Petals of Light


poetry comes alive
with joyful petals of light
as the lovely spring colours
adorn the meadow

the golden wattle sings
touching my heart
caressing my soul with the deep fragrance of beauty
this glorious day

i emerge from
the ‘hood of coolness like a hero
like the rainbow warrior
striving for perfection in the first light of dawn

Bloodmoon


on the cusp of greatness…
bloodmoon
in my visual field
how wonderful is
the night sky
swollen with dreams?

bloodmoon in Findon
the sound
of heavenly joy

Daughter of Dreaming


the heart sings
as i venture into
the wellspring of beauty
and find your essence

you are the chosen daughter of Dreaming
the silent gift of love divine
the blossom of desire
quietly ripening with the season

the earth moves in your sublime presence
and the air seems sweeter than ever
as darkness gives birth to the light
that shoots to heaven; purifying my soul

i sing like an angel on heat
like the rainbow lorikeet
proclaiming the tingling first kiss
of the amorous Spring; overflowing with love

i drink a cup of you with lips of fire
dreaming of the season’s promise
with great delight; giggling up the storm
under the rose petals of the soul

On the Wings of Progress


like an Amazon
you straddle two continents
transcending cultures
in your journey of self-discovery
tracing the footprints of the past written in the stars
when the universe was young

you march
towards the future
with
a whoop of delight
longing
for the magic blossom

yet, nostalgia for the ancient
nights
(and for the values
of your ancestral home)
continues
to colour your dreams

you ride on the wings of progress
seizing the day with glee and feeding the hungry soul:
please don’t look back
don’t give up the struggle
don’t fall in love with the Kingdom
of your lost childhood because it will break your heart

now, be like me
embrace the new dawn
with all your heart and feel the difference
immerse yourself
in the intoxicating fragrance
of the beloved and taste her naked smile

dance with
the golden wattle
of desire
under
the wandering moon
and kiss the flame

Hopes and Dreams


the frisky atoms
circle the mound of Venus
like the cosmic butterflies
rousing
the love molecules
as I nibble on
the luminous ear of the beloved

i pluck
the suns of Findon
with one hand
caressing the moon
changing
the wicket paradigm
with hopes
and dreams

i float
like the wings of time sublime
like the true son of the expanding universe
longing for you
as the golden light
shines
upon me
enriching my soul forever

the Mother Earth
listens to my heartbeat with passion
revealing the inner secrets of life foretold
touching
caring
nurturing
loving me
dragging me
deeper and deeper
into her warm embrace
in the greatest hour of need

the secret
of survival liberates my consciousness
running through
every cell in my body
opening my eyes to a new life
of countless possibilities
a new world of love and peace
as cherry blossoms

Two Hearts Meet


two hearts meet
in the crack dawn
morphing into oneness
like song and dance
in emotional ecstasy
creating and multiplying with glee

love blossoms
in disciplined silence
as light filters
through the darkness
filling my heart with joy

dinner in the Moonflower Palace
i feed the love particles
with wit and humour

the living bread sizzles
in the oven; splitting an atom
in the moist hour

How wonderful is the soul
in the state of great rapture?
the neurons
jump for joy
and my heart throbs
with excitement
as i savour your beauty

The Edible Flame


the edible flame
of wonder quivers on my pillow
touching my soul:
revealing
the mysteries of life sublime
and filling
my
heart with joy

i enter you
as i enter the dawn of consciousness
by the crystal sea
morphing into oneness
sharing the mesmerising
sound of your heartbeat
as my neurons dance
to the ecstatic rhythm of your love

i sail through
the luminous canal of desire
in the moist hour
yearning for you…
how wonderful
it is to find your essence,
the inner light of your divine hotness
in the nick of time!
