HaFri Poetry January 2019

We got the world 
In our own hands
For the time that we live

Our goal should be
To make it beautiful
So that it is worth to give

To our beloved ones
Children, dear friends 
Make sure the circle will be long

Respect nature, love another 
Be grateful, to the earth 
Let her live, healthy and strong

03.01.2019

Be strong
Be so strong, that you dare to show your weaknes
Be so strong, that you are grateful for help

Be strong
Have the courage to say, that it is enough
Dare to care for the world around you

Be good
Be good for nature, for who you care
For this world, that it is here

Fight for your love
It is all around
Together we are strong

3 Kings came, from far
To see the new born King
They did follow a star
And were convinced that it should bring them
To that important place

I do believe in fairy tales
They make me smile, for all
Because they lead to a peaceful place
Where you don’t beat your head
Against the wall

03.01.2019

And just before I close my eyes
We stepped into another day
Thinking about what was
Not too much about what will come

Counting the blessings, they were plenty, I realize
I am lucky, to be okay
And when the future, transforms into the past
I know that we have not been wrong

08.01.2018


If there is one thing, I learned from life
(and there surely is much more)
It is that smiling helps to survive
No matter how much you feel sore

You can fight the darkness, with looking for light
But to black, grey already looks bright
You can not wish the too hot weather
And mother nature does not matter

So it is up to you, what to do
Looking up, or staying blue
Feeling sad, for what you miss
Or being happy for what is

Choose wise and treat yourself nice
Enjoy winter and eat an ice
Eat a steak, just for lunch 
Count your blessings, they are a bunch!

I sometimes have moments
That I am sitting at the couch
And then, I all the sudden
Forget where it is about

I feel sorry for myself
(even when I know better)
I feel lonely,with no one around
I shed some teears, what is all what matters

The tears blind my soul
I feel alone
I can not feel your hand at my shoulder
I can not describe it much better
But it gets more, now that I grow older

Those moments in sadness are not so good
They have strong effect at my mood
And, what happens almost every time
Then someone offers me a tissue
And all the sudden I feel fine#

Nothing needs to change
I am still sitting there, and look into the grey
But, when I turn my head
I see someone, at a couch, next to me
I can not see him pretty well
But I think, he is just the same

I stand up, I whistle a song
And, while I wipe my tears
I know, that the show must go on.

They told me,
That the rain should fall
That it should disturb it all

They told me
It should be dark and grey
Not much brightnes, should bring the day

They told me
I better should stay home
Far away from the cold
I should keep warm
With something warm to hold ☕

I did not listen to the advice
Dressed up warm and nice
Out I went, into the wood
No rain came down, 
All was good

I did walk on
Through the wind
And when the shadows were tight
I all the sudden
Walked in the light

Street Art, Wall Painting

In the 70s and 80s, a lot of cities were having the spot on un-used buildings, what were occupied by people who needed homes.

Some of those ‚occupations‘  ended successfully, other remarkable.
Remarkable successfull was the action to save a street in Düsseldorf.

The Kiefern Straße was saved from project developers, and became an open monument for (street) art and more.

We visited on a very cold day. Our cameras were getting wet a bit, but they survived.

Afterwards we were taking a little pre-taste of the upcoming christmas markets.

Poetry February 2012

Confuzzled

I think left and walk to the right
Everyone laughs when I talk about serious stuff tonight
I peal potatoes and realize
That I was intending to cook some rice

I found no butter in the fridge
Again to the shop, I got finally this
I walk out after that I had paid
hello, your donout, the cashier said..

I want to let you read a thing
The wrong page again is showing
I admit I am confused
But my heart has its natural boost

One thing I did learn all through the time
The chaos thing is a part of mine
And if you doubt if you want to handle this, or can
I just feel sorry for you, man

Poetry November 2018

Colour your dreams
Drink the milk of paradise

And when things are dark

Paint them like a firework
Enjoy the „plop“ of the champagne cork

Food for thought

There is no time to waste
There is no time to waste with hate and fights

We need love
For the environment,
For ourselves
For the future

Now

Rembering
Who are gone
And who we will not forget
The silent pain in our heart

Stepping forwards
With silent steps
Daylight dreaming
A visible tear

How I wish you were here

The little bird wakes me up
Brings me back into reality
Another sign
From you, to me

