Sharing the Moment

joyful days in the suburbia
the sound
of funky Christmas

yummy poetry comes alive under
the gum tree
i learn the meaning of life

i recapture the magic of sharing
and laughter
this glorious day

i become my brother’s keeper
nurturing the dream
in the school of hard knocks

i share the love and festive
under the poetic sun

i sing Aussie like a soul
capturing the moment

life blossoms in earnest
like the
little beauty next door

Festive Cheer

the bloom of desire
in Findon
summer’s beautiful light

haiku works its magic
the songbird of the heart

festive cheer
i drink a cup of you with
flaming lips

you fill my heart with
the scent of jasmine

divine poetry
dances in the wind
summer chic

a gift for every child…
how wonderful
is the golden feast of the imagination

a new voice in the hood
the image
of a gentle light made of steel

Between Two Worlds

in utopia
i spread
my wings
two worlds
feeding the dream
and soothing
the lonely hearts
in silence
i see
the moon
in action sublime
as i taste
the divine love
that dances
in my veins
this glorious night
i savour
the inner beauty
of your essence
basking in the magic fragrance
of wonder
all through
the night

The Gift

you are the gift
of the harvest moon
the elixir of delicate pleasure
glowing in my psyche
like the new dawn
to match
my colourful dreams
in the hour
of solitude
you shine
like the light of destiny
like the sublime moons of Saturn
flowing with
the living
waters of life
and energy divine
this glorious moment
your golden touch
lightens the mood
fuelling my longing
the jagged edge
of life in exile
as the
flaming petals of desire
warm my heart
with divine metaphors
showering me
with the radiant blossoms of the mind
