A Taste of Beauty


i sail through
the veins of the beloved
like the restless love particle
on a mission
finding solace
in the fragrant spring of life sublime
we
morph into oneness
feeding the dream
as the boundless
field of sweetness beckons
i break the shell of being with glee
revealing the mystery of life in all its manifestations
i move
into the blissful orbit in the moist hour
devouring your beauty
like an hungry soul
in the immense universe
of wonder
i cradle the luscious moon swathed in love
singing the songs of joy
as dreams come true under the glow
of your naked beauty
how wonderful is
the birth of light (and the soothing deluge of love)
in the greatest hour of need

The Waves of Change


out of my comfort zone
i ride the waves of change
like
the true
son of the soil
in the human universe
of meaning
harvesting the moon
i pluck the tangled
web of thought
in the field of dreams
before the chilly winds
of winter
i peddle
the language
of hope
as your smiling eyes
of love
fuel my longing
i turn over a new leaf in the nick of time
sharing the pleasure
i write an ode
to the enchanted doll of the realm
a dream lover
with exquisitely
sculpted lips
of promise
over the crescent moon

The Imagined Life of Selfie


in the brave
battle
for survival
you crack the code
of success
showing the wonderful colours
of your selfie
a self portrait of an imagined life
that brings to an end
the famish years of uncertainty
paving the way
for a brave
new dawn of promise
in the realm overflowing with
the creative
force
of desire
the living seeds of light and air
but selfie is an illusion
(an illusion that lifts the spirit of the moment)
it is an imagined universe
of the soul in need of satire
and by its very nature
selfie is the manifestation
of the hidden desires
and emotions
of the restless soul in the process of transition

Summer Night


summer night…
your beauty drops like honey
warming my heart


i drink a wonderful cup of you
with flaming lips
under the glow of the yellow moon


new dawn in my orbit
cherry blossoms
from the mesmerizing sound of first love

A Long Way from Home


a new lease
on life
in Terra Australis
and the birds
are feeling groovy
showing the creative
sparks of life
yet, like the wandering muse
of the realm
searching for inspiration
in silence
you spend your days
battling the gloom of night
as the new dawn
weaves its magic with gusto
pining for home
like
the lost boy
in distant
places of the heart
searching for the sky blue

Rising from the Shadows


escape from the maze of doom
i find solace
in the luminous orbit of desire

like the songbird of the realm
i spin my way
around the spinifex of time

weeping in the valley of tears
i weave a metaphor
rising from the shadows of the night

i extract nectar from the veins
of the gods
fulfilling my cherished dreams

longing for the new dawn
i taste
the Desert Springs in full bloom

a glimpse of the future under the rose petals
the naked moon jumps
for joy as love streams from my veins

Feeling the Love


i fly to the edge
of the fecund universe
of desire
healthy and free
like this beam of light
like the lonely soul on a mission
to discover the sweet waters
of imagination
in the back of beyond
clouded in mystery
i encounter
the powerful forces of reason
the forces that transform my soul
showering me
with love
and tenderness
in the moist hour
guiding me
in the right direction
as i morph into freshness
dazzling with ambition
like a lion
in the courting season
i seize the moment with gusto
weaving dreams
with a splash of colour
and feeling the love and
tenderness
in the naked night of nights
paving the way for the birth of a new dawn
