Ode to God Particle

you bathe my
soul in the light of wonder
feeling the power of God particle

now, you bring matter
into being; nourishing the elusive
atoms and quarks of time

like the moon in me,
you infuse my being with the thinking
particle of desire

you are the invisible
force of nature; the omnipresent
author of my life

you, Higgs boson, flirted with passion
after the Big Bang
rousing the love molecules in my veins

i break into joyfulness as the cosmic wave
dances to the rhythm of the earth
how wonderful is your essence; oh, Precious One

you are the music of light, the creative
impulse holding up the sky: can the spider’s web
exist without the design and the Designer?

behold the dark enigma
showing the divine lights of love
comforting my humble soul

you are the glue that holds
the secret of the universe; giving
birth to TOE, the theory of everything

Haiku Rain

the golden wattle blossoms
filling my
emptiness with dreams

fresh face
in the ‘hood…the scent of
jasmine on my pillow

haiku rain…
nourishing the naked trees
of Findon in silence

your sweetness runs through
my veins
like the gift of life

little nuns of delight
in my visual field, how delicious is
the taste of your lollipop

love bites…
savouring the blissful moment
under the rose petals
