The Island of Dreams

endless struggle
on the island of dreams…
stormy night
yet, this boat of mine
continues to sail along
the passage of wonder;
waltzing with the waves
(there’s a sense of wellbeing
even of joy and
excitement in the
subterranean region of my heart);
embracing the light
like all these pebbles
on the Henley Beach

Spring Rain

on the mound of Venus
spring rain

i open the cherry
flower of desire

cosmic nymph
estrogen dances in the
heat of passion

in the camp…
colourful dreams

email from Venus
her thoughts drop like honey
on my hungry soul

flushed with desire…
how sweet is
the face of the new dawn?

hot spring
i sip
her divine nectar with glee
