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

Cloud Dancers

The clouds are ours
We color the sky
I paint with words
You paint with melodies
A sparkling symphony
of life and love

We make fire in the sky
The heavens are quaking
Hear the gods laughing
Apollo and Aphrodite
are at our side

We are cloud dancers
In heaven’s temple
in the realm of
Always and Everlasting

Know Thyself 

I’ve seen you before
So many times
The same gaze
The same eyes
A heart that rhymes
with mine

When I hold you dear
inside of me
Then how could I be
without you

The external is
nothing less than
The internal
mirror image

To know myself
Is to know you

Too Big For A Poem

What to do
with a love
that is too big
for a poem?

Should I adjust
the poem
Or should I make
the love fit?

No,
I’ll leave
the poem the poem
I’ll leave
the love the love
And then I’ll leave
you with it

Sweet Words

Let my words
come close to you
They are my hands,
my lips,
my breath
They tenderly caress
your face
Embed you in
pink satin
A soft
whispering
on your skin

Just a few sweet words
for you
To taste me
To soothe you
To kiss
the bitterness
away

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

©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

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

©RoseGirl2017

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

Grounded In Love

The heavens open up
I flow with the water
Tears merge with raindrops

You’re so close
Though I cannot touch you
I see you within
Though you’re not here

Wounds are aching
A heart is moving
I am whirling around
With the wind

I ground myself in love
Earth myself in heaven
And in the eye of the storm
I am at peace

©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

Fiercely And Fearlessly 

Now the storm is raging
And lightning splits
The dark sky
Wild dreams hunt
The ones
Who are without sleep

I have my cave
To shelter
The pole star
to guide me
A fire
to warm me
In this cold night

And I wait
the storm
To pass
The sun to rise
Free are the ones
Who embrace
Whatever may come

What else could
I do
What more would
Be left
Now
Than fiercely
And fearlessly
Loving you

©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

Blindfolded 

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
blindfolded 
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

©RoseGirl2017

Run Away My Love

I thought of you
Again of you
Always it is you
My thoughts hold on to
Only you
And I know
I have to let you go now
To still have you

So run away my love
Like my thoughts
run away with you
Don’t look back
Only forward
I won’t go after you
Run for the hills
Run for the clouds
As far as you need
Just find your way
Back to me

So run now my love
And while you run
I’ll hold the space
I’ll hold the love
For you to return

©RoseGirl2017

Wall Of Silence

You drew the line
A wall of silence
Built up by words
That have never been said
I sent airplanes to cross
Though they have been crashed
Into this wall of silence
Now the land is divided
And we weed our own fields
Silence speaks
More than words could express
Truth lies on both sides
Of this wall of silence
As we walk our paths
on the same green grass
