First Light

Another little Love song today.

First Light  -  08 Oct 16

When you appeared
I was entranced
Your beauty filled me
Showed me the world
In a different way
The light you gave me
Was your light
I realised that it was
Your Love
And I was happy

The light of Love.

Drift Easy

A lovely relaxing journey.

Drift Easy  -  07 Oct 16

Slow movement
Gentle winds carry me
Aimless journey
Simply for the pleasure
No worry
Easy drift

Just for the pleasure.

Shadows Of A Dream

Have you watched your dreams dance around you?

Shadows Of A Dream  -  05 Oct 16

Tiny moments in dreamstate
Cast little shadows
Across the world
Unseen by most
Though always present
The dream invokes
The birth of dreams
Shadows mark their passage
Watch now
The dance between
Dream and shadow

Their shadows let you know that they are really there.

Torn Sky

A short observstioon.

Torn Sky  -  05 Oct 16

Clouds torn
Curtains of the sky
Letting the night enter
Shrouding the day

I have seen these tears quite often at various times of the day.

Secrets can never be spoken but can be shared.

Secrets  -  04 Oct 16

Even if I whispered it
The secrecy would be broken
So I cannot say a single word
I have to keep the secrets
Held in my mind
You have the key
Can read our secret
Whenever you want
It is your secret too

YOU have the key to our secrets.

Bonded Man

A rather different and special Lust song today.

Bonded Man  -  03 Oct 16

Taken by a sudden whim
A desire overwhelming
I was bonded to you
In ways I never understood
You claimed me
I could not prevent you
From taking what you wanted
Claimed forever

Rather lovely to be claimed in this way.

Quiet Breaths

A soft and gentle Love song.

Quiet Breaths  -  02 Oct 16

Here in bed
Listening to you
The sound of your breathing
Soft music to me
I hear you always
When you talk
A symphony plays
Quietly in my Heart

The breaths can always be heard.

Waking Walking

One of those times when you can never be certain which state you are in, waking or sleeping.

Waking Walking  -  01 Oct 16

Taking cues from the dark
Dreams scattered in my thoughts
Sleep shattered
I walk through a jumbled land
Trying to regather
The chaotic images
The dream world calls me back
But I keep

This confusion happens to me rather frequently.

A Love song always sung for YOU.

Always  -  30 Sep 16

Feeling you around me
Strength and pleasure
Lips meet
Open to share
The secret words
Of Love
All the time
Daytime nighttime

The words of the song have a magic of their own.

Crack In The Sky

A Love song with an intriguing touch,

Crack In The Sky  29 Sep 16

So many things enter
Low flying cloud
Covers the movement
One thing can never be hidden
The light which shines
When you move
When you tell me
You Love me
Let us fly together through
The crack in the sky

Let us fly.

Moments With You

A tender Love song today.

Moments With You  -  28 Sep 16

Sweet tender touches
Loving looks
Deep eye contact
Connection with Souls
Drawn to each other
Over millennia
Just a moment
Becomes a lifetime
So much more
My moments with you
More valueable
Than any treasure

This poem has a similar feel to the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence I feel.

Dawn Of Night

Watch the stars, let them lead you in the dance.

Dawn Of Night  -  26 Sep 16

The evening star
Announces the arrival
Of night
Her beauty is the song
Her song
Fills the waiting world
With expectancy
Dance in the stars

Dance in the light of Venus.

Wednesday, 19 October 2016


A sensuous Lust song for your delight today.

Welcome  -  25 Sep 16

She was open to me
Silent but she said more
With a simple look

Her smile said what she needed
Her eyes spoke
The single word

That subtle smile.

Rain On Rain

This seems to be a theme for the latter days of September.

Rain On Rain  -  24 Sep 16

Washed away
Now all that remains
Is the smell of rain

Rain on rain
In darkness
Sound carries images
Thoughts imagine

I Love the smell of petrichor, rain on dry stone, the problem comes when there is so much rain that only the smell of rain is around.

Always Remembered

A little Love song today.

Always Remembered  -  23 Sep 16

Through time and space
Dreams ask to be remembered
Before they happen
In that space
You will always be remembered
Whatever else happens
You are always remembered

Wherever ~ whenever ~ always remembered.
Always with me.

Kiss Of An Angel

Four linked modern HaikÅ« for the offering today.

Kiss Of An Angel  -  22 Sep 16

In winter
All is quiet
Waiting for the moment

In spring
Kisses full of promise
Grows through the year

In summer
The promise expands
To fill the days

In autumn
Angel kisses shared
Lights passion within the Heart

Those kisses are delicious and magical.

Muse Whispers

I always listen to the promptings.

Muse Whispers  -  21 Sep 16

In the depths of night
A sweet voice
Whispers to me
Write it down
Your thoughts are important
By tomorrow they will be gone
If you want to keep them
Write them down
A poem was birthed
In darkness

I always listen to my Muse.

