Fragments of Dreams

you step into the limelight
in fragments of dreams

your inner light shines upon me
in the moist hour
nourishing my soul forever

i ride the flowering dream along the
winding path
holding up the universe with glee

you are my joyful flame of destiny
the edible
fruit of wonder whispering to me 

i watch as you glide into my orbit with
a necklace of poems
capturing the echo of real happiness within

Dance of the Divine

poetry dances to the sound
of silence as the liquid
light shines upon me
my body and soul
words run through my veins
as the fire of your
divine poetry
burns ever so brightly
blessing my days
i find the Way, the lost metaphor
of reason beloved of the gods
i morph
into the soul of the beloved
like the divine drop of nectar
like the love particle on a mission
to rescue the wandering sun
you whisper to me
in the secret heaven of desire
under the rose petals
as the word becomes flesh
binding hearts and minds
in the blue waters
of the imagination
where love was born
i devour the moon
like a joyful soul under the poetic light
(in the defining moment of clarity)
sparkling like a lonely star
in the spaces between shadows

Heart of Wonder

lonely heart of hearts in Hanging Rock
there is
a place for you in my orbit of life

your sweetness shines through
the fog
putting a new spin on this painful life

cold winter’s night under the gum tree
i taste
your dream with flaming lips of desire

and the divine inspiration drops like honey
the moment under the rising sun

the bluebird sings of love and joy in the
land of Oz
painting a rainbow of fun and broken dreams

Word Matters

two words meet
on the blank pages of time
apple blossoms

you are the word that runs through my veins
the magic flower of reason
whispering the divine secrets of life in my ears

i devour the word like the hungry lion
of the realm
energizing my soul in the fecund light of day

you are the fragrance of desire
the hidden
power of the word within

i watch as your word flickers like the star
on the pages
of life charged with love particles

you are the powerful word of words in the deep
recesses of the brain
the perfect gift of the mind that made me
