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
dreaming
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
flame
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
possessed
raking the fallen leaves with gusto
