The Edible Flame

the edible flame
of wonder quivers on my pillow
touching my soul:
the mysteries of life sublime
and filling
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!

Seeds of Destiny

you go from solitude
to solitude; carrying
the seeds of destiny
breaking through the fog in bliss
rising to the sky
like the staircase to the moon
like the love bird
of the realm
with a necklace of poems

you reach
the height of passion
singing my name…
finding solace in the glittering
pond of hearts
the sweetest spirit
in silence

who says
the light of change
is always bitter
the rise
and rise
of the lost boy
a refugee
in the scented lane of promise

you are the sweet spring
of life
in full bloom
wholesome and pure
like the breast
of the desert moon
like the daughter
of dreaming
my soul
with sparks

sensing my hunger
you come to me in the moist hour
poetry blossoms in earnest
spreading intimacy
and putting a song on my lips

love particles speak to me sweetly
longing forever

you touch
my heart with love divine
seducing my senses

the alchemy of desire…
how wonderful is your essence
the magic
fragrance of spring foretold

i wrap myself
in your sweetness
the luminous beauty
the invisible love grows

Sharing the Dream

you cradle my heart
in the cold and dreary nights of winter
sharing the dream; singing the divine melody
with kindness and generosity of spirit

i ride the waves of solitude
with lips of fire
savouring your beauty
under the rose petals

you are the magic fragrance
of desire in the cold light of dawn
a real spice of life
in the long march of time

i dream of a new life
garnished with your essence
the endearing tonic of joy and happiness
in the luminous landscape of wonder

The Formless Journey

new dawn in Terra Australis
the African violet grows in silence
ravishing the pollen universe

the heart sings
flooding my humble soul with a
deluge of love particles

homeless children tremble
like the delicate
flower of wonder
facing the alchemy of growth…
rivers of tears
on the road to utopia

i hold your hand along
the fatal shore of time, as the roots
descend into darkness

we survived
the formless journey in style
hopes and dreams
in the City of Light
an amorous land of feathered splendour

esoteric truth revealed…
i feed the hungry soul in the ‘hood
changing my life forever

In My Orbit

the new star trembles
in my orbit
as your name drops
into my heart
like love molecules from the face of heaven
like the daughter of dreaming bearing gifts
like a startled soul moist with emotion
seeking refuge in the canopy of my humble heart
and taking possession of me
i ride the hidden tide of oneness
winning the heart of hearts
as new love emerges from the sweet apple of desire
opening my eyes to other ways of seeing
you are the flame of flames (the rose of my desire)
how wonderful is your
golden glow
the taste of your
nocturnal imaginings sublime

The Hungry Soul

you are the living
treasure of desire
the grain of joy
feeding my hungry soul
in the moist hour

you are the starry night of nights
that sings to me
as i quiver in you with delight
moulding the fecund universe
under the colourful light

i morph into your essence
as we celebrate the passion
of the dreamtime
massaging the paradigm with tears of joy
turning winter into summer

i taste a spoonful
of your beauty
in my darkest hour of need
finding solace
in your sweetness

your sublime fragrance drops
like honey on my pillow
like petals of glory at dawn
renewing my hope
on the fragile canvass of life

i tame the bees in silence
conquering the flowering
branch of the heart with glee
as your kisses burn through my dreams
oozing the divine metaphor
