Pathway to Survival

the new door opens
and the Future
draws my soul into
her luminous orbit
pulling me back
from the brink
with delicate fingers

basking in the light
i discover
the inner
secrets of life
the true
depth of love
in the age of enlightenment

i smooth the rough
edges of reason as
colours my yearning…
i liberate my mind; finding
an immediate solution to my
years of anguish

i soar
like the hum of the cosmos
like this muse of desire
the sublime
power of your essence
in the womb of creation

behind the delicate winter scene
you dance
with great passion; sharing the light…
pushing the boundaries
of desire as the wind blows
my heart beats
like the talking drum of destiny

happiness runs through
my veins like this river of time
just as I conquer the fear of adversity
i find the pathway to survival
in Terra Australis
a silver lining
even in the darkest cloud

Winter Night's Dream

winter’s night
one atom touches my lonely heart
songs of praise

saints and sinners
in the Dreamtime garden foretold
the rise of white blossoms
the vivid memories
of first love portrayed
how wonderful
is the tender hand of the beloved?

i hover in your orbit
like the love particle on heat
re-imagining the “i”

the ancient night
weaves a new
of reality
with words
of love
feeding my dreams

i come of age
in the nick of time
eating the moon

and the earth moves
and the frisky neutrons
strut their stuff
in silence
i take
a chance
on you and win

love illuminates
the attic of my consciousness
purifying my soul
