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
