Double Dutch

I want to say hello to you
But I don’t know how to do
Deutsch is not hetzelfde als Dutch
And that is confusing mij so very much

Wenn ich schreibe, das ich bleibe
Can I say, that I will stay
Aber in Holland soll ich dann staan
And iF I go, dann kann ich gaan

It all is so verschrikkelijk complicated für mich
Then English and American, sind auch noch unterschiedlich
Zo vaak fehlen mir de woorden
And can I again een taal vermoorden

You see the problem, what shall I do
I better shut up, and halte meine Klappe toe
Oe is dutch, and bedeuted Uh
But the English do say oooh

And when I want Käse, dan wil ik kaas
Did you aver try to translate sinterklaas?
Yes, I am going slightly mad
And mad in Germanan is pronounced as Mett

Mett is een gehaktbal, pretty much
It is so complicated, to be double dutch
Even when I want my drink
I have to think

Because a bear is not a bear
What they mean to say is bier
Now that sounds easy, for all of us
I drink to that, I love being Double Dutch


When the light is young
When we are feeling strong
Then walk with me

When the grass is green
And the leaves drop shadows between
Then walk with me

When you are feeling cold
When you are feeling old
Then walk with me

When you think you are alone
When your heart is not from stone
You can walk with me

Leave your footprints next to me
Open up for the power
Hug a tree


When white meets black
And black greets white
Both enjoying the beutiful weather

When someone tells you are beautiful
And you reply with, so are you
Then nothing really matters

When differences fade away
And you can be yourself, unique
Then your harmony will speak

When it shimmers, after a sunny day
And we slowly prepare for the night
Remember, that the darkness will fade away
Our dreams will bring us
back to the light


The winter was strong
Long, we did long for spring
Mother nature made her own plan
Not because she has to, but because she can

Sunshine came, unexpected
Nature could not neglecl it
Flowers exploded
The darkness eroded

Hello sunshine, please be mine
Breathing spring, blossoms swollen
Sneezing loud, thanks to the pollen
Enjoying the light with a smile
It has been a while

Now the blossoms touch the water
Spring seems to have jumped into summerly heat
Reflections become memories for later
Who knows, where the water may lead


Blüten fliessen in den Fluss
Weil das Leben weitergehen muss
Ich schaue ins blaue herein
Geniesse den milden Sonnenschein

Die Blätter sind noch so grün
Das Wasser ist schon so hell
Erinnerungen an das Jetzt
Verlieren wir nicht so schnell


It’s your turn
Make a move, don’t run
What step will you take
Is it sea, or is it lake
Move it
It’s your turn
When you can’t take the black
Then you should play the white
Take care that you won’t burn
Every move you make
Every breath you take
They will be watching you
Make your move,make them play
You can do it,
It’s your turn
Take a risk
Choose it
Don’t be afraid to loose it
Because, only when you use it
Life will give you the chance
To glance
Play well
I will be next to you
Yes, we can do
More then ever
it is your turn

Play me a song
When I walk through the wood
Open up my memories
About when life was just a joyful mood

Let the words back into my mind
Bring the memories back to life
When the nights were short
And the power easy to find

Play your song
Let me hold you
Share the memories of yesterday
With the trees, that I just talked to

Invisible post

I do not see you
So I am not there
Maybe you say, you can
But I don’t care

I do not see you
So you can not tell me
What to do
Or what to share

My world is pretty small
I do not see anything, at all
I can do whatever I want
You will see,
I just cant

If you tell me
To open my eyes
Please, first take away
The towel of lies

Wake me up
When you are ready for me
Open my eyes
When you think I should see

17 05 2018

Turn the light
Let the spot on you
You are worth it

Switch on the light
Be amazed of what looks to you
When you dare to see

Let it be light
Be beautiful, be true
Let the colours shine in

Be the light
Let your fantasy through
Dare to be different

See the light
May it enlighten your darkness
Sparkling away the night

22 05 2018

Good morning, how are you?
It’s good to see you here

I wish you a wonderful Friday
And from some of you
I wished you were here

We can’t always get what we want
We can’t always win, or loose
So make the best if today, somehow
Smile, and be happy

24 05 2018

How I looked forward
To see you again
How happy I was
When you were there

More powerful
More coourful
Then ever

How wonderful you did head
Against the rain
The stormy nights
How much you enlightened the day

More beautiful
More enjoyable
Then ever

And now
you are gone again
For a while

And I
look forward
To when you show up again

The sign
That the dark and cold days
Never stay forever

Does she stay
Is she on her way
Only she knows
Where she goes

Checking her hair, it looks okay
Should she go, or should she stay
Thoughtful are her eyes
About a plan, or about lies

The door is closed
She is out into the blue
What she needs the most
She won’t reveal it to you

There is no turning back
Only the butterflies will stay
She and the bird will find their way
She escapes from the black

Kiss the past goodbye
Wait, or go
When the birds stops singing
Then she will finally know

Poetry April

Foto –Inge Baldo
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 (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

29 04 2018

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

09 03 2018

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

Poetry January 2018

The inner ring

Maybe you know my inner ring
Maybe you know who is living within
The inner ring is so close to me
It is the place where I love to be
Just a handful of people will be there
And if you are, you shall be aware
It is where I love and live
It is where I dare to giveThe inner ring, so cozy and nice
I name it Saturn’s paradise
When you are there, play in the orange snow
Feel loved, live, you never need to goOnly me knows where it is found
You know when it is all around
Shining at the planet, warm and light
The peaceful place, where no one fightsWhen I look close, to that inner ring
I see some holes there within
They are from people, that did just go
The hardest part of love is to let them goThe holes are painful and very real
There is no day that I do not feel
The pain, the loss, and not saying farewellSo close, no matter how far
We will meet again
No matter where you are
Then the holes in the ring will be filled again


And all the sudden
It took your breath away
And even while we did expect it
The silence came louder than we could say
As if the truth was so long neglected
Nevermore you will hear the sound
For evermore it will be around
Unforgettable in your heart
Saying goodbye, did not tear us apart
It is just different, as that we expected
Memories from long ago
all the sudden come alive
Don’t ask me why, because I know
It is our next step, and we shall survive
The empty place, the tear in my face
The show will go on
they say
You are so strong
They say
You, and I, we know so much better

The churchbells will play
People will gather, and pray
There will be an open door

Marrages, baptised babies
A last farewell
The mission bell

How many tears have been shed
How many fears about life or death
No more songs will be heard
The church, permanently disturbed

The bricks that were brought together
Do not really matter
The glass in the windows, long ago gone
Just like the people
To who those place, once did belong

Machines will flatten the towers
And then dig for the hidden powers
All what reminds to life
Has no chance, to survive

Later the machines will come
To dig for dirty energy
Coal explotation is so very wrong
In the end
There will be no one to see

Global warming is as long denied
Until we all are cooked or fried

Walk to the lake

Painting by Margaret
Words by me

I look through the windows and what do I see
The sun is smiling today to me
Goodbye to the days that were so grey
Hello Mister blue sky, let’s get on our way

As long as the rain takes a break
It is our time, to walk to the lake
Watching the water, the birds in the sky
Smell the air, and you do know why

People, walking hand in hand
Who let the dogs out, together we stand
Away from the darkness, back in realitiy
Breathing again, it is blasphemy

Surrounded by silence, we take step by step
Today’s afternoon, we will need no nap
I look to the nature that seems to awake
And I promise myself
More walks to the lake

