The Butterfly 

Today is a good day
to leave her shell of shyness
Today is a good day
to come out
of her comforting cocoon

She went down
into the depths of darkness
Where she allowed death
to free her
from the entanglement
in the nets of mind
As she was made
to reach up
into the heights

She stands on the leaf of a tree
Let her translucent wings be dried
by the touch of a new wind
Rising perfectly
into imperfection

Reborn
Renewed
Refreshed

One
more breath
One
more moment
of not yet

Before she spreads
her wings
And takes flight

Towards
Her
Monarch

Dance Of Union

Take my hand
and dance
with me
To the rhythm
of our breath
Move with me
within
The harmony
of our
heartbeat

Fire stirs up
Skin to skin
Chest to chest
Bodies
merge
No barriers
left
In this dance
of union

And we dance
and we dance
And find
Stillness
in movement
Silence
in sounds
Closeness
in distance
Emptiness
in fullness

You in me
And
me in you

And
We dance
And
We dance

In a dance

That

never

ends.

Take my hand
And dance
with me

Embark On My Dreams 

Before the sun sets
Embark on my dreams
And sail with me
Towards undiscovered horizons
Ashore at deserted islands
Our love innocent and pure
As the first steps
on new land

Let us find a safe haven
In the world of make believe
We reinvent
the stories
Cocreate
what is ahead of us
Turn
the wheel of the year

Because if all falls apart
And the water is troubled
We’ll still have
this ship of our dreams

Untouched Roses

I wish you could see
The beauty of the roses
in the backyard
Even though
Your eyes might not see
them no more,
They keep on
blossoming

Roses
Untouched
by what once happened
between two hearts
That were afraid
of the thorns

Seen by my eyes
Their colour of deep pink red
Their seductive scent
That caress
the air
I breathe
Rose petals wide open
to receive
The light of your eyes
once more

Do you see
through my eyes
How much they have grown?

The Unfolding Story

The river at my feet
Water in motion
A story unfolding
Words give me wings
To see things
from above like flying
birds see
The water underneath

Just a simple love story
That flows through time
and space
About a man and
a woman,
A match made in heaven,
That came
across the rocks in the river
on earth
Though whatever happened
And wherever it may go
It is not the end yet
Water continues
to flow
Adam and Eve
Romeo and Juliet
All that came before
Whatever has been told
about them,
Whatever may be written
Their love beyond the story
can’t be caught
in words

Ocean Of Peace 

I float in my own ocean
An endless space
of peace
and love
Carried by the waves
Water that is deep
and calm
And I am filled with grace

Though then the thoughts arise:
‘What if the storm is real
and this is just a dream’
‘What if dark clouds will push the sun away’
‘What if the waters will be rough again
And I will sink in deep’

My fears arise and make
Ripples in the water
On the surface
Of my ocean

Then I hear
a voice from within:
‘It is up to you
Do you let the sharks come in
Do you make
them appear
or disappear’
I choose.

I fall back in my own ocean
This endless space
of peace
and love
Carried by the waves
Water that is deep
and calm
And no sharks any near

Divine Love

I didn’t look
for love
Though love found me
And put
a fire in my soul
I didn’t know
That I have always known
You
The mirror of
my soul

I fall down on my knees
in this holy house of love
Truth is blissful
Blessed and grateful
As veils of illusions
are pulled aside
I say a prayer
of naked words

My heart is a lighthouse
That brightly shines its light
So that you can find
your way home
To love
you
is the closest thing
to God

The Other Side Of The Shore

And I walked
along the coastline
Dreamt of
the other side
of the shore
Drew a heart
in the sand
Then the waves
took the heart
away

Now the sand
is just the sand
Though the ocean
holds the treasure
of the land
And takes it
all the way
to the other side
of the shore
That’s
where my heart is

Song Of My Heart 

When it is quiet at night
The world is asleep
and it’s dark all around
You lighten my dreams

You’re on
this song
of my heart

A fountain of sounds
that tenderly
caress
the silence

A playful melody
Orchestrated
by God’s angels

And on this journey
towards the dawn
I hold the light
inside
This song
of my heart

I Believe 

I believe
in a sun
that can turn
the land into gold
In white birds
that emerge
from the fog
In flowers
that arise
from the mud
In harmony
that can be heard
within chaos
In stars
that align
to what is destined
to be one
And put into place
what has fallen apart
How I believe
in us

Love Doves

Is it true
that today
heaven’s blue looks
even bluer than blue?
And the houses of white
are brighter than bright?
People who pass by
give me their smile
And palm trees
of greenest green
wave excitedly at me
Doves do a love dance
Then go up into the sky
I let me,
let you go
Birds just need
to fly

Let’s Get Lost

Let’s get lost 
in the tales of 
this town
Let’s get lost 
in the maze of
our hearts,
In the space 
outside 
the map
Without anything to expect 
We’ll be surprised 
all the time
So let’s get lost 
in the streets of
this town
In your arms 
I want to be found

Leaving Leaves

The Fall falls down
Heavy on my shoulders
Harvest moon that shines
Upon the lovers souls
Blessed is the Autumn wind
That takes us far from here
And blows us
into the comfort of our dreams

Soon you will leave this land
Like the leaves leave the tree
Though there is no goodbye
Always a welcome
To the one I hold dear

And we both know
Winter will knock at our doors
Cold will push us inside
But then let us warm us
With the promise of Spring
