Days when clouds appear Like Constable's brush strokes Cool and clear Unreal like a picture In a coffee table book Changing heavens above A palette full spectrum Twisting like end of day Dibs and dabs before Night fades to black Why I sit inside Mesmerised By just one Snapshot in time?
Nightly thoughts invade Missed chance blooming Once a year Beauty and opportunity Keeping me awake How long till next opening? Keeping me grounded Expectantly waiting Indefinitely Crowds gather round me Knowing Queen of the night Stood over me Displaying her colours For one glorious moment From then on I became More like myself Each passing day
Take you with me Everywhere I go Wherever I stay Yet pieces of you Will be strewn Carefully Tenderly As I speak out A love that dared As I shed scales Off laden wings Turning transparent Emptying Evolving As we all are Portraying colour Residing within Becoming again A heart That sings
Doubts like spaces Between numbered dots On blank page Each time I skip Over the chasm Leaping in well-known Logical progession I slip and start again Until one day Dots and lines gone Hand guided by eye alone No longer fall But fly on
A massage Smoothing over All hard places Flooding in Joints and sinew Touching pain Bringing healing Warm movement Entering in Tentatively Slow moving statue Rising up again Brought to life Ready for anything
Stay Not long enough To admire your Kaleidescope of colour Drifting away On the next breath Of wind as I exhale Disappointed Yet inspired To have known you In the first place Lie in wait in case She returns to our First meeting place Wondering weather Does lightning strike In the same place? Random encounters Rouse hopefulness Capture the infinite Beauty of a moment Chance encounters Of your kind