Hochwasser Januar

When everyone stands in the row
Be different!
when everyone looks into one direction
Look into the other way
When everyone wants to sit on top
Then there is a lot of freedom at the ground
Where the food, and the good, can be found

10 01 2018

There is a light in the sky
It is coming from so far
Shining in the darkest nights

Looking to the million stars
I all the sudden feel so small
Counting all the lights

And I imagine that they are sheep
Helping to make me
Peacefully sleep

11 01 2018

It is so hard to see you go
Every time again
You will return, yes, I know
But to say goodbye gives so much pain

How much I should love to say
It is all right, if you stay
You not need to get around
All is fine, safe and sound

It is so hard to wave goodbye
Yes, I know what I have to do
Words and wishes shall become reality
I step around in my own shoe

I can not describe what I feel, or show
It is just not fair
I wish you were here
The hardest part of love, is to let you go

12 01 2018



Come walk with me
Over the thin line
Lead me over the moon and back

Don’t be afraid, we will be fine

Come follow me
We walk away the night
Look to the balloon, and back

Share the faith, yours will be mine


And the water
Greets the trees
Stepping on their feet
A cold wet greet

Many years they grow
Many water did flow
And now and then the water
Came closer
It hugged the tree
Like once I did
When the meddow was green
And the water, far awayAhm, are it memories
Hidden by the silent trees
The leaves that left
And wait for better times
to returnWhen the meddows are green again
And when the sheeps are grazing
When the water returned back again
Meandering where it always will be
Revealing the rocks and the sandWhen the trees look over the water
Like they always do
Longing for unspoken desires
Just as I am longing for you

The view
The coat
The escalator
Only 20 seconds

No face
A lot of coat
Some moments I wish
I had less imagination then this


Celebrating life

I was walking, my head in the air
That time again, those days are there
Memories of festivities
I don’t know exactly how long ago

Your birthday, 90 years you should turn now
You will always be with me, somehow
I think about applepie
And start to let the music fly

So far away, and so close in my heart
I talk to you, as I usually start
Hey mama, how do you do
Happy birthday, I wish to you
What should it be great, to get a sign
That you are celebrating at this time

I look for your usual communication
But I not find it
I listen to the bird
Beautiful, as seldom heard

Yes, a living bundle of feather
And all the sudden I feel together
Sing, little wonderful bird
Sing happy birthday
The miracle occured

Thank you, for being so deep in me
Thank you, for making me so happy


HaFri Poetry February 2017

What do you see?

The chilly buildings
Or the reflections of the tree

Do you feel the walls, between where you walk
Are you missing a person, for a talk
Do you look up, to climb the stairs
Are you amazed by the breeze in the air

It is your choice, what to do
Suffering the dark, or enjoying the blue

Sometimes, when you are giving a job
You might think it is impossible, to reach the top
And, as it usualy is, with things to do
The success depends on you

It sure is a climb, upon the wall
And there is a risk, that you might fall
When you refuse, and quit
The story ends with it
If you give it a try
Knowing that you can not fly
Using your very own skills
Can let you climb over hillsThere is no excuse to stay below
Up we must, there we go
On your way, slowly but steady
Step by step, until you are readyWhile concentrating on your move
You realize that you improve
You overwin your fears and maybe a tear
All the sudden your goal comes nearYes, you did it, my good friend
Your struggle leaded to the end
Be proud at the wonderful you
And remember, you can, if you do

See here the story of my life
I can’t understand that I still survive
The thing is, girls and me
Always bring some mysery

I came on this sunny day, to say hello
A friendly moment, I thought so
But the girls decided to ignore
They showed their best sides, that’s for sure

No word came from them no baaa or boo
They preferred the grass to pay attention to
When my tears stopped dropping, they still were there
And I felt sad, needed to refind my attitude somewhere

So, I thought, there you have it, and click I did
As revenche I publish their bums, and that’s is it

Life is rushing
Headlong – out of control
From one thing to nextLife is passing by
We can’t turn back the clock -aint that ashame?
We take no time to relax
In our rush, to who knows where
We shortly visit everywhere
Have you seen
We have been
No time for helloRunning away to our future
We do not pay attention for the day
We do not see what is around us
All what counts is far awayWe are going faster, faster
Obey your master
And easily we forget
What we can getOne day, and that day comes for us all
There will be the hammer to fall
The promise, I talk to you another time
Is transforming to an empty lineWhy such a hurry
Instead of starting in time
Why not now drinking the wine
And take the future to burryIs your goal to reach the end
Or is the road your goal, my friend
Take time for who you meet
Give a friendly greetLater did just start
Do it now, don’t run so hard

Over the rainbow
I know, that you are watching meI can not see you
But I feel that you look to me
I like to think about you
You are a true, absent friend
Who really caresI know your name
But it should be the same
If it was not thereYou look at me, I look at you
And we both know it, too
Carry me, at your wings
Make me strong, to face the thingsI face the future with faith and flare
Because I know you take care

Come over the border
It is easy, there is no wall
Look to the other side
Mind the fall

The water shows you the way
Look further, discover the new
It might not be easy
But will be worth the view

Step over the border
A new horizon we shall find
We can make it, together
Let’s take the step
Let’s leave the past behind

Are you ready
For the new week
That is coming fast
Do you think
about the worries
From the future and the past
I can not control your mind
And you can not control that of mine
One is more heavy then the other
But both are beautiful, each in their kindNo matter how different we are
No matter how close, or how far
The new week is for us all to begin
We get in the same pond, for the swimLet’s swim together
Because you do matter
Let see what come, routine and surprise
The worries for tomorrow, melting like iceWe can not change what has to come
No matter how we worry for right or wrong
We can change the way we approach
With you next to me, I will enjoy the most

It is a perfect day

The warmth of the sun
Drifts the cold away
And even when nature is not yet sure
The warmer days will be coming

The cloudless sky smiles to me
A greet from who I can not see
But who always is there

I close my eyes
So that the light not blinds me
And I realize

That it is a perfect day
To step away

13.02.2017 © HaFri

Everyone needs it
Everyone has it
Why not give itEverybody likes it
Everybody feels it
When you live it
Never ignore a friendly smile
Enjoy the hugs, for a while
Feel the beat of your heartDon’t feel afraid to show it
Feed the fire, glow it
Love never tears apart

Now is the time
To say your past goodbye
Now is the moment
To give the future more then a try

Go there, I will be there too
We have plenty of things to do
We shall work hard, and relax a while
We shall share the sunshine, and dare to smile

Don’t listen to who tells you to scare
Look around, and see what is there
Life is beautiful, if you choose
Forget hate and fear, what is there to loose?

Now is the time
To start anew
Walk on with us
We are quiet a few

We share hope, and love, for who is there
And even if you’re not, we still do care
Don’t waste another moment, you will love it
Hate, fear and violence, we shall shove it

17.02.2017 © HaFri

And then, after a long and hurting fight
Things look to go to be all right
And then, like out of the blue
I do not know, what to do

I am full of hope, and have new plans
But my emotions give me no chance
No change to cheer, or be happy too
I feel so sad, what should I do?

Maybe I must go to sleep, and take a rest
And let the future do the rest

I sleep with one eye open
When I nap in the light
My daydream unspoken

Don’t misunderstand my dreams
Don’t think you know me
Not all is what it seams
Like not all is what you show me

Walk with me
There is a path, you might not see
Have faith, we can walk
Hand in hand, and we can talk

About the things that we do fear
What looks better, when you are near
We can laugh about what is told
We can feel blessed, getting together old

Walk with me
Every step
Every tree
Look into my eyes
And see

Standing at the top
Looking back
I see the long way
The struggles, the fear
Giving up was not an option

And all the sudden it was there
One moment I felt great
I made it
I so much enjoyed, being at the top

After a while
The view got boring
I missed the excitement of facing a new day
Because I could not get higher
And everything seemed the same

Looking forward
There was the way down
Looking back is not an option

I can’t stand still any longer
So, should I dare
And let go?

