Just Friends
Every day that passes
between us, it gets harder
to keep the words from
slipping in doubt,
I want to repeat them
time and time again
until my lips wear out,
   But, I can not;
   for we are only
      just friends.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 15 1
Sweet Tears
Blue falling jewels
shining like crystal droplets —
   Sadness evaporates
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 16 3
Falling Rain
Some nights, I’m like the
   falling rain,
Whenever grey thoughts
   cloud my mind
and my heart wells over,
I unburden in the tears I cry.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 46 16
Full of Wonder
Butterfly, chase the wind
let the name of your lover caress your lips
may the storm follow you
   Upon hands, wild and free,
   dance and dive into his waiting embrace;
      You are winds of change
You are sparrows
thriving on the fall and rise
eyes ever forward
   Where once were two
   now a puzzle joins complete;
      A journey awaiting
A path divided
a feather falling to the ground
a child's eyes, full of wonder.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 10 5
Ethereal Glory
Swimming in ethereal glory
magic breathes starlight to earth —
  Eyes spy the velvet night
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 11 17
High Seas
Breaking and falling,
folding and foaming, the ocean
   breathes its own language
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 41 8
Homeward Bound
Lingering inside,
there's a sensation growing strong;
   I'm homeward bound,
Like rivers flowing to the sea,
I know where it is I need to be.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 14 4
The Distance
The day we
felt the distance,
the shells fell
from our eyes,
We knew
the road had
and with sad
severed our last
remaining ties.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 48 10
At First Sight
Frozen by your spell
I gaze from a distance,
   my heart beating fierce —
enchanted, you leave me with
   a painted image behind.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 11 9
Guiding Light
Follow the glimmer
sparkling in your eyes, it will
   guide your heart places
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 23 9
Light of the Heart
Like a beacon,
a compass that ever leads true
my Soul knows the way
[Your heart is my home]
     A pointing needle,
     gravity pulls to true north —
        Take your first step
     [Feel my homefire, calling you]

Evening warmth
seeping through the cracks
hearts calling
[A house lit from within]
     Tucked in our embrace
     we watch the setting sun —
       Home is ever us
     [Heart to heart, we need nothing else]

Share your space
your warmth, your light
watch it grow
[Reflected in the eyes of children]
     Seedlings to the sun,
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 10 3
True Harmony
Allowing them
   to linger
I’ve let the voices
of others tear me down;
   Scarring my mind,
   poisoning my soul,
Until, steadfast, I cried,
   "No more,”
Ghosts of the past,
they can no longer
   harm me
   as I now rejoice in
   true harmony;
From this day on
I will celebrate life
as I walk it completely
       my own.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 8 8
Twilight Departure
A bright moon, cut in half,
shone in last minute's pale
   blue splendour —
Feathered friends sing a twilight tune;
   Another day's departure.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 24 18
Pigment Fields
Flower heads bobbing
within the heartbeat of wind —
   Colours become one
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 25 12
Two Part Puzzle
If you'll let me
I will love you
with all that I am,
Don't try to change me;
   If we belong,
we'll fit like pieces
of a two-part puzzle,
to heartbeat, meeting
      in the middle.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 10 6
Emerald Rain
   Siren song drifts up
to meet the clouds, raining down
   in jewels touching canopies
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 12 4

She was blind, but could see
everything. Nothing held back
the girl with moonbeams for eyes,
feeling the gardens she walked,
through dozing dewdrop buds,
and stepping from tangerine
puddle to tangerine puddle,
rippling away rain clouds from
the sky at her feet, as she shook
constellations from her hair,
while birds sang from her throat.
:iconjade-pandora:Jade-Pandora 67 39
Stained glass glistens on the sunbeams.
Panes of light bursts through the
shadows and make the earth steam.
Lilies detonate from the ground overnight
as if necromancers had put a spell
to banish all of winter, giving them
their rightful passage.
The sun cloaks the ground in a
golden hue, and the sugar-frosted
winter fades from all it has touched.
Birdsong filters in; The dawn chorus
erupts at daybreak singing a melody
as old as time.
Cypress trees slumber in thick groves
of peaceful beeches shading one another;
swaying silently and carelessly as an
ash cloud, before settling into eternal rest.
Hushed whispers of those who
venture through the fog cascades
into the open spaces, ghosts in
and out of windows before finding
their homes onto the smiling lips
of the sleepy dreamers within.
The night washes over the
lush hills and the moon
drenches everything in its silver blanket.
As the morning comes, the sun
injects life into our veins,
an oasis in a shrinking world.

Simple Things
To hear the crickets chirping outside and feel the light, cool draft breeze through my open, moonlit window soothes my whole being and puts to rest what manmade things cannot put to rest.

We are but shadows
falling on the canvas of time
for only the shortest while.
:iconanalillithbar:analillithbar 11 13
a cluster of leaves
your dad built a tree house
and you would go up there
to sketch and read.
when you brought friends over,
you would place a picnic mat
under the shades.
you were a teen
and i peered through my drapes
and saw you carving hearts on the barks.
pretty soon love began to take roots  
so you and the boy were kissing
and the night trees had never been so still.
time and foliage:
today, there is a swing
and your toddler tries it for the first time.
how i want them.
how i want your trees.

Hello, and welcome (:

Lady-Yume is the personal account of artist and writer Kiyo-Poetry. She is the creator of her own publications that combine imagery and words, like her illustrated art & poetry book, Dreamscape.

Mostly written in free-form, they are pieces inspired by nature, philosophy, day-to-day thoughts and emotions.

On this account you’ll find more of her words; personal favourites from her Visual Poetry series, responses to prompts and contests, and it is also her base as current Founder of the Glory-Be-Project.
