The Sound of Summer

festive day in the city
the gusts
of summer wind

i sing like the rainbow warrior
on heat
glowing with intense inner life

waiting for the yellow moon
i sip
a cup of you in silence

how beautiful is the sunflower in the
garden of life
the scent of summer solstice

a fun night of nights sublime
yet, you sit like
a lonely heart reading haiku

in the dreamscape of destiny
i eat the
luscious moon before the first light of dawn

plunging into sweetness
i listen to
the sound of summer rain

behold a thousand colours of wonder
in my orbit
i burst into the vibrant life in the nick of time

with great
you nourish
the hungry soul

elements of certainty)

like the rising sun
in the mysterious river of love
seizing the moment
i find my way
through the fertile crescent of the mind
feeding the body and soul

A Summer of Shadows

the crying genius in my orbit
how wonderful
is the emotional power of tears?

i feel the rhythm of your
this hour of delight

the moon dazzles
smiling at me
as i jump into the future
at the crack of dawn
casting shadow on life
in the delicate
fringes of reason

life blossoms
in earnest
colouring my dreams

behold the deluge
of naked love particles
in my visual field
swollen with desire
chasing shadows
in the luminous
landscape of wonder

you transform the magic
flower of dawn
one petal at a time

you brighten my days with
edible beauty
the sound of hidden treasure

Dream of the New Dawn

i walk gently into
the new dawn
with a list of vivid dreams
the growing crystals of time
with my inner
thoughts and emotions
on the divine loaf
of light
under the shower
of love particles
my luck begins to change
as the sweet smile of new love
through my veins
energising my soul
you anoint my body with
the living
of promise
inspiring me
to the dizzying heights
of dreaming
a strange hand opens the luminous door for me
in the moist hour
blessing my soul
filling me with the joyful songs of destiny
as i break the colourful cloud
in silence
i yearn for wisdom
in a world of reason and energy and dark matter
rising to the heart of the beloved
how wonderful
is the sweet tension
in the new
dawn of awareness?