Giving up
All what I not need
Returning back at the ground

Where the wind is less strong
Where the cold is less chil
Where we belong
Where we are happy, still

Because it does not matter
To give up, what we actually not need
As long as I can share with you
There is a reason for the new day to greet

When the path gets small
When you can not see it at all
It still is there

It migh not be easy
Looking forward
It is so much nicer
To close the eyes

Drift away in dreams
To happiness, it seems
But when you realize
That sooner or later, you open your eyes

And the path, that you can not see
Is the only road to go
Then, I hope that you are still at my side
Walking with me, to where we don’t know

Until the rain is gone
To get wet
As miserable as the weather

In the rain
Feel like dancing
To get wet
It does not really matter

Take a break
From the pressure
Enjoy the nothing
It’s a treasure
That we so often ignore
Worth living for

Take a move
Where are you waiting for
Empty cupboards
Strange footprints at the corridore
New steps in your life
Don’t be afraid, you will survive

Leave behind
What you not need
Someone else might like and get it
And if not, simply, let it

Take a break
And a coffee
Or a tea
Taste the fresh baked cake

It is sad, that there is nothing nutty around
It is said, that it can’t be found
But I see it everywhere
Only not here

Do we not need it after all
Do we prefer a plastic doll?

I don’t like the smell of rubber
I prefer real, even when it blubbers

And so it is, my friend
The same with nutty, in the end

We can find it, in our brains, in the street
Nuts are everywhere, nuts we need

So I ask you, show some guts
Cheer up, and let’s go nuts

25.02.2017 © HaFri

Look around
See what is there
And share

Stay together
Be alert on what you see
You might watch something different then me

When everyone looks to the right
Then look left
And enjoy the different sight

HaFri Poetry September 2010

Why am I so careful with you
Why do I let you that free
While I, not for a moment
Can be without you anymore?

I hold you in my hand
And fold my fingers carefully
Until I feel you itching
Slowly I open them again

you dont move
You dont fly away
as if you know
That I let you go

You choose to rest, for a while
before you fly your own way again
Leaving me,
filled with faith

that you
and later
will be back
where you belong


waarom ben ik zo voorzichtig met jou

waarom laat ik jou zo vrij
Terwijl ik geen moment
meer zonder jou kan zijn?

Ik hou je in mijn hand
En vouw de vingers voorzichtig toe
Totdat ik je voel kriebelen#
En langzaam doe ik de vingers weer open

je blijft zitten
je vliegt niet weg
Alsof je weet
dat je mag gaan

Je kiest ervoor eventjes te rusten
Voor je je eigen weg weer fladdert
En je mij achter laat,
in vol vertrouwen

dat jij
en later
weer zal zijn
waar je vandaan gekomen bent

When life is tough
When you’ve had enough
Or, just for fun
Just call my name
And I will be there

That’s nothing new
I always was there for you
and still I am
Answering your call
Caring, for anything and all

You ask me, come to me
And I am there

You ask me, talk to me
And I am the ear

On a distance
very near

I will be there
No matter when you need me
Your head at my shoulder

But, my dearest friend
when I call you
that very one moment that I need you

I dont hear you
I dont see you
Than I am nowhere
it is just me

Als het leven zwaar is
Als je het even niet ziet zitten
Of, gewoon voor je plezier

Je hoeft me slechts te roepen
En ik ben er,
 ik ben hier

Dat is niets nieuws

Ik was er altijd voor jou
en ben er nog steeds

Antwoord op jouw roepen
Zorgend voor alles en de rest

Je vraagt, ben je er
En ik ben er

Je vraagt, praat met me
En ik ben een en al oor

Op een afstand

Heel dichtbij

Ik zal er zijn
Het maakt niet uit wanneer je me nodig hebt
Jouw hoofd op mijn schouder

Maar mijn lieve vriend

Als ik jou roep
Als ik jou nodig heb,
die ene enkele keer

Dan hoor ik je niet
Dan zie ik je niet
Dan ben ik nergens meer

HaFri Poetry December 2016


When you are too far away
Come over the bridge
And take the barreers away
Every distance can be overwon
If you want
Come over the bridge
If peace on earth is so important for you
Make it happen to who is around you as well
Take the step, the bridge is strong
Come closer, together we are strong
If you can not see the other side
Come over the bridge, it is all right
And if you do not dare, to cross the water
If you can not take that step
Encourage the other, to come closer
If a happy life is important to you
Know what to do
Come over the bridge
Take that first step
The view is magnificent
Feel the thrill of overwinning your pride
Come over the bridge, do not hide
Throw away your pride
Showe courage, do not hide
Take that step, it brings you closer
And if you can not, yet, see
Step further, there is nothing to loose
Come over the bridge, and live peacefully

Find me a place
Under the sun
Where I not need to flyWhere are no silly questions
Where no one needs a why
Find me a place
Under the sun
Where The day may not endWhere no one can reach us
Where we not need to pretendFind me a place
Under the sun
Where I can sleep until the nightWhere my dreams may not come true
Where the darkness is filled with light
(c) 07.12.2016 HaFri Poetry


What would this world be
If we were all the same
I think it should be boringI love the difference
Between you and me
The pattern like patchwork
Our variations in colour
In temper and how we walk
Understanding eachother,
Even when we differently talkTogether we build our world
Yours is different then that of meI love the variations
I love the difference in our beautyStay how you are
I will do the same
Together we make the difference
Together we fit into the same frame


(c) 09.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

The path of life
Brings us many choices
And every choice we make
Brings us a bit further

You may say, further away
You may say, a step closer
All I ask is from where, to where
Is it important where we came from
Is it important where we go
I think that my goal is the road
Shall I walk to the other side
changing my view
Or shall I take the stairs,
On my way upShall I walk, back to the light
Or shall I take the bicycle, for a rideMy choices, I decided what to do
How about you?

(c) 10.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

The days are short
The nights are dark and cold
The light is gone before I see
A man sings in the street
Merry christmas to you and me

I dive deeper in my coat
My hands in the pockets
Find a lost coin
And a written note
The shopping list was short
No christmas gifts on it

I feel old and cold
But there is that little voice,
inside of me, again
That tells me to look up, again
I do
And am blinded by the light
A contradicn in time

I am glad with the darkness around me
No one needs to see my mysery
I so much want you to be happy
The worries away from you and me

When I turn around the corner
The wind blows, icey at my face
It takes my breath away
And so do you

I wish I could give you some air
Some freedom
Away from the pressure
Back to the pleasure
Into the light
Our neverending fight

I take you a bit closer in my arms
It won’t make the night brighter
But it feels so good
And makes our lives a little lighter

(c) 11.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

The lights are on
In the City
Illuminating the empty street

Where all are rushing
Headlong…out of control..
Tired, after a busy day
On their way to a nice meal, at home

Or calling home, with the excuse
Of working over time
Heading to feed his hunger for love

Anonymous, we hurry up
To find some rest, behind closed curtains
Where the heat is on
And the tv blares another talent show
No time for loosers

And when the lights
Went out
In the city

The only one left at the street
Is the man, who lost everything

(c) 13.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

Until today you were my friend
But, to be honest, it long did end
It long was not that I trusted you
It long was that I did not like your words

