Union Within

I am the strong woman
And I am a shy girl
I am optimistic
and can drown in deep despair
I am courageous and open
I am closed off
and shaken with fear
I am adventurous, sociable
And I am a loner

I always thought that
to become whole within me
All the time I need to be
that strong, expressive woman
And make the other pieces of me
disappear
But then I realized,
to be whole is to accept and acknowledge
all those different pieces
to unite them within me
and don’t see them separated

And maybe I am all, maybe I am none
I am the presence behind it
that observes and writes about this

I am the poetess
and I am my poetry
I am your beloved
and I am the poet
My beloved is in me

(As within, so without)

No Defense Needed

Such a relief and freedom
to be like a wild flower
People look at it
and may say that it is ugly or beautiful
One may say its colour is red,
the other may call it pink
But the wild flower is just the wild flower
And doesn’t feel the need to defend itself
It let people have their opinions
and their projections
while it continues to dance in the wind

She Understood

She always wanted people to understand her
And if they didn’t and only judged her
She tried even harder to be understood
By opening up herself,
by explaining her heart
which led to more hurt
Until she decided to let go
of wanting those people to understand her
And instead, to understand herself
so thoroughly,
that she doesn’t need anyone else
no more to be understood

Honour Your Treasures

A little girl sits in the sand
She holds a treasure in her hand
So dear to her heart
Someone comes who
tries to get it from her
and manipulates,
plays on her feelings,
tries to force her, screams,
and throws with judgements

Another person comes
who says:
‘Your beautiful gem,
my dear, just hold it
as long as you need’

With whom would the girl
feel safe to share the beauty
of her treasure?

Tame The Wild Emotions

And the wild emotions come,
Stubborn and overwhelming,
Like wild bulls in the arena
of your inner space
They bring turmoil,
sadness and despair
as their wild legs whirl up
a raging inner sandstorm
that troubles the eyes
and makes everything unclear

But do not jump on them
For they will take you on a ride
leaving you wounded and
defeated in the end
But take a step back
breathe and observe,
see what triggered them

Feel…..

Connect to your wounded self
Heal it
And release

Make the wild bulls your friends
that guide you
to find more inner peace

How The Worm Transformed

Once there was a worm
Living in the dark places
in the womb
of mother earth
It was like he was digging
his own grave
As he hid himself
in sadness and fear

Mother earth who saw
the lonesome worm struggle,
one day asked him:
‘Why are so unhappy,
my dear one?’

The worm said:
‘I have this dream
of being a songbird
to fly free in the clear open sky
But I am just a worm,
buried in heaviness
for no one to see’

Mother Earth replied:
‘My dear worm, first learn
to embrace yourself
for who you are
See your own value
Learn to embrace your dark parts
And then believe in your light’

And the worm took
these words to his heart
He learned more and more
How he as a worm helped to transmute the earth
And how out of the darkness
new flowers could grow

And one day he took the risk
He made his way up to the light
And at that moment
a beautiful songbird flew over
That made a dive,
swallowed the worm
and took flight
The dream and the dreamer
became one

Resilience

She fell many times
Battled through rain,
thunder and dark nights
She struggled through mud
She faced the demons
without and within
Often she drowns
in rivers of tears

The rose lost many petals
Storms could hit her
And heavy weather
could bring her down
But always she bounced
back to the sun
As her greatest strength
lies in her heart
Her greatest strength
is love

The Union Of Venus And Mars

Venus was a beautiful goddess
who encompassed love,
desire and victory
She was the rose of Mars

And Mars, her true love,
was the god of masculinity
He was a sacred warrior
as he fought his battles
throughout the universe

And Venus taught Mars
to fight his battles
not with his mind
but with his heart

Mars taught Venus
to stand up for herself
and be the warrior of
their love

And then one day
Venus called her warrior home
As she longed for her man
and peace needed to be restored
in heaven and on earth

And after a long journey
Mars returned to his beloved
In her arms
he found true victory

And they made love to each other
The heavens were shaking
The stars were shining brightly
As they merged
in the glory of love

And then out of their union
Their love child,
the beautiful goddess Harmonia
was born
Because when two lovers
of true love reunite
They bring love,
peace and harmony
to the world

Never Give Away Your Own Authority

And in the forest the bird was searching
For the answers to the
Why’s, the how and the when
She encountered several birds
that told her their opinions

And she thought:
‘They know better
As that one is bigger than me
And that one is older’
But in fact they never told her
more than what she already knew inside

And then there were birds
that asked her to sing
songs for them
And as she liked to please,
to have harmony,
or she thought, she owed them something
She often said ‘yes’
Although there was a ‘no’ inside

There were also birds
that wanted to take over
her place in the open sky
They said:
If you don’t like to fly there,
Just let us do it for you

She noticed
that those other birds
all had pieces of her
And she had allowed it
She had given away her authority

Until one day she decided
to call back all those pieces
She would not give herself away
like that no more
She would stand in her own authority
She would fully trust and follow
her own heart song

Even if that would mean
she needed to take flight
without the others,
without support, without any likes
and on her own
For she knew in the end she always has
herself, her beloved and God
by her side

