Searching the flame- Romantic Monday post

26 Nov

Again, I have to kindly thank Hotspur and Romantic Monday for bringing me out of my  writing slumber. I have not been well… Well, actually I was not well and then I didn’t give my body the rest it yearned and that seemed to result in my body unleashing a super-attack of snot, fever, ache and general comatosis of my brain (sorry, not a very romantic image). Now I’m in some kind of exhausted hibernation, I guess I asked for it really.

But I’m alive. And not taking part in Romantic Monday would be like sitting with a can of cold beans and watching others feast on gorgeous Christmas Dinner. So I have indeed created something for you. I hope you enjoy!

To see other beautiful scenes of romance visit here.


Searching the flame


I watch love travelling

The roundabouts of scattered hearts

Or taking a road trip to see the sun

Stretching its pale arms wide

And caressing the coming times

Even the moon and all the tides

Calming even the uncontrollable


I watch love dancing in the grass

Disguised in hazy blue, in coldest colours

But still dizzying and spinning awake

Like the fresh breath of breeze

Reaching out to dust the stars

And all the numbed hearts of the forgotten


I lie down in that bending sea of change

Surround myself in feeling

And in peaceful wonder I witness

The migrant birds behind my eyes leaving

Finally taking flight, shrinking the distance

Between me and the skies

Singing out my dreams till they turn into

Fresh-water springs, into travellers of cosmic winds

Into brave riders of the stardust


Till they find you and are sprinkled down

To cover your skin

In the most flaming glitter, in the bright halo

That blinds us to fumble a touch

That binds us to silently watch

Our souls crackling in the air and

Love,  love igniting us

    You have such a beautiful spirit. It inspires me in many ways. Thank you. I think we have a poem somewhere in cyberspace…lol.

      Thank you, I can only say the same about you! This poem, especially the beginning was really inspired by the feeling I found in your Saving Myself. And we do, I’ve not forgotten. 🙂 My head just hasn’t been the most corporating, stupid flu. But I’ve got some time off work now to rest, so will get creative and send it back!

        I haven’t had the flu in ages….but now I will probably get it lol. Rest, get well…you know where to find me! I am happy to know we inspire each other.

    You’re incurable! 😀
    Hope you get well soon!

    • daydreamdaisies November 29, 2012 at 11:07 pm #

      Thanks! And I’m an incurable romantic, that’s for sure. But aren’t we all, at least a tiny bit?

        Indeed we are!

        The the downside is that one can’t live whole life inside a fantasy fairytale, sooner or later reality strikes and we have to wake up! Though I would happily live in a fairy tale if I could 😉
