Watching the movement.

Waves  -  11 Sep 17

In form
Sea shows the power
Says look at me
I can dance for you
I can dance with you
Let the strength
Of my waves
Carry you
To another world

Sometimes the sea can take us to unsafe places.

Wednesday, 20 September 2017


Just open your ears.

Listen  -  10 Sep 17

The trees share their wisdom
Birds gather
Add their voices
To the song of the world
In the whispering rain
As the morning awakes
Listen to the dreamsong

So many things to hear.

A statement of fact.

Touched Me  -  09 Sep 17

In the moment she touched me
I knew that she owned my Soul
Her Love burned through me
With a joyful flame
Destroying sadness in
An instant
I am hers

She is someone special.

After The Rains

Sunset observations.

After The Rains  -  08 Sep 17

Peaceful but never silent
The wind still talks
Darkness begins to gather
As from below the horizon
The sun tints
The edges of cloud

Calm as darkness falls.

The Journey

Inspired, if that is the right word, by a visit to a podiatrist seven miles away.

The Journey  -  07 Sep 17

With unexpected results
A hint of rain
Then the meeting failed
I returned home
With pain

The problem was that the podiatrist did not make the appointment as told me she did.

Rain On Water

This has a Zen like feel.

Rain On Water  -  04 Sep 17

Tears shed
From a rain filled sky
Blinking back the deluge

Rain on water

A lot of my poems have that feel but this one more than most.

A kiss for each day
On the river
We share them

Kisses are good.

A Love song with a hint of something more.

I Watch  -  02 Sep 17

You build and invite me
To share

Some Lovely thoughts.

September Song [Acrostic]

Celebrating the start of September.

September Song [Acrostic]  -  01 Sep 17

Secrets gather in the quiet of an
Evening as dusk gathers around the
Passion smouldering waiting
To be awakened again
Emerald forests
Move in syncopated rhythm
Before darkness hides
Everything from

Sacred dreams dance
Over nightfall
Nocturnal spirits
Gather again

Beauty in the darkness.

Dreaming Moon

An observation from various times.

Dreaming Moon  -  30 Aug 17

Into a silent dream

In the west at the right time of the moonth.

Magic is sealed

Do I Want

Sometimes the correct and valid answer is never understood.

Do I Want  -  28 Aug 17

Always being asked
Always told
This is important
My simple answer
Is never appreciated
Do I want

Why is complicated better?

Our minds know.

Touching  -  27 Aug 17

Feeling you
Knowing what you want
Allowing our minds
To do all the touching
Our minds know what they
Really want
We have to keep
Out of the way
Let them do the

Just sit back and enjoy.

Wind Talking

Over long periods I have seen and heard these things.

Wind Talking  -  18 Aug 17

Whistling between the branches
Slap the cords
Against the flagpole
Beating a rhythm
To counterpoint
The pattern of speech
Listen to the wind talking

The wind sometimes whispers and sometimes shouts.

Right on the edge of limite surréaliste.

Now  -  17 Aug 17

Eventide opening into
A windswept day
Black leaves
Scattered across the sky
Sun settng
Throws silhouettes
Into the now
Shape the night

Watching the shapes in the night.

Rain Dark

A weather observation.

Rain Dark  -  16 Aug 17

Stippled drip by reluctant drip
From a rain dark sky

And soon the stone becomes rain dark as well.

Sliding In The Night

Observations of the mysteries.

Sliding In The Night  -  14 Aug 17

Silken shadows
Hold the mysteries of night
Revealed only to those

The echoes
Of the wishes of the dark
I dream of you

Observing YOU.

An exploration of Love and what can happen if you let it.

Reaching Within  -  12 Aug 17

Her hand brushed my chest
She smiled
Reached into my Soul
Touched me
More intimately
Than I have ever been
Took my Heart
Laid me bare for her
To see within
Know my Love
She kissed me

Allow the contact for full experience.

On The Verge

My offering today is based around the first card in the Major Arcana of the Tarot, "The Fool"

On The Verge  -  11 Aug 17

A moment in my life
Brings me to the verge
Of paradise
Shows me the next step

Invites me
To step forward
Into the unknown
And see

Taking chances and discovering.

Rain Again

A statement about wetness.

Rain Again  -  08 Aug 17

The sky is leaking
A gentle torrent
To refill the puddles
Along the road
Pale grey cloud
Hides the sun again
Rain everywhere

Holiday season and we have low-flying cloud and rain to offer the visitors to west Cornwall.

Friday, 18 August 2017


This resulted from watching the rain and thoughts of something else entirely.

Drips  -  07 Aug 17

Leaves hold onto
The passing rain
Washing themselves
In the cascade
Drips wash my mind
And my Soul

What else?  I am not telling.

Speculation into the it might be worlds.

Anticipation  -  06 Aug 17

The thoughts of
What might happen
Inspire the mind
To start dreaming
To build a
What if
Scene of maybe

Just to what is waiting.

Yet another modern Haikū today.

Waiting For The Moon

Observation of a day closing.

Waiting For The Moon  -  04 Aug 17

The sun considered setting
Into a murky cloud
The western sky
A brownish haze
To the east
Silver shone
On the lip of the horizon
Selene was coming

The silver light is beautiful.

The Web

A Love song with a spidery theme.

The Web  -  01 Aug 17

Ariadne wove
A silken spell
Softer than a dream
A bed with you
Enriched with Damask
To wrap the senses
Claiming me

Beautiful Ariadne wove a bed for us.

Watching the changes.

Darkness  -  31 Jul 17

Hidden from the light
In streams of shadow
I watch
The movement shape
The darkness
Into new forms

Watching and waiting.

Carried By The Wind

One of those images which can be heard anywhere.

Carried By The Wind  -  29 Jul 17

Thought drifting
On a stream of memory
Formed of images
Shaped in the dream
Carried in darkness
By the song of the rain

No I am not confused, images can be heard.

In A Wish

Passion and dreams often work together to produce something bigger.

In A Wish  -  28 Jul 17

A dream coloured by Love
In ways which were
Invoked by Passion

Open it
In a wish
