A Drop of Honey

a taste of spring
in Terra Australis
hormone blossoms

cooling off…
i lick
the nectar with delicate tongue

the sun rises
on the mound of Venus
stealing kisses

a drop of honey and your
smile blossoms
like this daisy in my garden

longest night
i devour the yellow moon
in my first orbit

the blushing bride
in full bloom
why are we so lucky?

Petals of Light

poetry comes alive
with joyful petals of light
as the lovely spring colours
adorn the meadow

the golden wattle sings
touching my heart
caressing my soul with the deep fragrance of beauty
this glorious day

i emerge from
the ‘hood of coolness like a hero
like the rainbow warrior
striving for perfection in the first light of dawn

on the cusp of greatness…
in my visual field
how wonderful is
the night sky
swollen with dreams?

bloodmoon in Findon
the sound
of heavenly joy

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
