Dream of New Life

two worlds collide
a new life on this
rock of time

now, the taste
of heaven flows through my veins
like the sea of ecstasy
like the rush of passion in the morning
grooming love molecules within

the gentle spirit soars
as new light shines from the
sleepy bosom of the baby universe
purifying my soul
this longest day

i embrace the new
dawn of a thousand memories
like an orphan deprived
like the lonely child of welfare
like this tempting apple of my eye

and, yet, I hope for the best
like these refugees
in Terra Australis
doing the daily battle for
survival on the fatal shore

living the dream…
how wonderful is the
spring blossom
the warmth
of unseen hands!
