Taken Me


A Love song and a thank you message.





Taken Me  -  07 Nov 17

You always had me
Captivated
Ever since the first moment
You had taken me
Into your Heart
Held me in a way
No one else had ever done
Now I am yours







Just for YOU.

Twilight


Another of the observations.





Twilght  -  06 Nov 17

Lasting all day
Not quite dark
Neither is it light
Carrying the image
Of night
Into the waking thoughts
Shrouding everything
In twilght







Open your eyes and see the gloom.

Silver In The Night


Looked out of my bedroom window and saw this.





Silver In The Night  -  05 Nov 17

Ragged halo around a jet-black cloud
Silver in the sky
Beams from the hidden Moon
Painted across the stars
Coins of rain clatter on my window
As the wind drives them







I have seen some beautiful things late at night.

Eyes Opened


One of those special Love songs.





Eyes Opened  -  04 Nov 17


I watch you
With eyes opened
By your beauty
Never expected
Always welcomed
You have enchanted me
Now you take me
Along the next step
Seeing anew







Seeing beauty.

And Now


One of those tender sensuous poems.





And Now  -  03 Nov 17

Arms around held gently
Tender embrace
Fingertips smoothly stroke
Inviting a sensual response
And now wandering touches
Go further







Sensuous is good.

Sleep


We have all been in this space.





Sleep  -  02 Nov 17

Sleep does not want to let me go
Keeps calling me back
Whispers in my mind
Reminding me how comfortable
Warm
Protecting
Bed is
How I really want to be there
Sleep tempter
I try to resist





It is so difficult to resist sometimes.

Dancing Through A Dream


A formally structured Haikū today.





Dancing Through A Dream  -  01 Nov 17

Feet rhythmic movement
Feather light stepping gently
Dancing through a dream







Whatever the structure I Love doing these.


Friday, 10 November 2017

New Dreaming


Watching the dreams form.





New Dreaming  -  31 Oct 17

In a land where thoughts roam free
Dreams are birthed
They wander across the fields of night
Exploring possibilities
Of starlight wrapped moments
Dreaming new worlds
New places







Exploring with them.

Days Dance


An illustration of the way the days move.





Days Dance  -  30 Oct 17

Quick succession
Blur the forms
Reshaping memories
Reforming me
The dance of the days
Irresistible rhythm
Taking feet to the dance







We are all drawn into the dance.

Looking


When I accepted the "Seven Day Challenge" to post seven photographs to my Facebook page I intended to put certain images up but for whatever reason I could not find them.





Looking  -  29 Oct 17

Searching for an image
To satisfy a quest
Unfound
Others present themselves
Unexpectedly
Still looking







I think I managed to satisfy the challenge requirements.


Tuesday, 7 November 2017

Veil Thins


A modern Haikū today.





Veil Thins  -  28 Oct 17

A different year closes
The veil between the worlds
Thins to allow sight







Vision opens.


Monday, 6 November 2017

Evening Hand


A sensual offering today just because.





Evening Hand  -  27 Oct 17

Gentle touch
Smooth hand
Contacts through the day
The evening touch
Is more special
More personal and
Intimate
I welcome your touch







Hope you enjoyed the touch.

Clifftop Dragons


I am often aware of the presence of the Dragons.





Clifftop Dragons  -  26 Oct 17

They watch
Blowing cloud
In the air
Confusing unwary
So they can play
Dragons on the cliff top
Smile as they play







Hear them, feel them, watch them play.

Evening


One of those statements, the days are growing colder.





Evening  -  25 Oct 17

Chill air after a cool day
Cloak drawn close
To fend off the edge
As the last touch
Of sunlight fades
Cold evening surrounds
I walk into the night







The nights are getting darker and I need a good cloak.


Friday, 3 November 2017

Trees Dance


Another subtle observation.





