Hideaway

 

Be my hideaway.

When rain descends and soaks my feet,

Light my soul on fire and warm me from inside.

Let’s burn together.

 

Be my hideaway.

When dreams are all I hold and spirit falls,

Light my soul on fire and fuel our reverie.

Let’s rise together.

 

Be my hideaway.

When delight abounds I want to shelter it,

Light my soul on fire and I’ll light yours.

Let’s hide together.

Bathed

I sit in bath poured hot, lavender infused,
Savouring a deserved pause.
I watch snowflakes flitter to their soft resting place.
Glistening; I am illuminated only by streetlight.

I close my eyes and imagine your kiss;
Cool against my hot lips, so thirsty.
You are omnipresent in my life,
Though you bathe me in uncertainty.

A Dream’s Dream

Intro: Last night I experienced a first: A dream within a dream. It was pretty awesome. The vivid imagery of my dreams inspired this poetic recounting of what felt like such a real experience. I will leave it at that, without explication of the meaning….

I walk lightly through perpetual fields,
And wheat beards caress my cheeks.
Overwhelmed by a sea of gold,
And the sweet smell of the countryside.
The sunlight forms a silvery halo
Around thin grey wisps of cloud
Which texturize the azure sky.
Exultantly free, perfectly silent,
I lie down to rest.
I close my eyes, and begin to dream…

In the far off distance, you are there,
Unaware of my presence or my gaze.
Looking out at the cerulean glacial lake,
Contrasted by majestic mountain peaks,
Separated only by immortal evergreens
That reach tenaciously for the Heavens.
Miles exist between us and yet there’s closeness,
A comforting knowledge in each of us
That great distances are bridged by love.

I awaken to my reality,
Peacefully astonished by my dream’s dream.
