Calling all Poets/Creative Minds – Writing letters by the moonlight

As the last collaboration was such a success, I wanted to start another. This time I will give everyone a week as I realize some of you only blog once a week. As usual I will add all contributions in different colour and list the contributor in the same colour at the end of the piece. I will add it in the order they come. Hope you all will join in on this one 🙂 Thank you!

Unwritten letters of the heart,

which you always meant to start,

sitting by the moonlight…

 

A thousand words spun from my soul.

I cannot see through blinding stars

These tears by summers moonlight shed

The pen of my mind idle

As words unwritten fall to the floor

Of a broken heart

By loves denial

 

 

Opalescent beams pierce the inky dark.

Open arms that embrace my dreams,

and carry them into the ethereal blanket of stars

to be dispersed across the heavens seeking a home

in the sweet dreams I wish for you each night.

Dream of only me, by the moonlight.

 

If only I could use the silken beams

weaving a story – set in transient dreams

moonlight feeding its growth

as shadows take over

(I cannot see.)

 

W is for

words made of moonbeams and stars

when Night hums along

 

I send you letters

like kites: blind with hope, flying

up or down, love-full.

 

Memories of passion we shared

Our souls tentatively bared

My paper cannot contain the tears

Shooting stars carry the pain

As the moon begins to wane

My love for you never to diminish

 

A sliver of moonlight

Safeguards me as I write

To the man of my dreams

The keeper of moonbeams

 

If I were to write what’s in my heart

It would take me a thousand years

to express my love for you.

I would rather sit next to you

and let you know without fears

face to face looking in your eyes

under the moonlight…

and no goodbyes.

 

I will wait here

for the words I meant to say –

my heart full

of emptiness and love

that could never be spoken.

 

I string my words

With moonbeam threads

Remembering your smiles

That shine like them in my heart

I do not know what tomorrow will bring

But tonight , you are mine

Even if just in my dreams.

 

 

Your light shines through me

Tho’ a crescent

like a smile

it flutters to my heart

and fills me with the gift

of love’s offering

 

 

moonbeams pierce my heart

infinite wonder in the night sky

my being fills with heavenly light

quieting the mind this starry night

 

 

Moonlight fills a vacant sky

I rest my pen, breathe out a sigh,

Love so potent, hard to hold

Can never in a word be told

 

On my window, the moon smiles

it reminisces the moments

that passed us by.

The blank paper

lies there to be inked

with the words from your heart

waiting to touch my soul.

 

There is but one for me you cry

Beneath the dark emboldening sky

But my heart knows that you lie

And yet you never stopped to ask why.

 

The moon, she sees all your tricks

But shines each night as you get your fix

Of words and wine thrown in the mix

 

Moonlight shadows creep and smother

As I sit and ponder life with the other

A state of which I’ll never recover.

 

And though I hear the moonlight whisper

About those days I ache for still,

I raise my head and stand up tall.

And dance in the moonlight until I fall

Onto the grass so wet and cold.

Yet, the ache, again, begins to till!

For even the earth evokes the call.

I can’t escape no matter where I crawl.

 

 

But I have written them you see,

to you my love and others too.

You guys forgot to send replies

so when the moon comes out at night

I sit again to write once more

except this time I’ll self-address.

It’s more reliable that way.

My heart has only one wish.

It is written in stardust,

on delicate sheets of hope,

in runes of the purest love,

for only your soul to read.

As I wait for you to come to me,

I dream of you by the moonlight.

 

Rosemary

Peony, ivy

 

Magic in the

Moonlight

 

I look for words

That would be nice

 

Enough

For I’d like to offer you

 

A garden

Of Truth

 

Unwritten letters of the heart,

which you always meant to start,

sitting by the moonlight

Covered by the stars

 

Soul floats to the sky

Letters disappear

In these moments here

There is no question ‘Why

 

believing that Lady Moon

can bring me what I am dreaming of soon ~

I give with great care

all the I long to share

 

By the moonlight

writing you letters

I look out the window

to see

lovers in a shadow dance

their kiss written in history

too bold to behold

with the naked eye in the day

 

For me,

just a chance

to steal a glance

of something so pure

so uninhibited

was a luxurious moment

to embrace

For they had not yet learned

to be secretive.

