotten
For the way they
Would be awakened

And before you ask "sensuosity" is a valid word.

On The Sand

This is probably a reworking of something I wrote years ago.

On The Sand  -  01 Feb 16

Words mingle
With abandoned shells
Echo of the memory
Of the sea

I wrote on the sand
A message
Which only you
And the sea would read

Waves carried words
To take them to you
So you could read
What once was on the sand

I feel that this version is better than the first one.

I Recall I Remember

A rather special Love song today.

I Recall I Remember  -  01 Feb 16

When you said
In a soft whisper
Those special magic words
That wrote themselves
Into my world
Into my life
Such simple words
With more power
Than I could imagine

Words which spent
An Eternity to grow
Into into a reality
I recall how they were born
I remember
The way you wove them 
Into what you wanted
How you wanted them to work

I recall
I remember
The words
Will remember them forever

For a very special somebody.

Just a Love song today.

Treasures  -  31 Jan 16

You shared with me
The most important
Of all treasures
That one special thing
Which only you
Could proviide
Because that treasure
Is the one I keep
With me

The greatest of all treasures.

Drink Deep

Something everyone should be doing.

Drink Deep  -  30 Jan 16

The waters of life
Flow deep and fast
Sometimes too fast
To really enjoy
Take a moment
To drink deep
Of the waters of Love
To enjoy the moments
Of pleasure

The waters of life and Love are what makes it all worthwhile.

Secret Thoughts

A Lust song using play to explore.

Secret Thoughts  -  29 Jan 16

Sharing with you
Secret thoughts
So we can play
Deep within
Our fantasies
Sharing together
Our desires
So we can understand
What we really want

Sometimes play is the answer to desire.

Monday, 15 February 2016


I do not think that I have to say anything more, just read the poem and you will see what I mean.

Sharing  -  28 Jan 16

Those moments
Which cannot be forgotten
Always better remembered
When shared
By two people
Who care
To let moments
Into something more

Sharing is ALWAYS good.

I Recall

A poem about the way dreams can affect us all.

I Recall  -  27 Jan 16

Dreams are never forgotten
Just stored
In parts of memory
Where I seldom wander
I recall them
When the vision is powerful
You walk through the thoughts
Of my garden
Kissing the blossoms
Kissing me

And the way that YOU can affect me too.

Wind Blown Kisses

The sky scattered some kisses on me today.
This another of the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.

Wind Blown Kisses  -  26 Jan 16

Walking in the rain
With very few exceptions
Every face I see
Is sad
Rain in my face
Each drop feels like
A kiss
Blown to me
From you
Five thousand miles
Is only
As far as the nearest cloud

There is no such thing as a coincidence.

Sensual [Acrostic]

A little naughty acrostic for your reading pleasure today.

Sensual [Acrostic]  -  24 Jan 16

Sliding hand on smooth skin
Endless gentle movement
Never allowing sensations to wane
Slipping into something more
Under the veil of clothing
Aware of heightened pleasure
Lust ignites firing the bodies

A little naughty.

Imagined Reality

Playing with the images watching them shift.

Imagined Reality  -  23 Jan 16

Looking from the window
In the wall
Shapes suggest trees
Houses something

Looking from the window
In my mind
Forest reaches
Toward the sea
Sun kissed

Looking from the window
In my memory
Trees gently stir the air
As the fire of the afternoon sun
Kisses my face

Since reality is always changing there is always something new tp see.

Gulls Cry

Short and simple but it fits in with the weather recently.

Gulls Cry -  22 Jan 16

Through a blustery sky
Calling to friends
Proclaiming the joys
Of flight

Strongest wind and heavy rain, the gulls are always around.

Tuesday, 9 February 2016

Self Portrait

This has been happening quite a lot recently.

Self Portrait  -  21 Jan 16

Listening to the sounds
Window shaking
Trees conduct a hidden
While the wind draws
A self portrait
Across the road
With rain

Watching the broad brush-strokes form the image.

Shadows On A Lawn

Slightly wistful thoughts from an afternoon.

Shadows On A Lawn  -  20 Jan 16

Long deep thoughts
Painted acros the lawn
By the afternoon sun
Ancient steps
From a forgotten dance
Leave shadows
To follow
For those who dare
The grass remembers
The shadows still dance
Across the lawn

I have never been on this particular lawn but other lives have shown me memories.

Love Songs

Love songs are the Loveliest ways of sharing thoughts.

Love Songs  -  19 Jan 16

In a secret dream
We came together
To share a moment
Share each other
With words written
For us by the stars
As they dreamed us

Dancing in the dreams of the stars.

Photographs [Acrostic]

I offer another acrostic today.

Photographs [Acrostic}  -  18 Jan 16

Pieces of time
Held in a cocoon
Of silver
Touched by the light
Of a different day
Graphical imagry
Retained within the paper
Art revealed
Privately to a tender gaze
Holding memories from

In the "old days" when photographs were taken using negatives, the images were made using silver.

Sweet Memories

Growing the memories we want to live.

Sweet Memories  -  17 Jan 16

Always being formed
Little dream
Upon little dream
Sometimes slowly
Sometimes faster
Than imagination travels
Building the sweet memories
We savour the taste

Somehow those memories seem to last longer than all others.

Secret Lover

We all have a secret Lover somewhere.

Secret Lover  -  16 Jan 16

No one knew
That she was with me
All the time
We talked
Made gentle Love
Sometimes more
We were always
My secret Lover
And I

The fact that they are secret makes them all the more special.

Star Dance

A musical Love song.

Star Dance  -  15 Jan 16

Around the hall
Galaxies spin
Play the tunes
That move the stars
Dancing drifting
Love movements

I have touched on this stellar dance theme before but I rather like it.

Tasting The Weather

Observations on the weather.

Tasting The Weather  -  14 Jan 16

Breathing in
Through an open mouth
Air passing across
The tongue
The weather
Rain ~ no
Frost ~ perhaps snow
Not really welcome

A little experiment anyone can do provided that the flavours are known.

With Dream Surrounded

Wandering in a Love song.

With Dream Surrounded  -  13 Jan 16

I have wandered
Many miles
Through ancient forests
By timeless oceans
Across the desert rocks
Nowhere have I found
The dream you offered me
Surrounding me
I shall return to you
To accept your dream
And make it ours

And the dream takes me to YOU.
