Autumn Chic


autumn in deep slumber
under the darkening sky
yet, your tenderness
whispers to
my hungry soul;
stirring desire
in my heart
showering me with the living
light of love sublime

i bathe
in your inner beauty
as cherry blossoms in earnest
a flurry
of love particles dance upon the sweetness
liberating
my consciousness
keeping my
dreams alive

Loving Touch of the Soul


i walk along
the luminous path of wonder
searching for the definitive
vision of reality
in the empire of reason
surrounded by an intimate assembly
of thinking moons;
reflecting on the sacred
spaces of dreaming
touching my heart with passion

my eyes kiss the light
as i listen in silence
feeling the power of your love
rousing the wandering
hormones of your existence
in the process
i embrace the new dawn
of dreaming like a soul possessed
like this naked duck gliding across
the surface of the pond scratching for a living

gone are
the wasted years of vanity
the naïve
world of boyhood
painted with
delightful colours of wonder
when
the universe
was young

i search for clarity
in the garden of poems
under the
magic fragrance of jasmine
yet, this tempting
moon continues to dance
on my pillow; spreading new photons of life
singing
the fecund songs
of love divine

you light
my fire with
your loving touch; stealing my heart…
i experience
rapture
in the temple of the soul
sowing the sacred seed of destiny
this glorious
night
of nights

Songs of Love


poetic stirrings
in Findon
songs of love

footprints
on the Aussie soil
the rainbow speaks of hope

the desert rose
hovers in my orbit
feeding my hungry soul…
her divine
hotness flows
through my veins
rising
like a mountain of energy
like this divine nectar on my lips
giving birth to boundless desire

inspired by the deepest
passions within my humble heart
i scale
the heights
of dreaming; longing for you
designing
an intricate tapestry of the future
garnished with the warmth of love particles
fusing
the past and present

now, I live
in blissful
contentment
holding
up the sky
tending
the hormonal flame
in full blossom
nurturing
the sweet buds of love with glee

you turn on the light
yearning
for rapture
as oestrogen captures
the moment
with a brave and roving thought
gradually
revealing your true essence
before
my naked eyes

The End of Sorrow


riding the tiger
i curry favour with the cosmos
the end of sorrow

a long match
to the depth of the Truth
autumn leaf

i bow to the Great Leader
of the universe
the author of my being

sing to me, cricket,
the beautiful
songs of joy foretold

field of dreams
i trek the rough edges of reason
the sound of broken life

i capture the elusive muse of destiny
the inner light
that animates my consciousness

i listen to the new voices
in the passionate vortex of desire
evening cool

fishing for the light
in deafening silence
i savour the sublime sweetness of your Dream

your essence glows in my mind’s eye
like this candle
in the temple of wonder

i probe the mysteries
of Terra Australis with the eye of an eagle
under the flowering sky

i fly like the gleam of light
into the heart of oneness
energising my soul

Days of Solitude


after a thousand days of solitude,
i glide into the heart of the beloved
like the love bird of the realm
like this desert rose on a mission
breaking the back of adversity;
dining with the angels in the temple of capitalism

the golden moon
dances on my pillow
oozing love and desire
i taste the sublime freshness
of the baby universe
in the crack of dawn

i dwell in the crystal waters of your essence
savouring
the magic
fragrance of happiness
tinged with a wonderful
display of tenderness

the divine providence
shines upon me, this glorious moment;
blessing my soul and
liberating my consciousness
opening the quantum wave
of opportunity beneath
the skin of reality

i see the light of oneness in my orbit
as i feed the hungry soul
this day of days
i stand on the sumptuous wings of desire;
seducing the Divine
melting the cold heart of reason

you endow me with
the wonderful gifts of joy and inner peace
transcending the negative thoughts forever
i crack the secret code of survival
listening to the mesmerising sound of flowers
In this dream of dreams

Lonely Night


in the dark
and lonely night
i find the light
turning grief
into great relief

love birds
in the hot pockets of desire
whispers of the soul

how wonderful
is the love-light of the heart
forged in the tough furnace of perfection
at the dawn of time

i become the true son of the universe
sharing the moment;
kissing you with sparks;
stemming the tide of entropy forever

animated by the lifelong
dream of flying
i take the citadel of learning by storm

flushed with beauty
i dance with love particles on
the mound of Venus

out of the shadows
i worship on
the alter of your sweetness

you sing my name under
the rose petals
and the word becomes flesh

i touch the hand of the Divine
the creative spirit
who seduced me
in the primordial garden
blooming with desire

love flows through my veins
in the darkest hour
nourishing my soul

i drop the amour of destiny
opening the window of opportunity
in this voyage of wonder

The Thorn Bush


surviving the night
in the thorn bush of destiny
i distil your essence
in disciplined silence
enjoying the light breeze of emotion

two souls unite in the moist hour;
sowing the seeds of passion sublime
feeding the love molecules
with enduring pleasure (ecstasy of the gentle mind);
bringing great relief to my years of longing

love blossoms in earnest
as the butterfly flaps its wings
i tweet the wondrous
glory of the sunburnt country
staring into infinity

the thorn bush
drips with honey; filling my lonely heart
with endless joy and desire
yet, i sit like the rainbow warrior on heat
asking for more; dreaming of the new dawn of wonder

now, i bathe in your sublime beauty
as we morph into oneness
capturing the tender moment
and drinking a wonderful
cup of you with lips of fire

you are the light of lights
the force of nature
the majestic symbol of the living soul...
a Silver Star quivering
in my orbit
