The Art of Survival


you are the chosen seed of destiny
a dream in the process of becoming
battling the ingrained emotions
of love, fear, wonder and guilt
in the prefrontal cortex of the soul
shifting between the heart and mind

you hover around
my moral universe
in the first light of dawn
tempting me
with the glorious
fragrance of desire

love molecules run
through my veins
like the drones of choice
at the cutting-edge of cool
revealing
the precious art of survival

i can feel your heartbeat
your insatiable longing…
your inner state of mind
your excitement in the fleeting
moment of time
that defines my consciousness

The Flight of the Autumn Leaf


the autumn leaf in her element;
gliding like an ageless beauty on heat
dreaming of perfection
in the golden light of dawn

you take the world
by storm
spruiking desire

the heart flutters
in the moist hour
sharing the blissful
message
of love and hope

musing over
the yellow moon, the sound
of endless joy

i quiver in the living
splendour of your essence,
a taste of the powerful fragrance
that transforms my life

i dream
a colourful dream of wonder
orange blossoms

how wonderful is the maiden flight
of the autumn leaf!
the glorious cycle of life
in all its manifestations

The Heart of the Beloved


you are
the centre of my being
the wellspring of desire
in which i dwell

like the monk in solitude
i feed the mystery bird in blissful silence
devouring the moon
in the moment of rapture

i ride the waves of emotion
like the son of heaven in the threshold of awareness
like the soul in the delirium of ecstasy
drunk with love and passion sublime

i delve into the heart of the beloved
like the neuron on a mission
searching for the divine drop of honey foretold
re-imagining the universe of pure light

The Dreaming Sea


on my journey from inspiration
to transformation
i throw caution to the wind
embracing the naked truth

i walk alone
like an orphan deprived
waging peace

i ride the cosmic waves
of passion in Findonsphere where
love particles dance
to the rhythm of the heart

the molecules of desire
runs through
my veins in the moist hour

i capture the powerful force
for good; absorbing the light divine
drowning my sorrows
in the dreaming sea of bliss

new dawn
in Terra Australis
rays of hope

Sweet Memory


i rekindle the flame;
feeling the sweet memory
of first love
over the rainbow

i bathe in the beauty
of the beloved as the heart sings…
savouring her nectar
in the sublime moment of poetry

innocent thoughts drop like honey
like the stars in your eyes
like the divine sensation of oneness
brightening up my days forever

i crack the secret code
of desire in the nick of time
finding solace; solving the wicket
mystery of mind and body

The Spark of Life


you are the golden
seed of destiny; the creative mind
in motion
oozing light
riding the waves of change
as the flawless billabong morphs
into the silver sea

there’s a hidden treasure
in your soul
along with moments
of loneliness
of longing
of joy, passion
and beauty sublime

you fuel my hunger
with your
divine fragrance of desire,
a certain spark
that comes
to life
in the defining moment

Forest of the Lost


i walk along
the forest of the lost with tender foot
searching for
the sweet fragrance of life,
the true north of my being

love dances
under the eucalyptus tree
warming my heart.
yet, the cricket
does not sing

like the alchemist of desire,
i listen to the mesmerizing
sound of silence…
a slow journey
to the heart of the beloved

in the forest
of the
lost
i find
you

i capture
the divine moment with lustful eyes
feeding my longing
drinking from the naked solitude of the age,
the profound metaphor for survival

i find the wicket passage
as poetry runs through my veins
nurturing the mind, the centre of my soul,
the living flower of the realm,
the sublime core of everything
