Longing


behold the living flame of promise
the sound
of love molecules touching

tears drop like honey
like the magic
fragrance of the orange moon

the son also rises
like the cool bud of time
swollen with longing
finding
solace
in the gaiety
of birds
and the flow of endless
pleasure within

i gaze upon the ripening lips of love sublime
the blooming
iris of my deepest desire

i devour the flowering genius of the soul…
how wonderful is
the taste of life on the mound of Venus?

First Light


the scent
of a delicate
beauty sublime
your smile
flowers
in my orbit
in the first
light
of dawn
energizing my soul

Living the Dream


on the trail of the divine
in the turbulent mountain
over the rainbow
i put down
some roots
where
a thousand flowers bloom
living the dream
feeling the gentle hand of promise
(as joy flows
through my being)
hope rises
like the morning sun
like this child of destiny
weaving
the precious magic
of poetry
in the creative pursuit
of perfection
this glorious day
i capture
the visual splendour
of the moment
with lustful eyes
riding on the brooding wings of hope
shining
like Neptune
serving up the delicious dreams
of life (in exile)
under the emotional force
of a soul reborn

My Journey


in my journey from Innocence
to Experience
under the yellow moon
i feel the flaming hand of love
the surge of life within
as i search for the wondrous
springs of time
two souls blend
in perfect harmony
i discover
the hidden wonder
of heaven’s fields at the foot
of the rainbow
i can feel the spark of your essence
the divine seed of light
that enriches my soul
liberating my consciousness
i fall into the new state of loving grace
turning my journey into positive energy
living the good life
by adapting to the shape of the wind
and finding fulfilment
in a world of infinite potentiality
and now, i bathe in your natural
beauty in the hot and flaming heart of desire
i find the centre
of my being
and access its power
as you hover
over my thoughts and feelings
eavesdropping
on my yearnings
i become smitten by the naked universe
of shadows – a dreamlike world
of silence and stillness
of beauty and endless joy
a world beyond good and evil
brimming with
the promise of endless love and freedom

A Summer of Shadows


the crying genius in my orbit
how wonderful
is the emotional power of tears?

i feel the rhythm of your
heartbeat
this hour of delight

the moon dazzles
smiling at me
as i jump into the future
at the crack of dawn
casting shadow on life
in the delicate
fringes of reason

life blossoms
in earnest
colouring my dreams

behold the deluge
of naked love particles
in my visual field
swollen with desire
chasing shadows
in the luminous
landscape of wonder

you transform the magic
flower of dawn
one petal at a time

you brighten my days with
edible beauty
the sound of hidden treasure

Dream of the New Dawn


i walk gently into
the new dawn
with a list of vivid dreams
connecting
the growing crystals of time
with my inner
thoughts and emotions
feasting
on the divine loaf
of light
under the shower
of love particles
my luck begins to change
as the sweet smile of new love
shines
through my veins
energising my soul
you anoint my body with
the living
fragrance
of promise
inspiring me
to the dizzying heights
of dreaming
a strange hand opens the luminous door for me
in the moist hour
blessing my soul
filling me with the joyful songs of destiny
as i break the colourful cloud
in silence
i yearn for wisdom
in a world of reason and energy and dark matter
rising to the heart of the beloved
how wonderful
is the sweet tension
in the new
dawn of awareness?

Sharing the Moment


joyful days in the suburbia
the sound
of funky Christmas

yummy poetry comes alive under
the gum tree
i learn the meaning of life

i recapture the magic of sharing
and laughter
this glorious day

i become my brother’s keeper
nurturing the dream
in the school of hard knocks

i share the love and festive
spirit
under the poetic sun

i sing Aussie like a soul
possessed
capturing the moment

life blossoms in earnest
like the
little beauty next door
