Lost Moors

People want to measure:
moors in hectares,
canals in meters,
peat in blocks,
barges in convoys.

In separating rectilinear
we are masters:
strips, plots,
rivers, ditches.

And once in a while
nature helps us
and divides
the landscape.
Already winding.

— Geert de Kockere

Nights Apart

 

thinking of your kisses

I lay my hand upon your pillow

and dream myself into your arms

 

❤ for my V-man

Rainbow Hues

When mind is full
But stomach empty
Mindfulness
Becomes a burden

When mind is empty
And tummy full
Mind your own business
Don’t become a burden

Don’t let contempt
Shade our world in red
Don’t let compassion and respect
Be principles of the past

Trust in yourself
Believe in others
And color through cultures
In rainbow hues

Gentle Sentinels


When life’s too much
and tears at the fabric
of your soul
take a breath
and slow down
to the heartbeat of the trees
Feel their blood
dripping gently
through bole and limb
Feel their roots
digging down deep
into Mother Earth
stretching out
to brothers, to sisters
Feel their arms
reach for the skies
gently rocking
to the playful wind
among their fingers
the bark tough but alive
Ground your feet
plant your toes
surrender your weary thoughts
to these gentle sentinels
Feel one
become one
and let go
All life is connected
and offers freely
draw strength
from us all

Angel

Today an Angel was born
in hope transformed
from woman and daughter
to memories

Hollow arms, empty
crave for her warmth
they stretch, defeated
in search of her presence

Patches of laughter
echo through silence
in light and shadow
her energy is captured

Forever young
Forever loved
Forever
Angel