Watching The Sun [Acrostic]

A slightly different acrostic, normally the title carries the root of the poem.  In this version the title is a descriptive framework and the acrostic is a set of three related words.

Watching The Sun  -  20 Sep 16

Reflecting the fires of dawn
In my skies and across my mind
Stars are a slowly fading memory
Endlessly scintillating dreams

Muse weaves the words
Into new worlds to be sung
Day bathes the new worlds
Dance in the magical ring
Around the pipers mystic songs
Yielding to the power of noon

Slow drift into the purple
Eventide filled with waiting dreams
Tonight sweetly calls

I feel that it makes an interesting variation on the usual format.

Come With Me

Another in the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.

Come With Me  -  19 Sep 16

Take my hand
Just one tiny step
She is waiting for you

My guide showed me
How small a move
Five thousand miles
Can be

When the mind is open
Love provides the wings
Distance is irrelevant

This sequence is progressing rather well methinks.

Silence Between Silences

Thoughts do not like silence, they work very hard to fill it with their noise.

Silence Between Silences  -  18 Sep 16

Words quiet
Thoughts take over
Fill the silence
With their own noise
The mental world
When real silence
Fills the void
Peace in silence

Sometimes they can be quietened enough for peace to rule.

Remember Me

A gentle statement of affection and assistance.

Remember Me  -  17 Sep 16

In those moments
When you feel unsure
And need a friendly touch
Remember me
I will always give you
What you need
Because I am here for you

I am always here.

Harvest Nights

Written at the time of the full Moon ~ The Harvest Moon.

Harvest Nights  -  16 Sep 16

Moon carves out
Light from shadow
In the taverns
Harvest celebrations
Continue into the night
On the morrow
Fields shall be prepared
For the next crop
But for now we celebrate

At this time of year the Moon is particularly beautiful.

New Words

Have you ever felt that you need new ways to say things?

New Words  -  15 Sep 16

Constantly seeking fresh ways
To tell you things
Knowing that I have said
Everything before
Hoping you will never become
With what I say
Even if I cannot find
New words to explain
How I feel
I still mean what I say
And the old words
Are always valid

I certainly feel that I need new ways to say things but the old words are still valid.

Autumn Soliloquy

An observation of the time of year and time of day.

Autumn Soliloquy  -  14 Sep 16

Leaves dance
On stray winds
I talk ~ owls listen
Sometimes they answer
But usually
They keep their own council
And the leaves
Dance on
To the music
Of my words

Another night when through half-open window I hear the owls conversing.

Dark Of Day

One of those slightly surreal poems telling of what goes on in my  mind and life.

Dark Of Day  -  13 Sep 16

From the dark of day
Wrapped in a cocoon
Of silken shadow
Poems mix with dreams
Breed quietly
Birth new images
Populate my nights
And days

Sometimes I wonder if everybody has feelings like these.

This is the second of the two poems the first of which, "Nocturnal"  was published yesterday.

Diurnal  -  12 Sep 16

Sitting in the warm spray
Of the September sun
Watching birds gather
Light is cooler now
And in the distance
Thunder rumbles softly
Telling of a storm to come
In the short day

It is fun and quite satisfying to create linked poems.

Wednesday, 5 October 2016


The first of a pair of poems, the inspiration for which came to me one night [ strange that :-) ] the second poem will appear tomorrow.

Nocturnal  -  11 Sep 16

Dancing with the shadows
Of the Moon
Playing catch with the stars
Dreaming the owls
Having a conversation
With the trees
These things and more
I do every night

So many of my poems were born in darkness.

Carefully Chosen Words

Some words are carelessly tossed out but if the real consequences are understood then...

Carefully Chosen Words  -  10 Sep 16

You looked at me
I barely heard the sounds
Though my Heart knew
What you said
I composed an answer
We both used three
Carefully chosen words
Looking deep into your eyes
I whispered
I Love YOU

... words should always be carefully chosen.

The Mists Of Returning

The call to return home.

The Mists Of Returning  -  09 Sep 16

After all is done
The mists close in again
Hiding the paths of the world
Reminding that there is
One way feft
To home
The call can be heard
Return to me

Listen ~ can you hear?

Sunday, 2 October 2016


The differences.

Retouched  -  08 Sep 16

Old photographs can be
Made to look like new
Old memories can be
Made to look completely different
Things which never happened
Now become imaginings
Only in thought

Sometimes the changes can be damaging.

Revisiting [Acrostic]

Playing with words again.

Revisiting [Acrostic]  -  07 Sep 16

Returning to the place wheere we met
Eternal kisses shared there
Viewing the worlds with fresh eyes
In ways which show new vistas
Seeing clearly now
Into places where we were
Then seeing where we are
Intimate touches guide us
No longer looking back
Going forward to find new worlds

I Love the way an acrostic permits word-play to take thoughts to another level.
