The Villa of Promise


sensing the new dawn
i rise early
like the wandering sun
in the spaces between
deprivation and existence
feeling your presence
i find myself
in the great villa of promise
on the frontier of reason
sipping a nice
cup of you
with hungry lips
as love blossoms in earnest
putting a smile on my face
i bask in the naked beauty of your sweetness
dreaming
of the living poetry
of the morning light
clothed in love
i open up
like the autumn rose in triumph
learning to fly
i blend and embrace
the new dawn
as the earth moves
nourishing my soul
in the divine
flame
of your essence

Autumn Bliss


the golden leaf drops
like honey
maximising my autumn bliss

you come to me in waves
of desire
rocking my gentle world forever

you are the autumn cheek of my dreams
the magic fragrance
of the soul holding up the universe

the suns of autumn flirt with time
under the golden light
blooms flourish in my secret garden

the hungry birds at play over the
crescent moon
heightening my longing

cool autumn day. i walk like a soul
possessed
raking the fallen leaves with gusto

The City of Dreams


born in the city of dreams at the end
of the rainbow
i build the future from the ashes of time

i encounter the forces of reason
the wonderful
glow of light that made me

knowledge comes to the rescue
shaping the mind
and moulding my dreams with golden hands

i embrace the fecund universe with passion
finding the missing
pieces in the puzzle of existence

my soul opens up
like a rose
blooms flourish in Oz

behold a perfect stranger in my orbit
a secret song
that unlocks the mysteries of the universe

you guide me to the secret garden
of wonder
nourishing my soul as new life blossoms

Homeless


homeless in Findon
the sound
of autumn wind

no room at the Inn for the refugee
plugged from
the secret river of tears - this dreadful night

a wandering soul in the
city of light
the danger of stateless life foretold

shaken and broken, you sleep
under the stars
like this shadow hunter in the back of beyond

you transform the dream
in silence
feeding the homeless birds

you shelter under the wings of compassion
cuddling the moon
in this cold and stormy night

you read the divine poetry of passion
with restless lips
exploring the strange beauty of the naked night

behold the homeless man in a crumpled suit
taming his demons
how things have changed in the land of endless summer?

Feeling Your Heartbeat


i fly to the innermost heart of the beloved
at the speed of light on the luminous wings of silence
carrying the message of hope
and a pocket full of lucid dreams

i drink a wonderful
cup of you
over the crescent moon
feeling your heartbeat

the wondrous flower of life opens
lifting the gloom just in time
as i get into
the fertile mind of wonder

i explore the mound of Venus with lustful eyes
tasting your nectar; living the dream
with love and passion
as the apple falls in the nick time

you put your sweet melody
on my flaming lips
capturing the moment as i sink into your veins
building the protective orbit of desire around you

now we morph into oneness (you & i)
melting like the snow
reading the divine poetry of joy
in the secret places of the heart

Migrant Dreaming


i glide into the sunburnt country
like a delicate little snowflake
on a mission to discover the luminous landscape
of life in the pivotal moment of creation

with the flame of destiny in my soul
i find stability in the midst of chaos as love whispers in my ear
i dance like the gentle wind
in the golden light of dawn; holding up the sky

and like the Martian in fancy clothing
made of light that never fades
i take the citadel of dreaming by storm
yearning for your gentle touch under the rose petals

the fragrance of your passion
overwhelms me in the moist hour as i explore
the pulsing heart of Oz; searching for you
in the deepest waters of my longing

like the restless love particle under the antipodean sun
i come through the window without walls bathed in your glory
finding the inner beauty of your essence
the living drop of nectar divine

Blissful Smile


the buds of desire in bloom
i lost myself
in your blissful smile of wonder

rising above the darkening cloud
i search for
for you with a thousand eyes

your sun touches my heart in the
defining moment
energizing my soul as the earth moves

behold the fragrance of hope along the
winding path of time
feeding my longing before dawn

Stuck in the labyrinth of life. Your smile
comes to the rescue
beautifying my soul in the spaces between dreams
