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
