It's been a long time...being away from PoetBay, has been like being away from home. I missed you all my dear friends. I wrote six poems in London. Want it share this one with you.

Dreams of Spring

Floating in the ocean of the azure sky,
Flying in the air, with cool zephyr
blowing my auburn mane of hair;
Dewdrops kissing my cheeks
Sending a shudder of desire
down my spine....

In the twilight zone of the morning-
between the delicious state of
Slumber and awakening-
I have a dream...

Clouds floating pass me by,
caressing my skin,
I greet them with a smile-
the companions of my spring.
In you come floating into my thoughts,
Appear before my eyes,
Hold my hands and lead me
into a grove of
Sherwood Forest green...

As can only happen, in a dream...

Gently plant a kiss on my lips
Under the mistletoe...
Emotion surge in my blood,
In my veins, increasing its flow...
Your touch like an electric current,
Sends a thrill that spreads
in warm sanguine flow...

I become aware of the woman in me-
Desire throbs in my soul-
I want to be consumed in love...

And you say: easy does it-
let us not rush!
Making me more desperate...

And I wake up drenched with desire-


You, the companion of my spring,
You, the apparition of my first love!
Naughty of you to visit me
In my dreams after all these years...

The autumn leaves in the garden
Slowly turn red...

Welcome back my friend!

Dreams of spring are haunting us all, especially after reading your beautiful poem!

Glad to see you again!

Zoya Zaidi
Spring is always in the heart,
Though time may spell autumn's start,
Time flows slowly and goes by,
Before you even realize, it has gone by...
And one day the past comes back,
with the flowers sweet, that bloomed
then, when the birds did tweet...
The sweetest songs remain with you
Though your sable curls turn silver dew...

Arti darling, you have indeed touched a chord some where in my heart...

Spring with delicate sprigs of new desire
Awakening in the summer of mayflowers
And gentle zephyrs and showy daffodils
Push away golden autumn just a little bit longer, my love,
My deep well overflows, lightning sparking off me
As my eyes set my world on fire...
Come, let spring rule forever as love rules...
Autumn's leaves will but feed the fires of my passion.

Ahhhhh there you go Zoya! Unedited, hot off the keyboard. Looks like London was an excellent holiday!

You tell a whole story in these words, and use such a beautiful language in doing so ....... the poetry kreeps out of every letter
