Dreamtime Tales

the dreamtime tales
of wonder sublime; imagining
the mysteries
of the divine consciousness
under the glow of your essence

you shine
the light on the immortal
longings of the
lonely soul under the watchful
eye of the rainbow

frisky hormones
on the rampage; deflowering
the cell nucleus
in the primordial pond
of ravishing beauty

the microbes
also have their special night
of surreal pleasure
cradling the mystic egg before
the golden dawn

across the dark matter
(in the blissful realm) I witness
the glorious birth
of the cosmic nymph, a flurry of
love particles over the crescent moon

the electrons in
the scarlet clothing of desire
profoundly seduced
by the magic protons under
the trembling beam of light

love blossoms in
earnest; feeding the flame...
nourishing the lonely
soul with sweet thoughts of life
endowed with endless joy

i sow the holy
seed of destiny with great delight
seeing the divine truth ...
feeling the eternal beauty of pure
love emanating from the single spark

pearly smile...
under the warm glow
of passion divine

my soul with the sublime
images of love
finding ecstasy in the inner
world of desire

the divine song of beauty
this glorious night
you feed the flame of passion
with a delicate touch

The Soothing Voice of Passion

your soothing voice
fills the innermost depths of my
heart with joyful thoughts -
each word a clean slice of heaven
on a platter; the shining pearls
of wisdom contained

like the sweetest bird
of Oz after the winter solstice,
your inner voice creates the perfect
mood; exploring the miracles of life…
nurturing the fragile soul under
the trembling light

yours is the passionate voice of reason
flavoured with the elixir of joy…
the golden drops of honey plucked
from your sculptured lips
whose luscious blossom is the
lasting flower of the heart

it’s the voice of hope
painted with your kisses; a tonic
of delight in a mansion
of many dreaming rooms - a natural
mix of life, light, and desire

and now, I‘ve tasted
the eternal beauty of your divine
essence and enjoyed
its sweet and charming splendour…
scaling the symphonic heights of passion

Inner Beauty

the mighty
winter hits the land
with intimate
sound of silence, profoundly
seduced by solitude

yet, your
inner beauty gladdens
the heart and
brightens my days
with selfless gift

it re-ignites
the flame of passion
with timeless joy –
the basic ingredient of pure
love and ambition

it keeps
all things new and
fresh like
the mystical lily
in the pond

thus, inspired by
the divine presence, I see
the face of love…
feeling the mesmerizing
rhythm of your heartbeat

Ugandan Cricketers Face Deportation

Two Ugandan cricketers who, in 2007, fled their touring national team to seek refugee status in Australia have had their application rejected, according to the Weekly Times Messenger newspaper report.

Patrick Ochan, 19, and Jimmy Okello, 20, both orphans from the little village of Gulu in northern Uganda now face the real possibility of being deported from their temporary home in Adelaide, South Australia.

Meanwhile, fearing violence and bloodshed in their homeland, the orphans are terrified of being sent back to Uganda because they have no future in that country.

But, in the final analysis, only the goodwill of the Australian people and the intervention by the Immigration Minister can save them from their fate.

Love and Laughter

love and
laughter on the menu...
amorous lips
sizzling with new sparks of life
under the trembling light

our eyes meet
and the eternal glow of your
aura enlivens my soul

rhythms of love…
a rare Opportunity
to sample
an elixir of desire
full of dreams

you make the first
move, Iris; painting the future
with your kisses

you penetrate
the centre of my being
in the nick of time;
revealing the galaxy of colors
under the yellow moon

the sound
of your footsteps

banksias in bloom
near the secret passage of joy
the sudden flush
of luscious red flowers
bathed in winter’s sunlight

you swim like an
angel in the Sea of beauty…
the artistry of wonder

you witness
the timely birth of Desire
along the secret river
of the golden light
where love and laughter
reign supreme; banishing
the evil genius from
the human heart

a red rose
on my windowsill…
sweet thoughts of you

The Field of Dreams

by the divine light,
in the secret passage,
a place of Truth
and beauty, I glance
amorously at the immense
beauty of your essence.

i sit in awe, like
a poet possessed; recording
the fragments of life
in the field of dreams
where the fairy-wren sings
and the wild rose blooms
in silence before the dawn.

now, touched by your inner
beauty and scented lips, I
experience the joy and
fulfillment of life (so pure
and true)…the orgasmic taste
of your goodness sublime.

