Weaving spider,
a dreamcatcher’s web- –
dressing it a bit
more difficult.
Designing love
by hand
means listening
to its needs.
Breathing into it
pieces of heart- –
bits of soul, I risk
losing a child- –
an impending
letting go.
I’m never ready
to give them up- –
these seedling
extensions of self.
I do
the poem.

You are
my dreamcatcher.

I’ll let you
swim the river
of my soul- –
sunbathe in
the calm of me
just to be
your secret
hideaway- –

I’ll hike
your heart
the meadow,
swollen- –
ripe with color,
honey drenched
and ready
for my dreaming

I’ll meet you later
at the headwater
for hugs
and wild berry

I’m Thinking

I awake to find you
– -warm flame still
burning around me.
Fingers- -blue-white
light stroking softly
my belly.

Don’t let the distance
in my eyes slow your pulse- –
the beat, something
I can dance to.

I’m thinking
about two velvet petals
raining soft drops
in circular patterns
splashing love
around us- -here.

I’m Falling

I’m falling
deep within
the well of you- –
no darkness
down inside- –
your eyes my guide.
To sit with you- –
for some light- –
for a hopeless night.
I’m falling
      – -falling deep
within your eyes
My sighing- –
love songs whispered
– -echoes within echoes,
souls touching- –
                   – -touching,
a stirring
of shadows- -in vivid
shades of love.
I’m falling deep
in love with you
within the well of you,
just there
behind your eyes,
just there
in the coming
of your light.

January’s passing
promises more cold- –
fold the dreams away
a summer wardrobe
                                  set aside
winter lingers- -and you
in continual soft sway- –
motions of love in action.

Here I stay
your private oasis
dressed in winter cloak,
my smokey love
forever whispering
proclamations of desire
by your caress
teasing my heart.

I am so much more
than an island
in the essence of you- –
continual lover
that you are- -even
I have a sea inside
frozen in January’s passing.

January’s Passing, Copyright 2011, by Suzie Ashby.

Enigmas- -the moon and you
lying here next to me
in one another- -new ground
covered in an hour
feels like making love- -just
passing the time- -away
from those red satin sheets
trailed serpentine
across the floor- –
door standing open,
spell binding- -binding us
never minding the world
as a whole
only the time we spend
absorbing the stars

On My List

Your Eyes.


Sunshine on my
grocery list,
a wish for change- -ultimately
must come from within

I begin the steps
erasing my list
and set about
starting again

Your ink blot eyes
wink up at me- –
feathered blotches
resembling love

An easy answer, love
warming- -exciting, inviting
your eyes always
make the sun shine

I should remember that
for emergencies.
