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
through
the flame of passion
in festive mood; opening doors
singing
my name
over the rainbow

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

i yield
to the overwhelming
power
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
birth
of light
this festive year!
