thoughts from my mind to yours

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

129 Comments

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 πŸ™‚ 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 β€˜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

 

Β 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!

  1. Reblogged this on Sea of Desire and commented:
    Please think about adding to the collaboration!!

  2. 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.

  3. What do we do exactly? Write a love letter to someone we never told our true feelings to?

    • Yes, what do we do?

    • umm if that’s what you get from the piece sure you can add that… doesn’t have to be writing a letter it can thoughts you feel to any loved one, can be a love letter or letter to a family member…however you wish to continue it πŸ™‚ …I will add it in the order they come in the comments : Here is the last one that was done so you can see how it works :)https://forgottenmeadows.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/calling-all-poetscreative-minds-by-the-window/

  4. Oooh, yippeeee! I think I have an old, old haiku that would fit perfectly into this–I’ll go find it and be back later.

  5. Opalescent beams pierce the inky dark.
    Open arms of that embrace my dreams,

  8. Sounds pretty fun! Here’s my little short :

    If only I could use the silken beams

    moonlight feeding its growth
    as shadows take over
    (I cannot see.)

  9. Hi Neha. Will you please amend line 2 to read “Open arms of that embrace my dreams,”
    Thank you.

  10. Aaargh, I meant ” Open arms that embrace my dreams,”
    Just please take out the word “of”, LOL πŸ™‚

  11. thank you for this lovely prompt! πŸ™‚
    …so here’s my small contribution, haiku-ish

    THE DREAMER’S ALPHABET
    ….

    W is for
    words made of moonbeams and stars
    when Night hums along

  18. This is such a great idea Neha! Especially because we get to read all the different entries. Its like seven (or however many) poems in one πŸ™‚

  19. 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

    This is an awesome idea!!!
    Blessitude

  20. Wonderful project Neha. I enjoy watching them unfold.

    moonbeams pierce my heart
    infinite wonder in the night sky
    my being fills with heavenly light
    quieting the mind this starry night

  21. This is fun! Thank you! Here’s my little piece, hope you like…..!

    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

  22. This is such a great project that you’re doing. Here’s my attempt:

    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.

  23. 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.

  24. Just last week I was thinking about collaborative story telling and serendipitously I came across your post! Great idea. I didn’t contribute last time but I’ll give it a go this time πŸ™‚

    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.

  27. Hi: did not realize you want it in the comments, is that right ? I made a post like Zip did, but here is my continuation ‘in jest with zest’:
    . . . . .

    But I have written them you see,
    to you my love and others too.
    You guys forgot to send replies

    Let me know when you have other prompts … many thanks, Vera

    • That’s ok it is just as you did not add it in the comments I was not sure if you wanted to add to this or if it was a stand alone…I have now added your beautiful contribution πŸ™‚ And Yes stay tuned for future prompts once this is done πŸ™‚

      • Thank you! I generally do not do a ‘stand-alone’ when others are involved. I have too much respect for the work of others do ignore them! and again I thank you. πŸ˜‰

      • Oh, yes! I just clicked on the names at the bottom, but they are not links to the blogs of those that participate. Did you intend it that way? it would be nice to visit the blogs of the writers – maybe that has to be done by each comment though ?? I may have asked a stupid question, but nothing ventured, nothing gained…
        In any case my post is here: http://wp.me/p2jlos-2mj

      • hi no they don’t all have a piece on their blog, I have just linked it to their main blog page πŸ™‚

  28. My heart has only one wish.

    on delicate sheets of hope,

    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’

    (I added a last line to your verse. Also, There is a rumour going around about some prize money. Could you tell us how much πŸ˜‰ haha )

    Lots of love Neha

    • Beautiful, thanks Ihsan! πŸ™‚ And I like that line added to my verse, it has been added, think the repetition of the verse goes with the poem along with the line…And as for prize money ~ it is a million thank yous from the heart, for this collaborative work of art, made possible by all of you πŸ™‚

      • Hahah. That’s a pretty good prize although I was hoping for money πŸ˜‰ Also do you except bribes? Hahah. This is me procrastinating. Back to my work!!

  43. Wow, what a wonderful, successful collaborative project! πŸ™‚ Beautiful poems!

  44. Reblogged this on A Writer at Heart and commented:
    This was a really cool writing collaboration!! Check out the end results, it is quite beautiful πŸ™‚ Writing is often thought of as a singular activity, by itself (while the other aspects involved, such as proofreading and editing, are less so.) Yet this blog article shows that collaboration can result in some amazing work!

  45. This is a great concept. Maybe I’ll be able to join in on a later one (presuming you do them again). πŸ™‚

  46. This is just beautiful. Poetry in motion πŸ™‚

    My letter for you;

    Eye of darkness might
    The soul beaming moon
    Decline stars fading light
    As dawn comes too soon
    So stay with me this night
    Engaging and commune
    Sooth my inner plight
    Timeless to attune
