Passing

 

 

My passing through the seasons,

through the strange towns

longing the purest light

heavily delight,

presence and sense

Memorize and memorize!

 

My passing through the colors,

through the hearts,

heavier than stones,

through the dreams

buried beneath the unseen ruse

Memorize and memorize!

 

My passing through the distance

at the impatient paces

through the darkest night

looking for a sip of lasting

Memorize and memorize!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Footprints

(in collaboration with Peter Heerings)

 

 

She followed the footsteps

of the one and only

It got her nowhere

so she decided to be the only one to fully trust

It opened her eyes

and changed her view

on how she saw things in life,

the living and all in between

She decided to float on the wind,

swirling and spinning arriving to a manor backyard

opened towards the sandy beach,

footprints again,

till washed away by the waves

one by one
