A Summer of Shadows


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

i feel the rhythm of your
heartbeat
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
