Wings of Time


i fly
like an eagle
on the wings of time
searching
for meaning
moulding the future
with glee
under a different sky

Edible Beauty


one day in Terra Australis
i find myself in the heart of the living light
enjoying the fruits of the moment
in the tabernacle
of endless possibilities

i rise like the gentle wind of desire
sharing the light; nourishing the lonely heart
in the greatest hour of need
i weave into form the delicate fragments of life
in all its manifestations

i bathe in the glow of your essence
like this edible beauty
under the rose petals
seeking solace in the long journey
to the heart of dreams

Tales of Summer Bliss


in a world of complexity and beauty
i view the fragrant moon
with lustful eyes
savouring the moment

i explore the inner secrets
of life concealed by reason
as the desert blooms
in the imagined colony of the heart

you whisper the eternal truth in my ear
revealing the secret spot of desire
you unlock the pearly gates of wonder
cheering up the soul in the age of anxiety

overwhelmed by the thrill of summer bliss
my fear subsides as the earth moves
i devour the divine metaphor
in the moment of rapture

Last Night


in the blissful night
of love and longing
under the fragrant moon
i pour myself
into you
with all my ripening heart
sharing the beauty divine
as the mystery unfolds
i discover the truth
the deeper meaning of life
in the spring of my passion

Migrant's Dawn


fascinated by the splendour
of the migrant’s glorious dawn
i drink a wonderful cup of you
in the hour of desire
warming my heart and soul
as the rainbow lorikeet sings
i begin
to see
the world differently
feeding
the senses
like the true son
of the soil
as the sun shines through my veins
i glow like an electric blue
i start a new life of wonder
a life infused with
the mighty flow of dreams
and a good dose of love particles
as i gaze into the future

Out of the Shadows


a flash of light
in the centre
of our galaxy’s heart
signalling the birth
of Desire
as the earth moves
i play in the deep shadows
of wonder
finding a new universe
of meaning
sprinkled with the deepest affections
of my life
thus, as the Dream beckons
i fly
like an eagle
in the hour of unforbidden pleasure
holding up the sky
i spend
a thousand moons of glee
searching for you
in absolute silence
losing myself in your essence

Long summer’s Night


long summer's night
the fragrant
thoughts
of you flow through
my heart
like the secret
river of time
charting
the course
of true love
with glee
in full view of the yellow moon
