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
like
the
speck of light
immersed in solitude
finding Eve
under the rose petals
as love particles
bloom in earnest
touching
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
opening
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
weaving
the tapestry of life
i crack open
the grain of truth
savouring the harvest moon

The Sound of Hope


i listen to the cheerful
sound of hope
in the broken world of shadows
as the rainbow lorikeet sings

your divine nectar
runs through my veins
feeding my dreams
on the glorious wings of hope

excitement stirs my body and soul into action
changing everything
as spring blossoms under the lustful
eyes of the wandering sun

i journey through the power of hope
morphing into blossom
i watch as you say the Word with glossy lips
whispering like the gentle wind under the rose petals

you are the fragrance of wonder
the charming dream that reigns over my heart
blessing my soul
with the precious gift of light

Seeing the Light


seeing the light
i swim in the blue waters
of the soul
as excitement runs
through my veins
i savour the knowledge
of your essence
in silence
capturing the moment
from the depth of truth
i fly like an eagle
on the luscious wings of wonder
i melt into the light divine
and flourish like the magic blossom
i paint
the mysterious world of words with gusto
kissing the divine syntax of life
with lips of fire
i see a new wave
of passion and creativity
a flash of inspiration
as the earth moves
i find the light of lights
in the tender face of hope
feeding
the hungry soul in the crack of dawn
