The Rising Sun

i come in waves
of delight
like this ageless muse
like the wondrous lyrics of life
like the rising sun
by the
of similes
the intoxicating
of love
in the odyssey
of the mind

Seeds of Passion

sound waves of the soul in the moist hour
i melt into
the divine nectar of the beloved

i cross the boundary into
your orbit
devouring the fruit of your essence

two hearts meet in silence
you sow
the seeds of passion in my veins

edible nights of wonder in the secret garden
fecund cells jump
for joy; transforming my longing

like the neurons of destiny
i plant my
cosmic dreams in your heart

lost in the magic fragrance of desire
i drink
a cup of you with lips of fire

The Wandering Muse

behold the rosy glow
of joy on the
blue Mountains
of the
yet, i sit
like a poet possessed
the secret fragment
of a thousand
nights dream
with love
to catch the
wandering muse
in the full
light of dawn

The City of Dreams

i roam far and wide
in the city of dreams
clothed in the sublime
garment of light

i transform
my life as time weaves
its magic
in the spirit of the moment

i sink into the skin of heaven with glee
gazing into the breath of life that nurtures me
in this suburb of shadows
reawakening my sense of wonder

i savour a spoonful of dreams
opening the door to a brave new
world of timeless beauty
and transcendence

your goodness rains upon me
as i cuddle the moon in silence
who says you cannot reimagine
the inner beauty in the age of selfie?
