Ferry Crossing

Iguana eyes
Catch ecstatic glow
Of pale blue
Meteorite shower.

Serenading the harmonic
Under current
Of the heart beat
Reverberating surf.

Pelicans dance
On the shifting delicate patterns
Of storm tossed ocean,

Blown in on passive tides
From mythical islands and lost worlds
Submerged beneath vanished Atlantis.

Forked tongue lightening
Electric neon blue
Eclipse of sky scrape sky line.

Feet up
Relax mode
Gaze straight
Into the eye of the needle
While crazed yachtsmen
Zigzag, tack and project dreamtime mirages
Across old world new world
Iron horse and iron harbour bridge.

Poem Extracts

"Yet blankly stare at this empty glass.
Watch wide eye yellow full moon vanish in the cloud
As the sun cocooned in that cosmic void
Searches for that solitary sunflower
Stranded in that vast ocean of life
Seeks out fresh pastures and galaxies
Happy to brush against spinning hand carved Buddhist wheels of life."
