Düsseldorf

Düsseldorf is the capital city of the region NRW (Nordrhein-Westfahlen), in Germany.
It is also the residence from the local government, Der Landtag.
The modern building in what the politicians decide about what happens in our area, is named Landtag.

Close to the Medienhafen,

in a wonderful area at the Rhine.  Lots of things to see and photograph!

And my probably most favorite photo album, ‚da mix‘  🙂

 

A wonderful morning with a great photographer and friend as company.  Not bad for a Saturday!

Dragon for Genesis

Spying
While your eyes are bursting
From the biting, poisoned smoke
That slowly fills your prisonroom

Waiting
For your moment to come

THere is no escape
Our of this nightmare
Because it is real
The heat that you feel

Steaming smoke
Takes your breath away
You not seem to notice it
Focussed at the only way out

There will be no one
Who unlocks your prison cell
What else can you do
Than waiting for that moment
On what your spirit leaves your body
When there is no pain anymore

A last cough is what you hear
There is no way out
And you do not fear

Words by me

Travelling high

Let me travel high
Let you be free again
Away from the chains
Away from where you can not escape

Let me fly through the sky
With the unending view
Let me fly
Upon the dreams, that we once knew

You may say, it is a dream
And I tell you, it is is not
This is it, I have it seen
The sky is the limit an unendless spot

Let us travel high
Let us fly, into the blue
Feeling free again
Where ther is
just me and you

Let me hear the waves in my ear
Let me step on foreign sand

Let me look over the endless water
Where waves wash away our sorrows and pain
Where we can live again

Let me drown in the brightness of the sun
Where the seaguls catch their fish
Let it all be as it is

Let the world turn around
Let us not forget, where we are from
Let us feel what we once found

Where we broke out of our shell
And started to breath

Take me back again
Where our life began
Where we will return
Where our separated souls will unite again

Xans christmas

It is here
THe most wonderful time of the year
While we are dreaming from a christmas what is white
The stars twinkle in the night

Our wishes are spoken, but unseen
In your eyes, I read your dream
I whisper to you
May your dream come true

Baby, it is cold outside
And the stars, they shine so bright
This year, again, there will be no snow
But a christmas tree with lights that glow

Together wit the stars in de dark
The candles inside give a spark
Many ways to say or do
My wish is simply, from me to you

Merry christmas, happy new year
Now go inside my dear
Because outside it is chilly
without a coat it is so silly!

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

Step into another world
Allow yourself another vision
High in the sky
Reflect your ambition

What will be in your eye
You will know it, in a view
At the world below
Go, with the flow

Immense the wheel shows up
When we stand in line
Look up to the sky
Thrilled, with your hand in mine

The cache of glass opens its door
We step in, a bit nervous
But safe, together
Our tempararily prison
It doesn’t matter

Slowly we get higher
So this is called a magnificent view
I feel small

Trees, not bigger then matches
People in the size of a needle
They all seem the same
No one is important at all

I look down at them
As a stranger
I want out but then again
The wheel catches us, for another round

Flying around in circles
The wind moves our cabin
The steel rattling
I start sweating
The eye of vision
Is a failed mission

I tap at the door
There we go, one round more
I can’t take it any longer
The wind in our jail is getting stronger

I can’t tell you, what I feel
I hammer at the glass
Please let me back, to where I was
I want to get out of this horrible mass of steel

When we step out
I am relieved, and shout
I will never return in the wheel
I belong on earth, where life is real

People say it is christmas
From the windows you can tell
Lovely lights, Glittering balls
The candles and the Glühwein smell
 
People say it is christmas
The shops invite us in
Buy more, it will bring you happines
Credit cards allowed, you win
 
People say it is christmas
I wonder who believes it
The fest of light turned around
In a party of gifts for who achieved it
 
People say it is christmas
For a few days, they believe in Santa again
We watch the trees around the world
The light blinds our eyes, until when
 
People say it is christmas
And I am wondering why
The stress of cooking, the stress of looking
What more we need to buy
 
People sing that it is christmas
Freddie sings it is for just one day
People rush and fight for presents
In long queues they go out to pray
 
People sing about Christmas
And while they are collecting more then they need
They struggle over the legs of human
Who invisible sit in the steet

A happy Christmas, to you all
At least we wish you had it, big or small
We hope that your dreams did all come true
And that you ate our friends, happily too
 
We were the loosers, of this year
Christmas is over, we are still standing here
We love to be happy, as well
But, poor we, we did not sell
 
We were okay, we sure did taste
But we will end in the bin of waste
It is simply not fair
They are eaten, and we are still here
 
Our wrapping is exactly like from our brothers
The chocolate tastes identic to the others
Without the wrapping, we look all the same
Or is that the problem, are we naked too lame
 
There is no hope for us, nothing funnies
But don’t think that we leave so fast
In a few months there will be a return of our cast
Proudly presenting the easter bunnies

Where do you come from
Where do you go
Questions
Not all answers we know

We all travel at the river
Some boats travel together
Sometimes we go, with the flow

Sunny days
Where we wish we could stay
While we know
It won’t last forever

Our boat will flow at the river
We see the dark clouds approaching
Let’s hide for the rain
It won’t last forever
Even when it seems so

We will follow the streem
Our waves, sooner or later
Will end in the sea
Time will learn, we shall see

I know
Nothing really matters
As long as you are there
For I love to be with you
Forever

And another year is almost over
And I am left (still) sober
The bubbles wait for the new year

I don’t want to talk about it
We shalll see what it brings
Looking forward with hope in the hearts
Looking back, to the remarkable paths

So many wishes, are going around
People that a whole year were not found
All the sudden do appear
Wishing something beautiful, for the year

I reflect, what was good, what will be better
Important memories wrapped in my heart
The rest, does not really matter

The clock ticks the hours away
And I have nothing to say
Who knows me, knows the wishes I dream
Will some come true?

Time will tell
Let the corks shoot away
Worries and pain
Let the bubbles surround you
Wit love and happines, again

I cheer for what’s another year
