Seeds of Passion

sound waves of the soul in the moist hour
i melt into
the divine nectar of the beloved

i cross the boundary into
your orbit
devouring the fruit of your essence

two hearts meet in silence
you sow
the seeds of passion in my veins

edible nights of wonder in the secret garden
fecund cells jump
for joy; transforming my longing

like the neurons of destiny
i plant my
cosmic dreams in your heart

lost in the magic fragrance of desire
i drink
a cup of you with lips of fire

The Wandering Muse

behold the rosy glow
of joy on the
blue Mountains
of the
yet, i sit
like a poet possessed
the secret fragment
of a thousand
nights dream
with love
to catch the
wandering muse
in the full
light of dawn

The City of Dreams

i roam far and wide
in the city of dreams
clothed in the sublime
garment of light

i transform
my life as time weaves
its magic
in the spirit of the moment

i sink into the skin of heaven with glee
gazing into the breath of life that nurtures me
in this suburb of shadows
reawakening my sense of wonder

i savour a spoonful of dreams
opening the door to a brave new
world of timeless beauty
and transcendence

your goodness rains upon me
as i cuddle the moon in silence
who says you cannot reimagine
the inner beauty in the age of selfie?

New Life

a new life for the
cool cat
chasing the dream

my luck shines as bright as the
shooting stars
in a cold winter’s night

i jump for joy
the hungry child with glee

in the footsteps of the gods…
how wonderful
is the quest for nectar under the living light

the neurons also glow with envy
as i embrace
the lustful fragrance of dawn

i soar like an eagle
on heat
kissing the rainbow

Waves of Desire

you come in waves
of desire
like the sweet bird
of beauty
weaving dreams
and like the waxing crescent moon
you feel your
the pleasure loop
the precious gift of the heart
as i bathe
in the sweet fragrance of your beauty
keen to discover
the innermost
secrets of the universe
now, i sow the seeds
of destiny
in the hungry light of dawn
at the end
of the rainbow
the landscape of the mind
the landscape
beloved of the gods

Days of Wonder

days of wonder in Terra Australis
i float through
time and space; capturing the moment

behold the divine fragrance of reason
in my magnetic field
a taste of diversity and beauty

the flower of a thousand winters
blossom as Jupiter
and the moon rule the sky of dreams

two hearts meet in silence
the sound of
love particles in the defining moment

your edible smile shines through
my veins
touching the metaphysics of my soul

winter’s night - i jump into the bed of light
with tenderness
tasting the divine nectar of wonder

On the Wings of Ambition

sailing in the warm waters
of desire
in the spaces between
and stillness
ambition shines through
my veins
feeding the neurons
searching for the central pillar
of my universe

behold the birth of light
on the mountains
of shattered dreams
as the new
comes to the rescue
on the wings of ambition
blessing my days
under the rainbow
and creating a world of shadows
and complex essences

your beauty glows
like the mystery rivers of time
like the red rose in a glass of wonder
like this moon in my orbit
blooming with desire
raining gold
upon my
gentle soul
until the end of time
