58 (who?)
Lavished in celestial streams of rich azure,
her voice weaves thru star-systems with song
Depthless eyes fabled in mystery furnish worlds,
as conquests of time fold into silence...
She is the mystique of the cosmos — 'elixir immortale,
embalming the wilderness of dreams
O'er a thousand skies captive in the fever of her ocean;
my breath anchors, where a life-time of souls drown
in brushed whispers of candle flame

Kingdoms of passion unveil in ethereal tides,
as the sun traces her finger tips over my skin
Burning in Pleiadian mythology — I reach into vistas
of indigo towards the lips of a Goddess
Unto sapphire castles I sail, adrift in rhythms of euphoria
Evermore I feast in rivers of mysticism;
lucid galaxies undress upon the tip of my tongue
Flame of her kiss — Heaven's supernova, where my soul
shall be slain & made into the perfume of eternity

Hues of gold chase the shadows in my veins..
Artisans of destiny paint the odyssey of gossamer winds,
blushing like desert ambrosia in sacred constellations
Unconsciousness in amber-lit fields, I bathe in eons,
aching in mists of empyrean wisdom
Among thirst of Pyramids & treasured sands, I awaken,
haunted by timeless beauty and memories of bliss
The rapture of legends beseech the solitude of stars;
until rise again I and adorn the song of her love
