Daughter of Dreaming

the heart sings
as i venture into
the wellspring of beauty
and find your essence

you are the chosen daughter of Dreaming
the silent gift of love divine
the blossom of desire
quietly ripening with the season

the earth moves in your sublime presence
and the air seems sweeter than ever
as darkness gives birth to the light
that shoots to heaven; purifying my soul

i sing like an angel on heat
like the rainbow lorikeet
proclaiming the tingling first kiss
of the amorous Spring; overflowing with love

i drink a cup of you with lips of fire
dreaming of the season’s promise
with great delight; giggling up the storm
under the rose petals of the soul
