HOPE

" Between Black & Brown
Reflections of hope
In the midnight glow of a sky
sparkling with millions of little stars
glistening over a sea of potential "

 

~ ~ ~

STONES
" If the present is the future of yesterday,
A stone is time compressed into physical matter
Encapsulating the memories of its planet "

~ ~ ~

BALTIC SEA
" From the depth of space to the bottom of the (Baltic) Sea,
Pandora's Box awaits. "

~ ~ ~

SAGE
" The sage perfumes the air of its wisdom,
Protective and cleansing,
Fragrant and healing ... "

~ ~ ~

THE MAGNIFICENT VOID
" Enter the magnificent void
Through a fracture in time
A portal to the eternal
Eventually coming back to my temporary home
Awaiting for a new shell
for my ghost to inhabit
impatient for the next download
I let my soul float in the peaceful
yet complex perceived emptiness of the cosmos. "

~ ~ ~

INTERNAL UNIVERSE
" As above, so below.
The cosmos is just an external reflection of our inner universe:
Each cell a planet, Each atom a star "

~ ~ ~

DESERT
"Endless Desert
Wrinkled Soil
Waiting for the sky to cry
Tender tears of love
Hydrating life
Back into the cracks of time"

~ ~ ~

RUST

" Rust is the color of time "

SNOW

" Dressed in a coat of white stillness, 
the snow-covered landscape echoes in silence "

the snow-covered dunes echo in silence "

STERLING WAVES

" On a stormy day,
the horizon sheepishly appears
from behind a robe of clouds
and lays bare to agitated sterling waves
in a symphony of blues, greens and greys. "

~ ~ ~

WIND

" An invisible choreographer
Directing stalks of flowering flax to bend to its will
Caressing crops
With the tenderness of a mother’s hand
Golden rays flickering in the light
As the stems dance from left to right 
Like a row of ballerinas perfectly aligned
Waving their hands in the air
To the rhythm of the elements ...
The wind is not only music
But also the conductor of this moment "

~ ~ ~

 

GARBO

" I am the Garbo of the unknown."

~ ~ ~

SELF WORTH

"Struggling and often stuck
at the railroad crossing of my self worth,

I wish I to inspire

before I expire "

~ ~ ~

FOOL MOON

" Under the fool moon, I listen to my own tides. "

~ ~ ~

SILENCE

" Silence is a space

Where we integrate the melodies of life.

Like a breath of wisdom,

Sprouting from a temporary stillness

Allowing us to escape a momentary madness

Grounding us into the moment,

Creating an opening for the next resonance

As if preparing for the lyrics of our soul's grand entrance."

~ ~ ~

SILENCE

" Silence is the music of stillness "

~ ~ ~

POETRY

" Words were floating and rearranging in the air
until it rained poetry "

~ ~ ~
 

DESIGN

" Great design is about simplicity

so that life may shine around it."

~ ~ ~

BLACK

" An ode to black.
From Nordic sand,
To Icelandic volcanoes,
Lava black and river rocks,
Mirroring the darkness of the sky
Listening to the cosmos
For information that comes without words or images "

~ ~ ~
 

FUTURE

" So-called crazy ideas, thoughts and concepts,

Books and movies are the blueprints of our future(s)

Because the mind cannot tap into what does not exist

In the space time continuum of physics, quantum physics

and alternate universes;

The only bridge between imagination and reality is time. "

~ ~ ~

FORGIVENESS

" For & Give

Means twice away from me.

I free myself

I detach and let go

Not for you

But for me

I will never forget

And will never let you know

But I forgive you

Because you have contributed to the person I am today.

So Fuck you and Thank you! "

INNER STORM

" Above an ocean of tears,
A stormy sky
Reflecting my inner turmoil.
Clash of three elements
Finding their connection to one another,
Just as body mind spirit;
Air water sand
Waves of darkness
Crashing onto the shore of life
Waves of confusion
Memories, doubts and self reflection
I am struggling with my incarnation
My inner/hidden life
Foaming with painful emotions
Lingering before disappearing
Reabsorbed by the granules of time.
Bracing for the next cycle.
But now, I am ready to let go
And receive joy
As the waves wash away my sorrows
Just as a ray of sunshine
Breaking though the angry sky,
A beam of light vibrates
As the clouds of heaviness
That once weighted upon my heart
Make way for a new element
Longing for a new experience of self
A sense of harmony and inner peace.
Suddenly, in between the brakes, stillness
I can hear hope
I can taste the salt of happiness
And as the winds of tenderness caress my face
I am present
I am grounded
It is delightful
I am grateful. "

GRIEVING

Only time can soften the sharp edge of pain

RELUCTANT LANDING
I used to feel like a tourist in my body.

My soul reluctantly landing,

Observing life
From a distance, from behind my shell

As if peeking from behind a door

Looking through the key holes of my eyes.

Now, at 50, I feel like a citizen of my body.

My internal echo has lessened

I have landed.

Or have I?

BALANCE

“No one is all light or all dark,

but it is how we navigate our dark waters

that will determine whether we are

a beacon of light, a guiding star or just a mere reflection on the water, disappearing at the slightest undulation.”

It is ok to be a tourist in our own darkness,

but we must reside in our light!

WHO AM I

RIPE

A process is as personal as an individual thumbprint.  

The timing of that process is like the ripening of a fruit on the tree of life.  Though they are from the same tree, 

each fruit will ripen at a different rate 

and be ready for the picking in its own time.

~ ~ ~

CAPACITY

" Each person has their own level of capacity.

Capacity for pain or pleasure, failure or success, grief or happiness.

So who are we to judge them, not knowing the bigger picture.

Who are we to judge …. ourselves? " "

~ ~ ~

LONG DISTANCE

" If illusions represent the edge of reality,

You remain a delicious ‘one’

spun from my heart’s wishful imagination.

Your written words go through me

and make my soul tingle,

but fade away so quickly

I had to hijack a few for this little ditty.

You feel like a statue made out of thin air …

A delicious invisible

even if I have to imagine what you look like,

feel like, taste like …

I want more!

Yet how can I grasp this mysterious hologram that is you.

Rather, I’d like you to tattoo me with your intentions,

Even if just written – at this time

I want to savor those words

because they come from you.

I want to feel you, embrace you, touch you:

Allowing you to infuse my body and soul with your sensual thoughts

leading me to burst with sensations … of possibilities.

I miss you even though we’ve never met.

I want to reach out, but there is nothing to hold …

except my dreams of you …

and a possible us.

Who knows?

But one day …

I will be looking for more substance …

And I hope you can become my sustenance. "
