Chant of the Lonely Heart

drawn to the colourful image
of the dreamtime
my heart leaps for joy
as the spring dances
in the wind before dawn

i find myself
in Findon like a speck of light
in the shadows
giving solace to the soul
under the rose petals
drinking a nice
cup of you
in full view of Venus
fleeting moment

i bond with
your essence
in the precious
moment of solitude
revealing the great mystery
of life
as your loving heat
warms my lonely heart
the dreaming sky

i sing your name
with flaming lips of desire
the waxing moon
opening a new frontier of reason
opening a new window
of opportunity
garnished with your
magic fragrance

Songs of the Lost Boy

the lost boy
in his element
weaving dreams
over the
harvest moon
the divine fruit
of knowledge
on the fatal shore
one piece
at a time

you are the
child of great promise
a survivalist
with ambition sublime
holding up the sky

you slap adversity
on the face (praying for mercy)
marching like
the leading force
of light in the dark places of the mind

you roar
like the lion of destiny
the new dawn
with unshakable optimism

and now
you carry the flame
of hope with glee
longing for solace
under the rising sun

The Street of Shadows

i morphed into the mind
of the beloved
in the moist hour; gathering dreams

your sweet fragrance of desire
becomes the light
the living light of my life

i taste the divine fruit of thought
chasing the
future in the street of shadows

i sow the seeds of destiny in the
nick of time
extolling the virtues of the desert utopia

you unlock my imagination under
the sky of blue
feeding my hungry soul

i move towards singularity
in the defining
moment when love flowers in my veins

Springtime Tales

driven by the divine
experience of life
in the fragrant heart of spring
i glide through
the luminous landscape of wonder
feeding the senses
as cherry blossoms
in earnest
i dance
to the sublime rhythm
of the soul
finding freshness
in the enchanting music
of your essence
the yellow moon
i soar like an eagle
waves of mesmerizing
calm washes
through my soul
like the photons of light from the sun
like the nectar of the first flower of spring
like the sound
of rare birds
yearning for solace
in the glorious springtime
of the heart
your true colours also
shine through my veins
my being
as i taste the sweetness of spring
with desire
like love particles
at the dawn of time

Smiling Eyes

behold a wonderful sense
of fun and humour
in the ‘hood
of promise
this tranquil night
as the secret
photons of desire
light up my orbit
with the
intoxicating fragrance
of beauty
born in song
opening the hidden
passage to the
cosmic cave
of treasures sublime
you shine
the divine
light on my
hungry soul
in the greatest hour of need
you give me
the eye
of delight; awakening the spirit
in so many ways
and giving me the reason to be…
billions of reasons
to smile
a lovely smile
like a single
atom lost in the
great flurry of life
in the suburbia of shadows
