Rising from the Shadows


escape from the maze of doom
i find solace
in the luminous orbit of desire

like the songbird of the realm
i spin my way
around the spinifex of time

weeping in the valley of tears
i weave a metaphor
rising from the shadows of the night

i extract nectar from the veins
of the gods
fulfilling my cherished dreams

longing for the new dawn
i taste
the Desert Springs in full bloom

a glimpse of the future under the rose petals
the naked moon jumps
for joy as love streams from my veins
