Summer Night

summer night…
your beauty drops like honey
warming my heart

i drink a wonderful cup of you
with flaming lips
under the glow of the yellow moon

new dawn in my orbit
cherry blossoms
from the mesmerizing sound of first love

A Long Way from Home

a new lease
on life
in Terra Australis
and the birds
are feeling groovy
showing the creative
sparks of life
yet, like the wandering muse
of the realm
searching for inspiration
in silence
you spend your days
battling the gloom of night
as the new dawn
weaves its magic with gusto
pining for home
the lost boy
in distant
places of the heart
searching for the sky blue

Rising from the Shadows

escape from the maze of doom
i find solace
in the luminous orbit of desire

like the songbird of the realm
i spin my way
around the spinifex of time

weeping in the valley of tears
i weave a metaphor
rising from the shadows of the night

i extract nectar from the veins
of the gods
fulfilling my cherished dreams

longing for the new dawn
i taste
the Desert Springs in full bloom

a glimpse of the future under the rose petals
the naked moon jumps
for joy as love streams from my veins

Feeling the Love

i fly to the edge
of the fecund universe
of desire
healthy and free
like this beam of light
like the lonely soul on a mission
to discover the sweet waters
of imagination
in the back of beyond
clouded in mystery
i encounter
the powerful forces of reason
the forces that transform my soul
showering me
with love
and tenderness
in the moist hour
guiding me
in the right direction
as i morph into freshness
dazzling with ambition
like a lion
in the courting season
i seize the moment with gusto
weaving dreams
with a splash of colour
and feeling the love and
in the naked night of nights
paving the way for the birth of a new dawn
