Sharing the Dream

you cradle my heart
in the cold and dreary nights of winter
sharing the dream; singing the divine melody
with kindness and generosity of spirit

i ride the waves of solitude
with lips of fire
savouring your beauty
under the rose petals

you are the magic fragrance
of desire in the cold light of dawn
a real spice of life
in the long march of time

i dream of a new life
garnished with your essence
the endearing tonic of joy and happiness
in the luminous landscape of wonder

The Formless Journey

new dawn in Terra Australis
the African violet grows in silence
ravishing the pollen universe

the heart sings
flooding my humble soul with a
deluge of love particles

homeless children tremble
like the delicate
flower of wonder
facing the alchemy of growth…
rivers of tears
on the road to utopia

i hold your hand along
the fatal shore of time, as the roots
descend into darkness

we survived
the formless journey in style
hopes and dreams
in the City of Light
an amorous land of feathered splendour

esoteric truth revealed…
i feed the hungry soul in the ‘hood
changing my life forever

In My Orbit

the new star trembles
in my orbit
as your name drops
into my heart
like love molecules from the face of heaven
like the daughter of dreaming bearing gifts
like a startled soul moist with emotion
seeking refuge in the canopy of my humble heart
and taking possession of me
i ride the hidden tide of oneness
winning the heart of hearts
as new love emerges from the sweet apple of desire
opening my eyes to other ways of seeing
you are the flame of flames (the rose of my desire)
how wonderful is your
golden glow
the taste of your
nocturnal imaginings sublime