At one side, showing a friendly greet
Followed by a horribly deed
A christmas card, I got from you
I did not want it, and I knew

That was the moment to be honest and clean
I don’t want you in my life, not digital, I mean
I can not agree with what you do, and what you are
Your words and deeds differ so far

I saw your two sides, and it is very clear
We went too far, we were too near
I wanted to make it gently, so I tried
But your reaction made me feeling frightened

So, I cut the lines, for the second time
I can’t say I am happy, but I will be fine
No longer you can hurt me, or my friends
Thank you for opening my eyes, in the end

I have no idea what you will tell the people around you
Who most certainly will ask you
I know what I will say
The time we worked together was okay
It broke, that time, long ago
It was wrong to give you a second chance
But it is right, now to say no
It is time for be a honest Hans 🙂

(c) 16.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

There are moments
That I ask myself
Why I am running through the night

And when I desparately look for answers
That I can not find
The reply is in the light

I am worried about many things
Of what only time the answer brings
I can not always be strong
I am not always wrong

I show emotions
I dare to show a tear
And I never felt stronger
Then with you, being so near

(c) 16.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

I was sitting, my head in my hands
So that no one could look at my tears
I bowed to the shadow
So that no one could look at my fears

The light of the moon
Glared in the ice cold night
I was alone, I thought
And that was all right
When my tears dried up
I looked up to the sky, to see
The reflections of the sun
That gave the moon to meI kept looking to it, as in a trance
My heart went calm and started to dance
I joined it, in a lure
I wanted, because it was so pureNo diffusion, no jealousy or hate
Just the reflection, clear as it is
Nothing between the moon and me
Just silent brightness, what a blissI told my heart to share this with you
Just like I always do
I want you to see, what is around
Love and happiness, it can be foundYou find it in me, I find it in you
And there is nothing to worry
Nothing to do
Just wrap the light around your tired mind
Love is all around, and with you so easy to find

(c) 17.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

I still have no idea
Where we are going to
And I also can not tell
If it is there, better then here

I can not promise you a rainy day
I can not promiese you a rose garden

What I can promise, and what I do
Is being at your side
Because together life is more easy
Even when it is not always right

When we need to return on our steps
It is better when we are not alone
And if we have to change our sight
We not need to do it on our own

I am at your side, if you want me to
And even if I do not know where
I have faith in any step
Because life is so much better
When you are there

(c) 18.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

The time is near
The last rose of the year
It has no idea of the cold
It flowers further and behold
Not afraid about what will come
Showing its beauty, just staying strong

I know what her future be
But I do not dare to tell
I let her show her beauty
And am enjoying it well

On the other side
The new life just begun
It is a way to go
Before that spring is in the air
We know
But I am not going to break the spell
She is ready for it, I can tell

A look in what the future will be
New flowers, for you and me
We will remember the past
We will remember what was

And when the spring finally arrives
We will look into each others eyes
Smiling about the worries, that did not come true
Laughing because I still love you

We are between the past and what will come
Right at that border line
We can’t change what was, we can’t change will come
We are together
in the light

(c) 19.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

Rocking around the christmas tree
What a humbug, that’s not for me

Do I need peace on earth, all day
Give me my drinks, and I am okay
Al that noise about christmas and snow
The one who invented that, I don’t want to know

In Australia it is frigging hot
And here it will be raining a lot

And did you ever see
Rudolph passing thee?
Or did you see Santa in the light of the moon
Wake up, you may dream much too soon

The annual drama about what to eat this year
The awful music about that christmas is near
hohoho, it is blurred
nonono, I am disturbed

All those light, it hurts my eyes
Is it just me that christmas denies?
I am not in, I will quit
No peace on earth, that‘ is it

I shall roast my chestnuts, until they are brown
I shall bake the hottest turkey in town
I shall drink all the bottles empty do you hear
It will fill myself up, this year

Forget the balls, the angels, bring on the sheep
Grill it, medium, and stick the herbs down deep
Yes! War is over, if you want it
I will explode this christmas, granted!

(c) 19.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

Sometimes I think I should fly away
Away from worries, sadness and hate

But I don’t know
Where I should go

In fact I don’t want to run away
My life is here, things are okay

I let no one ruin my life
Love is the answer, to survive

So, my plane will stay at the ground
And I will fight
For love, what is all around

(c) 19.12.2016 HaFri Poetry


the wind of change blows over the world.
We have had enough of fear
We have had enough of hate
It is enough! Stop it!

In the name of love
Let the wind of change blow
We are not going to take it any longer
We don’t answer violence with hate

Because love is so much stronger

(c) 21.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

The man asked me
Where do you go
And I replied
I do not know

The man asked me
Why I took this line
I could not answer
So I said, because it is fine
The man asked me
But, you need a target in life
Something to live for
A line you can strive

I looked at the man
And said, with a smile
I have reached my goal
Already a while

(c) 25.12.2016 HaFri Poetry
When you feel down
When you are close to the ground
Look up

It might not be easy
When your bones are stiffened
But get up

It might cost some time
But that is fine, you have all the time
To stand up

And if you can not handle it alone
Grip my hand, of that of another friend
Who will help you up

And if you can not see the helping hand
You might look into the wrong direction
Look up

There is much more to see
Than what is in front

Look up
Find someone
Who let you see

(c) 25.12.2016 HaFri Poetry
Looking forward
To what the future will be
We have expectations
Of what we might see

There is a way to go
To reach our future sight
Can we reach it? I don’t know
Who will be, at our side

Questions are plenty
Our answers are a few
And when it is that far
We wish that we knew

What was laying on our road
Where we could walk
Where we should take the boat
Storms and heavy talk

I wish you all
A room with a view
I shall not tell
What you should do

Do it
With sunshine in your heart
You might walk different ways
Let hope and love be a part

Step forwards, don’t be afraid of the new
After all
Every move
will give
a new oom with a view

(c) 25.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

Your Life
Is only one direction
In different waysYour path
Is directed by instructions
Rarely streight to where we go

Always with a reason
Often without a clue
But we just continue
What else could we do

It never is a travel blind
You never need to walk alone
There is always someone
You can find

(c) 27.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

It needs time
To get great things done
It needs time
To grow

But, who takes time
Smalll steps
Will reach his goal as well
That depends, however

On what your goal might be
Is it growing, big as a tree
Is it that one step further
That everyone said, you could not take?

Taking two steps forward
Slipping one step back
Slow down
And look around you

You will be amazed
Before your reach
your final destination

(c) 28.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

like every day
This day as well
I get that pain in my brain
It is a daily treat
What to choose to eat

Shall it be chicken, shall it be cow
Or better a vegetarian pork, somehow
Do I prefer a pizza snack
Or am I tempted by a big mac?