Trees Dance  -  24 Oct 17

Cloud shrouds hills
Valleys too
In the blanket
Trees dance
When they think
They cannot be observed
From a window
I watch
Gently smile
As they dance







Look from your window the next time the low-flying cloud rolls in.

What I Want


Turning dreams into reality.





What I Want  -  23 Oct 17

Moments from a dream
Wrapped in the jewels
Of sweet memories
Yet to be formed
As we start to think them







YOU help me with this.


Wednesday, 1 November 2017

Picture Of You


Always with me.





Picture Of You  -  22 Oct 17

In my pocket
I keep a picture of you
Something for me
To look at whenever
I feel the need
To be with you







I am never without that picture.

Wind Singer


You can hear all the songs if you just listen.





Wind Singer  -  21 Oct 17

Wordless songs
Melody is enough to inspire
The singer in creating
A gentle song
To be carried on the wind
Listen for it with your Soul







Can you her them?


Monday, 30 October 2017

Eventide


An observation in reality and in thought.





Eventide  -  20 Oct 17

Sun gathers the remnants
Of the day
In the slow gathering dark
Under the purple sky
Royal eventide
The robes of night
Draw close







Gathering thought.


Sunday, 29 October 2017

Asking


Asking a very important question.





Asking  -  19 Oct 17

Always polite
Never demanding
Just asking if you might
Consider
Loving me







The answer is so valuable.


Saturday, 28 October 2017

Ancient Stories


Having been in these stories I can vouch for the truth of them.





Ancient Stories  -  18 Oct 17

Rooted in the worlds of dream
But always wrapped in truth
The ancient stories
Tell of special sacred Love
While the gods
Drink their wine







An interesting time.


Friday, 27 October 2017

Have You


A question to which I know my answer.





Have You  -  17 Oct 17

Ever wondered
How our Love began
Still grows
Have you
All I know is
That I am happy
More than I have ever been
I am content







Love grows always.

Whispers At Daybreak


Have you ever listened to the whispers?





Whispers At Daybreak  -  16 Oct 17

The bed tells a story
Of journeys in the night

Questing for lost treasure
To satisfy the King

Sailing on an ocean of stars
To discover new worlds

At daybreak the sheets
Tell the tales in whispers







Beds could tell some really fascinating and revealing stories.

Dancing With The Storm


Another modern Haikū today.





Dancing With The Storm  -  15 Oct 17

Trees move to a random beat
As a whistle plays a lament
Dancing with the storm







One of my favourite poem forms.


Tuesday, 24 October 2017

Pictures Form


One of the fun things about living in the far west of Cornwall is the fairly frequent appearance of low-flying cloud.





Pictures Form  -  14 Oct 17

Watching
Wondering what I will see
Out of the mists
Pictures form
Insubstantial
Slowly taking shape
Within the grey
Colours
Become real
To become







Become what?  Whatever they want.

Gathering Of Thoughts


This is the way my mind works.





Gathering Of Thoughts  -  13 Oct 17

Difficult to tell
Is a conference or just
A murder of crows
Black feathered thoughts
Gather on my horizon
Awaiting some event







Before you start to get worried "a murder of crows" is the group name.

Talking In My Mind


This Love song was partially inspired by a request to include a certain line in one of my poems.





Talking In My Mind  -  12 Oct 17

Words develop into thoughts
I talk with you often
In my mind
Share ideas and feelings
On a deep and secret level
Only you will ever know
My Heart revolves around you







YOU know which line.


Saturday, 21 October 2017

A Handful Of Stars


I do not quite know how to introduce this poem apart from calling it a Love song.





A Handful Of Stars  -  11 Oct 17

Cosmic dice
Cast by an unseen hand
Form patterns
Which the mind joins
Into images
To understand
A handful of stars
I can see you
Constellation







A constellation of YOU.

Little Dreams


These dream seeds can be found everywhere.





