Fragments of Shattered Dreams

The young lion sprints into the isles of dreams in a blaze of delight, as the frangipani blossoms in earnest. Yet, the cricket does not sing. Sadness reigns over the land. And the future seems so uncertain.

fragments of shattered dreams
cry with me

The golden dawn brings with it a new way of life, a monster wave of challenges and opportunities. Hope beckons. Curiosity dances in the air. A dose of optimism liberates my consciousness; nourishing every atom of my being.

to find the future
the sound of soul train

The tide turns. I watch as sorrow and its complexities retreat. And the lost boy finds his way. Now, there is constant talk of survival, even of a new covenant after the fall, as the golden hand of desire wipes away my tears; blessing my days.

love particles come
to the rescue; rousing me from slumber
this fateful night

The Garden of Destiny

one hour of sunshine
and the garden of destiny
comes to life; uniting
the fragments of my life…
green shoots
burst to the surface
before my eyes; weaving desire
petals dance in the wind
like a thousand shades of love
like the scented pillows
of the spring moon
waiting for
the precious moment;
filling my heart
with waves of delight