A vegetarian salad maybe
Or is it some fish that I will see
I don’t know what I want, but I know what I can
But I can’t put it all in just one pan

I get crazy, it is too much for me
I guess the noodles, it might be
How about some spam and eggs
Help… how can I ever relax

With so much food to choose
I struggle with potatoes, maybe a goose?
No, we just finished the duck at chrissie day
Some nice toast might be okay

Another hour is gone
And I still can not decide
A salad can not be too wrong
Maybe some healthy fruits inside

I think and think, but nothing comes in my mind
I slowly get bananas, there is too much to find
Someone helps me, what to eat then, please
Else I am stucked with salami and some cheese

(c) 29.12.2016 HaFri Poetry

Play the game
But don’t play with feelings
Have fun
And let the others laugh as well

Choose wise
But choose
Else you might loose more
Then that you ever gained before

Play the game
Love and be loved
Look to the sun, when it rains

Fight for your life
But never fight against others
Ever seen a winner, in a war?
Do know, where you are standing for
Don’t give up
But don’t ruin your life
Or that of someone else

Don’t play with feelings
Don’t give hope
If you are not willing to fullf
When you look into the mirror
Be sure you like the picture you see
And if you cover a part of it
Ask yourself why

HaFri Poetry October 2016

The sun is thin
Your colours are fagile
Together you harmony
in beauty

The wind gets cold
The evenings get longer
Closing the windows
And an extra blanket at the bed
Enjoying each others company
Like the reflecting light
And unconditionalthe sun will shine again
And until then
We hide in our black jackets
and walk against the windI see the raindrops at your head
And all the sudden
I want to kiss them all

A lazy sunday it could be
But sleeping out was not for me
I woke at five, and had my coffee
No hour extra, but early enough, you see
So when it went 6.30 at the clock
I picked up my things for a walk at the block
I could blindly find my shoe and sock
So Hans was steady and ready to rock
The camera hanging over my neck
All shops were closed, except the Mac
No bakery open, yet, ah what the hack
When I return I reward myself with a snack
The dark transformed gently to black and blue
The blue hour was coming to sayhow do you do
I took my camera and made some pictures too
But that ain’t easy, I frankly tell you
I took my time, walked along the quay
Busy boats, business goes on, you know why
Birds waking up, and the light, what a sight
Blue went easily bright
I walked on, and time flew away
My depression disappeared, and that’s okay
And when the bridge appeared on my way
I almost run home yelling, yippee ya hey
One spot at the clock told me it was not yet 8
Too early for yelling, for coffee not too late
I went happy at home, feeling great
Having a wonderful breakfast at my plate
And now it is 11, and I feel a bit dap
I think I lay down for a tiny nap
Outside it is grey, nothing to do
So here I go, cheerio to you

There are people in the street
They are loud
And I don’t want to hear what they shout

They shout that they want the country to be clean
The land belongs to us, in an agressively scream
The people in the street, they run away
A handful, in brown jackets, shouts if it is okay

I turn my head, because I don’t want to see them
And they shout that they are the people

‚wir sind das Volk‘

A handful of people – not in my name
I shake my head and am ashame

Their sound is for all so loud
Because no one likes to disagree
Because as long as you are with them
You will be from their violence free

No one tells that they are wrong
And they feel immensely strong
On their way to more power
they get not more, but their words get louder

Then, when they think they are strong enough
They decide that their time is now
They want the power, somehow

But most people are like me
They love to live in peace and harmony
They believe in democracy

The handful of people that shout so loud
Are surprised when they see
That their hollow words
Can not compete with the silence majority

The silent majority need no words to be
Tolerant, peaceful and happy
The silent majority shows what they want from life
And this way, in the end
Justice and love, always survive

Also when we are tired
Don’t think that we are not strong
We not need words, because we do
And together, even in silence
the silent majority is strong

Bridges are not just to walk over
It is worth to stand still
and look around you

So that you can see the things
That you can not see
From both sides of the water

One moment
Can change your view

When the leaves colour
And the flowers fade away
It is time to prepare
For the darkness of the day

Catch the sparkles
As long as you can
And you will see
Less darkness there will be

When the stars
Start to reflect their light
The darkness will be less
In the longer night

I crawl a bit closer to you
And I softly sigh
I feel comfortable happy
And we both know why

How great would it be
To feel as a bird so free
To forget about the things
Fly away, spread your wings

How wonderful it should be
To take your worries away
Even only for one day
Nothing to think, nothing to worry

Far away from killing bureaucracy
One day without pain
No worry for democracy
Just positivity to gain

Now I don’t really need to be a bird
It is enough that you have heard
My scream, let us break free
Nothing else matters
Just you and me

The days get colder
The darkness wins
The sun looses its power
And we are prepared

The summer clothes
Are stored away.
Maybe one or two pieces not
We can hope for such a day
But it will be few

It gets colder
The jackets warmer
And the heat is on
Funny, how fast the changes come

And we are prepared
Prepared for the winter
For the cold

We know not exactly what we can expect
And time will learn
If we considered all the possibilities

We are prepared
As good as we can
Time will surprise us
But we are ready
For what comes

Let’s cuddle a bit closer
Let me feel your breath, tickling my nose
Let me see the worries in your eyes
Let me show you mine

We not need words to know
What hurts the most

We are prepared
And one day
We will see
That the darkness fades away
And that day
It is not even that far away
I will still feel the tickle at my nose
I will look at you
And catch the sparkle from your eyes

We not need words
To know our love

The rose gently shows her beauty
She is not aware
That it is October
Rain and storms
Are serious threads for her beauty

Fragile she catches
The last warmth of the sun
Her beauty
Between the worn out flowers
Of summer

And I think
How wonderful it is
That she can show herself
Without worrying about what might come
Or maybe not

Just showing
Her wonderful colours
And serene power

Because she can

For those who can not read this
Because their eyes are filled with tears
For those who can not see this
Because their days are dark

For those who can not smell it
Because they can’t remember their last meal
For those who can not pick them
Because their life is such a hell

For who can not fly away from war
For those who are hated,because they can
For those who lost everyone in the world
For those who are sent out to kill

For those who are slaves
For those who hide their worries
For those, whose hearts are broken
For those who want nothing more then peace

For them who found the happiness
For those who found the rest, at least
For those who can smile again
And for them
who do not loose hope

For all who believe that we are all God’s people
For those, who lost hope and found a light
For those who need a helping hand
For those who gives that hand

For who believes in love
For who dreams of peace
in the heart, in the soul

For all who believe, that we can

Do you dare
To walk the road
Without being aware where it leads to

Do you care
When the end is endless away
Or maybe just a breath

Are you scared
From the mist and fog
That takes away your sight

Are you scared
To walk alone through the night
And loose yourself

When you can not see me
It doesn’t mean I am not there
When I am away
It doesn’t mean I do not care

I can follow you
Or you may follow me
Both is okay
Because no matter what
I am never more then one step away

The painted wall
Covers it all
And I wonder what it is,
Behind the colourful plaster

Against the weather
And the sound of the street
What is behind
Is only seen
For who who has the keyThe painting looks wonderful
when the sun shines upon it
The wall will make a shadowWe can only guess
What happens in the house
Is it bright and happy
Or dark and cold?Is it a laughter, a tear
Or maybe nothing at all?I give the wall one last view
The colours that cover the wall
I like them
And I wish
I could stop worrying about that wall

I open the curtains
And look outside
I see the sun shining
Blue sky, all is all right

I turn around and look at the bed
Two empty pillows
And the blankets
Wrapped into each other
I walk to the kitchen
Put un the kettle
Tea and coffee
Jam and toastA friendly sun peeks on the plates
I think when I last cleaned the window
The light tells me it is longer ago
Then I thoughtI look out of the window
And see a man, looking to me
He takes a picture
And I wonder what he seesAll what is left
Are crumbles and some cheese

You can hear from far away
The crystal clear drops that I share
Come to me
And you won’t be thirsty anymore

Wade your feet in the refreshing water
Wash the dust and pane away
Clean your body with my elixer
Loose the sorrows of today
Give your body a lovely shower
It deserves it, and so do you
Let the magic show it’s power
Close your eyes and it will doDrink my water with your hands
You never drank such before
Wet your lips like it is the first time
Swipe away the pastExperience my magical poison
Enjoy it, because it will be your last

