White Ghosts… #Poetry

Grey clouds on white candy
Black clouds carrying heavy rain
Lovers kiss beneath outstretched umbrellas
Rain splashed pavements wait for blue skies
White prisms of light shine on polished leaves
Trees sway, shedding their last teardrops
The earth greedy with thirst
Eagerly swallows each tear
White ghosts painted on blue skies
Light souls shining through
Touching those below, covering
The earth with memory
Waiting to be remembered
Grey clouds dropping rain
Showering the earth with secrets
Children splash in puddles
As other feet did years ago
Lift your face to the clouds
Taste the rain upon your lips
Do you remember?
Does the taste of something lost come to mind?
Clouds will bring the rain again.
Teasing you, daring you to remember
Secrets of the past hidden in each drop
Clouds pass, unseen by many below
Tilt your head, see the magic they make
The shapes and wonder of sky art…
White bleached clouds sail across blue skies
The day is washed clean as if by magic
Pink clouds hiding behind pillars of white
The day sails through to the purple hue of evening
All is well with my world…

Destiny Came Knocking… #Poetry

Image by Luminas Art from Pixabay 

Sailing through the universe, 
      searching for the stone of destiny
Over dark tides, through the spiral arms of the Milky Way
Pulsing gas giants blind you with colour, their majesty
Home, left so far behind, a speck in my mind’s eye
Illuminated by memory, the blue ball keeps spinning
Stars fall, like giant rocks lit by a trail of fire
Taking time to marvel at the hand of God
 inside my chest my heart swells with the beauty,
         ribbons of colour to turn the mind over, 
Collecting my breath with ever colour changing gas clouds
Away beyond infinity all things merge, making new wonders
Tying the universe together like one giant playground
Ending my journey back home, 
      where the stone lay beneath my feet
Destiny came knocking at my own back door…

Under Dark Eyelids… #Poetry

Image by Alicja from Pixabay 
Sliding into darkness, searching for a part of me
Under dark eyelids, there is another I don’t recognise
Playing music underground, reaching above 
       there is a raggedy man searching
Evening rain, stepping out to a face full of tears
Running, slipping, searching for that spark
Intelligence, a dirty word against the graffiti painted walls
Night, a lighter shade of darkness, can I get back there?
Tell my story, in words they will believe
Energise the spark, bring back the shine
Let the Gods of love call my name
Love that holds the spark in gentle hands
Inside the world of dreaming there's a happy ending
Grateful lovers will agree with me
Every touch remembered, a story to tell
Never let the spark go out, keep the darkness away
Catch me before I fall out of love
Ending are lonely, never a happy place to be…

A Dream Space… #Poetry

Image by Stefan Keller from Pixabay ~ Poem by A Dawes

A Dream Space

Inside time there is a dream space
Never has there been a time like now
For dreams to come true
Afraid to sleep, don’t be
Memories fade into shadows
Often repeated in a new life
Under warm covers, you must dream it first
So that you can be reborn...
