Flying Into My Dream

Another of the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.

Flying Into My Dream  -  07 Aug 16

You were waiting
I knew you would be
Your wings had carried you
From so far away
Five thousand miles
Were no challenge
Into my dream
You came
Flying to be with me
Sharing your Love
Then you stood
To welcome  me
Into our shared dream

There are more to come.

Although there is no fountain when I get the water the flow of water to the stream causes ripples which do have a fascination.

Fountain  -  06 Aug 16

Sunlight gathers
On the surface
Ripples dancing
In time to
The cascade
Drawings from the flow
Placed in the sky
By the pen of the fountain

I have always Loved watching the way water moves.

A short drifting thought.

Adrift  -  05 Aug 16

Gently floating
Stream sings a sweet
I watch the stars
Pretending to be fireflies
Pass behind the trees

Gazing into the sky at night.

Always For You

A sensuous Love song, the title of which says everything.

Always For You  -  04 Aug 16

When you need to feel me
Reach out
With your hand
With your mind
Know that I am here
For you
Waiting for the touch
That says to me
I am here
I want you

I am here.

Watching Old Memories

This is just how it feels sometimes.

Watching Old Memories  -  03 Aug 16

Some have deliquesced
Frost in the warm touch
Of the morning sun

Some melt slowly
Ice in spring
Melts faster

Some never melt
Stones just sit
Watch back

Some old memories
Remain in the mind
Become your myths

How some memories persist.

Between Lips

Sensuous thoughts abound.

Between Lips  -  02 Aug 16

Secrets shared
From lip to lip
No words spoken
Eyes open
To read the thoughts
Upon the lips
As the secrets slip
Between them
To rest on the tongue
Secrets tasted
In silence

The sensuous thoughts are usually the most fun.

Everything changes but some things go on forever.

Everlasting  -  01 Aug 16

Things change
Shift into new forms
New ways of seeing
Old shapes hold
The secrets of the new
Love always holds
Both old and new
Truly everlasting

This us self-evident.

Found on the riverbank after getting the water.

Honesty  -  31 Jul 16

River dance
Sing in the shimmer
Of multiple spotlights
Shone by the sun

On the bank
Cast away moons
Still carry the seeds
Of moons to come

Dusty sprig
Honesty silver dreams
Faded slightly
But still a promise

I gathered them for decoration and for the seeds.

The final offering in this "Elements" sequence.

Spirit  -  30 Jul 16

In the space of a dream
You came to me
Showed me
What you are
Showed me
Reality in all the forms
We can build
Your Spirit held me
Told me to fly with you

Final, in this series but other versions may come along at some point.

More from the "Elements" sequence.

Fire  -  29 Jul 16

Lick and cleanse
Remove unwanted thoughts

For the passion
In our dreams

I like these fires.

Another of the "Elements" sequence.

Air  -  27 Jul 16

Breathing elements
Phantom mists
In the dream of day

Reshape the day
Change the form
Of the mist
Tangible dreams
I touch

I cannot avoid touching Air.

Earth  -  26 Jul 16

Home forever
Cared for
By the Eternal Mother
Wherever we are
Earth is always with us
In our Hearts
As we are within

Removing the sadness and replacing it with Love.

Captivating  -  24 Jul 1

Unexpected song
Playing across the field
Carries away
The sadness of yesterday

You captivated me
With your words
Your movements touched me
Took me into your Heart

Your smile washed away
The sadness of yesterday
Kissed a smile into my life
Held me closer

The Joy of Love is so captivating.

Out Of Time

Another Love song formed through the ages.

Out Of Time  -  23 Jul 16

She had followed me
Since the dawn
Always offering Love
Caring touches
Through time
She knew me
She knew
What she wanted
How to give
To me
Out of time
She came
For me

An ongoing song.

This is the way all Love songs begin.

Soul Shared  -  22 Jul 16

My Soul
Told me of YOU

To me

Fields Of Gold

A gentle Love song.

Fields Of Gold  -  21 Jul 16

Walking together
Across fields
Washed by the setting sun
Gold from the sky
Fills the fields
Fills our Hearts
Shows us our tomorrows

If you have walked at sunset you will know this feeling.

Some thoughts on the approaching night.

Nightfall  -  20 Jul 16

Watching the sun
Slip slowly
Toward the sea
Thoughts of the darkness
Lit by the Moon
Never seemed so welcoming

There is comfort in the near darkness.

Tiny Chasms

Dealing with the imagined gaps.

Tiny Chasms  -  28 Jul 16

The gulf
Between what is
And what might have been
Is not as big as tou think

The gulf
Between what is
And what might be
Is even smaller

All it takes
Is one little step
To cross over
The tiny chasms

All it takes is a little awareness.

Peek A Boo

An observation of the night sky.

Peek A Boo  -  19 Jul 16

Fracrured cloud
Moon plays
Hide and seek
With the people
Waiting for
The moment of

So many times viewing has been difficult or even impossible.

Every place we have edplored
Has shown us wonders
But nothing comepares
To the magic of

Forgotten Names

This poem was born out of a wandering mind, for whatever reason I started thinking about my old school.

Forgotten Names  -  17 Jul 16

So many years ago
Good friends
At the time
Faded now
Only as they were
Forgotten names
As mine are to them

Most, if not all, of those I knew have forgotten me.

Unstable Feet

Returning home, tired, my feet and body were not in agreement.

Unstable Feet  -  16 Jul 16

Taking a step
Unable to remain
Even though
The mind
Is convinced
That the body
Is where it should be

Tired and "emotional" due to not eating for too long.

Noises Off

Toward the end of the Lafrowda Festival, a two-week long music and arts event, there was an evening performance on a stage in Market Square by several local bands.

Noises Off  -  15 Jul 16

Sitting in my room
Warm night
Window open
Hoping for night slience
In the village
Music plays
As groups perform
Midnight came and went
Leaving silence
And the noises off
Are just a memory

This was the cause of the noises off.

Waiting For You

A little Love song today.

Waiting For You  -  14 Jul 16

Waiting in a hazy dream
For a sign of approaaching Love
You would bring to me

Waiting above the sea
For the little indication
You are close

Waiting is over
For now I kow
You are with me

Waiting for YOU.

Watching the sea, totally calm for a change, these thoughts wandered into me.

Wishing  -  13 Jul 16

Looking at the sea
Tiny waves
Caress the sand
Memories of water
You were here to watch
And dream with me

The view gives rise to a sense of calm within.

Special Kisses

This is a situation we have all been in or want to be in.

Special Kisses  -  12 Jul 16

Lips brush against lips
Sensuous moves
Looking deep within
Eyes see and know
In our minds
Already we
Are taking the kiss

Have we not?

Angel Song

I was in bed about to enter sleep when I became fully aware of this.

Angel Song  -  11 Jul 16

I hear it
Around me
Within me
Always the song
Fillls me
My every move
I know the song
Of the angels

Most people call this tinnitus but I much prefer the poetic form.

Travelling Hopefully

This is the way we should all travel.

Travelling Hopefully  -  10 Jul 16

My dreams
Had woken
In ways which
Was encouraged
To fade
Travelling across
Mind open
In hope

In hope.

Examining possibilities.

Intensity  -  98 Jul 16

Between then and now
Lifetimes passed
Time was an imagined veil
Of the myriad thens
In front of
The single now
The potential whens
Lay an intensity
Of the next step
Into the potential

There are always potentials.

Smiles Apart

Another addition to the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.

Smiles Apart  -  08 Jul 16

Our smiles know
The dreams we share
They remember always
Despite distance
Five thousand miles
Is a dream
To be built upon

Distance is a fiction when two Hearts think alike.