The African Spirit

you arouse true love
and compassion within my veins...
the African spirit

your gentle hand
guides me through the corridors
of thought; revealing
the embers of a fecund mind
and a thousand flowers in bloom

the voice of unreason
with pure love…

On the Beaten Track

at dawn
when the smiling sun warms
the beaten track…
the lost boy walks in silence
weaving a dream

the golden rays
capture the inner beauty
of the fragile
soul in the unfolding
drama of life foretold

now, the gentle
breeze gives up its secrets
ever so slowly
you find your niche along
the narrow passage

The Good People of Dorrigo

The residents of the small community of Dorrigo in New South Wales, Australia, have opened their hearts and minds to African refugees; deliberately inviting them to settle in the local community, according to the recent ABC-TV program.

The program focused on the plight of African refugees in the post-resettlement period; tracing the journey of Martha Malou, Martin Majok and their six children as they try to adjust to life in the new environment; doing the daily battle for survival in Dorrigo community.

Nevertheless, the point to note is that the good people of Dorrigo are prepared to support the new comers by providing food, shelter and clothing during the early days of arrival, despite the ongoing tension about the refugees elsewhere in the nation.

They, definitely, want the best for the African refugees in Australia.

It seems to me, quite clearly, that the destiny of the local community and that of the refugees are now very closely intertwined. Hard-wired to work, the Africans are ready for the new challenge and are feeling at home in Dorrigo community.

Some are working hard to improve themselves in so many ways and are doing it in style.

“I want to be Australian citizen because I want to be part of the community”, so says Martin, who is now working and studying and making a new life for himself in the thriving Dorrigo community Down Under.

Eye of the Beholder

the secret
river of love flows
ever so gently
under the watchful
eye of the beholder

cherry blossom...
weaving the wreath
of desire
with the first taste
of the nectar

the rise
of the fecund moon
the image of the spring
flower drunk with love

your red lips
speak softly of "us" as
i explore
the mystic fruit of your
essence with lustful eyes

a brush with
the intense passion of your
ways sublime...
spirited away by the sacred
poetry of desire

you turn up
the heat with your
magic touch
just like the frisky suns
of the summer past

finally, you lift
the veil and whisper love
(ever so tenderly)...
clearing the path to inner peace
with a spoonful of dreams

throb of your golden heart
of hearts revealed…
a passionate journey
over the rainbow

sing to me, egret…
the sweet songs of summer
soaked in love

you dance lightly
on the rose petal of my dreams
seeing beauty
in the inner sanctum
of my being

the ecstasy
of the gentle breeze profound…
radiance of the soul

with the exotic
heat, you capture the rarest
essence of desire…
the golden drop of
summer’s moon

your seductive
dance of wonder unfolds…
the miracle of being

The Secret Eden

The fecund
Poem nurtures the soul…
The secret Eden in her
Own image

Heartbeat of the gods…
The mystery of a perfect
Smile revealed

Beyond the limits
Of freewill, you flowered
Along with the roses…
The unspoken language
Of desire ingrained

You sing
The dreamtime melody…
Golden dawn

You share
The pulse of my rib…
This precious gift
Of love in the inner garden
Of dreams

The angelic face
Of the moon in focus…
Smiling Eve

Then the quest
For the perfect stanza begins…
The Odyssey
Of the enchanted spirit
Of the realm

You seize
The glorious moment…
The fertile crescent of my
Soul with glee
