Fairest Flower

you are the magic fragrance of desire
the lucid stream of beauty that flashes through
my transparent soul; anointing my
body with the balm of love
yet, the icy cold wind continues
to blow away my dreams;
clouding my vision
smashing my hopes on the fatal shore
this deepest night,
sleep deserts me in the land of sleep

and yet, I find myself
i glide into the sublime realm of solitude
like a poet possessed
like a wandering neutron in orbit
like a desperate winter’s soul
falling into the sensuous hands of spring
seizing the moment…
nurturing the inner child
in this garden
of fairest flowers

i taste your divine nectar with lips of fire
longing for more…
love particles liberate
my consciousness
this fragile moment of being
i swim in the golden river of time
finding the doorway to serenity where
hopes and dreams cohere
the passion flower blooms in earnest
brightening my days forever

Touching the Moon

on the wings of Eros…
i taste
your divine essence

we find each other
in the primordial pond of time and…
the word becomes flesh

epiphany of desire
love quivers
in the first light of dawn

overwhelmed by the heat
of passion…we dance
to the pulsating rhythm of the earth

we morph into
oneness (you and I)
cradling the baby universe

on the first day
i grow in you in absolute silence
touching the moon with my fingers

i sample the divine
juice of life
bathing in your beauty

i become part of your goodness
feeding the love
molecules with limpid eyes
