Longing for Home

each moment
of longing for Home
brings a torment
of some kind
a fracture
of the soul

the thought of divine love runs
through my veins
like the river of destiny

i search for the truth
in Terra Australis
stirring the lonely hearts

your lustful ways
of a novelty
a luscious taste of heaven
feeding my longing

hope jumps on me like
a shooting star
caressing my humble soul

joyful sound in Light Square
urgent dream
of the autumn leaf

a speck of light
on the dark
side of the moon
the vivid colours
of the mind

Dream Blossoms

amidst the chaos
love dances like an angel
dream blossoms

Songs of the Lost Boy

like a refugee from Mars
i arrive with nothing
nothing but the tears of sorrow in my eyes

lost in the ‘hood
only the moon comes to the rescue
providing succour; wiping away my tears
with a gentle hand of many colours

grains of love
on the fatal shore
feeding my hungry soul

i emerge from the thorn bush
of destiny with a necklace of poems
counting my blessings
drinking a wonderful cup of you

you whisper to me
in the moist hour; tempting me
with a drop of honey

i sense your sweetness in the air as i wander
into the wilderness with feet of clay
searching for the magic blossom
chanting the secret code of survival

new dawn. A ride on
the funky train changes everything
sowing the seeds of wonder

i search for the home
of my dreams divine; longing for you
like the true son of the soil
shining like the jewel of the Nile

i feast on the diet of pure love
cradling the baby universe with glee
a whiff of sunshine

my heart leaps for joy
as you sing my name under the rose petals
fanning the flame of passion
as the creative impulse flows

Grains of Love

the golden grains
of love in Terra Australis
autumn rain

you quiver in my orbit
like the restless love particle on heat
oozing desire

it’s May Day in Utopia
the maiden
flight of the autumn leaf

love dances in the air
like the vines
of the naked eucalyptus in my garden

the heart sings as i bathe
in the vibrant glow of your beauty
savouring your nectar

autumn rose
i find my glorious path in you
putting down roots

your living fragrance energises my soul
like the fecund dreams of love
like the moons of Saturn

a thousand nights of autumn foretold
the triumph
of the human spirit
