Why Gentle Thoughts...


I always found it difficult at times, to express myself to another... especially if I was attracted to that person. I found writing out my thoughts helped.
This poem below, was written in a bar on a napkin. I used to frequent that bar regularly. One night I was writing down a thought, and one of the waitresses saw it and asked me to write something for her. I asked her to give me a "word" to build the poem around. The word she gave was "word."
It got to be if I wrote something they liked they posted it behind a bar. I got a free beer... a glass of wine if they really liked it.
I hope you enjoy...

Give Me A Word

Give me a "word"
and I'll try and give you a dream.
The lines are easy to write
if they're for you.

I'll take you running down warm beaches
or up to a mountain top,
Known only by sweet flowers
and fresh, easy breezes.
I'll carry you into soft beds
with moonlight shining on our love;
even to fire escapes
quietly shared with warm smiles.

Just tell me what you dream...
and I'll give it to you in words,
if not in reality.

I'm going to try an revive that exercise of taking words and making something out of them. But to do that, I need some help. So, come in and give me a "word" and I will try and give you something back. (I may not be here a lot... but I'll try and keep up, if I can.)

Thank you for the compliment you gave on my first entry in my blog. I have come to enjoy expressing my feelings/thoughts/adventures through this. It is freeing and exhilarating to do this because it is somewhat anonymous. I enjoy your writings also and will continue to monitor your posts because most have brought a smile to my lips. Take care and enjoy your weekend.

By the way my word today is: sensual fragrance
Ok it's two words...but hey it is where I am today.

We Found Each Other

Where were we
when we found
each other
for the first time?
Could it have been
the day we talked
about going
on a picnic?

No matter---
we're together.

It was like a soft, slow song
with quiet flutes
and flowing violins
slowly moving over
the smoothness of guitars,
and dreams
gently brushed.

Smiles
were the topic of the day
and dreams were made
and came true
at the same time.
The sensual fragrance
of the summer flowers
we laid down in...
Fingers
softly stroking other fingers.
Every touch feeling
more exquisite
than ever imagined.

No need to rush,
just a need to hold close
and feel every feeling
as it comes to us.

We have found a place
together
where we can sit and relax
knowing tomorrow will come
bringing new warmth,
new freshness
to our love.

I love you...
and as we go on together,
I'll try and show you
just how much.
