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
feeding
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
way
through
the pleasure loop
sharing
the precious gift of the heart
as i bathe
in the sweet fragrance of your beauty
absolutely
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
reshaping
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
thoughtfulness
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
paradigm
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
and
raining gold
upon my
gentle soul
until the end of time

The Black Light


on the threshold of success
i find your
essence
the divine touch of light
in the
tumultuous
years of solitude

love particles glow
under
the fluorescent molecules
of black light
sharpening
my senses forever

gone are the days
of doubt
and uncertainty
welcome to the dawn of laughter
and ambition
as i move
ever so gently
through the spaces of time
as the radiance of black light shines
before my very eyes
i discover the secret path to Utopia

i bathe in your sublime beauty
basking in the
eternal delight of your presence
as the cleansing power of black light blazes
under my skin
bestowing knowledge and wisdom
ushering in the glorious new age of truth
and transparency

i experience the New Way with
a real sense
of purpose. A new sense
of freshness. A sense
of sudden liberation. A whiff
of heaven in the ‘hood

i dine with the mysterious
songbirds
of the realm
in the Caf├ęteria of shadows
savouring
the vivid colours of the light
as the centre of gravity shifts

i dance to the
rhythm
of the earth
sampling
the nectar
of the first flower of time
and shooting for the stars

The Divine Flower


you’re the divine flower
of reason
the fragrance
of beauty
that blossoms
in my orbit
in the first light of dawn

i am the lion of destiny
holding up
the sky
and keeping my life
in motion
in the
accelerating
universe of wonder

you’re love’s glorious gift
the smiling
pearl
of promise
that weaves
the blissful dream
in this cave
of shadows

now, you
sing my
name
with lips
of fire
blessing my soul

The Cloud


you plough
through the darkening cloud
stealing the moon

like the smart neuron of the soul
you turn on the light
pulling the golden strings of time

it’s the longest night
in Findon
tears of the refugee

you cross the Rubicon from
refugee to citizen
tasting the dream sublime

you’re the Eve of desire
veiled in mystery
feeding my longing in silence

the sunbeam flirts with
the moon
daring to dream again
