Ripples of the Heart

the ripples of love molecules
shine through my veins
the secret code
of life in the
spaces between metaphors
as the
rainbow lorikeet sings

poetry lurks in the shadows
sending ripples
through the fecund universe

the luminous waves
of desire captures
the moment
as I dance in the rain of beauty
like the fragrant moon
in the inner
places of the heart

apple blossoms
the heart in the moist hour
