The Golden Sun

the sparkling spirit of the golden sun
runs through
my veins
like the fecund river of nectar
like the waves of delight at
the moment of ecstasy
transmitting the wondrous
seeds of passion in the moist hour

your star shines
ever so brightly under the rose petals;
my soul
this day of days…
the rainbow
lorikeet sings
a lovely tune

and the eucalyptus blossoms
as you anoint my body
with the magic fragrance of desire
sharing the inner glow of the moment
whose essence warms my heart; reminding me of
our mini universe of oneness
our love and solitude
our common destiny

oh the smiling sun
oh the beloved star
you are
the light of lights
the flowering symbol of fecundity
the treasure house
of promise; holding the luminous
pearl of my dreams

i embrace
the beloved in full view of
the rainbow warrior
just as the small sun flickers in the distance
over the silver sea…
the colourful butterfly
to the rhythm of the earth

you are the golden sun of wonder
the prettiest of the prettiest, the gentle
giant of my being; building the pillars of the earth
showing the light
in the darkest places of the soul;
the broken hearts
with the divine nectar of passion from beyond
