Hope Blossoms


hope blossoms with desire
as the universe
comes to me
as a lover
whispering
through my veins
in the hour of bliss
i morphed into the light
feeding the moon with tenderness
and finding my way
into the heart of the beloved
in the mysterious island
of great promise
where
dreams are made
i bathe
in the sublime beauty of your essence
feeling the love
with sheer delight
i swim
like the restless love particle
on heat
savouring the moment
i thrive and flourish
like this beautiful garden of the mind
where hope
merges with passion
sharpening my vision

The Divine Gift


lost in the back of beyond
under the darkening sky
i fly on
the wings of reason
morphing into the light
i dine on hope
and excitement
garnished with passion
i taste the divine
drop of your goodness
the drop of goodness
that inspires me
with songs of wonder
you bless my days with the supreme diet
of optimism
the divine gift
of life in all its complexity

Scent of the Supermoon


behold the Supermoon
in all
her glory
oozing with desire
holding
up the sky
with the
alchemy of wonder
as true love
blossoms
in my orbit
weaving dreams
with
cosmic delight

Days of Longing


it’s a rough and tumble
time
on the
long road
to utopia
yet, i seize the day with gusto
as my luck shines
like the sparkling sapphire of the realm
like the star
in a cloudless night’s sky
feeding my longing
i sense your presence
pure
and true
as my heart beats
on a diet of invisible text
messages across
the endless universe of cells
you anoint
my body
with the sweet fragrance
of ambition
garnished with
the sublime fragments
of light
in a complex
new world
of desire
that colours my dreams
ushering in
the springtime of my life

Touched by the Light


touched by the light in the nick of time
i unlock the
mystery of the universe in all its glory

behold the coloured flashes of life beyond
the stressful realm
as i bathe in the divine waves of light

i write the first stanza of the Dreamtime
tales of love so divine
in a soulful night swollen with dreams

i drink a nice cup of you with flaming lips
tasting your
beauty with stars dancing in my eyes

the sweet scent of your goodness
overwhelms me
in the pantheon of the beloved

i dance under the secret sun of time that shines on me
moving like an angel
in the endless discotheque of life foretold

how wonderful it is to share the sublime
passion for
fun even in the field of broken dreams

A Taste of the Divine Nectar


you are the divine nectar of fire running
through my veins
generating light in the dark places of the soul

you re-create a sense of joy and wellbeing
in my orbit
transforming my life in so many ways

i soar like an eagle on heat
like the rainbow
lorikeet over the naked mountains blue

i wrestle with the new dawn under
the gum tree
exploring the consciousness of the beloved

i find the true north of my being
my true destiny
in the spaces between dreams

i plant my seeds in sweet silence
tasting your
essence as the heart sings

The Scented Night


in the silence
of the scented night
of fun
i eat the moon
savouring her goodness
before dawn
i pacify
the restless neutrinos
(the tiny sub-atomic particles)
in my orbit
as i feast
on the inner secrets
of the
universe
armed with a dream
i weave
the narrative
thread
of reason and happiness
in the
fecund garden of life
this
sweetest moment
