The Passage of Dreams

You found the passage
Of dreams and turned your
Back on Eden…
A cloud without a shred
Of silver lining

As the tide
Turned, he seized
The magic moment…
Just in time to witness
The birth of Destiny

The image of a restless
Soul; chasing…
The rainbow lorikeet
With tender foot

Ah, the magic possum…
Painting my dreams pink
With a handful of poems

Fear not, fondest one,
There’s a lyrical new voice
In the ‘hood
Revealing the secrets
Of the lost love

The seed
Of doubt disappears
In the golden
Dawn…a land
Full of surprises

Amidst the silence
Of the endless sea
The eagle
Found its wings
In the nick of time

And in the garden
Of the earthly delight…
Fortune’s lair