Don’t be afraid
I still am here
All the sudden
I feel you so near

My heart cheers up
While no one can see
The emotions that rush through me

Your task is done, you fly away, clever
And I live on
Never forever

Nobody knows
How many years ago
Your boat brought you here

Silently it slowed down
And ended, at our place
Surrounded with nothing
Then the sound of the river

No bird was singing
When you stepped out
Refused my arm
Head up, full charm

You walked along us
The silence was so loud
It went chill from only one cloud

You needed no guide
To bring you to the well
Where you sat down
And closed your eyes

Young and old
did gather around you
And, like magic
No one entered the circle around you

You were not lost
And we found you

When it went dark
We went to our homes
This night we did not close the curtains
And barely our eyes

Next morning you were gone
And your boat is still there

We rememer that night
When the hair of our children
Became forever white

I wish a world without walls
A world, where evrry stone is used to build places of comfort.
A place to hide and share
A place, of what I can tell you,
Come in, it is safe and warm
Where we can enjoy our tea, with a smile
Because we prefer a coffee

Look up to the bright side
Find the blue sky

Get up, raise your hands
Wipe away the cold wet sand

Live your life
With ups and down
Survive with a frown

Look up, find the blue
It shines for me and you

© HaFri 14.11.2018

And the night falls down
Like every night
The light goes out
We look for a place to rest

And when we wake up
Everythng is the same
As it was before

It gets light again
The birds start singing
The world continues singing

The sky will look blue
The clouds might be grey
The rain, wet as before
The sea rolls ashore

Nothing has changed
When we wake up again
And still
Nothing is the same anymore
As that it was
The day before

Power to all our friends
And music, that never ends
Colours, that set you free
Sweet dreams, for you and me

Wearing my hat
Laying in bed
Looking for sleep
💜 a tiny sheep
At almost 1 o’clock
I can not longer rock

Wide awake tonight
With the moon in sight
My eyes are open
And my dream
Wakes me up, with a scream

Been there, done that
Let me sleep a bit on that
Wake me up, when the nightmare is gone
Bring on the dreams, that make me strong

The path is your goal
Your steps are the reason
And when the signs are confusing
It might be because of the season

Slowly the darkness fades away
Transforming the night into a new day
I raise my head, longing to see
What today will bring for me

I am grateful, for where I live
And I love, that I can give
It is wonderful that you are there
And even better that you care

Thank you, for walking with me, into the light
Together with you
Everything will be all right

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

09 10 2018

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

11 10 2018

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

Make a wish
Share a kiss
Enjoy life as it is

Dreaming of
The one you love
Close your eyes
And realize

That someone cares for you
Just like you do
Dream and smile
Keep it a while

Give it time to share

Because, one momrnt, you will see
That it has a reason, and has to be

© HaFri 27 10 2018

After the night
We turn
Back to the light
As it always will be

Smile
Drink coffee
Or if you prefer
Sip your tea
Be open for happiness
May your day be bright

Invisible waves travel
With the speed of light

No matter how fast the news goes around
Tomorrow it is old

HaFri Poetry August 2018

Step the stones
Conquer your fear
Go slow
But don’t stand still

Look careful, before you take your step
But do it, with faith
You know the path ain’t easy to go
With every step, the destination comes near

Walk forward
Because you can, shall and will

When people tell, that you did wrong
It is okay to defend yourself

When it happens often
That people tell you
You did things that are not okay
Then try to do better

Don’t blame others
For your mistakes

You can only gain respect
When you respect the other

Be the one
That you want others to be

22 08 2018

Be you

When everything around you is green
Be yellow
When everybody is floating together
Jump out

Be a flower between the leaves

You are too beautiful
To hide it
Amaze others
By showing the wonderful you

Give them the chance
To tell you
How wonderful you are

24 08 2018

When you go to sleep
Take your dreams with you
Don’t worry about
If they might come true

Just hug them gentle
Live them tight
Let their pleasure
Guide your night

Give your dreams
A lesure treat
Believe in what they tell
Somehow
It all will be well

Van Gogh, Field with Ploughman, late August 1889. Oil on canvas, 49 x 62 cm. Private collection.

