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

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

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

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

I am fine, but, yes, I miss you

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 (c) by Petra Vos

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

Hafri Poetry March 2018

There is no end
After the last ending
There is no victory after the win
There is a shadow where the sun shines
Every end means a new begin

The darkness hides you for the light
Step out, don’t worry, it is all right
There might be a reason to survive
There might be a reason to be alive

When it looks like it is over
Look better, and look within
Becase there is no end, aofter the last ending
It is the road to a new begin

04 03 2017

Hello, world
A new day is breaking
Love your life
Because today is the day

Hello you,
The sun is awakening
Let it reflect
And smile through you

Don’t be afraid
Enjoy the birds sing
There is no darkness
The sky will be blue

Don’t join the hate
Love is so much better
The world is wonderful
And you are okay

Sometimes I wish
I could spread my wings
Fly high above the treeJust spreading my feathers
In all kind of weather
Looking down to what I see

When I fy high
It all looks so small
And huge problems
Seem not so big at all

The higher I fly
The more I see
Leaving it all behind
For the time to be

When I could jump, and fly from here
I should know where to go to
I fly right away to you

To you, who leads me up
And I would offer my wings
In case you could not fly yourself
I should lift you,up to everything

We should fly as high
Where no one can see
Having our world for ourselves
Just you and me

To Sabine

Follow your dreams
They bubble before your eyes
Grab them

Let the bubble reach your hands
Let it poof
Free the air that is hidden
Let the water splash at your nose

What is holding you back?

Choose your life
Not all bubbles need to be catched
And if one explodes
Before it is time

Then think
That, maybe
Maybe this bubble
Was not meant to be

Find a bubble
They are everywhere

HaFri Poetry February

Weird it is, but I do
Happy birtdhay dad, to you
I normally ignore it, or forget
This time not, I just had to do that

Maybe it is, because I am getting older too
That I dig in memories more often, and find you
I can’t say much, without being rude
So I keep silent, because I should

Still, we remain being bound in blood
Just like my children to me, and that is good
We will turn to eachother in the end
No matter when it is

So, happy birthday in heaven
I hope you celebrate in style
Knowing you, you will do well
Some people will like you, for a while

And even when I deny it
When I look into the mirror
No matter how I do
I always see a part of you

My mixed memories remain forever
Are reflecting behind the closed door
And, even when I never admit it
I miss you, every year
A little bit more

The water comes
Following its road
Let it flow

When the rain fills the river
When the water takes
Let it go

One day the sun will shine again
The tears from heaven will get dry
Yes, we know

The water takes, and gives it back
Different, maybe, then expected
But it will show

The grass will be greener than before
We will walk hand in hand
along the yet hidden meddows
And they will grow

The water comes
On it’s way to the sea
And when it goes
It remains the memory

It will be spring again
It will be spring againThe flowers will bring showers
Of colour, for many hours
It will be spring again
It will be spring again
Still it is dark and freezing
My nose is cold and sneezing
It will be spring againIt will be spring again
The sun will shine again
Your heart will sing and then
It will be spring againIt will be spring again
It will bring hope and light
new life will be borne, one night
And It will be spring againIt will be spring again
I can write it in my words
Can compose some bright new chords
It will be spring againDon’t give up, you will be fine
Let your hand rest into mine
And live our life, because we can
My love
One day
It will be spring again

Good morning, are you ready
Ready for a brand new day
Or do you, just like me
Just want to dream on

Make it hot, make it strong

Good morning
Am I asleep, or already awake
I look at you
Am I dreaming?

Admire, require, desire

Stumbling to the kitchen
No tea for me
Make it strong, make it hot
Make my dream come true
You got it, and I want it, too

Desire, hot as fire, admire

Your smell
I dwell
Expell

Your temptation, sensation
And I
I can’t take it any longer
I want you, hotter, stronger

Be my luck
Be my hot shot
in a mug

(Painting by Gabrielle Stubbs)

Colourful 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

07 02 2018

I am not the same as you
I might feel pink, while you feel blue

We have our colours,
we wear our power
We are amazing, every hour

Together we create
A colourful palette
That make this world
Worth to live at

You are not less
Or more then me
You are just beautiful
Go to look and see

Don’t let rules or law take you down
You are a pearl
On the earth its crown

Love will never walk away
No matter what flavour
You are really okay

14.02.2018

Here I sit and listen
To the sound of the falling water
Drop by drop
The water returns

The sun transfers the water into pearls
I listen to their sound
How much I love this intimate moments
All alone, where I can not be found

My worries slightly slip away
The water clears my mind
I count my blessings
With every sound that reaches my ear

Oh, how I wish you were here

And when I open my eyes
I realize
That, no matter where I go
You are at my side

And when the reality flows back again
I know stronger then ever before
That everything will be all right

Time to go,
I stand up and rise
Until we meet again
In our small paradise

In stormy weather
When the cold takes your breath away
Stay warm
And breath

When time tackles you
Stiffnes in the bones
Walk on
Just a bit slower

When you think you are useless
And nobody loves you
Then remember
This nobody

When the water is cold
And you wonder if you can survive
Return to the water
Where it began, the source of life

Just at the moment
That the darknes makes you feel lost
Open your eyes
And find, who loves you the most

Don’t worry too much
Spent not too long with tears
Because there is a moment
On what the darkness disappears

25-02-2018

When the sun
Shines over the icey water
And I look at the silvery spot

In the silence of the water
Where light and life unite
I know
I love you
More then alot

25-02-2018

Reflections
Wrapped in glass

They disappear
When I walk away

Memories
In a magical mirror

They will grow
When time passes by

And when I turn the ball
The memories
Will reflect the same
