Scented Leaves


like the fine dust
of the immortal soul
you plod along
the luminous landscape of time
sowing the divine
seeds of heaven
in full view of Venus
and the exploding stars
of the baby universe

and over the rainbow
the inner core of being unveils
her mysteries as you moan
and groan
in ecstasy
spreading like an edible cloud
in all its glory
as the night shines like the day

the naked thunder roars
when the luscious moon captures
the moment
in my secret garden
as the scented leaves flower
into spring bloom
feeding the flame
of desire
at the crack of dawn

your smile blossoms
on my pillow; shining
like the light of a thousand moons
nourishing
my body and soul
like this drop of honey
on my hungry lips
