Sing in the Storm


Like the endless sea
life ripples forward
then flows back
usually calm
sometimes wild
out of hand
but always on the move.
Invisible threat from the deep
in balance with nurturing sunlight
You can not turn the tide
control or hold it
so come along
surprise – yourself and others
dance in the rain
and sing in the storm!

Autumn perspective

Sometimes things change, when you look at them from a different perspective.

Happy mushroom hunt! 🍄

Requiem for a mosquito

Why are you this close,
mrs. mosquito?
Don’t you have any friends
to cuddle up to?
Could you at least try
to keep your nose
out of other people’s business?
Because you’re getting
under my skin
and in my blood.

And yet so shy,
dear mosquito,
that you only dare to sing
when it’s dark,
whether solo,
or in a choir.
Please tell me why
you only appear
at night?
Did you perhaps
do something
that cannot see
the light of day?

I beg of you,
let me behold
your graceful dance
in all her glory.
Step into the spotlight
with your slim body
and elegant limbs.
Show your face
and I will worship you
up close.

For now alas, I fear,
I have,
my dear,
full of adoration
with my ovation
clapped you
to death.

I’m so sorry,
that sucks!


The last bit was inspired by the comment of the talented Rick Dijs on the Dutch version of this silly poem.
