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