And right at the moment
that you think you have got it all
You get sometithing moreAnd just when you think
That you can’t take it any longer
The pressure gets a little bit stronger
You know you can not swim anymore
The darkness pulls you down
And it only gets colder and more darkYou reach your hands up
You think that no one can help youWhen you lost all what you have found
When you can not find the groundRight at the moment that you don’t care
Because you can’t any longer be strong
Just at that moment
I will be there

The rain softly drops
In harmony with the violin
People walk by
It is wet outsideThe melody gets lost
In the sound of the city
The man looks with hollow eyesHis play is routine
His day is routine
It is a bad day
When all is greyThe man plays on
He does not even notice
That the rain has stopped
Or when a coin has droppedA penny for your thoughts

Is holding tight
When you fear the night

Is letting free
Fly as long as you want
And I will be at your side

Has no borders
And even when the way is false
The choice not necessarily is wrong

To disagree
And to make good, again and again and again

Is the peace within
Knowing that
No matter what happens
You can rely

Is smiling with the heart
Even when the road goes down

Because I know
that I can only be free
When we can fly together

And nothing else matters

I listen to the sound
of the clear water
Falling down from the stone

The drops that collide
And unite
In a river

Fleeding down
Feeding the meadows
And the tree

They remind to you and me

Where we came from
Long ago
Where we go to
We might not know

We met as two
And continue as one

On a grey day
The rain may feed us
On a sunny day
We shine as bright diamonds

When we fall
We jump up again
And continue our road

When the river ends
We will float into the sea
It will be a new begin
For you and me

Nevermore we are alone
And who knows
One day
we return to the stone

Rolling down
One step away

Close enough
But not coming closer

One step away
Don’t look back

You might have less time
then you need

Hold me tight
It is all right

Look forward
Mind the step

The traces of our past
May be the treasures of our future
We not need to look back
When we hold the memories

What the present leaves
Is the past in our future
And the memory remains
Searching a place
In the mind
And in the soul

Pick your memories careful
Select the good
You will need it
Forget the bad
You not need it

Plant the seeds of the past
In the soil from today
Care for them
So that you can crop
The fruits in the future

warning, warning
Achtung, Attention

Hackers are on their way
Even the broadcasting does say
So it is true
Now what to do?

Not open the video,
Do not click!
It will spread from nature
The content is sick!

Copy this message, not just share
Post it for no reason, everywhere

I am so tired and so fed up
With those warnings that are put up
It seems the rant
never ends

Hoaxes, is what they are
They damage more
Then where they are warning for

Do me a favor
Before you send this sh*t
Google it!

Close your eyes
Step away from the evil worldForget to think
Forget your pain for a minute.
Breath calm
Be surrounded
With a coccoon of peaceHide for a bitAnd dream our dream comes true

Life takes unexpected changes
No matter how good you are preparedYou think you roll
Into the right direction
And then you miss the final screw
Instead of travelling
With four
Or moreYou might end
All aloneHold the line
The water should not rise too high
To hide your abandoned beauty

It is okay
To worry
And to feel sad

When you accept the shoulder
To lean on

But not worry for what not yet is
Because things
Might turn out
In unexpected ways

Good morning, world,
Happy Tuesday

Now where is the coffee??

The question is not who might put the light off.
The question is who brings it back .

Show what you can
You are worth itBe longer
Be stronger
Be the entire you
Not just a part
Show the world
With who they have to doYou not need to be better then yourself
And definitely not lessStretch
Be the amazing you

© HaFri Poetry, 26.10.2016

Baby, I am home
It was a long day, all alone
I did my duty, I think
Time to relax, wink a wink

Oh, how sad, you are not there
I hope you are well, because I care
I wait for you
Nothing else to do
I think to myself, what you do now
I know you are busy, but I not know how
And while the clock ticks the seconds away
I count the minutesSoon you will be there
I wish, I hope, I prepare
I look forward to you, my love, my best friend
Even when waiting, today, seems to take no endS

I have been waiting so long
For the train to come
And now it is there
There is so much on my mind

I was so used for waiting
And now I should depart
Leaving the platform
That has becme so familiar

Goodbye little birds
Please be happy
I come back
One day
Sharing the crumbs

I find myself a seat at the window
One second I consider
If I go into the proper direction
I change my seat

That is inmiedietly taken
By another passenger
The train leaves
And as expected
It is going into the direction that I not expected

I sigh and smile
The rain taps at the window
And I tap back
Secretly thinking

How lucky I am
to be not that raindrop

A tap at my shoulder
Sir, your ticket please?

And I realize
What I have forgotten

© HaFri Poetry, 26.10.2016


I so much wish
Peace in your mind
I so much wish
Laughter in your heart

I so much wish
A place where you can rest
Away from thoughts
That put you down

I wish you
To win the lottery
It should not solve all problems
But it could make it a bit more comfortably

I wish you luck
I wish you love
And most of all
I wish it
From myself

So many questions
So few answers
So many worries
What don’t fade away

So little time
So much to do
So much longing for peace
In the world, in the soul

We are always running
From one point to the next
Seldom taking the time
To enjoy it and relax

You may say, how can I stop?
Or I do not know how to stop at all.
By running faster then you can
You miss the signs at the wall

Who dares to stand still, for a moment
Will not mss the run at all

I know, it is easier said then done

The sun is shining
No time for winter blues
With dusting and cleaning
For laundry and irioning

the sun is shining

But well, look at me

I am sitting here
Taking a break
The smell of fresh soap
Whiping the crumbles of the cake

I do the work
And I don’t complain
I wait, patiently too
Because breaking free
means nothing without you

(c) 31.10.2016  HaFri Poetry




We walk forward
Leaving what we know behind
New challenges to be find

We look forward
Is it the future, that we see
Or a wish,
Based on our memory

Step by step
We get more trust
In the bridge
That carries our footprints

The other side
Comes near

And while the sun
Shines gently at my head
I wish that you were here

HaFri Poetry – March 2016

February 2016, Rosengarten


Hey little darling, my goose
Come a bit closer, because I have news

It is that time of the year again
You know, the thing between woman and man
Or of course, If you prefer
A he and a he, or a her and a her 🙂

The winter will go, it has been told
Even when the water still is frigging cold
The daffodils do flower
The bright takes more hours

I can shout it out loud
Or can nibble it in your ear
Rise and shine, because spring is here

© HaFri Poetry 01.03.2016

(july 2015, Zandvoort beach)

Unreachable you are
But not really that far
I see you, and come close
Until I capture you the most

I see you, but you are too busy
to see me

You and your flower

I come near
And then I can’t come closer anymore
I look
and focus what I see
The memory will remain

Even when you
or I
are gone
into the memory lane

© HaFri Poetry 01.03.2016

(summer 2015, Zandvoort)

On a hot summernight
When the evening seems not to end

Watching the waves of the sea
And, when no one is looking, waving back

On a hot summernight
Where you could touch the sky

Watching what is happening
The sun sets on fire
And you don’t need to be afraid
The water is cool, and wide
The fire is far away

An awe to look to
Unnatural beauty touches your soul
And you wish
this hot summernight
should last forever

In life we need to be strong
Even when it is hard
We have to carry on
Your bed can be gone
But you still need to sleep
Some wounds are hurting pretty deep

Where can you rest,
When you are roaming around
When you are lost
How can you be found

Pack your things
Count what you have
When looking better, you find much more
Then what you were ever
Looking for

© HaFri Poetry 02.03.2016


Or found?

But not safe.

