HaFri Poetry October 2018

How do I survive

My mind is free, and full of good
So many rules tell me what I should
And,what not
In case I forgot

Freedom is an illusion
We are chained at rules
We are ruled from fools

Chaos is all around
It is easily to be found

Rules and signs, lead me in any direction
But not closer to my goal
Are they really made to transform the chaos in perfection
Or does it leads us in a black hole

Break free from rueles, survive
Tear them down
Love the chaos
It is the story of my life

When the night wents to sleep
When the day wakes up

My footsteps
Are the only sound
How much I wish you around

Whilst the light gets more
And the darkness disappear
I count my steps
And the hours
Until you are here

The cold of the night
Shivers at my skin
The colours of the sky
Take my breath away
And I feel, a tiny little bit

like in heaven

Never throw yourself away
Be brave, but not a fool
Glow into the night
Fight for your right

Be a star
For someone, far
Fade away the darkness
Be who you are

Never befriend with violence or hate
Live for love,
love and be great

Slowly the night
Transfers into light

With every foodstep that I make
I trust the bridge
Looking forward to my coffee
And to what is left
In the fridge

When friends
Don’t talk anymore

Because they are trapped
By thoughts that lead away
From your mutual goals

When friends
Don’t listen anymore

While they raised their glasses
And drank the poisoned wine
Dream on, my friend, we won’t hurt you

When I do not give up
Believing in myself

I do not want, to drink your wine
Even not, when you turn your head away

When you fall
What will happen sooner then you think
I will be there
To catch you

And, at the same time
I continue to walk my way
Different roads
Not like before

May the pain be less
Then I fear
May the white power of love
Always be here

Another beautiful summerday and another great photo shoot with Markus.

Detail.. I took a half full battery, and an empty one with me. A part of the photos are made with my mobile phone.  I leave it to you to guess.

Promenadekonzert NGK 2018

Neuss in August.

That means a LOT of music.

One of the highlights, at the sunday before ‚Schützenfest‘,  is the Promenade Konzert der NGK (Neusser Grenadier Korps)

No music included, you should have been there!

Des Neussers Freud und Lust

Wenn die Ernte ist vorüber,
rauh der Wind durch Stoppeln fährt,
wenn die Tage immer trüber
und die Schwalb nach Süden kehrt:

Jauchzend schallt’s dann in der Rund‘,
jauchzend hallt’s von Mund zu Mund:
Kirmes, Kirmes, du des Neussers Freud und Lust,
Kirmes, Kirmes, du des Neussers Freud und Lust
Freud und Lust!

Horch! Es tönen Jubellieder,
Trommeln rasseln durch die Straß‘,
und Musik erklinget wieder,
Klarinett und Flöt und Baß.

Jauchzend schallt’s …

Steht im Winde Fahnen flattern
Waffen glänzen in der Sonn‘.
Wenn die Büchsen lustig knattern,
schwellt des Neussers Herz vor Wonn‘.

Jauchzend schallt’s …

Auf der Wiese, welches Leben!
Bunt bewimpelt jedes Zelt,
und der Schützen einzig Streben,
dass der letzte Splitter fällt.

Jauchzend schallt’s …

In den Straßen steht die Menge
Fröhlich wogen auf und ab.
Und der Glocken hehre Klänge
Hallen hoch vom Turm herab.

Jauchzend schallt’s …

Sind die Kirmestag‘ vorüber,
ist der Freude Rausch vorbei,
wenn wir Alltagsmenschen wieder,
bleibt uns Erinn’rung treu!

Jauchzend schallt’s dann in der Rund‘,
jauchzend hallt’s von Mund zu Mund:
Kirmes, Kirmes, du des Neussers Freud und Lust,
Kirmes, Kirmes, du des Neussers Freud und Lust
Freud und Lust!

Kaiserswerth 2018

What to do when the temperature rises to about 35 degrees in the shadow?  (95F).

What about taking a trip to Kaiserswerth, to a tiny little square in Düsseldorf, where the water is near, the history is plenty and the places to eat and drink are richly in the shadow?

Enjoy the photos

Lost Places Alexius Krankenhausgelände

Today we went to visit an old psychiatric hospital. Soon it will be replaced for new, and until then it is a lost place. Where you can feel the memories. Where you can imagine the patients havind lived.  Especially while I know from my work experiences how it is, working in such hospitals.

Walk with me through the old Alexius Krankenhaus.

Das St.-Alexius-Krankenhaus ist ein ehemaliges Krankenhaus am Alexianerplatz 1 im Augustinusviertel in Neuss. Träger waren die Neusser Alexianer.

Hombroich 2018

Museeninsel Hombroich is one of the most wonderful places to photograph in our area.

Weather conditions, warm and hot,  bright blue sky.
