Spilling




Ah, dreams,
do not find me.

Move away from the
sheer slips
surrounding,
breathing,
near to
billowing
in my
moonlight sleep.

As if
in lingering,
on the street
beneath
the lamppost's glow,
my lips
spilling
soft whispers
into your
awakened ear.
Your eyes,
set deep,
ablaze
with hazel flames,
speak to me with
whispers
of their own...

not so
softly.


Dear LadyClaire

You do have a way to bring words to life.
"Your eyes set deep, ablaze with hazel flames,"
I'm colorblind, but reading this, makes me wish my eyes were hazel.  Beautiful work.

...and you do, so often, say the nicest things, Mike. Thank you for reading this.

(and I'm curious...even though you are colour blind, your eyes must still have a colour, yes? What colour are they?)

Claire~
Lovely.
I've  also gazed into those eyes ...
heard the whispers through your sighs.

Dear Claire,

Your poetry is always so beautifully fluent and soothing to read.  I liked this poem very much.

From poeminister

 "...no single sound too rude
Upon thy slumber shall intrude,
Our thoughts, our souls- O God above!
In every deed shall mingle, love."
--Edgar Allan Poe (from Serenade)

I do so love... the way you whisper Claire  
this is lovely.
take care, jm

 Now for me some words come easy
But I know that they don't mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch
You never knew what I loved in you
I don't know what you loved in me
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be

Claire,
   WOW....that's all I can say...you've stunned me with the blinding beauty of your words and of your soul...very well done.

JML, I'm glad to know you are listening. Thank you for reading.
