The Divine Gift

lost in the back of beyond
under the darkening sky
i fly on
the wings of reason
morphing into the light
i dine on hope
and excitement
garnished with passion
i taste the divine
drop of your goodness
the drop of goodness
that inspires me
with songs of wonder
you bless my days with the supreme diet
of optimism
the divine gift
of life in all its complexity

Scent of the Supermoon

behold the Supermoon
in all
her glory
oozing with desire
up the sky
with the
alchemy of wonder
as true love
in my orbit
weaving dreams
cosmic delight

Days of Longing

it’s a rough and tumble
on the
long road
to utopia
yet, i seize the day with gusto
as my luck shines
like the sparkling sapphire of the realm
like the star
in a cloudless night’s sky
feeding my longing
i sense your presence
and true
as my heart beats
on a diet of invisible text
messages across
the endless universe of cells
you anoint
my body
with the sweet fragrance
of ambition
garnished with
the sublime fragments
of light
in a complex
new world
of desire
that colours my dreams
ushering in
the springtime of my life

Touched by the Light

touched by the light in the nick of time
i unlock the
mystery of the universe in all its glory

behold the coloured flashes of life beyond
the stressful realm
as i bathe in the divine waves of light

i write the first stanza of the Dreamtime
tales of love so divine
in a soulful night swollen with dreams

i drink a nice cup of you with flaming lips
tasting your
beauty with stars dancing in my eyes

the sweet scent of your goodness
overwhelms me
in the pantheon of the beloved

i dance under the secret sun of time that shines on me
moving like an angel
in the endless discotheque of life foretold

how wonderful it is to share the sublime
passion for
fun even in the field of broken dreams