Why is it left at the street
As if no one really needs it?

Why did I make a picture
And not even moved it aside?

When that was wrong
What has been right?

Is there a beginning
After the end?

© HaFri Poetry 03.03.2016


From my chair in the sun
I look to the horizonThe grey sea
And the red ship
It looks so peaceful
The waitress brings me another beer
The ship is still there
It slowly passes from the left to the right
Beautiful in eye sight

I sit with my beloved and a drink
While I think

About where the ship comes from
And where it will go
First harbour in sight is Amsterdam
And that is all I will ever know

The ship is long gone
And so are we
How much I long for meeting the sea


© HaFri Poetry 03.03.2016

( march 2016 Wrapped air)

If you have nothing to share
If there is no one who cares

When the street
Freezes your bones even more

And the people pass by
Busy with buying food for the day
Blind to see you sitting there

When all you have to do
Is nothing else then selling wrapped air

(February 2016, Urderbacher Kämpe)

Step by step
Running away from the past
Facing the future
But never reaching it

Step by step
At the long and windy road
On the long run

Your path is clear
Not your destination
You will soon be turning..
Turning.. around the corner

Do you know
Where you’re going to?
No matter where
Where ever I may roam
Running home
It’s a long way there
Running with the devil

© HaFri Poetry 04.03.2016


There was a lot of noise in the tree
Tweeting birds, but not for me
They were busy, as you cn see
Or maybe you can’t see it at all
They are pretty small

Their sound however, was loud and clear
Unmistakeable that they are here
Even on a rainy day
It is a clear message they have to say

Soon it will be spring, don’t be scared
The sun will come, and we are prepared
We are settling in, as you can see
Living in peaceful harmony
And if you want to see more
Next time picture better, we were with four

Elements, like wind and sea
Are directing me
I have my way in my own hands
But how fast, that depends

of the height of the waves
and the winds direction
I trust on the elements
they are my reflections

That is how my soul is directing me
I can ride the wild wind
I can travel the sea
anywhere the wind blows
Doesn’t really matter

to me

Packing my things
Going away
From this place
Full of sadness and fear

Not much I need
On my travel
To a bit more cheer

I rest my case
At the bicycle, that I shall ride
When I am there
Where it is sunny and bright

I not need to go far
In fact, I only need to turn around
And open my eyes
For the happiness
What here can be found

I unpack my bags
Leave the bicycle unused
I am looking more happy
Now the world looks less confused

© HaFri Poetry 06.03.2016


A few weeks ago
They did peek out
The crocusses
Ah, happiness came then

Spring will soon be there
Here is the sign
Their fragility and flowerpower
Colours to fade the winter away

Until yesterday
There are the last ones, flowering
In a sheltered place
And then the night came
with snow

The last crocusses, messngers of spring
A white blanket did they bring
But we all know
this will be over
And we all know
That we don’t know when

But it will
And I shall greet you
I shall remember
The victory of warm and bright
Over the cold of the night

A protest poem

It is there
Spring is in the air
Carefully nature starts to bloom
But beware, here is Mrs Doom

The beautiful daffodils
That colour the park
Mean nothing
To Mrs and her red bark, bark

While doggie is taken to relief
My eyes watch his boss in disbelieve
She kills the flowers
And takes them home
So she can enjoy them all on her own

My disbelieve grows to anger
More and more
With every flower that is torn

I believe in karma
You get the bill for what you do
But I now should gladly do a spanking or two

No, I shake my head instead
And hope that she,
Just like the flowers
Will drop dead.

Hi honey
I am going out
It is time to party loud
It is time to do less boring things
Here I go, spreading my wingsI have been waiting far too long
I feel fantastic, ready for all night long
Come with me, man you won’t regret
It will be hot, steamy and wetWell honey, I love to party with you
Nothing else I want to do
But, and I don’t want to spoil the matter
Your clothes are missing a few feather

Hello everybody, how do you do
Do I need to introduce myself to you
Well, I live here in this park section
And I am often the main attraction

I swim and eat roots and wood
I am happy when I am in swimming mood
From nature I am a bit shy
But not here in the park, I tell you why
There are tiny old ladies that bring me feed
Corn, carrots, potatoes, bread,
all the things I don’t really need
There even a few, I have to confess in shame
That do give me a real human nameI don’t need that, but since I can not speak
And those ladies don’t understand my poorly squeek
They keep on coming with bags full of stuff
And we really, really did have enoughNow some bosses in offices with ties
Seem to have notiiced a bit of our cries
They want a solution for the problem, for me
But I think the problem is not me, but sheEven the radio sent reporters to see
They talk with everyone, but not with me
How sad is my destiny, what will be the decission
What will be the result of this missionMaybe there comes a plate, don’t feed
But I am sure tht my feeders won’t read
They will come to waste their time
with making us thick and sickSo, when there comes publicity
and no one is asking me
What do you think, will be the result in the end
It is a matter of surviving, and I will not bendNo Human Being, when you don’t talk with me
I will never leave, you will see
Be unkind to my feeders, they need to know
Thtat they in the end, will kill my show
We eat you arm, you can be sure
Because when you are not thinking, we will produce more
Until you have no idea what to do anymore
We will rule, you can be sureSo I warn you for the last time
Keep your waste where it belongs, and don’t share it with mine

Sometimes I need to do
what I have to do
And then I hug a tree
or maybe two

It doesn’t matter, after all
Tree hugging is wonderful,
I had a ball

Gently the daylight touches the water
The warmth of the sun melts the darkness away#Sanft berührt das Tageslicht das Wasser

Während das Saison weiter wachst

Good morning wonderful world
It is a beautiful day it’s almost spring
I let the sunshine inAnd when you shine
It feels like you’re mine
The same old story with a new begin
Good mornng sunshine
We are friends today
You are not too hot
You reflect a lot
I can live with you this wayGood morning delightful light
Life can be beautiful, when things are all right
The joy of the approaching spring
Makes me try to sing

Like guards
Taller then you can tell
Stronger then you can say
More silent then you can hear

They look over us
Day and night
In rain, or in sunshine
They stay where they are

We can lean on them
They protect us
No matter what we do
They care

Bless, that you are there

Tweet, tweet, tweet
Come on
Listen to my beautiful song

It tells from winter, what is almost gone
It tweets the spring, it’s what we need
Tweet, twiddle dee dum
It’s in the air and you know it, hun

Tweet, tweet, tweet
You who hear this, you know what I need
It is fluffy and as beautiful as me
But instead it is not a he but a she

Tweet, twiddle, tweet, doddle, tweet, twit
For crying out loud, this has to be it
I want my baby and I want it now
And when Ihave her,
She lays me some eggs somehow

Yes you might have thought that my tweet
Is innocent and sweet
You know that that is definitely wrong
Here is the secret of my innocent song

I walking through the present
Drinking from the future, and dreaming of the past
The sun is thin, and I feel cold
Warmer when there is you to hold

Memorizing memories of moments that we share
Holding heartbeats that will never flare
It is less colder when you are there to hold
Closing the memories, the future gently unfold

Not knowing what we are going to
Just you and me and our fears for tomorrow
Hold me now, enlighten both our sorrow
Time will tell us what to do

It still is cold outside
But when I hold you
There is always the light
It is told to hold us through the night

© HaFri Poetry 13.03.2016


One day the sun will come back shining
Just believe in it, and you will see
One day it will be warm again
One day, for you and me

That day I sing you a song
Of the path that we did go
The road that never went wrong
Even when we di not see

