Light of My Heart

you are the visible light
that shines through my being
my orbit with the golden petals of wonder
the blossoming

you are the light waves
of desire
my hottie
muse of time
sowing the divine seeds of joy
in the secret places
of the heart

now i see nothing
so beautiful
and nothing so colourful
as the naked light
of reason
in the
spectrum of the moment

and through you, my beloved
i have seen
the light
of lights in my heart
the big bang of desire
in the
moist hour

you are the sublime gift of sight
the ravishing light
of destiny
energising my
hungry soul
reflecting on this ship of dreams
as time begins anew

Child of Promise

you capture the moment
with gusto
turning the corner in life’s endless journey
and waltzing with the waves
as the rainbow (bathed in colourful light) snakes
its way through
the dreamscape of wonder
like a soul looking for love
in the imagined
universe of desire

at dawn, you sow the seeds
of destiny
sharing the joyful news
from the Oil Rivers province of time
where a new star was born and
where the guardian angel
with lips
of glory

you turn your anger
into the creative force of nature
the source
of wealth and love
and compassion for many

like the little drummer boy
you grow from innocence
to experience (the naked reality of living
in the city of light)
finding your way to the true north
of your being
free from the winter’s
deadly storm
that shakes
the inner
blossom of the soul

Priceless Moment

i find the traces of you
in the first light of dawn
moulding joy
and laughter
with the divine metaphors of desire
and finding the truth
in the priceless moment
of clarity
in the oasis
of time
oh what a pleasure it is
to gaze upon
your sublime beauty
as your essence shines through my veins
like this jewel of the Nile
like the restless love particles on heat
like the blooming slice
of heaven for the gentle soul:
a wealth
of sweet wonders
in the desert of despair
the golden grain
of thought
inside me

Haiku days

a warm day in Findon
the kangaroo paw blossoms under
the darkening sky

high hopes on the road
to utopia
a journey of transcendence

i walk proudly
like Nefertiti’s kitten
weaving dreams

full moon in the ‘hood:
you dance like a soul possessed
feeding my longing

scent of the eucalyptus
the koala dreams
of home in the heart of spring

i taste your divine nectar
with lips of fire…
rapture in the final frontier

now on the wings of wisdom -
i crack the secret
code of life before the cock crows
