Interchangeable

You can lend my voice
to say the words
you are unable to say

The flowers in your heart wait
to burst into sounds

Let me speak your unspoken,
write your unwritten

Just dance within my poem
Hum along with my song

Since my words are yours
as much as
your silence is mine

Heart Care

You don’t need to give
your heart away
You can keep it
Hold it in your hands
Caress it, cherish it
Protect it, care for it
As for new born baby chick
Velvety, vulnerable, breakable

And only when you’re ready
Slowly open your hands
And let your heart fly
Gently it will land
into mine

The Lion

Behind closed doors
the lion is locked
Its roar is silenced

In vibrating stillness
it builds up
its strength

Until the day
Justice will triumph
Truth will rule
Order restored

Until the day
the lion will break out
No doors
that can make
it stop

And without any doubt
the world will hear
its thundering roar

Love Of Many Lifetimes

Our love,
A tree of all times
Planted long time ago
Its base unshakable
Survived the turmoil
of ages in this town
Each grain tells another story
Holds another layer
Though its crown still grows
and its leaves renew
and blossom
This tree
Older than we are
Wiser than wise
Will even survive
us

Patience

I don’t need to look in the sky
to know the sun is still there
I don’t need to look for Spring
As it will come
In its own time,
at its own pace

Patiently
the bare rose bush
yet holds the new roses inside
As nature gives birth to its fruits
in its own way

What you are searching for
is searching for you

Hope

Morning glamour glows
The soothing of the dawn
King Sun rises out of the dark
and seats on heaven’s throne
While the angels scatter their magic
upon courageous believers

I pray across the ocean
May the waves of my new day
wash your nightly worries away
and cradle you into the realm of your dreams

The Call Of The Forest

Tall trees reach out with their peaks
majestically into the sky

A magpie couple cuddles
on their bench of branches

The sparrows sing their songs
in a play of call and answer

While wood nymphs appear
Giggling in between bare trees

As Autumn took their coat of leaves
Leaving them heart naked

I walk our footsteps
On a carpet of brown and green
Silent thoughts, open ears

My dear, hear!
how the forest calls for us

The Moon of March

Chasing clouds
Shadows gather
The dark shoots
its arrows of fear
and haunts hearts
that lack faith

The Moon of March
holds memories
of a cold and distant Winter

Though the night
carries the seed
of the day
Like the moon is lit by the sun
The light can only be seen
because there is darkness

Feet Off The Pedals

How the crows float in the sky
And the first crocus blooms
How Spring is on its way
The wind plays with my hair
While my bike takes me on a ride
down the hill

All is
Beyond what my hand can grasp,
my gaze can reach,
what doubts can turn around
Feet off the pedals
Heart off the mind
I exhale
When ties are loose
Hands are up
I don’t need to do anything but
loving you

Dancing City Lights

Lisbon, February 14th

The dark is a comfortable blanket
that covers me in sweetness
Words of life caress the streets
Everything here breathes poetry
At the other side of the riverbank
I see the city lights dancing
And I could dance along with them
all night long
In the knowing that
The sun will rise again
at its own perfect timing
That life’s tides come my way
the way they do
That this city follows
its own unshakeable rhythm
And as long as I follow mine
I will never be out of tune

Hunger

I swallow your words,
drunk
A hunger for more
of you
Thirsty for their liquid truth
here on my lips
Every word I taste
Eagerly, greedily
As if it is
the last word ever spoken
As if I know
we will be speechless
And
wordless worlds will
take over

©RoseGirl2018

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

©RoseGirl2018

It Was You

In the starry sky at night
In the light of the day
In the rays of rainbows
In de dawn and in the sunset
In still waters and in waves
In the songs I heard
The books I read
The movies I watched
In the eyes I met
Always
It was you
I looked for
Even long before I knew

©RoseGirl2018

Free Spirit

Free spirit leap
Wings of trust will catch you
Set your heart free
into the unknown

Free spirit fly
Do not turn around
The wind is at your back
You are surrounded
by the open space of Now

No ‘what ifs’
No ‘buts’
No ‘only if’
No ties
No regrets
No holding back

When it comes to love
Then love

Love like the sun shines in an
unclouded sky

Love like the full moon lightens
up a dark night

Love like you’ve never loved
before
For the sake of love
Because you love
Because you can
Because you will

Free spirit
leap,
fly,
love

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?

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
