The Island of Flowers

Love
On the island of flowers
This day of spring
Frisky butterflies on heat
Sumptuous wings

Free spirits
In tender moments
Of absolute bliss
Bonding in secret places of
Beauty and mystery

Scent
Of the smitten Jacaranda
In bloom …
Sensitive tongues locked in silence
Amorous red lips full of joy

Carry me
On your golden wings across
The Milky Way
Oh sweet butterfly; vaulting
The great cosmic divide

The majestic
Beauty of African violets
Nourishes the soul
Breathing a brand new life
Into the antipodean garden

Beautiful is the land
And the glorious flowers that
Time forgot…
The simple pleasures
Of life foretold
