Frisky Moon

frisky moon
i wake up in the crack of dawn
clothed in passion

behold the fragrance of love divine
the flaming
neurons are ready to rock again

you straddle two cultures
like this fragile
soul dancing in the wind

mars and Venus in the ecstatic flush
of life foretold
how sweet is the cosmic flame of desire?

living the dream like an angel
i fly
on the wings of ambition

you hold my hand in silence
like the Nefertiti’s kitten

under the starry night of wonder
i catch the
meteor of desire with one hand

overwhelmed with delight: i say there is
a lot of heaven
in the spaces between dreams

Life Blossoms

a new life blossoms
in Terra Australis
energising my soul
under the
rising sun
i tweet
the glories
of your essence
like this
rainbow lorikeet
of the
the mystery
of life
in the
landscape of dreams

i reimagine the antipodes
through a sense
of rhythm and wonder
i feed
the living god
in my orbit of survival
as the soul
rises from the ashes
the cosmic belt of Venus
the sky
in the
first light of dawn

Capturing the Moment

One day in Utopia
i lose myself in your nectar divine
devouring the dream

wondrous and true, i find myself
in Terra Australis with
a touch of magic and a good sense of the sublime

i build the spaceship of the mind
the cosmic rhythms of life

i escape from the myths of war
the sky blue; daring to dream again

a nice cup of you under the yellow moon
how wonderful
is the warm feeling of survival

i feel my way into the heart
of the beloved
finding the deeper mysteries of the mind

The Age of Selfie

acoustic waves of fun
in cyberspace
the museum of lonely hearts

the neurons
also come to play
in this
cave of shadows
my ipad
sharing the screen time
these cosmic dolls

you are the selfie of desire
the avatar
for fun and the source of creativity

winter’s night
i tweet
the glories of your selfie

i devour the moon in my
cool app
of choice, this solitary life

i shelter under the idyllic
wings of selfie
in the moment of emptiness

i move from selfie to selfie; capturing
the moment in time
like this refugee from way back

i wrestle with the blissful image
of blazing intensity
seeing the divine
beam of light
the morning after
the big bang dreaming
