Calming the beast

The rain burst through
a behemoth of sound
bringing with it a chill to soak
the bones and wither the souls
of mortal beings
with their rushes and sighs
doorslams and cries
shivers, angst, tears and fears …

The green ones drink
in silence
for this is their time, their silent hour

for nature’s silence is the beautiful sound
of life, her heartbeat, her gift.

They know how to calm the behemoth

While we run and hide
they embrace the storm.

Open arms

A new decade is upon us
It is ready to open its arms
to those who welcome it
with love.

Give without expectations
Feel with honesty
Live without
Seek within
Be brave once in a while

And love
because without it
the clock stops here.

Embrace

Nothing is permanent
Nothing is real
Nothing surrounds us
The nothing can’t feel

Be happy with you
Embrace all you are
Step out of the nothing
And you’ll sure go far

Permanent is nothing
Real is untrue
Your surroundings are here
Make your real come true