Rebalancing

The rain fell
And left a layer of water
on the ice
It’s like I skate
on a mirror
I see myself reflected
when I look down
Slippery is the ice
And a few times
I almost fall

I get scared
Fear hits me very hard
My body is uptight
And I almost don’t dare
to move anymore

But I came to dance
I came to glide
So I breathe
And rebalance
My focus on my body

Through the fear I move
I trust myself to balance
I breathe
And then I start to dance
again

Know

Know you have the arms of love
wrapped around you
and you are safe

Know you’re in each of my prayers
You have your place in each of my poems
My words are built around you
They are your pillars,
Your floor to walk on,
when it feels like all your foundation
is gone

Know that even though
you may think
you don’t know it anymore,
Your heart knows
And more you don’t need to know

The Lost Sheep

She was not like the other sheep
For she had a sensitive heart,
a poetic walk and dreamy eyes
Although she always tried
to fit into the flock
She never truly belonged

The other sheep that all dashed along
in the same direction,
She mostly went in the opposite

She then thought that she was lost
And alone she wandered in the world
She hoped for the shepherd
to leave his flock
to find the one that is lost

But instead the shepherd
sent her her counterpart
that is as dreamy and
sensitive as she is
And through him
she could find herself

I Want You To Dream

Lyrics of the song (Video of the song below)

A kiss on your forehead
My hands hold your face
My heart holds you in love
Until the end of days

Now close your eyes
You’re gonna fly
High up and far
On the wings of love

‘Cause I want you to dream,
to dream, to dream, to dream
Dream yourself free
From the monsters in your head
From the demons and the fears
From your worries and your past

And then, you will land
Here next to me

And if your heart feels heavy
And its weights pulls you down
Then remember you are light
For love you were born

‘Cause I want you to dream,
to dream, to dream, to dream
Dream yourself free
From the monsters in your head
From the demons and the fears
From your worries and your past

And then, you will land
Here next to me

Small Bird

Small bird in the big field
Hopping shyly around
Do you know
The green grass is all yours
And you have your wings
to fly?
The wind will catch
The earth will nourish
Never underestimate
the strength of the small

The Tale Of The Rising Star

Once there was a tiny little star
That hid itself in the dark sky
And made itself invisible
As it was afraid of its own light

The other stars asked:
Why are you preventing us
from seeing your treasure
How can you truly appreciate
the diamonds we are
If you are withholding
your own full shine?

Your light will help us to shine brighter
Together we’ll connect
the dots in this painting of life
And we’ll hold our place
in divine order
Illuminate the sky
As it was written in the stars

When the tiny little star
heard the words
of its sisters and brothers
And of its purpose to shine
It decided to take heaven’s stage

When the earthlings saw
the rising star above
They applauded
They named it the Pole star
And let it guide their ways

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

Arcadia

Let me tell you
about Arcadia
A landscape as wide
as the eye
can reach
With clear blue skies
as high as the mind
can think
The land where
wild roses grow
Their hearts
always open
Fields of red, yellow
purple and green

Will you come to me
here in Arcadia
This space in between
Where veils to
other worlds are thin
And dreams are realer than real
Where words and sounds
are being created
Where songs originated
and poems spring
from within
And where everything
is just as perfect
as it may seem

Will you stay with me
here in Arcadia
As king and queen
in this palace
on fertile ground
This source of creation
Where life awakens
To eyes that truly
wish to see

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

©RoseGirl2018

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

©RoseGirl2017

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

©RoseGirl2017

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

Cup Of Love 

I am on the other side of the river bank
And I hold my cup of love
up high
Precious nectar of the heart
that flows
Shimmering divine
I’d like to offer it to you
But I came from far
and I’m so tired and thirsty
now
So let me drink it first
Then please choose
If you’d like to drink
from this sacred cup of mine
If your heart is open
to receive
‘Cause this cup of deepest love
is for the braves
Who are willing to lose
everything they once believed in
And maybe
You too would like to share
your cup with me
And unblind me
with your truth
We only have a bridge to cross
So let us meet halfway
Let us be drunk by love
Drunk by our truth

©RoseGirl2017

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
Stardust
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

If She Were A Tree

Leaves fall down
The wind gives wings
And
gently brings
them to the ground

The tree
That stands
Firmly rooted
in the earth
Branches reach
Up into the sky
Moved
By the rhythm
Of the seasons

If she were a tree
Then he would be her sun
Rays of purest light
Would feed her
She would blossom
Bear the fruits with pride
And then
let them go,
let them fly down
with the wind,
merge with the earth
And let it again
feed her

©RoseGirl2017

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

©RoseGirl2017

Inspiration

She is still with me: Inspiration. She gently breathes the words into me. This white angel, does she come from heaven or from hell?
And now she even keeps me out of my sleep.

I ask her to leave, I don’t want her near me here. I tell her to go bother someone else.
This heart drown in pain doesn’t want to swim to the surface no more.
But she is still there, she smiles and invites me into her space.

I put my hands over my ears.
I don’t want to hear the words she blows to me.
I close my eyes.
I don’t want to see her flowing source of light.
I cover my heart.
I don’t want to feel how her touch has opened it.
But even then she is still there.

I tell her I can’t do it. I can’t do what she asks of me.
But she only smiles and then slowly whispers in my ear:

Write… just write
