THE RIVER

THE RIVER

Imperturbable rhythm
the heart rises up and down
the coolness breathes
sleek your wrinkles

hidden fragile
deep and dark
the silence of your soul
you are my dove
my cry my devil
you untamable river

I grab your hand
cherish your shores
lay my head
gently in the sand

tears shining
deep and dark
the silence of your soul
you are my dove
my cry my devil
you untamable river

look at me
elusive sweetheart
take me to eternity
still my poignant longing

wordless prayer
deep and dark
the silence of your soul
you are my dove
my cry my devil
you untamable river

I drown in you
let me embrace
close my eyes
in your lap

elves sing
deep and dark
the silence of your soul
you are my dove
my cry my devil
you untamable river

SHE WAITS


Young woman at window

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

          SHE WAITS

          shy
          pure and untouched
          she waits
          uncertain
          what comes
          will happen

FIRE INSIDE


lovers caught in kiss

FIRE INSIDE

touch of fingertips

wet on swollen lips

eyes smile asking more

and that fire inside

urge to fly higher

DARK WATER II


DARK WATER II
(poem in haiku form)

Emily-Fine-photo

dark water mirrors
your face gently inviting
I must have been blind

took the other hand
could not resist the sweet stuff
crazy selfish moon

diamonds in her eyes
teased to climb forbidden hills
thought this was heaven

and she played with me
while snowwhite took me higher
wild days and wild nights

the bottles broken
landed hard in empty shell
our love exhausted

tried to find way home
where peaceful lakes are calling
and the rivers flow

dark water mirrors
your face gently inviting
I must have been blind

SABBATH

Shabbat
is that you
behind the door
that colours
this grey emptiness
with your glowing face

LIFE A DREAM NEARBY


LIFE A DREAM NEARBY

 IMG_1204
some things only happen
in dreams
some eyes do not see
what happens
nearby

these hands
touch the lines of age
in your face
follow the curves
of the time

hear the whisper
from moistened lips
words that are no words
only a meaning
for those who listen

a breath is just a breath
hanging in the air
you embrace
the single moment
we are one

thoughts merge
in the soul
of endless memories
in the hands
of a child

peace of mind
without structure
nor form of birth
created outside
forthcoming by itself

bells raise their voice
countless tones
float in the air
low the sounds
the spirits high

life strides away
on bows of light
and a smile
meets the stars
nearby

Jewish micropoem


P1040767

violin moans crystal tears

violin sings small lullabies

do not cry little one

show me your smile

stars of hope arise
