Christmas on the Fatal Shore

christmas on the fatal shore
i ride the waves
of optimism;
turning on the light of reason
as i carry
the weight
of this secret love

your essence flows
the flame of passion
in festive mood; opening doors
my name
over the rainbow

your delicate love reigns over me
my heart
and soul
and liberating
my consciousness
as the jacaranda blossoms

i yield
to the overwhelming
of your love
and sublime presence
at the
dawn of reality

i become part of
something big
something so divine...
how wonderful
is the glorious
of light
this festive year!

Songs of Narcissus

songs of Narcissus
i tweet
the new dawn of cyberspace

you sparkle like the
crystal blue
fuelling my longing

love flows
like the summer river of time
chasing shadows

the genius of selfie foretold
the emptiness
of the soul in disguise

email from the edge
the search for meaning, the rise and fall
of complex emotions

the moon in her element
the realm with gusto

the soul in Instagram
images of fun and frivolity

imagining the naked self in the
virtual universe of desire…
the terrible beauty of self-infatuation

i burn with joy on the digital
screen of wonder
as brain neurons light up the world