One day the sun will be shining
From south to north, from east to west
Shadows will disappear
We will be there, at our best

Einen Tag wird die Sonne wieder scheinen
Glaube es, du sollst es sehen
Einen Tag wird es wieder wärmer sein
Einen Tag, für uns beiden

Auf diesen Tag singe ich Dir einen Lied
Von den Weg, der wir gegangen sind
Den Pfad war niemals falsch
Auch wenn wir das nicht so erfuhren

Auf einen Tag wird die Sonne wieder scheinen
Von Süd nach Nord, von Ost nach West
From south to north, from east to west
Dann wird den Schatten für immer verschwinden
Wir sind dann dort, ohne Schmerz

When I saw you
I was not aware
That it was the last time
I saw you there

We all were so happy, with you
The future looked much promising too
But the other day you were gone
No one has an adiea, where it went wrong

You were so happy, with you tree
And now none of you is there to see
We can only guess and hope
That you went to a better place
You gave so many a happy face

Farewell you beautiful creature
Maybe we meet in the future
And if someone did bad to you
I hope that he will end bad too

Take care, my friend, have a good flight
Spread your wings, and be all right

When I opened up my eyes
It was as dark, as when they were closed
When I stepped into the fire
It was like walking naked in the snow
When I lit the candle
The darknes was colder
And the light was darker then the night
How much I wished to give up
How much I was longing for my final breath
But the air kept on coming to my lungs
My heart refused to fullfill my last wish
Life went on and onThen you opened my eyes
You let the light fow in
You gave your hand
I stepped out of the fire
I did not realize this was a new beginThere is no cold, where we do hold
There is no darkness where we areHow much I missed you
Where were you, that time, long ago
It doesn’t matter, you are here now,
That’s all I need to knowYour eyes, so grey and blue
Tell me how much I love you
You made me strong
I will carry onAnd when it is all a bit too much
I return your smile
And it won’t last a while
Before our hearts do touchThe fire, that will warm you in the bright
The flame, that protects you for the nightTwo persons, two hearts unite
Two worlds, gathered to one
The darkness, we overwan
In the end, we return
back to the light

Finding their way
Over wave lengths
That we can not see

Invisible messengers
Sent from aweful constructions
Filled with amazing technolocy

Searching for recieve
They pass my eyes unseen
My ears don’t hear
The voice that hits me on its route

They are there
Leaving their killing micro dust
As long as we trust
In the advanced technolocy

When I feel up
You say you’re down
When I say smile
You form a frown

When I say water
You show me air
When I see you
You are not there

I can look through you
And still see me
Like a mirror
Like the sea

When I look, I can see
What is really making me
All my love and happiness
Are a reflection of you

Let me be your mirror
Look into me and see
The magical world
That you share with me

Let my eyes reflect your soul
Look into them, be not afraid
The future will be different
Then what you now expect
In the meantime enjoy your happiness
In what I shall

I’m looking to you
You’re not the same

Somehow something looks different today
Is it because it is Monday
Is it my crown, my feathers, my hair
My eyes? No, everything seems to be there

I’m lookig to you
Now who’s to blame

The colours seem to be not there
O my, 50 shades of grey
What did I do, to deserve this way
I could almot cry from dispair

But I know what is bothering me
It is to blame on photography
My colours were not good enough
But in black and white
Everything seems to be all right

I did learn my lesson
I never will pose again
For that man
He can stick his canon where it is dark
And if he returns, I bite him
sharper then a shark

Finally I can sit
It was such a day, and that was it
I did show my feather
In stormy weather

I did do my best
But no one was impressed
Only some photographers were there.. again
Be honest, such can not satisfy a man
I wanted more, put my feather in curls
Shaked my booty, bring on the girls
They came, they saw, and they went on
Oh pitty me, where did it go wrong?I can not offer them more privacy
For those countless papperazzi
They click and clack, they sit and bend
Picturing every feather, every momentIt has been enough, I am tired and annoyed
Do they know how much they destroyed?
I hope they made the picture of the year
Then at least they won’t retun to hereI am done, it’s been such a day
Those photographers MUST STAY AWAY!

Hop Hop Hop, beware, beware
It is that far, Easter is there
Get into stress for the Easter Bunny
O man, some people are too funny

Long rows in the supermarket
Big piles in overloaded carts
As if we need to store for a year
Ho, ho, ho, Easter is near

People see they have extrra free
Friends are invited, and food should be
And also some drinks
Me thinks

I look at it, and shake my head
This shopping stress may cause someones dead
Watching the clock, in a minute 4 times
Nothing better to do, in the waiting lines

Another box of eggs
Another lack of stress
Chocolate, oh, I almost forgot
There it is, let me take a lot
Bunnies, chickens and other sweets
Will fullfill our Easter needs

I smile and walk away
Because it is just another day
Okay, tomorrow the shops are closed
Still it seems to surprise the most

But me, being a clever man
Did foresee this event again
I smile and walk away
There is nothing I have to say

My Eastern is like christmas, but with an extra egg
My shoppings fit, like at Christmas, in one shopping bag
Happy Easter, to everyone
That is, if you can turn back to the fun

I foresay you, the shops are open, soon again
This stress is a commercial tricky mood
No stomach will suffer from a lack of food

That is, for the lucky ones, like me and you
Who have nothing better to do
Then buying and eating until we are stuffed
Like Eastern Eggs, more then enough

Too much troubles in my backpack
I need to clean it up
There is loads of new waiting for me
It is time to give the past a drop

Too much tears I carry around
They contineously keep me wet
I need sunshine to dry up a bit
Love and warmth, and all of that
I know, happiness is all around
Even when not easily been found
It is there and I will make place
For a happy heart and a peaceful faceIt should be a pitty
If my bag is too full
To pack the happiness in my toolI don’t want to miss a chance
Instead of darkness, I shall carry a glance
I must make placeI feel a bit scared when I empty my pack
It was so safe, shall I put it all back
Strangely now it is out, it no longer fits
That is the sign, this must be itI let the sunshine in, and I get thrilled
About so much place, what once was filled
Enlighted I pick up my bag, and I wonder why
I did not earlier kiss the past goodbye

What can all grow out of a bulb
Small, hidden in the ground
Until its time has come
An explosion, a miracle of nature

And you are there
Fragile first, but fully bloom soon
In amazing colours

What else can I do
Then look at you
Being amazed from this miracle
Your beauty is still wrapped
Slightly the colours are revealed

Sweet wonderful you
I whisper, and I take your hand
Because it is you, who really understand

I am afraid
Of the violence, around us
I feel scared
How the threathening has found us

Hold me
Don’t let me alone

I stay with you
When the fire gets hot
I hold you closer
When the rest is not

Hold me
we’re not alone

I am scared
From the hate and the war
I am afraid
The darkness is not far

Hold me tight
When we walk to the light

Let us fly
Away from the cold
The hangman long not need us
Hopeless nights won’t feed us

Hold me tight
You are the star in my night

I sit here at the bench
On sunny days
But as well in rain

It might look sweet
But it is a pain

And if you say, oh how lovely this is,
I am sorry that I can not share your mood at this

This place is bad, man, can’t you see?
Do you really not matter about me?
I sit here, day and night
I can not move, that can’t be right!

Sometimes, when the weather is fine
I get company at theis benche of mine
When I am lucky, I get a pat
At the head

And when it is starting to rain
They leave me sitting here, again
As if I am not there, have nothing to do
Now I tell you
Dolls have feelings too
You can leave me alone
Because my heart is stone

But you can not control my mood
When I feel frustated, then I am!
