Hanging On Uncertainty

by

Hope Smith



Heart wishing and hoping
Hovering on expectation
Needing the voids to fill
Awaiting the explanation

Without the given details
Heart remains on pause
Now your heart is silent
Iím pondering the cause

There must be reasons
My heart needs to hear
Iím hovering on empty
Your purpose not clear

Communication breaks
Something must be said
Fill spaces in my heart
Attach a missing thread

On heartstrings strained
Hanging on uncertainty
With nothing explained
A heart hovers patiently
Hope


Flowing Painted Wings

by

Hope Smith



Poets in written words
Musicians playing tunes
Artists brushing canvas
Of sun , stars and moon

All creating each piece
Poets penned emotions
Musicians in each song
Brush strokes of oceans

Songs, scenes or pages
Framed in colourful hues
All word painted songs
A heartís visionary views

Each artist given pallette
Brushed on heartstrings
All emotionally displayed
On flowing painted wings

Diamonds Shone Bright

by

Hope Smith



Under a golden sunset
When the day is fading
A new reflection glows
Of diamonds parading

Ocean basked orange
In dusks golden glow
Followed by diamonds
That danced to and fro

Upon a dark satin blue
Dance silver reflections
Cast of a thousand stars
Twirl ballet perfections

An ocean danced upon
Stars gracefully dance
On each silver ballerina
The moon cast a glance

Like angels with wings
Swirl in fluttering delight
Neath a moonlight glow
Diamonds shone bright

Duet In Friendship Song

by

Hope Smith



We do know each other
Each day travelled along
Two hearts kept beating
Singing in friendship song

Each knowing the words
Flow songs into the heart
Communications harmony
Friends to friends impart

We both share telepathy
Heartsongs we compose
Sweet notes forever sing
A loving friendship grows

A friendship gained wings
Foundations built strong
The loving understanding
A duet in friendship song

Kaleidoscope Dreams

by

Hope Smith

Kaleidoscope Dreams

The dreaming it builds
While time ticks away
In night resting places
Ever hoping one day!

On shimmering lakes
Free flowing streams
Intimately romancing
Kaleidoscope dreams

We shake away blues
Stars kissing to eyes
Mystical lovers meet
Across lavender skies

Kaleidoscope turning
Dreamscape reflection
Star cross lovers meet
Star glows connection

Brighter and stronger
We dance and sashay
Embracing in dreams
Till night turns to day
Hope


Sending Ones Heart

by

Hope Smith

In Sending Ones Heart

Composing of a letter
Where does one start
Gathering the pieces
Enclosing ones heart

Each thought collects
What shall I display
Should my heart open
What can my heart say

Its here that I hesitate
How do pieces blend
My heart into a letter
What portions to send

Many bits and pieces
Released and mailed
Handing over a heart
With feelings detailed

Explaining, expressing
In penning each part
Each piece of a letter
Surrenders ones heart
Hope

Circling Of Thought

by

Hope Smith


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


Danced Oceans Song

by

Hope Smith



Affinity with the ocean
White surf , salty spray
Stroll along the beach
Reach a secluded bay

Tiny warm rock pools
Reach in with my hand
Whispered waves float
The sea licks the sand

Trickling through toes
Soft waves rolling in
Reaching forth I meet
Ripples caressing skin

Rhythmic waves dance
White capped blue sea
Soothing lapping flows
Lick my body playfully

Beckoned to the edge
Tasting oceans tongue
Embraced ripples flow
I danced oceans song


Creating Kaleidoscopes

by

Hope Smith



Fantasy and imagination
Minds becomes artistic
Other times ones heart
Bring emotions realistic

Often there is the blank
Numbness in the heart
Then imagination plays
To begin a work of art

The material is supplied
For ink and pen to find
Palette painted colours
Of pictures on the mind

Colouring again a view
With mind clear to play
We start with the brush
Dusting cobwebs away

When heart feels empty
If the emotions are still
Take all the gray matter
With imaginations to fill

Creating kaleidoscopes
To a minds filling station
Landscapes, seascapes
Fantasy or imagination

Never to leave it blank
For always new to find
As pens begin to write
The artistry of the mind


Arched Neath Pleasures

by

Hope Smith


Knelt there beside me
Lips brushing my face
Gentle stroke of hands
Across the silken lace

Held closely in dreams
Long for nothing more
Tender kisses to wear
Gown falls to the floor

Arched neath pleasure
Onto the canopied bed
Scented candles aglow
Flowing desires spread

Naked passions shape
Into dreams come true
Creative juices flowing
In the closeness of you


How We Had Talked

by

Hope Smith


We had talked
How it would be
Our island hideaway
Beside sparkling sea

We had talked
How dreams grew
Enlarging the picture
Developing with you

We had talked
How we conversed
You played the music
My thoughts I versed

We had talked
How fast time flies
From morning songs
To my dream lullabies

We had talked
How we each sated
Desires we hungered
The more we created

We had talked
How hearts became
Sharing togetherness
In dreaming the same


Night Of Pathways

by

Hope Smith


Colour the pathways
Dreams are waiting
Thoughts take to sky
Among stars creating

Mind sails the ocean
Charting with love
Dream filling nights
Beneath stars above

Land ships to shore
As palm trees sway
Stars light the sky
Upon a moonlit bay

Awaiting as we land
A cabin by the sea
Indulging pleasure
Desires and fantasy

The glow of firelight
Held in your arms
Night was fulfilled
Of magical charms

Night of pathways
Over sky and sea
Togetherness love
Dreams capture me


Upon Moonlight Reflection

by

Hope Smith


There on a beach blanket
Snuggling side by side
Waves lapping sand
Each flow of the tide

Strumming on your guitar
Songs you play for me
Waves washing ashore
In rhythms of the sea

Dreams flew the distance
Desires reach ashore
Waves of love caress
Passionate to the core

Ocean breezes sweeping
Stars shine from above
Waves increase tempo
Sensuous beats of love

Upon moonlight reflection
Soft lips slightly apart
Waves dance in tune
Swaying heart to heart


Closing My Eyes I Drift

by

Hope Smith


Dull, humdrum and boring
My mind finds a cure
Closing my eyes I drift
Fantasy takes a tour

Like my favourite songs
Each day I can play
Closing my eyes I drift
Together we fly away

Fantasy grabs my hand
Strokes to my hair
Closing my eyes I drift
I know you are there

Smiles embraced faces
Fantasy was shared
Closing my eyes I drift
Into dreams we dared

In remembering always
The promises made
Closing my eyes I drift
Where dreams never fade


To Fly On Melodies

by

Hope Smith


If I could fly on melodies
Heartsongs playing true
Sing love and harmony
With every note for you

If I could fly on melodies
To carry my notes afar
Attune my heart to you
To swing on every star

If I could fly on melodies
A romantic rosy glow
Cradled in your arms
Releasing passions flow

If I could fly on melodies
On stars I would write
Love duets to dance
Entwining you in flight


Share In The Growth

by

Hope Smith


We are like branches
I do hope you agree
Spreading our love
On a friendship tree

Trees tall and grand
Of love made to last
Among the branches
Strong and steadfast

Of strong foundation
Deep into the earth
From planting seeds
Of value and worth

Strengthened bough
To shape and bend
Branching of heartís
Represents a friend

With waving gesture
Sways in the breeze
By providing shelter
Evergreen canopies

All becoming a part
Portray you and me
Share in the growth
On a friendship tree