 

Amazing colours
So much more beautiful
Than that I did ever see

I am grateful
For who dares to share
The amazing world
That is hidden there

The dreams that you let see
Will
Forever
Colour me

Farewell summer
It seems you never should end
Then you rushed away
Leaving the knispring leaves
Under my knispring bones

There was no time to say goodbye
Just as to you, my friend
No one knows really why
It so suddenly needed to end

We can’t turn back the clock
Or foresee the weather
It all is written in the stars
No other choice than let her

Enjoy the moment
Don’t run away
It will come in time
Just wait and see
Don’t be afraid for the rain or darkness
We are not alone,
You and me

Love your life
Live and give
Be beautiful, because you are
Let your heart smile through your eyes
And catch the twinkling star

Blood Moon

I love space.  I love planets, and I love the moon

Photographing them, however, is not that easy.  Stars and planets are far away, and usually seen only in the dark, as little stars.

This Friday evening,  there was a moon eclipse. The phenomena with it, blood moon, should turn the moon red.  The eclipse lasted about 2 hours, the longest eclipse in the century.  Together with the ‚blood moon‘,  we should be able to see the red planet Mars, close to it.

I made a few photos, enjoy them.  Take note that it was my first attempt, the photos are not cropped, and the moon was not showing up bright, but covering in a damp atmoshpere, so that the photos are not all as sharp as I wished.

We were not the only ones, that took this summernight to watch‘

And finally, almost unexpected, the moon showed up, in all her
beauty!

Hafri Poetry June 2018

You seem to swim so lonely
But I am always nearby
No matter where you go
I spot you, in my eye

Swim into the big world
It is all so new for you
You will find out good and bad
Just like I still do

And when the world is sad
Return to the water
Fill it with your tears
Fill it with your fears

Swim in troubled water
And hold your head up
Feel the bubbles under your skin
Drink the world, that you float within

Be happy, and be strong
Be weak, but not too long
If you can, share the water
You will be loved for that, now ant later

I look at you
As long as you alow me to
I promise, I will be there
Even if you do not care

04 06 2018

Walking in the park, feeling free
Just my thoughts and me
No questions in my head
Just free feelings instead

I stood still, to watch the flower
I did not expect it
And I could not neglect it
Your wings catched my eye

I stood stil, amazed by your flight
Spread your wings, fly away
My eyes were following you
And saw you turning … around the corner

You kept on flying
And turning back to me
As if you had to be sure
That I did see

It was amazing, just me and you
And the questions, that were not there
All the sudden became an answer

I closed my eyes,
And when I opened them again
You were there
I am grateful, for your sign

Let me give
Let us live
Let it be okay
You are only one breath away

One day, long ago
All that I did know
Was, that there is a God in the sky
Who ruled the world, who was the reason why
 
My mum told me so, also it had to be true
There was no reason to doubt, why should I do
I grew up, went to church, did sing a song
My world was safe, nothing could go wrong
 
Until that day, that I did wonder about
How it is possible, that we were ruled from above the clouds
Because, if there is a God, somewhere
Why it seems he never does care
 
Those days, I hear more children cry
It is louder, then in many ages
Dear lord, tell me why
Do you allow children to be held in caches
 
Why do you let people families split
Why you created hate, without stopping it
Why do you send us such dark clouds
That are a few things, where I worry about
 
Yes, you hear my words of grieve
It could be a prayer, if I did still believe
I still believe in the goodness of man
I still believe in love, because we can
 
I refuse to think, that you allow this cruel
I refuse to think, that you sent those horrible tool
If I still did, I should pray
Please, send the evil away
 
Still, it is this world where we live together
So, life goes on, and life does mater
Instead of telling the others to change right now
I have to do it myself, somehow
 
I say no to hate, and agression
I will love my friends, with gentle passion
I will not accept, when people cry
I will gain courage, when I look to the sky
 
No, it is not a dream, where I am talking of
We can change this world together,
when we start to love
19 06 2017

Live
Love
Do it ,
Before it is too late

Smile, be happy
There is no time to hate

If I say I love you
You can love me too

Make your world
A happy world
And I will be there

20 06 2018

When the world is bad
When people do not care
Be better
Spread love and share

When children cry
Give them comfort
Dont allow borders
Between people

Love can’t be destroyed
Hate shall be replaced with love

Refuse to live in fear
Resist the darkness
Our future is here
Make it better

Tannenbusch

A trip with Hildegard, to the mini zoo Tannenbusch.

Spring is coming, but the winter was cold and long, this year.

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
