Living the Dream

on the trail of the divine
in the turbulent mountain
over the rainbow
i put down
some roots
a thousand flowers bloom
living the dream
feeling the gentle hand of promise
(as joy flows
through my being)
hope rises
like the morning sun
like this child of destiny
the precious magic
of poetry
in the creative pursuit
of perfection
this glorious day
i capture
the visual splendour
of the moment
with lustful eyes
riding on the brooding wings of hope
like Neptune
serving up the delicious dreams
of life (in exile)
under the emotional force
of a soul reborn

My Journey

in my journey from Innocence
to Experience
under the yellow moon
i feel the flaming hand of love
the surge of life within
as i search for the wondrous
springs of time
two souls blend
in perfect harmony
i discover
the hidden wonder
of heaven’s fields at the foot
of the rainbow
i can feel the spark of your essence
the divine seed of light
that enriches my soul
liberating my consciousness
i fall into the new state of loving grace
turning my journey into positive energy
living the good life
by adapting to the shape of the wind
and finding fulfilment
in a world of infinite potentiality
and now, i bathe in your natural
beauty in the hot and flaming heart of desire
i find the centre
of my being
and access its power
as you hover
over my thoughts and feelings
on my yearnings
i become smitten by the naked universe
of shadows – a dreamlike world
of silence and stillness
of beauty and endless joy
a world beyond good and evil
brimming with
the promise of endless love and freedom

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?
