Meet Me On The Beach

Let us prepare for a journey of exploration.

Meet Me On The Beach  -  06 Sep 16

The tide is right for us
Flowing to our feet
Ready to take us
On a journey
Into our secret world
We are ready to leave
Meet me
Meet me on the beach

Let us go.

In The Cloud

Composed on a day which resembles a lot of horror or mystery stories.

In The Cloud  -  05 Sep 16

Hoof beats
Low flying cloud
Horses hidden
Phantom day riders
Fly through our daydream
Spur the fantasy
Into something real
In the swirling cloud

Some sounds are untraceable because of the low-flying cloud.

Lurking Shadows

When darkness crawls.

Luking Shadows  - 04 Sep 16

Dark cloud
Lays extreme shadow
Across the land
Sun hidden

From their lairs
The lurking shadows
Plot to create

The shadows wait.

September Rains

Quite a wet month so far, it is raining as I write this poet.

September Rains  -  03 Sep 16

September rains came
To wash summer
From the sky
Soft pencil sketch
Shades of grey
The world turns
Days blend into greys

Watching the wind-blown curtains of rain across the fields west of here.

Inner Light

This is a description of a very special person.

Inner Light  -  02 Sep 16

The bright glow of Passion
In a way which illumined
All the world
Showed the strength
Of her inner light
And lit my life

YOU know who that special person is.

In The Light Of Night

One of the mystical observations today.

In The Light Of Night  -  01 Sep 16

Darkness painted
With the brush of Moon
Silver lines
On branches
Against the sky
Night glows
With an Elven light
Brings the night
To life

Watch for the light.

Night Moves

This seems to be a new addition to the Chess Game" sequence.

Night Moves  -  31 Aug 16

The knights dance
Before the court
Intricate steps confusing
Onlookers not expecting
The shifts
Of tempo

In the darkness of night
Unexpected moves
Touch the passing figures
In the dance
A bishop gives his

I hope I can take it further.

When I Was

The search that everyone undertakes at some point.

When I Was  -  30 Aug 16

In other times
I was questing
For an answer
To questions which may not
Have answers

I have touched a future me
But answers
Still elude me
I still look

Often the answers cannot be found.

It is quite disturbing how things can lurk and haunt the unsuspecting.

Shadows  -  29 Aug 16

Hiding in plain sight
Forgotten because
Seen frequently
They know too well
The unwanted thoughts
Of the restless mind
Hoped to be forgotten
In the light of day
Futile hopes because
Every shadow tells a story

There are shadows on every wall.

Wind Calling

Another offering in the "Five Thousand Miles" sequence.

Wind Calling  -  28 Aug 16

From the west
I hear your voice
Soft statements of Love
Whispered in the wind
Carried to me
From five thousand miles
To nestle in my Heart
And tell me of you

A little Love song for YOU.

Waiting For Changes

One of the signs of autumn, change creeps across the land.

Waiting For Changes  -  27 Aug 16

The winds have shifted
Cold edge to the air
As the old moves
To protect its existence
In the moment of movement
Change can be seen forming
Now we wait
For the Transformation

We change too.

Old Memories Watching

Interesting how reading something can trigger a new thought.

Old Memories Watching  -  26 Aug 16

A book flipped open
By random gusts of wind
Pages carry ancient memories
All watch as thoughts
Tumble in a dance
Of chaos
Meaningless ideas of
What may have resulted
From continued connection
Of the fragment of time
Futile ideas
And still the memories watch

Inspired by “Watching Old Memories” published 03 Aug 16

Moon Flower

A slightly surreal Love song wrapped around the Moon.

Moon Flower  -  26 Aug 16

Subtle scent of silver
Petals glow
In their own light
Perfume dances
On my tongue
Moon flower
Wraps my mind
Takes me on a journey
Where silver
In a dream
Smells sweet

Smell the Moon.

Talking In My Sleep

Conversations with YOU while we sleep.

Talking In My Sleep  24 Aug 16

Sweet conversation
Fills my mind
Thoughts shared with you
Openly delightful
Long involved
Deeply meaningful
We discussed our yesterday
How tomorrow could form
How we might explore
And taste the delights
When I wake
We will taste them

The discussions can be really deep sometimes.

Painting With Sound

Art and music and Soul song.

Painting With Sound  -  23 Aug 16

The music of the spheres
Wordless harmonies
Through Heart song
Images formed in mind
Through sound
Your voice paints
Your portrait
In the colours of the stars
I see you

Listen to the pictures.

