The Thorn Bush

surviving the night
in the thorn bush of destiny
i distil your essence
in disciplined silence
enjoying the light breeze of emotion

two souls unite in the moist hour;
sowing the seeds of passion sublime
feeding the love molecules
with enduring pleasure (ecstasy of the gentle mind);
bringing great relief to my years of longing

love blossoms in earnest
as the butterfly flaps its wings
i tweet the wondrous
glory of the sunburnt country
staring into infinity

the thorn bush
drips with honey; filling my lonely heart
with endless joy and desire
yet, i sit like the rainbow warrior on heat
asking for more; dreaming of the new dawn of wonder

now, i bathe in your sublime beauty
as we morph into oneness
capturing the tender moment
and drinking a wonderful
cup of you with lips of fire

you are the light of lights
the force of nature
the majestic symbol of the living soul...
a Silver Star quivering
in my orbit

Mystical Moment

solitude in the heavenly
island of bliss
i listen to the musings
of the eucalyptus,
the summer flowering genius
beloved of the gods

i capture
the elusive moon
in the sublime moment
of the soul
rocking the cradle
of memories with glee

how wonderful is the gentle
wind that sings a lovely tune
over the great dune of time
the divine petals of joy
as light filters through my soul

i crack
the secret code
of survival
of health and peace and happiness
savouring the beauty
of the desert rose
