"Dreams, my place of"
ko'u kauwahi ia moe'uhane
"an intimate conversation"
come, walk along the perimetre of the sun
close your eyes and daydream with me
what do you see? what do you dream?
look! can you touch the moonlit star?
reach... and then you can.
extend your fingers... and then you can.
do you feel her light glistening as she timidly
and then tenderly
kisses the darkening knight sky?
submitting her radiance to his ebony wine
like diamonds sewn onto the endless desert
travelling we are
whilst seated upon the most divinely chosen camel.
are you able to name the constellations?
look! how they delicately paven upon the knight's dreamy dress
touch one! touch two! make a wish, make two!
look at the planets dotted abound,
majestically placed spinning around.
do you see saturn complete with his rings?
or venus shrouded with her majestic night veil?
she doth possess that faint hue of blue,
does she not look lovely against those deep, rich cosmic waters?
close your eyes and caress her inviting still waters.
does her feminine charm caste a spell?
does she draw you in so you loose yourself?
and all sense of time and place?
is not her allure mesmerising and mind boggling?
cascade to your knees, you will!
let yourself drift and slowly enter her soul
lie down on this your magic carpet
be still and feel.
feel her presence surround you
like fields of fresh lavendar
then, feel her essence enter you
like a delicate purple butterfly
gliding across oceans of rippling lace.
slowly open your eyes and look around.
find the moon which is her satellite
and slide down his moonbeams.
take my hand and we shall walk across air;
then we shall burn in the fire until we blow away.
together we shall rise as dolphins of the pacific
and on occasion, we will listen to our earthly kapuna
as they impart their wise, lifelong secrets.
the cycle of life, may be seen
from any walk we take
upon the perimetre of the sun.
