The Young Lion of Promise


you are the young lion
of great promise
building the future
with the
magic fragrance
of love
you are the new light that flashes
in the
cosmic jungle
near the orbit of survival
where you rescue the wandering moon
under
the darkening sky
you find your way
into the imagined universe
of desire
in the
complex world of sweet delight
singing like a poet possessed
daring to dream
as the moon dances in your eyes
this glorious
night
you carry
the principles of the talking drum
to the far reaches of the realm
sharing hopes and dreams
with great
delight
you nourish
the hungry soul
with the
tingling first kiss of dawn
devouring the dream
as the earth moves
