An acrostic dedicated to the one special person.

Because [Acrostic]  -  08 Nov 16

Mind's Eye

A Love song with just a little Lust song adding to the chorus.

Mind's Eye  -  07 Nov 16

Watching you
Feeling your Love
Knowing what I see
Is real
Hearing your gentle voice
Echoing the words I speak
Feeling your hands
Smelling your special perfume
These things and more
My mind's eye
Can see

Thinking about the Special One.

Song In The Night

A little poem about an observation and general thoughts.

Song In The Night  -  06 Nov 16

Nightingale takes the melody
Shared with the blackbird
Chorus in the night
Singing in the secret darkness
Of a special world
The song fills everything

I remember listening to blackbirds singing at night when I lived in London.

From Me

A little bouquet for that someone special.

From Me  -  05 Nov 16

Formed from the words
I spoke to you
A bouquet of secret flowers
Presented to you
From me
With Love
To take with you
Wherever you go

Wonder who ~ YOU know.

Autumn Senryū

A form of poem I have not offered for a long time.

Autumn Senryū


Leaves washed from the trees
By heavy rain ~ once crisp now
Soft beneath my feet


Cloud scrapes the hillside
Harvesting the last flowers
For summer's spirit


Autumn holds us all
In a cool tender embrace
Warmth not far away

Quite satisfying I feel.

A Love song for that one special person.

Presence  -  03 Nov 16

I feel you
Around me touching me
Always with me
Your presence
Has melted my barriers
Now I am complete
Your essence
Is within me

YOU know who that special person is.

Memory Flower

A little poem lost in the tradition of keeping pressed flowers in books.

Memory Flower  -  02 Nov 16

Between pages
Of an ancient book
Memories captured
Flowers gathered
From days long gone

Never did this myself but I did keep memories between the pages of a diary I used to write.

Another Time Another Place

Another Love song spanning a very long time.

Another Time Another Place  -  01 Nov 16

In all the places I have seen
Through the millennia
None compares to the world
You have built for me

Another time is carrrying
The essence of your Love
Forming the place where we
Can be forever together

The essence is now in place
Your Love fills us
And we can live it

So many whens and wheres.

Thinking about that One Special Person.

Thoughts  -  31 Oct 16

In my mind
I have held you
Thoughts of you
Remain strong
I can see you
Whenever I want
You are always with me
I am always with you
We journey together
Through our Eternities
Always exploring

YOU know who I am referring to when I say YOU.

Circle Dreams

I was in Tregeseal Stone Circle many years ago and witnessed, in a meditative state, events very similar to those in this poem.

Circle Dreams  -  30 Oct 16

Watching the priestesses
Walking the circle
Blessing the stones
Bringing forth the power
I watch
From the now
Into the then
As the ceremony begins
Is it just a dream
Or am I there
To partake

I was actually watching the events from very many centuries ago.

Winter Coming On

A fitting poem for today when it is dark and wet and cold.

Winter Coming On  -  29 Oct 16

The heady days of summer
Now long passed
The nights are getting longer
Becoming colder
Days cannot seem to hold
As much as they did

The songs of autumn
Just a fading memory
Leaves from the trees
Chased by the wind
Across the ground
Hiding in the corners

Soon only frost
Will rule the world
We shall await the warmth
Of beautiful spring days
But for now we watch
The winter coming on

I have heard that it is worse up-country.

Language Of ...

I wonder if you can work out what the language is.

Language Of ...  -  28 Oct 16

Calling me
With words I do not know
Though the feeling
Needs no translation

I can hear the Love
In everything you say
Can see it in your eyes
Feel it in your gentle touch

You have held me
In ways I cannot express
Your words remain written
In my Heart

Should I tell you or do you need another guess?

Dans le Vent

Another weather observation.

Dans le Vent  -  27 Oct 16

In a moment from the dance
Movements of the leaves
Dancing across the ground
Along the paths
In the wind
Invites my Spirit
To dance along

The translation of the French title is “In The Wind”

Earth Light

Just s little song to explore the mystery.

Earth Light  -  26 Oct 16

All around
Creating mystery
Light of the Earth
Fills the sky
Sings the stars
Opens the world
To a special magic

Have you seen the light yet?

Star Song

All you have to do is be prepared to listen.

Star Song  -  25 Oct 16

At night I listen
In the silence of the world
When all is calm
Voices fill the void
Stars share their music
In the silence of the world
Star song
Fills my heart

Can you hear them now?

