My Guiding Light
Seven years have gone bye
But who counts stars in the sky
Or the passing blue moons
Waving shadows upon blue lagoons
A waterfall’s pool of liquid joy
Shimmering memories, of when I was a boy
I shiver from yesteryear’s leftover rains
And there will always be a deep river in my veins
Dad, you were a brother and best mate too
And your ever-loving spirit guides me through
Ivor Steven (c) July 3rd 2022
I hear winter in the gently falling rain
When skies are weary, cast down in autumn's grey
While Bach's music echoes through the writing brain
A poet shares breakfast coffee with John Suchet
His words flowing among the creative chain
As the pen and ink begin their working day
So it rains while dreams fill the poet's domain
And rhythmic rhyme and music come out to play
Your fingers shaped and moulded in the clay Pulling and pushing it into your way...
Her imaginary playmate was a grown-up In sea-coal satin. The flame-blue glances...

Imaginings of Love
Imagine you and I sat hand in hand
Or walking side by side where're we go
Lingering smiles reveal feelings we know
With no one else to please but love's demand.
It's more than attraction between us two,
The connections made in a higher place
Where whispers of desire trip and trace
And thoughts of love become the nat'ral view.
We're lost to powers found in wild romance
All those imaginings of love now real
Yet words cannot express the way we feel,
As passions melt so quickly in a glance.
Imagine you and I sat hand in hand
Or walking side by side where're we go

A Day in December
Eyes of children shine with anticipation
Excited chatter in their letters to Saint Nick
While parents are laden with that frustration
Of knowing just the perfect present to pick
Each gift disguised in bows and shimmering wrap
The energies of Christmas must be on tap
As the last parcel is placed beneath the tree
And then there is time for that last cup of tea

The dreams of Peter Pan fade away in time
A broken shadow no needle can repair
There's no detective to solve this silent crime
Forever's soul is lost and the heart lays bare
When love dies again within a senseless rhyme
As broken hearts no longer pretend to care
And in the distance wedding bells call their chime
While Peter Pan flies alone in the night air
