Heart of Dreams

still largely unseen by the naked eye
creative thoughts blossom
like the red roses
in the fecund garden
of the African Diaspora
as dreams drip
with honey
i walk into the realm
like the son of promise
in the moment of clarity
moving from one state of being
to another
yet, even with the daily struggle
for survival
in this heart of dreams
under the darkening cloud
there is an emerging synthesis at work
a strong sense of the self
and resilient
in the face of adversity
i watch as new ideas glow
like diamonds in the sky
revealing the human condition
i weave together
the unresolved questions
of the past, present and future
the fundamental questions that give
birth to the new dawn of awareness
on the long road to Utopia

The New Dawn

transcending time and space
i waltz into
the new dawn
like a soul possessed
under the swirling storms
i rise early
like the wandering sun
spreading the light
revealing the glittering particles
of ambition
i navigate my way between worlds
in real time
i catch
the universe next door
seeing the flowering
of love divine
i extract beauty
from the tears of desire
as the heart beats
from the depths of truth
feeling the pulse
of time
i draw the lustful angel
out of hiding
i manufacture hope
from the divine fragments of life
seizing the day

Finding the Way

i find the way to the true north
of my being; soaring like an eagle
moving like the charged particle
in the gravitational vortex of wonder

hope springs anew as i weave the new dawn
with gusto; carrying the torch of destiny
under the shadow of the past. My
feet a fragile wheel in the motion of time

lost in the colony of dreams
i discover the fundamental laws of survival, the laws
that make my day; spurring me into action
and firing my creative energy as the earth moves

i find the divine beauty of your essence
the sparkle of your gentle smile
overwhelms me, setting my world alight, as i taste
your dream in silence; feeling the love

i reach out to touch the cool face
of the lonely blossom in the
moist hour; sharing the wonderful gift of life
as love runs through my veins like the golden river of time

The Dreamtime

i sail through
the dreamtime
speck of light
immersed in solitude
finding Eve
under the rose petals
as love particles
bloom in earnest
my heart at dawn

Window to the Soul

i see myself in your
lovely eyes
as the earth moves
under the passionate
wings of Eros
flushed with endless desire
i immerse
in your beauty divine
tasting the dream
as your
eyes speak to me
i plunge
deeply into your gaze
the golden window
to the soul

The Grain of Truth

like the night parrot
of the realm
who dreams
of the luscious wings
of spring
the tapestry of life
i crack open
the grain of truth
savouring the harvest moon