Little Dreams  -  10 Oct 17

Dream seeds dropped
By the paths
Little dreams
To be found
Gathered
Sown in the fields of sleep
To grow







They can provide an interesting harvest.


Thursday, 19 October 2017

Time


One of those images which is more than just a dream.





Time  -  09 Oct 17

For the moment
She danced in my thoughts
Time slowed for me
To enable a clearer view
I watched her movemnts
Pleasing dance with time







Nearly shifting into reality.


Wednesday, 18 October 2017

I Knew You


A Love song which has been growing for a very long time.





I Knew You  -  08 Oct 17

When the dream of the Universe
Was still young
We were together building the dream
I knew you then
I know you still
And the dream grows







A really Lovely dream.

Walk With Me


The title says it all.





Walk With Me  -  07 Oct 17

Invitation
To share a space
Through a walk
In our lives and times
We can explore
A thousand worlds
With just a thought
Thee and me
Together







Hand in hand and Hearts together.

La Luna Del Cacciatore


This poem was birthed when I saw the Harvest Moon rising.  It immediately reminded me of a line from a movie which referred to "La Luna Del Cacciatore" ~ the Hunter's Moon.





La Luna Del Cacciatore  -  06 Oct 17

When the huntress comes
I shall not hide
She carries Cupid's bow
As her main tool
To attract and capture
Her target
There is no point
In hiding
She knows where I am
I am hers






The movie for those who are interested is "Alien v Predator".


Sunday, 15 October 2017

Wish


A Love song with a magical flavour.





Wish  -  05 Oct 17

Wish
First I ask for you
Wish
Second I ask you want me
Wish
Third I ask if we can be together
Three wishes
Are all I need
For We







We is the most important state of being.


Saturday, 14 October 2017

Feel Me


A little Love song today.





Feel Me  -  04 Oct 17

I am around you
Holding you close
I feel you
Can you feel me

The touch of our Love
Fires our lives
Feel me
Holding you always







Feeling Love flowing.

Ghost Moon


Observation again.





Ghost Moon  -  03 Oct 17

Cloud filled night
Sky completely grey
A hint of light
Behind the cloud
Betrays the presence
Of the ghost moon







Little clues in the sky.


Thursday, 12 October 2017

Little Flower


Another modern Haikū for your delight today.





Little Flower  -  02 Oct 17

Little further
Urged onward by thoughts
Of what flower might be seen







I Love building these.

Laughter Echoes


Those moments when random memories surface.





Laughter Echoes  -  01 Oct 17

In a quiet time
A soft memory
Of a time long past
When a moment of laughter
Returned to me
Echoes in my mind







Sometimes laughing out loud can make people think you are a little odd.


Tuesday, 10 October 2017

Suspended


Just a statement of fact.





Suspended  -  30 Sep 17

I am holding on
Not letting go
Of my dreams
They are all that
Keeps me suspended
Above reality







Dreams are more important than "reality".

You Know My Name


Standing beside the stream and thinking.





You Know My Name  -  29 Sep 17


I stand and watch
As the ripples pass
You have talked with the sea
Shared unspoken secrets
Over the years
You know my name
Though I never said it out loud
Now you must keep the silence
I entrusted you
River keep my secret







This was inspired by a line from an old Doctor Who story when the Doctor was talking with River Song and uses the phrase "River, you know my name".
I changed the concept to allow an actual river to take the place of the person.

In The Wind


Communication of the sweetest kind.





In The Wind  -  28 Sep 17

I taste you
Delicate flavours
Which are yours alone
I feel you
Feeling your presence
In the wind
I feel you
Touching me
Making me know
That you are close
I taste you
I taste your kisses
Inviting me on







Tasting, touching, kissing.

Dreams In The Day


A little dream exploration.





Dreams In The Day  -  27 Sep 17

Awake
But holding images
Of other people
In my life
I dream them
To allow me
To interact with them
In the day
In ways that are not possible
Except in dream







Sometimes the only way to connect.