Taste The Unexpected

The unexpected often holds the sweetest flavour.

Taste The Unexpected  -  22 Aug 16

Long ago
The forbidden fruit
Was craved by everyone
Then it was eaten
And the craving passed
Desire always asked for more
The unexpected flavour
In an unexpected place
Craving begins again

Craving can be pleasurable too.

Starlight Drifting

Watching and journeying with the stars.

Starlight Drifting  -  21 Aug 16

Open nights
Watching stars on the paths
In their flight
Slow drift
Through the dream of life
Starlight colours my world

Always dreaming.

Dream Kisses

Dreams are wonderful places to start creating.

Dream Kisses  -  20 Aug 16

On the borderline
Between what is
And what might be
We wait
For the moment when
A new now forms
While we wait
Kisses help to form
The dream
Into reality

Wonderful way to find things to work on.

Murmurs In The Night

A gentle Love song today.

Murmurs In The Night  -  19 Aug 16

Wind talking
Trees dance with the rhythm
I listen to your gentle words
Murmuring Love thoughts
Directly to my Heart
As the wind takes your words
To wrap around me
In the night

We have all heard and felt these things.

Summer Winds

Another weather observation.

Summer Winds  -  18 Aug 16

Clear skies through the day
Now in the afternoon
Pushing cloud before it
Wind from the southwest
Carrying a song of rain
Before it can get here
I have a memory of petrichor

I Lovethat smell.

Hanging In The Air

Weather observations happen quite frequently.

Hanging In The Air  -  17 Aug 16

No chance to evade
Pull themselves clear
As they come ashore
Clamber up the cliffs
Crawl across the land
Now the valleys
Covered in cloud
Hanging in the air

A lot of these observations are rain or low flying cloud related.

Friday, 9 September 2016


Just a simple [?] statement.

Together  -  16 Aug 16

In all the ways
And places
We have been
There was never
Any moment
When we were not

We together forever.

Open Night

An invitation to play.

Open Night  -  15 Aug 16

Days so cluttered
Fragments of events
Shattered pieces of old dreams
Swept into corners
Hoping to forget

Nights are different
Clear enough to invite you in
In the corners of my new dream
Thoughts want to play

Inviting you with a wicked smile
To join the game
Play through the night
Forget the clutter
Sleep when we are tired

An open invitation for YOU.

Words which are not really secret.

Code  -  14 Aug 16

A secret language
But not so secret
Just something to transmit
Thoughts in private
To touch the innermost
Intimate self
Stir Passion in the fires
Words to inflame
Je t'Aime

Just to touch YOU.

Time Was

There us an air of clearing out here.

Time Was  -  13 Aug 15

Editing the stream
Removing unwanted thoughts
Until the way is clear
Time was
Has a habit of filling the void
To reinstate the thoughts
The game begins again

This was partially inspired by an old alert I had set up on an old laptop ["The Brick"].
The whole phrase was "Time was and time shall be again."

Monday, 5 September 2016


Always willing to consider changes in direction

Subtle  -  12 Aug 16

Little whispers
Touch my thoughts
Leaving subtle suggestions
To raise my imagination
Give new ideas
What to do next
You offer a new direction
Which allows a different view
A subtle change

I may not actually take them but I will look.

One night each year...

Joker  -  11 Aug 16

Game starts
Opening moves made
Watching the sky
For the signs
Darkness starts to gather
As the cards are laid
Each player claims
The win in turn
Then cloud covers
And with a quiet smile
As the clouds are complete
The final player lays
The joker

My thoughts on the night of the Persied meteor shower

Drifting [Acrostic]

I have not offered an acrostic for a little while.

Drifting [Acrostic]  -  10 Aug 16

Down on the water
Ripples repeat the sun
Infinite dance
Fresh words carried
The stream echoes
In sparkling image
Never repeating
Gifts of ligh

Playing with words.

Dream Of You

A Love song for the one special person.

Dream Of You  -  09 Aug 16

I close my eyes
When I am awake
I see you
I feel you

When I am asleep
My dream eyes open
I see you
I feel the kisses you share

I dream of you
Always and everywhere
I want you
I want you forever

Dreaming YOU constantly,

Thursday, 1 September 2016


Sampling YOU.

Sample  -  08 Aug 16

Tasting you
With a kiss
Small samples
Kiss shows me you
In detail
I know you more now
Than if I just
Talked or watched
