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

Autumn where you live; spring where I live, yet we share the earth as one family.
