Under the Gum Tree


bedspread of Venus in the
cosmic den
the joyful sense of wonder


i rise early like a whiff
of oxytocin
holding up the sky


autumn rose in rapture
i tap the
hidden energy of first light


two souls
become one under the gum tree
evening cool


creative tension in the
scented lane
yet, the cricket still sings
