On the Divine Diet of Love and Laughter


you come like an angel in the
moist hour
dancing with my spirit under the fecund moon

behold the birth of true love
amid the suffering
bold and beautiful like the rising sun

you ‘re my living flower of choice
my flame of delight
mixed with the divine diet of laughter

the heart sings of love under
the rose petals
blessing my days forever

you ‘re my bird of fortune foretold
the sweet waters
of desire flowing through my veins

Paradise Dreaming


paradise dreaming
colourful birds in my visual field
autumn delight

jewels of hope
on the long road to utopia
the sound of flowers

a touch of destiny in the moist hour
as true love
blossoms over the rainbow

you sing my name with
lips of fire
blessing my days with love and affection

behold the surprising texture of your longing
your lust and desire
tears and laughter in the shadows of dreaming

the essence of your beauty runs
through my veins
shaping my fecund dreams forever

Fragrant Light


with a flash of inspiration
i walk
like a lonely lion
in the woods of time
flirting with autumn
and
savouring
the
dream
in the wondrous landscape of hope
i think of you in silence
as i explore
the labyrinth
of desire
in the fragrant light of dawn

Dreamer's Tales


the dreamer’s tales
of survival break the long silence on
the rocky road to Utopia
under the darkening sky

yet, despite the mud, sweat
and endless tears
(along the way)
you seize the day with ease

like the noble dreamer
of old, you search for
a better life
on the landscape of promise

you conquer loneliness
in the field of dreams
flirting with the colourful birds of desire
in the scented lane

a splash of inspiration runs through my veins
clearing my vision
as the journey continues in earnest
chasing the dream

behold the sound of joy near the Pearly Gate
a taste of love and compassion
as dream blossoms
in the migrant universe of everything

A Life Transformed


the word becomes flesh in the
nick of time
fuelling my longing in so many ways


i morph into existence under
the fragrant moon
building a new life out of adversity


i take the snowy mountain
by storm
painting the rainbow with gusto


i sail through the rivers of wonder
carrying the dreams
the profound thoughts of the future unveiled

Wings of Time


i fly
like an eagle
on the wings of time
searching
for meaning
moulding the future
with glee
under a different sky

Edible Beauty


one day in Terra Australis
i find myself in the heart of the living light
enjoying the fruits of the moment
in the tabernacle
of endless possibilities

i rise like the gentle wind of desire
sharing the light; nourishing the lonely heart
in the greatest hour of need
i weave into form the delicate fragments of life
in all its manifestations

i bathe in the glow of your essence
like this edible beauty
under the rose petals
seeking solace in the long journey
to the heart of dreams
