Against the Odds


against the odds
you deliver me from the winter’s chill
in the spaces between
alienation and belonging
what if
you bring the divine light
into my life?
will the heart sing like never before?
will the springtime come with a vengeance
weeping
and flowering
like Venus on heat
like hope in the galaxy of wonder
like the hidden treasure of desire
feeding my passion
and what if
my heart beats for you as the earth moves
in the heat of the moment?
will you be
my wondrous flower of choice
and
the teddy bear of my dreams?

Hungry Soul


what if
i feed the hungry soul
with the
droplets
of your love and beauty?
will your secret river of honey
nourish my
tender ribs
soothing my
painful memories?
and
what if
a flash of your smile
lit up
the night?
will you feed my longing
with the endless
glow of emotion
under the full moon?

Flower Moon


what if
i taste your divine nectar
over the
flower moon
and
what if
i plant the seeds of love
on the fertile crescent
of your soul
my sweetest one
will love
and
happiness grow
like the wildfire in the finest
moment of desire?
will you sing and dance
like
a soul possessed?
and
what if
i feel the warmth
of your cheek
will you light my fire?

Lustful Angels


what if
i drink a wonderful cup
of you
in the first light of dawn?
will the
lustful angels come
and
what if
the love particles sing
like the
gentle wind
over the crescent moon?
will they
devour
the virgin star?

Rainbow Dreaming


what if
i’m the brightest star
of your dreams?
and
what if, fondest one,
you’re
the cherry blossom
of my desire?
will the
earth
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)
finding
my true potential
in the infinite
universe of shadows

The Eyes of Love


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