LOVE POEM – LIEFDESGEDICHT


Hippocrene_Baur

 

 LIEFDESGEDICHT
stop mijn woorden in een fles
knoop mijn strofen aan een vlieger
hoog op de wind
voorbij de zee
aan de bron van Hippocrene
zal mijn gedicht de aarde vinden
en jou beminnen, lieve muze
al is het voor één nacht

LOVE POEM
put these words into a bottle
my verses bound to kite’s tail
high on the wind
beyond the sea
at the source of Hippocrene
my poem will touch earth
and love you, dear muse
if for a single night

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

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

HUMILIATION


HEARTLESS DEPORTATION

Deportation 2 Guinea ill men

recall the names

the hopeful faces

the silent whispers

the childish faith

forced to leave

unwelcome land

WAITING……


WAITING

wet eyes glancing blue
moon face dimple in water
still waiting for you
