Holding You Holding Me


A Love song based in reality and dream.





Holding You Holding Me  -  12 Jan 16

In our Eternal dream
Wrapping my arms around
Holding you

Constantly
Sharing the thoughts
I hold the closest

The dream holds us both
You hold me closer
Than the dream

In the dreamscape
We travel on
Holding We





Both worlds are real.

Mourning Morning


I felt really sad that day though I cannot recall what actually set these thoughts into form.





Mourning Morning  -  11 Jan 16

My dreams of the morning world
Lay in tattered ruins
Shattered worlds
No dream can resurrect
You left me with
Wishes unfulfilled
Now all I have is mourning
For a broken dream





Sometimes a sad song emerges.

Night Sailing


A little Love song today.





Night Sailing  -  10 Jan 16

The old saying
Ships which pass
In the night
Sounds good
But our ships
Sail together
Through the night
Through all our days
Across the Infinite seas
Carried by our Love





Watching in the night for all the ships.

Muse Sings


This poem is essentially a reworking and sequel to a poem I wrote very many years ago.





Muse Sings  -  09 Jan 16

Soft sweet duet
The minstrel lays a melody
For the singer
Muse weaves words
Into poems and songs
Singer and Muse
Sing together
Hand in hand





I cannot recall the date of the original but, for completion, I include it here.

The Singer And The Muse

A broken melody
Charm├Ęd forth by fingers
Idly touching
A key depressed

The singer and the Muse join hands
A hummingbird flies
A sweet song in a minor key
Brings tears to ancient eyes

And deep within a hidden valley
A fountain plays
Far from the sight and sign of man


This is one of the few poems of mine which has stuck in my memory.
I hope you enjoyed it as well as the post for today.

Pale Wings


A short poem based on observations from many years ago.





Pale Wings  -  08 Jan 16

Glisten in the light
Of a solitary street lamp
Silent flight
Through the night
Hunting
Owl watching





The memory triggers images whenever I hear owls calling.

Candle Glow


A little Love song, I am coming to YOU.





Candle Glow  -  07 Jan 16

In the darkness
A single point of light
Shines a welcome
Into the frosty night
You lit a candle
To welcome me
Into your arms
I am here wrapped
In the candle glow
Wrapped in your Love





The candle theme is one I have returned on several occasions and I make no apology for any of them.

Smiles In The Rain


Sudden realisation, an epiphany, about what I need to know.





Smiles In The Rain  -  06 Jan 16

Sudden understanding
Without the rain
There can be no rainbows
Without the night
The glory of dawn
Would never happen
Without your absence
The Love you bring
Would not be so intense
And so I have
Smiles in the rain
While I wait for you





Smiling in the rain because of YOU.

Stories


A little suggestion for life.





Stories  -  05 Jan 16

Some people
Are sad when they reach
The last story
They think there is no more
Just pick up a pen
Start to write
Make a new story
Write it
And live the mystery
Stories just wait to be written





Grab your pen or whatever you use and start writing.

Keys


A little Love song.






Keys  -  04 Jan 16

There were never
Any doors
But
You held the keys
To my Heart
You carried them
On a silken cord
Around your neck
So the keys
Were resting beside
Your Heart





Need I say more?

Little Thoughts


This was written while short random power outages were happening.





Little Thoughts  -  03 Jan 16

In intermittent darkness
Thoughts
Simmer
Is it my fault
Or maybe the rain
And wind
Little lost thoughts





Later these short outages turned into a much longer one as maintenance engineers worked on an underground short-circuit.

Remember


A Love song saying how I feel.





Remember  -  02 Jan 16

I shall always be with you
Time alone has no beginning
No end
So we can ever be together
Held in the Love
Of we
Remember
All our Eternities
We share





Special message in a Love song.

A Gentle Touch


For the first offering of 2016, I give you a Lust song or perhaps a Passion song.





A Gentle Touch  -  01 Jan 16

She held me
More than an embrace
With a subtle passion
I touched her hair
Gently
As our lips met
Lovers meeting
For the first time
Always known each other
Touching exploring
A gentle touch
Within each other





Warmth caused by the fires of desire.

Lifetimes


A special message to one who is very special.





Lifetimes  -  31 Dec 15

I have waited for you
Through all my lifetimes
On worlds that have
No name
Places where your name
Is whispered
Revered
Worlds where you
Have called me to be
With you
In our eternal dance





This message marks the end of the 2015 series of poems.
I hope you enjoyed them.

Open To Tomorrow


A poem to mark the approaching New Year.





Open To Tomorrow  -  30 Dec 15

The way of stars
Leads into a new dawn
Sparkles in the dark
Opens our eyes
To tomorrow
And the one star
Leads the way
Tomorrow comes
Before we realise





So nearly the end of 2015.  At least as far as this blog is concerned.

Damselfly Dreams


Remembering summer days from years past.





Damselfly Dreams  -  29 Dec 15

Remembering
Faded summer days
When we danced
Around the garden
Near the pond
Iridescent wings
Catch the sunlight
So we can carry
Some home with us





Ponds and streams were favoured fly zones.

Welcome


I  guess this could be called a Lust song.





