Rainbow Dreaming

what if
i’m the brightest star
of your dreams?
what if, fondest one,
the cherry blossom
of my desire?
will the
still move?

Long Days of Solitude

long days of solitude
i find
the dream
in your
magic fragrance
feeling the love
as i plant
the divine seeds of life
under the
whispering stars
(transcending the moment)
my true potential
in the infinite
universe of shadows

The Eyes of Love

in the fleeting
of desire
the dreaming sky
i witness
the birth
of love
in your eyes

The Flame

you are the fire
of life
that burns
through my heart
energizing my soul
as cherry blossoms
not even the cold
winter’s rain
can douse the flame

Tenderfoot on the Move

behold the sublime image
of the tenderfoot
in the exotic landscape
of hope
carrying the colourful dreams of life
like the rosebud
in my father’s garden

i discover the inner
beauty of the migrant soul
struggling for survival
in the divine comedy
of this painful life under the sun

you emerge from the
cloud of dust with a burst of energy
like the rainbow lorikeet of Oz
sailing through the naked solitude
of antipodean sea

poetry blossoms
in earnest
dancing with my shadow

you find solace in
the secret places of the heart
this blissful night

you mend the broken hearts
with the divine fragrance of wonder
the seeds of love
before the first light of dawn
