Flying Words

Silent is my pen
Words are flying around
Like humming bees
Moving the air
Like a light summer breeze
Playful and cheerful as butterflies
I am unable to catch them
Blank is the page in front of me

And perhaps
These words are not to be written
But only to be heard from within
And then I am the blank space
In which they create
Their own poetry
Without needing a pen, a page
Even without needing me



  1. I just wanted to thank you for your visit RoseGirl and for following me. Erik introduced me to you, I believe and I’m happy for the connection. I look forward to reading more of your inspirational poems.

    1. Thank you, Marie! Happy to connect with you too! I read about you on your blog and we have a lot in common (regarding violence and bringing more empathy and compassion into the world). I look forward to connecting and reading more.

    2. Did you also write about your experiences? I couldn’t find it on your blog (I have the WordPress app on my phone). Could you send me some links? I would like to read it.
      Thanks again for your kind words!

      1. Yes I have written about my experiences, but in an indirect way. I have not actually made any reference to myself, but I think it’s clear where the words are coming from. It is mostly in the form of prose-poetry. The best thing I suggest is to scroll through my archives and you’ll see them. My latest one was ‘When the Rain Came’, another was ‘Alice, Milton and Oscar: Making Sense of it All’ and ‘Florence’, as well as ‘Secrets’. If you do have trouble finding them, please get back to me and I’ll be happy to send links. I hope that’s ok? 🙂
        Thanks for your interest, RoseGirl.

      2. I will definitely check it out. I am busy with preparing a talk about compassion now (I work as a counselor/psychologist). But in a few days I’ll have more time and space to read it 😊

      3. Thank you, Marie! Do you know non violent communication from Marshall Rosenberg? I talked about that and how we can deal with conflicts in a compassionate way and make the world a better place for everyone.
