New things

In Uncategorized on January 28, 2012 at 3:37 pm

Dear, beloved reader,
I’m moving on to new things.
And I’m hoping you will join me…
In a new time of poetry,
This time with sometimes something more
Like art
and recipes
and thoughts
And photos
that can’t help bursting through my mind
and out to you.

please, come along with me?

Hello, Spring

In Uncategorized on May 12, 2011 at 9:34 pm

Hello, Spring,
Here are you finally,
Green and sun-kissed
Sprouting through the snow

Hello, Spring,
Winter is long gone,
And all our fears
Are left out in the cold.

Arise, my love,
Winter is over and gone
The time for dancing has come
– at last.

Arise, my dove,
The morning has dawned.
The darkness and dread
– have past.

Hello, Spring,
Here are you finally
Sweet and song-drenched
Budding through the grey.

Hello, Spring
Winter has grown great wings
And with it, all our tears
have flown away.

Arise, my love,
Winter is over and gone
The time for dancing has come
– at last

Arise, my love,
Beloved and beautiful one
I will give you my love
In the fresh green grass.

spring!

Bright
Green
Blue
New
Life
See!
Taste!
Spring
rings in anticipation – thrilling, hushing;
gurgling deep in our throats like a river.

Sunrise – Brightness
Are you there?
Am I sleeping in my darkness
Unaware?

Walk with me down the mountain briskly
Happily laughing, ever alive.
Walk with me in the morning, my sweetness,
And stand by my side.

You, dear, who make the sky your sketchpad,
You, love, who fill the world with light –
Multi-colored, hidden, resplendence –
Revealing yourself in song-breaths of life.

And dance with me through these valleys, my strong one,
Be to me shelter and courage, delight.
And when I’ve run long and my feet are broken.
Carry me, darling; soar with me high.

Spring
Come into my open hands
And blossom

wither and fade
wither and fade
old and heavy yesterday
pass with shade

look!
it is morning!

the Sun has recompensed the land.

The days are growing longer.
The time is growing shorter.
I will see you soon –
I’m writing poetry on everything.

oblivious

we were oblivious,
giggling under the covers,
that we would watch our dear ones die,
that we would fall in love.

highrise

In Uncategorized on September 24, 2010 at 8:57 pm

Meet me on the highrise
Where the cool, dark night
Smooths itself over the sky like
egyptian cotton
like oil paint
like deep blue ink.

Let me sink into your warmth.

Meet me on the highrise
Where the architecture of your eyes
Constructs it’s dreams and plans
In constellations
In bloodveins
Across your strengthened hands
Playing my thoughts like a timpani

And drenching me like rain.
