Heathland Rose

Smouldering ruby cirrus

stir night’s endless

deep with dream

abandoned to morning’s

rippled flame lapping

bruised shadow

from the surface of

Empyreans heavenly mirror


Heathland kissed rose as

argent winged obsession,

quivering on petals

dewy bud.

Purled pink beneath

 love’s flawless web

bound to earth

by fingers

trailing glassine beads

upon Gaia’s recumbence

Corporeal nature sensuous

within solid dream.

Simmering solar breeze

flood morning’s flower

with vivid fantasy

abandoned to a

distant star etching

bright silk veneer

upon the surface of

Gaia’s misted vale.


 Hearthland kissed rose as

ardent winged obsession

flittering on petals

sticky bloom.

Melted honey upon

bright green fuse

rising from earth

amidst zephyr spun pearls

trailing wet polish

upon Gaia’s procumberence

Intimate nature sensual

within soiled dream.


Sweltering Helcyon fervour

fever afternoon’s bloom

with amorous desire

abandoned to a

bejewelled crown dripping

beeswax blossom

upon the surface of

Daphne’s blistered gown


Heartland’s kissed passion as

sapphire winged possession

steaming on petals

rain flared bloom.

Molten Topaz upon

love’s emerald blade

pulled skywards from

earth by Martian fire

reigning golden darts

upon heart’s filament

Erotic Eros burning

within green flame.
