Poetry April

Wörter – Ich

manchmal möchte ich ein Schifflein sein
Und mit dem WInd in den Rücken
Mich die Freiheit entzücken

Ertrinken in der hellen Luft
Atmen des Meeres Duft

Aber meistens führt meine Reise
Nicht weiter als mich verlieben
In wunderschöne Bilderbeweisen

What is in a name?
A reason to live?
A moment to give?

We can’t foresee how long life is given to us
And when we give life, to our children
We do not know, how long their lives might lost

Is it the hand from above?
Do you call it nature?
Or is it faith. just as it is?

What’s in a lifetime
What do we need
What do we get

We can’t turn back the clock
And when the time passes by
With every second
We come closer


Today I look up to the sky
And you know why
Just like then, the sky is so blue
Just like then, I talk to you

In a language, you could not understand
As always, you know what I meant

What is there to say?
I hope you are okay
I am fine, but, yes, I miss you
In my thoughts, I smile and kiss you

Thank you for the signs you sent
Life goes on, after the end


One day
When the sky is blue

I will look, again, at you
And,when I hold your hand
We enjoy the grey to fade away

We will be happy
That the sky is blue

I will look into your beautiful eyes
I might not find words, when we relize
That this is what is we both are up to

We shall wake up
When the sky is blue

Until that day
We will walk our way
Together, we share the pain
In the darkness, our light will remain

We will carry on
We will make each other strong

The clouds shall all be faced
When we are looking for the blue
I wish it so much
And most of all
I wish it for you

For you, Sabine

Render by Petra Vos
Words by me (HaFri)

I was walking blind
THere was nothing I could find

I was running from A to B
Looking for what I could not see

I had to be in time
I could not drop the line
Running faster, but I was too late
Hurrying more, without finding the gate

I went on, but did not know
Where my feet were letting me go
I could not stop it
I could not drop it
I had the will to carry on
with the show

Then, all out of the blue
All the sudden, there was you
When I saw you, in a flash
I knew what to do, in a dash
I ran behind you, but you were so fast
I don’t know how many hours it last

Then you stuopped
And while you took my breath away
You said, well hun, you should not run
Because you can get everything, if you are willing to stay

I opened my eyes, was bathing in sweat
You were gone
But your words I will never forget

Goodbye, April Lady

I won’t regret another month to be over
It was not bad, it could be better
It was an easy come
easy go
Thank you for letting me in
I faced you with a grin
Now you leave, and there we have it
And I’ve seen, many worlds
And I ever see will see again
What’s another year
No more for you to fear
Goodbye April, another month is over
And all I am, is left sober

Tour de France London Copyright Gabrielle StubbsIn next painting Gabrielle was inspired by the  Tour de France, what started a few years ago in London
This year it starts in Düsseldorf, reason enough for me to dig up some inspiration

Where sport and art reunite

Are the tires pumped up well
And is the bike an ahh and ooh
I hope you are ready for it
Because soon you will have to go

It is done with the time to relax
The hair should be fine
The legs properly waxed
The countdown goes, it is about time

Colourful teams
Supporters behind the fense
Sunshades set
All catched by the camera lense

We waited for it, in endure
But now we are ready to go
Up to France we go
Ready for the ‚grand departure‘

The grand parade is ready to go
What will happen, no one really knows
We dive under in Le Tour’s segragation
Up to Paris, the final destination

Words by HaFri Poetry

Let your dream come true
Dream about the fish
Or anything else that you wish

THere is not much to need
A bit of fantasy, a bit of feed
Don’t hesitate any longer
Dream away, from passion or hunger

Dream your dreams, they belong to you
And even when they can’t all come true
Your happy moment will be there
In your sleep, with only you to care

Dream a little dream
Dream your little lies
Maybe they come true
The red cat might read it in your eyes

Listening to the voice

(painting by Gabrielle Gubbs)

Today I switched the radio on
As in a dayly routine
I was not thinking what would come
Just building up my daily screen

I took my coffee, and around
I was comfort by the familiar sound
The radio spread its usual noise
And then I realized it was your voice

I stopped for a moment, from sipping my tea
And started to listen what you were telling me
I still could not understand your words
However, I dreamt away at your familiar chords

I do not even know your name
But all the sudden, the magic was here
Sprankling your sound through my ears
And I knew
that nothing, anymore, will be the same

(painting by Gabrielle Stubbs)

Today I crow for victory
In a special way
We celebrate French Liberty
It is Bastille Day

So much about the history
In the books you can read it
And for who looks close to life today
Will know, that hiistory repeated

We must be alert, to fight the shadow
We can not bow for fear and hate
Unite, stand up and hold the tricolour
It is freedom for what we fight

And when the La Marseillaise plays
We next can sing our own countries glory
Resist, don’t let the darkness win
Love will bring us all victory

Jerusalem 2017

Jerusalem 2017

My heart cries
With every shot
My heart cries
For too many blood

No matter who you are
No matter at what side of the wall
We are all God’s people
We do not differ so much at all

SO much hate, human create
That we can not trust each other
Some may say, far away
But it is too close, not to bother

There is no solution in fight
There is no wrong, because there is no right
Only humanity is real
The tears that I feel

My heart cries
For the beautiful people
Who are blind
And of who their calculating leaders
Tell, tell that there is no solution to find

That is a burtol lie
Because when we start to understand eachother
Then the differens do not bother
And all who cares
are you and I

Polar Plastic

A painting by Gabrielle Stubbs.

At the end of another year
We do look back
And can relect
To things far, or near

There are things that are fantastic
Other things are scaring me
Like the polution of the sea
And the climate at the antartic

More and more people open their eyes
And realize
that something has to change, now
If it is not already too late, somehow

We can change it, if we want
But we should work together, hand in hand
There is no time to waste
If we want to save the human race

Think with what you are living for
Buy what you need, and not much more
A polar bear can live fantastic
when it is not surrounded by plastic

So our plea, from us to you
Save the world
Be careful on what we have
and what you do

Words by me (HaFri)

(Painting by Gabrielle Wood duck under the willow)

Do you realize
How special you are, swiming there
The way you look, the colours you wear

I do not say the others look less
But you look different, I guess
Even if only this time of year

The sun shines, it is beautiful weather
I am amazed by your wonderful feather
You glide through te water, without a sound
Under the willow, you turn around

Showing your beauty
It seems, just for me
I love this intimate moment
Colorful under the wheeping willow

The magic happens, without any sound
And I wished, I could stay a bit longer around
