Circling Of Thought

by

Hope



The edge of the jetty
Circles with my toes
Widespread ripples
Mind thought flows

Unhurried stillness
In my silent reverie
Toes broke surface
Circles reflected me

Mirrors on the lake
Circles grew whole
Thoughts to deliver
Soothing of the soul

The night drew nigh
The shadows blend
On lakes tranquillity
Circles have no end

For there tomorrow
There will always be
Circling of thoughts
Introspections of me


Poem Left Undone

by

Hope


A poem left undone
Its not old nor new
Few lines scattered
A date not yet due

Much like the fruit
Removal of peeling
Adding to the taste
Flavour and feeling

Colours and shape
Adding to quantity
It begins its growth
Its much like a tree

The young saplings
Or fruit on the vine
As a poem undone
All grow given time

Outline then to text
All sections in part
Spreading as a tree
Branches of a heart

In adding of verses
Its never a deletion
Its a poem growing
Waiting completion


Love Travelling Oceans

by

Hope


His lips touch the words
My heart lovingly versed
I drank from his charms
In pleasures immersed

Togetherness emerges
With loving connection
Ever sweet and tender
In embracing affection

Each loving sentiment
Felt from the first hello
Fulfilling hearts desire
With passionate glow

Heart to heart reached
In whispered devotions
Touched a special way
Love travelling oceans

With Star Kissed Invitations

by

Hope


Of emotional expressions
When sharing parts of me
Visualising through words
Which pieces do you see

Do I colour your thoughts
Is there mental stimulation
What pictures on my mind
Can hold such fascination

Did I become transparent
Can you see right through
Are my feelings conveyed
If when opened up to view

Heart dips in love and lust
Imagination led to believe
Was this mind over matter
Or my heart on my sleeve

With star kissed invitations
Hopefully to flow endlessly
My mind sketches dreams
Of heartstrings in harmony

The Rainbow Rivulets

by

Hope


What should I change
Where could I begin
Exclusively viewing
The outside looking in

Here heart and mind
Decide what to keep
I am reviewing facts
Whilst delving in deep

Maintaining balance
Life's high and lows
Emotions seek light
What stays,what goes

The rainbow rivulets
Smoothed the flow
Artistic outlet within
Given an healing glow

Collage Of Here And There

by

Hope


Bits and pieces compiled
My verses here and there
Among the pages penned
Of happiness and despair

A scrapbook of emotions
Those feelings at that time
Scribbled for the purpose
Placing my heart to rhyme

Writing became a journey
Upon a poetic endeavour
Twists and turns are many
Of verses pieced together

Circulating amongst notes
Collage of here and there
In balancing high and low
My ramblings I am aware

With my mind over matter
Each verse was set apart
Creating the passageway
Of poetic path to my heart

So I Hang On In Hope

by

Hope


The week passed by
I was wishing and hoping
So I hang on in hope
Became a way of coping

Being foolishly misled
Wishes never came true
So I hang on in hope
Then write of missing you

I wrote of my gratitude
Expressed a special way
So I hang on in hope
My heart longing each day

Notes that say I care
My heart longing wistfully
So I hang on in hope
Perhaps soon you will see

The Melancholy Blues

by

Hope


Boredom writes plain
Depression pens dark
I had shed another tear
Upon a questionmark

All became complex
Parts interconnected
Supposing the worse
As feelings collected

Silence with thoughts
Until strength is gained
Where page after page
Became tear stained

In the too hard basket
It became obvious why
Being clouded in doubt
Upon each page I cry

In my poetic demise
This is nothing unique
When doubting myself
Confidence is weak

Words had departed
Taking away my muse
Anxieity began to sing
The melancholy blues

With A Stroke Of A Key

by

Hope



Written are those tales
Dancing to each tune
Across cyberspace
Gazing star and moon

With her painted mask
Dancing to seduction
He pulls her strings
She followed instruction

Threaded to his words
So flexible and pliable
At every keystroke
She was ever reliable

The dangerous liason
She foolishly dangled
Without a safety net
Heartrings entangled

Love does silly things
Yet grateful was she
Allured and enticed
With a stroke of a key

Hope

The Language Of Love

by

Hope


Thank you for the cards
So lovingly translated
I smiled because of you
My heart feels elated

Had you read my mind
It must be telepathy
You were in my thoughts
When you wrote to me

The echoing vibrations
Of hearts in harmony
Our minds do think alike
I feel sure you agree

Thoughts synchronise
Innermost revealing
Loving wishes express
Warmth with feeling

The language of love
Shared affectionately
Togetherness in unison
Of infinite intimacy

Treat Carefully Please

by

Hope



Where are my wings
Where should I soar
There is a poem in me
A heart awaits to pour

Who would befriend
Who would be there
Never can I be certain
Still I needed to share

Where could I begin
Where was it going
Would timing be right
With fairness flowing

Could I safely reveal
Could our love grow
My heart in question
Had wanted to know

Would you be gentle
Would you appease
Remember its fragile
Treat carefully please

Hope

Can The Heart Be Heard

by

Hope


Thoughts I need to write
I gave my pen the task
My heart needs to flow
Questions I need to ask

Often the need to clarify
Inviting the written word
When I write you letters
Can the heart be heard

To whom I have trusted
This my heart given link
Words to communicate
Do they make you think

In words written for you
Thoughts come to light
Did you read my heart
I was hoping you might

From Way Out Of The Blue

by

Hope



Surprising what we gather
From way out of the blue
Places my mind wanders
I know yours wanders too

Together we have shared
From way out of the blue
Thoughts being the same
Quite often we rendevous

Minds they have travelled
From way out of the blue
From this shore to yours
Many thoughts we accrue

When brightening my day
From way out of the blue
To our drifting in dreams
Our thoughts lovingly true

We withstand any storms
From way out of the blue
Whispering to ones mind
Touches feelings with you

Accepted and respected
From way out of the blue
Thoughts forever inviting
Where caring hearts flew

Fingertips Spoke To Me

by

Hope


With those fingertips talking
In greeting card and letter
The concern he showed me
Already I was feeling better

Sweet were his sentiments
From so many miles away
The warmth I had felt within
Had truly brightened my day

I cherished those thoughts
When I had needed that lift
The best pick-me -up tonic
Was his loving friendship gift

His special fun loving style
He will always hold the key
The tender way he touched
When fingertips spoke to me

Once There Was Reason

by

Hope



Going around in circles
The passion is still there
I am trying to find words
Not getting anywhere

Once there was reason
It was easier back then
You has fed my desires
Giving purpose to pen

Was I wasting my time
I found nothing to write
In the grey matter stew
Was the end in sight

Whats left for me to say
You don't already know
I hurt from your silence
Words cease to flow

Hope

Misty Blue And Hazy

by

Hope


Just having downtime
Felt depressingly sad
Able to keep my sanity
Well the little I had

The depths of despair
Not quite on the brink
Felt lowness of spirits
Disenchanted I sink

Blue setting the tone
In melancholy mood
By worrying anxiously
Doldrums I brood

Within the emptiness
Of me missing you
Heart feels neglected
I thought you knew

The tunnel darkened
Misty blue and hazy
A spark I'm awaiting
I'm not totally crazy

Passion Fills The Chapters

by

Hope



I thought of you last night
Then more thoughts today
There always on my mind
Thoughts continue to play

Close my eyes to dream
I found you there with me
Placing my pen to paper
I thought of you constantly

Within happiest musings
My thoughts rendezvous
Amongst wishful thinking
Are the reveries with you

You're never too far away
As thoughts lovingly flow
Passion fills the chapters
Where imaginations glow
