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