Open To You

A Love song with more than a hint of Lust song added.

Open To You  -  24 Oct 16

You touched me
Spoke to me in soft words
Your Love entered me
Held my Heart
Showed me how much you Love me
A Love brighter than the sun
Filled me with your light
Encouraged me to
Open to you

Always open to YOU.

Desire [Acrostic]

An acrosticLove song for that one special person.

Desire [Acrostic]  -  23 Oct 16

Dreams of what I most want
Everything YOU can give me

Relishing the joy of our Love
Endlessly replenishing us

YOU know who this is for.

Hymn Of Autumn

Listening to the celestial monks sing their hymns.

Hymn Of Autumn  -  22 Oct 16

In the cloisters
And the halls
Plainsong by the monks
Echo and build
Sound upon sound
Hear the colours
Of autumn
Join the cadence
Of the hymn

Sing along.

Saturday, 12 November 2016


When the title first inspired me I thought that it would have something to do with music.

Intervals  -  21 Oct 16

In the space between
Then and how
Now forms and shapes
The when

Questions asked
In the silent void
Resound in the darkness
Of the intervals

My thought is still valid but now the symphony of time is focussed.

Friday, 11 November 2016


Muse is always there for me.

Inspiration  -  20 Oct 16

Muse opened her hand
Showed me
What she held
This is yours
She said
When you want
Just reach out
Touch me
Your inspiration

Sometimes her suggestions are a little obscure but they are always interesting.

Daylight Dreaming

The dreams are always present.

Daylight Dreaming  -  19 Oct 16

April in my mind
Blossoms full of promise
Warm snowdrifts in the breeze
Now autumn closing down
Old leaves drift
Across the path
As daylight starts to fade
Dreams of April still shine

Join me in the dream.

Wind Walking

Another observation with a spiritual level to it.

Wind Walking  -  18 Oct 16

Talking walking
The wind answers questions
I ask in my mind
Trees remind me
That the wind
Always listens
Answers are there
To be heard
Wind speaks softly
To those who are aware

Just listen for the soft voice.

Dusk Tales

Words which tell stories.

Dusk Tales  -  17 Oct 16

In the gathering dark
Of late afternoon
The fire is lit
For comfort

The words of ancient stories
Huddle closer
To tell again
Their tales in the dusk

Gather round the fire and listen.

Yesterday Dream

Being aware of how things are and how they change.

Yesterday Dream  -  16 Oct 16

Everything I thought until then
Proved to be unreal
I was left with a false image
From my dream

Today I think I know better
The stories are coming together
Becoming clearer
I think I can see my path
Forward from now

. . .

Wishful thinking ~ perhaps.

Dolphin's Moon

A little poem reflecting on events of the night.

Dolphin's Moon  -  15 Oct 16

Clear sky
Cold night
Full Moon reflects
Chill sun

Return beneath the wave
My Dolphin family
Welcomes me back
From the Moon

Written on the night of the full Moon usually called “The Hunter's Moon” but I preferred a more peaceable name.

Crystals In The Dawn

Observation or memory or perhaps both.

Crystals In The Dawn  -  14 Nov 16

Scattered across the lawn
Refracting rainbows
Crystals wait for the moment
As the sky lightens
Dew trembles
Dawn opens
Wafts the crystals away

I have seen the rainbows on the grass, though not recently.

Listening [Acrostic]

An acrostic for your perusal today.

Listening [Acrostic]  -  13 Oct 16

Let us go
Into the void to listen
Songs tell of the ancient times
Through words from the beginning
Empty now the songs await
Needing only music
Inspiration of the sweetest kind
Nightingales talk about the
Golden era

Listen to the songs around you.

Star Dreams

A little Love song spanning immense distances.

Star Dreams    12 Oct 16

In the sky
I hold you
My dreams are filled
With you
Scintillating dreams
In my eyes
Across my mind
You light me
I dream of the stars

Five Thousand Miles is really only just a step in comparison.

October Song

Rounding off October with a reminder.

October Song  -  11 Oct 16

Wind carries the melody
Woven into a tapestry
Formed from the words
Of autumn
Leaves shaken from the trees
Dance along the road
October wraps the world
In its song

Listen for the songs.

Just to show how a a little Love and protection can really help.

Protector  -  10 Oct 16

Your arms around me
I feel you
Wherever I am
Whatever I am doing
You are with me
You whisper words
Of encouragement
Of protection
You are my guardian
You are my protector
You are my Lover

Being held in the arms is really wonderfully comforting.
