Out of the Shadows of Time

my luck shines
as bright as the light
of a thousand stars
as i move
out of the shadows of time
finding a new lease on life
in the spaces
between dreams

i feed
the hungry child
in the imagined
of ambition
by the angels
of uncertainty

yet, the power of love
on the fabric
of the earth
winding her way
into my humble heart
clearing my vision

Lonely Path

behold a flurry
of love particles and serenity
on my lonely journey
into the luminous
heart of beauty
harvesting the moon
and tasting the divine fruit
of the realm with flaming lips

i move forward in style
the future
with glee
near the
blue mountains

yet, the past
still cast a long shadow
over my dreams
as i weather the storm
like this cosmic dust
like the ghost
of the
rainbow warrior
on a mission
taming the dragons

you nourish
my naked soul with your
magic fragrance
my days
as i soldier on
(seeking peace)
with utmost delight
the flush
of bloom
from the distant galaxies

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

The Future Unfolds

i ascend into the future
like a lonely soul
in a colourful
garment of light
made of love particles

i seize the moment with gusto
feeling the ripples
of time and space
as i melt
into your essence
like the divine
chic of wonder
in the endless universe
of hopes and dreams

how wonderful
is the living
of the future world
blessed with
the whisperings
of the spring butterflies
the sublime
symphony of desire

now, as the future unfolds
i sing
like the wind
in the universe of shadows
the right
of reason
as the divine light
runs through
my veins
brightening my days forever