Ahhh, to be young again like they.

 

Sharing a piece

With the moon

Writing letters

Of what I feel for you

My friend’s rays

Reflecting off ink soaked paper

Letters shimmering

The moon highlighting

Its approval

Of what it believes to be the best parts

All of it

 

 the moon drapes on

a skirt

leaving its golden bosom

for my eyes

 

 

And as the moonlight veils the sacred darkness

Your seductive whispers gently intoxicates a sweet breeze

Two hearts sink as one; the moons light glistening bright

O beloved; how our love illuminates the moons smile!

Weekly Blog Recommendation – Lifestyle Blog list 1

Hi Everyone,

Happy First Weekend of June! I thought I would bring you some blogs I follow of bloggers who write about life, relationships, gardening, world issues and other things and usually leave a positive and meaningful message in their posts. A lot of them are poets and photographers as well, but because of the versatility in their content I felt I would do this category for these lovely people who uplift the blogging world by sharing theirs 🙂 As always previous lists can be found under the recommendation section. There will be many more lists this month so stay tuned!

 

1.) Ramblings from Jewels  

I have been following Julie for a while now and am always uplifted by her beautiful posts. She also writes beautiful poetry and takes some wonderful photos, especially the ones of her garden. Her posts are always positive and full of meaning that we can use in our life. I encourage everyone to check out her blog.

 

2.) Chronic Conditions and Life Lessons

I started following Kim a couple months ago and am always touched with her heartfelt writing she usually shares on family and relationships. She used to be professional entrepreneur and I was quite inspired by her about me page. As her blog title suggests , there are many life lessons that her posts usually hold and I hope everyone checks out her beautiful blog.

 

3.) Writing to Freedom

Brad is also a poet but like these bloggers here on the list has a very versatile content in his blog. He shares many inspiring stories and messages that make us think and reflect on life. I highly recommend everyone to go check out his blog and enjoy his uplifting posts on life.

 

4.) Underground Energy

I have recently started following Lisa and she is another blogger with many talents. She  is a mother of four beautiful girls and shares her poetry, crafts and posts on life which are thought provoking and meaningful. I hope everyone takes the time to go see her wonderful work.

 

5.) Witlessdatingafterfifty

Robin is another blogger whose posts always leave you thinking, whether it is her poetry, her thoughts on relationships, family or books. Her posts are well thought out, meaningful and engaging. I recommend all my readers to go check out her wonderful blog and the positive vibe she shares on life.

 

***Note to any bloggers featured in these weekly posts, if you wish for me to remove your name from this list due to any reason please let me know, and I will do so. Also all of the excerpts featured (if featured)  are the works of the bloggers listed, they  each own the copyrights to their own piece and it is not my intention to take credit for it in anyway, hope that is clear to all readers. This is just my effort to appreciate good work. If any bloggers feel that their work has not been properly credited or should not be on the list let me know and I shall remove it. Again thank you all for sharing your beautiful work

Hi Everyone,

I thought I would do a collaboration with you all…  Or you can also use it as a prompt if you want  for your own piece. If you wish to add to this piece please leave your part in the comment section. I will keep it open for three days and I will add whatever I get in the order I get them to the poem. If I don’t get anything this will be a stand alone but I hope some of you will give it a try 🙂

Update: I got some contributors yay! I will keep adding the contributions in different colours and list the name of each contributor ( in the same colour as their contribution)at the bottom of the piece.  I am absolutely loving how this is going so far…will update as I get more up to the third day! 🙂 🙂 Thank you…
