Under the Flame Tree

the desert rose blossoms
like the heart of the beloved
in the first light of dawn
flooding my cells
and tissues with
the oxygen of passion

in a burst of energy and creativity
in the defining moment of awareness
i lick her divine nectar
with hungry lips
under the flame tree of desire
as the butterfly flaps its wings

the naked wind anoints
my body with
her magic fragrance
capturing the moment
and opening my mind forever

Chaos in the Dreamtime

chaos in the Dreamtime
yet, our hands touch
with such tenderness
my heart
as the divine
moment shines
awakening the soul
the fine flakes of joy
as we glide
into the living
radiance of promise

The Longest Hour

dark days in the ‘hood
yet, your light
shines upon my
soul like a diamond in the sky

compassion drops like the elixir of desire
like the divine nectar of being
like the droplets of love molecules
dressed in silence and emotion

you bless my soul in the longest
hour of the night; opening my eyes to the wondrous
seeds of survival; anointing my body with
the sweet fragrance of reason

A Drop of Honey

a taste of spring
in Terra Australis
hormone blossoms

cooling off…
i lick
the nectar with delicate tongue

the sun rises
on the mound of Venus
stealing kisses

a drop of honey and your
smile blossoms
like this daisy in my garden

longest night
i devour the yellow moon
in my first orbit

the blushing bride
in full bloom
why are we so lucky?

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

on the cusp of greatness…
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
