Moon Dreamer

Midnight

not a sound

at that moment

Moonlight luminescence

Heaven of diamonds

A magical glow

The magical glow

Let the memories linger on …

Rainbow Over The Lake

Sun’s rays

in misty rain

multi-coloured rainbow

paints the sky

Above the blue lake

birds gliding

waltzing in the breeze

Verdant pastures

wildflowers and haystacks

never ending stretches

of undulating

green hills

a wildflower

things that pulse

with life

give way

to hearts of mortar

Awakening The Charm

Finally

when rain begins to fall

pitter patter

pitter patter

 the wind

that stirs the trees

wind that sets

the blue gum leaves

swaying violins

playing winter’s song

the warmth of crackling wood

awakening the charm

of winter’s beauty

Southern Lights

The shore was kissed

by sea and mist

glowing allure across the sky

ethereally brilliant colours

The night is an open book

but the world beyond it

remains a mystery …

A Star Tonight

It was fascination

the moon grows bright

Stars will stop

where they are

The sky is light

Tonight, tonight

Here you are

what was just

the world is

A star tonight

Changing Perceptions

Moment by moment

Flashback in time

Will we think differently

Now?

Under Tropical Skies

In the hazy moonlight

down by the seashore

magic is the moonlight

shining in your eyes

there we’ll meet

on the isle of dreams.

The Magic Of Autumn

The rustling leaves

of season’s colour

The rustic shades

of crimson and gold

When sunrise shone

in wondrous splendour

the wind rustled

to a thousand violins

awakening harmony

charm of autumn’s beauty

in gold and blue

that glorious morn

that magic of autumn.

A Field Of Dreams

Sunlight filtering

through leafy trees

handcrafted sculptures

the garden café

bustling with life

reminding us that

we are not solitary islands

we meet to catch up

so no matter how

lonely it may appear

you are not alone.

~

Write your words

or speak out loud

like on a stage

a field of dreams

where words are birds

set free from their cage

watch them fly

wings stretched wide

they glide through

the wind in a way

that is just different.

Echoes Of Love

Vast, vast as the ocean

high as the heavens above

Stars twinkling brilliantly

all is still

Silent is the night

Imagine …

the beauty all around

and the music of the sea

the music of the sea

echoes love.

Magic Sails

I watched the red sails

out on the ocean

in the warm glow

of the fading sun

soft ripples

glistening waters dance lightly

like ballerinas nimble

tiptoeing the ballet

Magic Flute

pirouetting, twirling

something dreamy

magical tranquility.

A Christmas Fantaisie

Beyond The Blue Sky …

And the raindrops

tumble all around

Heaven opens so magically

There’s a rainbow somewhere

beyond the blue sky

There’s sunshine

and bluebirds singing

chiming in the breeze

Bluebells dancing

as the clouds drift away.

Silence Is Golden

One lone star at night

soon the sky is crowded with

countless scintillating lights

~

Thousands of stars across

the silent night

illuminates brilliantly, sparkling

~

This beautiful heavenly night

and the stillness

how could I forget

this tranquility?

this moment of inspiration.

Let There Be Love

And now you ask

what is your message

your verse and poetry

it is a rainbow

of song and dance

a symphony of love

poetry, rhythm, music …

of pine trees

and the deep, deep sea

syllables

that will dance

pirouette

into dreams

to remind us

of glorious morning

and of promise and hope.

~

Kaleidoscopic visions

and music of

ten thousand violins

to capture

the magic and beauty

of a dazzling night sky

of the works of Creation

unfathomable

incomparable

the poet sings

a song of love and passion

Let there be love …