Welcome  -  28 Dec 15

She opened the door
Smiled and said
Welcome
Her smile so warm
She did not need to say
Welcome
Her eyes brightly glittered
Held an even louder
Welcome





I am not going to argue with that description,

Words Kiss Cascade


I am not even going to try to explain this poem.





Words Kiss Cascade  -  27 Dec 15

Words
Paint my sky
Give me things
With which to play

Kiss
The Moon as she
Passes close
Accepts it with a smile

Cascade
Thoughts tumble filling
The painted sky
With moons of desire





I hope you find that it explains itself.

Unknown Worlds


Worlds of fantasy but I feel that I have visited them.





Unknown Worlds  -  26 Dec 15

Sunrise brings new colours
To the worlds
In my imagination
Unexpected constellations
Fade into the night
Dawn brings the worlds
To life
I gaze into the unknown worlds





See you there somewhen.

In Those Stray Moments


I do not really think that I need to explain the thoughts behind this poem.





In Those Stray Moments  -  26 Dec 15

Think of me
In those stray moments
When sadness
Tries to claim you
Think of me
Holding you tenderly
Reminding you
Of the Love
I have for you
Think of me
Protecting you
From the sadness
Of the stray moments





For the one special person ~ I am always here for YOU.

Presence


Another Love song for you today.





Presence  -  25 Dec 15

I felt her here
Beside me
Within my reach
Her Love flowed over me
An ocean wave
Lifted me
Carried me
Into her embrace
Her presence
Warm and protective
I knew
I was home at last






I Love Love songs ~ hope you do too.

No Doubt


A little Lust song today.





No Doubt  -  24 Dec 15

She left me
She knew what she wanted
There was no doubt
In my mind
She left me
Craving more
She offered it
… Slowly
…..............Slowly





And I make no apologies whatsoever.

Moon Whispers


Those little Love messages carried by a secret messenger.





Moon Whispers  -  23 Dec 15

She carried a message
Whispered words
From my Lover
Telling me how much
She Loved me

The Moon knew
Because I had confided
In her so many times
I feel thart she whispered
To my Lover too





My favourite messenger, always maintains the confidences.

Another Curtain


This play is closing ~ a new one will open soon.





Another Curtain  -  22 Dec 15

Curtains of rain
Cloak the point of sunset
Hide the Solstice marker

Another curtain
Slowly falls
The mummers make
The final moves
In the last act of
The play of the year

Applause from the auditorium
Shares appreciation
With those who played





The mummers will rest but the Muse never does.

Portal Into Time


Thoughts around the time of the Winter Solstice.





Portal Into Time  -  21 Dec 15

We had waited
For the gate to open
Time's way
Rain flowed
But the Solstice Bell
Called
And we moved
Forward





Always moving forward into the immenseness of time.

Afternoons [Acrostic]


The title is really self-explanatory.





Afternoons [Acrostic]  -  20 Dec 15

All through the hours
Falling leaves imitating
Time sand in an
Empty hourglass
Raking the tiny flowers
Now giving the last perfume
Out into the world
On wings of dream
Now eyes closed
Sleeping in the afternoons





Those Lovely gentle sleeps which make afternoons complete.

Drifting Through A Dream


Remembering those, seemingly never-ending, afternoons.





Drifting Through A Dream  -  19 Dec 15

In a never ending afternoon
Thoughts wander
Sometimes coalesce 
Around a seed of an idea
Warming it to see
What grows

The seed of a dream
Warm in my mind
Carries a special
Story of what
We want to grow
Drifting happily





Warm summer days never ended.

Safe Harbour


A gentle Love song.





Safe Harbour  -  18 Dec 15

Drifting into the arms
Of a Lover
Who cares
Protects
Safe against all storms
A gentile kiss
Harbour lights
A soft sweet smile
To guide the way





This seems to be continuing the theme of protection.


Monday, 4 January 2016

Protection


Another Dragon song.





Protection  -  17 Dec 15


Warm breath
Supple tail wrapped
Around us
Protection
From imagined evils
We wrapped in each other
Gently bound by
The Dragon's tail
Safe from the world





I Love Dragons

Watching In The Mist


A Love song of waiting about to be fulfilled.





Waiting In The Mist  -  16 Dec 15

Watching
For you to appear
You told me
You were on your way
To see me
Mist wrapped me
In a cool blanket
But still
I watched

I see your ship


Watching
Waiting for the harbour
To become clear
Lights shining
Halos in the mist

I see you





Lovely feeling, knowing that you are about to see the one you Love.

Rapt In You


A Love song but so much more.





Rapt In You  -  15 Dec 15

You captivated me
Wrapped me in a dream
Silken fingers hold me
Bound with your Love
Threads of gossamer
Tie my Heart to yours
With a Lover's knot





A Love song for a very special person.

Harlequin


This poem is dedicated to a rose bush I used to know from many years ago.





Harlequin  -  14 Dec 15

Rainbow robes
Swirl in the excitement
Of the dance
A rose
Showing many faces
Harlequin
Unexpected
Rainbow masks
Hiding smiles
Shining eyes





Shame it got left behind in the move, I hope the new owners of my old house are caring for the rose.
