i  was standing still

in a time dulled by shades of  gray

and shadows of  loneliness

until came the day  you looked into me

love pouring  forth  from  your eyes

warming  me with its  glow

suddenly,  i  perceived the world

bright and color-filled

blues ~ reds ~ greens ~ yellows

no longer muted

incandescent and  joyful

you transformed my life

into a dream become our reality

i  have naught to  give  you in return

but  all  of  me

if  we are weary
we can sometimes see
the glow of  an angel’s wings
wrapped  ’round us
when we are all alone

if  we are heartbroken
we can sometimes taste
the angels’  tears
mixed with our own

in a summer rain

if  we act with kindness
we can sometimes feel
an angel’s kiss
warm and sweet

upon our cheek

and if  we are very still
we can sometimes hear
the music of  the angels
playing softly

in our hearts

∘♥∘ ❤ ∘♥∘ soft kisses ∘♥∘ ❤ ∘♥∘

∘  ∘

♥  ♥

his kisses so soft

they should barely be felt

…..and yet…..

they set her on fire

he kissed her tenderly

wanting only that she know

how very much he loved her

it was as if  her body

could not help but respond

and,  as their passion deepened,

they lost themselves

in the soft kisses and one another

⋆ ❍ ⋆ Moon Watches ⋆ ❍ ⋆ by Ainsley Allmark @DolphinDancer

 

* ❍ *

❍ 

She watches
Sees the Earth turn
Beneath her

Sees me dreaming
About you
Holding you close
In my thoughts

Sees you thinking
About me
Swaying gently
In our dance

Five thousand miles
Is but a thought
As our lips touch
And our kisses flow

Moon always watching
Sees us turn in our dance
Smiles in our Love

“Same Side of  The Moon”   Corrinne May

my dear  friend,  Ainsley Allmark,  { @DolphinDancer }  was kind enough to write this poem in response to my poem  “the moon has left me”  (below) ~ his poem  “Moon Watches”  can be  found at his main blog,  Dolphin Muse.  please scroll down to the blogrolls at the bottom of  this page to  find links to his other ‘Dolphin’  blogs.  i’d like to thank Ainsley  for his beautiful  love song in response to mine,  and  for allowing me to share it with you here along with his stunning photograph of  the  “Fool Moon.”

the moon has left me

dani  @  my heart’s love songs

*❍*

the moon has left me

to pay you a visit

( now i miss both you and her )

the trees have stayed though

quiet company for me

( they don’t like to talk )

the stars are hiding

too shy to let me see them

( but i can feel their presence )

tonight the moon will return

as though nothing ever happened

( then leave again to see you )

so we must share her

from opposite sides of  the earth

( yet,  always,  we see the same side of  the moon )
