It Is Not What It Seems


A still image on the surface
Like nothing happens
and all is hopelessly the same

But underneath
It moves and whirls,
heats and waves,
streams, vibrates
What cannot be seen
though can be felt

Under Winter’s death
Spring grows, tingles
And brings the earth in motion

Silence that asks for patience,
that asks for trust


Trusting Love

I didn’t trust love
I wanted to control the river,
wanted to hold back or push the waters

I built dams, threw stones in it
And digged the sand out
to let the river change direction
I worked and acted
I did everything
to prevent me from being still

I thought I needed to earn
I needed to prove
And worked even harder
For me to deserve
the love I knew it was mine
but didn’t dare to own

Often I thought
the river wasn’t even real
And just a mirage in my mind
That could be taken away
from me anytime
And because I didn’t trust love
I didn’t trust you, I didn’t trust me

But now, oh beautiful river,
I don’t want to
control you any longer
Please flow
and I will trust
That true love will find its way
on its own always
to where it belongs



The white mill stands
like a white church
among the clouds

It connects
heaven and earth
Its reflection caught
in the water

Its wings will be turned
like a wheel of fortune
in the wind
By the gentle hands of angels

Change and movement
will come soon
Stay strong
and have faith

Free Falling

Shaking rocks
Rolling thunder
This place here is not
to linger anymore

I am free falling
No mask that gives hold
A heart that is clothed in

Heaven will you catch me
Gravity will you lead me
into deeper grounds of faith


When Heaven Meets Earth

Wherever you are
Just look at the sky
And you will find me

The sun crosses worlds
The moon lightens shadows
Stars foresee
What we may not see
When heaven meets earth

Just look up
From wherever you are
All my wishes are out there
will rain on us
If you only just believe

Wherever you are
Wherever I am
Look into you
I look into me
And we will find
our universe


Knight Of The Heart

She raises her sword
Her heart is on fire
She holds the love
And claimes her own life

She loves the love
That is sacred
Trusts God to bring
What is meant to be
She liberates herself
From the layers
Of all that won’t serve her
She is only armed
With her naked truth

She had her battles
And learnt how to choose
Which one to fight
Which to surrender
The cause of the heart
Is never to lose

She can’t go back to sleep
As she has already awoken
The point of no return
She rides her horse
Carries the torch
And knows
What is in the heart
Cannot be broken



You go with me
Wherever I am
You move me
Wherever I go

The horizon
Is out of sight
White stripes
on the road
That point
to the unknown

I am
I only have
My hands to touch
My ears to hear
My heart to feel

You who have
touched me
Your song I hear
Your heart that beats
within me

And then
I know
I sense
I breathe
Trust has got my back
My feet go straight
To the horizon
in my mind
And I just take
A leap of faith
