Perfect Smile


poetry vibrates
in my veins
like little cells of colour
as i walk into the deep
inner silence of her being
learning to love
in the raging fire of adversity

i catch
the divine twinkle
in her
eyes of blue
as i inhale her fragrance of wonder
at the
pinnacle of pleasure

i dream
of pathways of light in the lands unknown
of fun and beauty under the rose petals
of perfect harmony with the beloved
in the great curves of time
as her infectious smile
nourishes my soul
behind the spell
in a moment of profound clarity

i dance
like the gentle wind
in the deep north of my desire
painting joy
and happiness
on the dream canvass
of destiny
finding my place in the sublime
landscape
of life
and poetry

The Cold Wind of Change


the blast of cold wind
in the ‘hood of Dreaming
changes everything
as we morph into oneness
sharing the forbidden love and humour
transcending adversity
with lots of laughter and the power of mateship

love blossoms in the weave of time
like lines of tender verse in full flight
like a soul in blissful solitude
finding solace
and the mystery
of life
in my orbit

i feel
the tender hand of reason
as I walk
in the shower of light
rebuilding shattered lives
with generosity of spirit
this autumn day of delicate beings

i rake
the fallen leaves
with gusto
absolutely desperate
to save the magic blossom
from the wrath of complex emotions
under the darkening sky

The Art of Survival


you are the chosen seed of destiny
a dream in the process of becoming
battling the ingrained emotions
of love, fear, wonder and guilt
in the prefrontal cortex of the soul
shifting between the heart and mind

you hover around
my moral universe
in the first light of dawn
tempting me
with the glorious
fragrance of desire

love molecules run
through my veins
like the drones of choice
at the cutting-edge of cool
revealing
the precious art of survival

i can feel your heartbeat
your insatiable longing…
your inner state of mind
your excitement in the fleeting
moment of time
that defines my consciousness

The Flight of the Autumn Leaf


the autumn leaf in her element;
gliding like an ageless beauty on heat
dreaming of perfection
in the golden light of dawn

you take the world
by storm
spruiking desire

the heart flutters
in the moist hour
sharing the blissful
message
of love and hope

musing over
the yellow moon, the sound
of endless joy

i quiver in the living
splendour of your essence,
a taste of the powerful fragrance
that transforms my life

i dream
a colourful dream of wonder
orange blossoms

how wonderful is the maiden flight
of the autumn leaf!
the glorious cycle of life
in all its manifestations

The Heart of the Beloved


you are
the centre of my being
the wellspring of desire
in which i dwell

like the monk in solitude
i feed the mystery bird in blissful silence
devouring the moon
in the moment of rapture

i ride the waves of emotion
like the son of heaven in the threshold of awareness
like the soul in the delirium of ecstasy
drunk with love and passion sublime

i delve into the heart of the beloved
like the neuron on a mission
searching for the divine drop of honey foretold
re-imagining the universe of pure light

The Dreaming Sea


on my journey from inspiration
to transformation
i throw caution to the wind
embracing the naked truth

i walk alone
like an orphan deprived
waging peace

i ride the cosmic waves
of passion in Findonsphere where
love particles dance
to the rhythm of the heart

the molecules of desire
runs through
my veins in the moist hour

i capture the powerful force
for good; absorbing the light divine
drowning my sorrows
in the dreaming sea of bliss

new dawn
in Terra Australis
rays of hope

Sweet Memory


i rekindle the flame;
feeling the sweet memory
of first love
over the rainbow

i bathe in the beauty
of the beloved as the heart sings…
savouring her nectar
in the sublime moment of poetry

innocent thoughts drop like honey
like the stars in your eyes
like the divine sensation of oneness
brightening up my days forever

i crack the secret code
of desire in the nick of time
finding solace; solving the wicket
mystery of mind and body
