Hopeless Night

hopeless night on the Snowy Mountain
i manufacture
the power of hope in the greatest hour of need

i sow the seeds of joy in the garden
of wonder
before the first light of dawn

i morph into your essence on the mound
of Venus
weaving dreams in absolute silence

you watch over me like the cosmic maiden
with a thousand eyes
sheltering me from the chaos of this painful life

behold a cupful of hope in my orbit
with the divine grains of laughter

like the fragrance of the antipodean sun
i rise and triumph
waltzing with the morning glory of my dreams

The Villa of Promise

sensing the new dawn
i rise early
like the wandering sun
in the spaces between
deprivation and existence
feeling your presence
i find myself
in the great villa of promise
on the frontier of reason
sipping a nice
cup of you
with hungry lips
as love blossoms in earnest
putting a smile on my face
i bask in the naked beauty of your sweetness
of the living poetry
of the morning light
clothed in love
i open up
like the autumn rose in triumph
learning to fly
i blend and embrace
the new dawn
as the earth moves
nourishing my soul
in the divine
of your essence

Autumn Bliss

the golden leaf drops
like honey
maximising my autumn bliss

you come to me in waves
of desire
rocking my gentle world forever

you are the autumn cheek of my dreams
the magic fragrance
of the soul holding up the universe

the suns of autumn flirt with time
under the golden light
blooms flourish in my secret garden

the hungry birds at play over the
crescent moon
heightening my longing

cool autumn day. i walk like a soul
raking the fallen leaves with gusto
