Sharing the Light

i venture into
the stratosphere of compassion
like the sub-atomic particle
in love and emotion
sharing the light
feeding the hungry souls
in the baby universe of wonder
one refugee
at a time

new voices
capture the medium
tears of joy

the cricket sings
a lovely tune
with humour
my heart
sharing the love
and passion

poetry speaks
with lips of fire
on the wings of compassion
on the inner light and
my soul;
and suffering forever

Under the Flame Tree

the desert rose blossoms
like the heart of the beloved
in the first light of dawn
flooding my cells
and tissues with
the oxygen of passion

in a burst of energy and creativity
in the defining moment of awareness
i lick her divine nectar
with hungry lips
under the flame tree of desire
as the butterfly flaps its wings

the naked wind anoints
my body with
her magic fragrance
capturing the moment
and opening my mind forever

Chaos in the Dreamtime

chaos in the Dreamtime
yet, our hands touch
with such tenderness
my heart
as the divine
moment shines
awakening the soul
the fine flakes of joy
as we glide
into the living
radiance of promise

The Longest Hour

dark days in the ‘hood
yet, your light
shines upon my
soul like a diamond in the sky

compassion drops like the elixir of desire
like the divine nectar of being
like the droplets of love molecules
dressed in silence and emotion

you bless my soul in the longest
hour of the night; opening my eyes to the wondrous
seeds of survival; anointing my body with
the sweet fragrance of reason
