HaFri Poetry January 2017

What’s another year
If you put it in a life time
In the age of mother earth
our lifes are less then a second of time

Still Too long to keep our breath
Time waits for nobody
Before we know it might be gone
We might take it easy
We might not have longNo matter how I turn my thoughts
No matter how I walk my path
I will remain the same as ever
Before and aftermathI try to keep my head up
It is not easy all the time
Sometimes the rain will wet me
Sometimes the sun will shineNo matter about the weather
We have to go
On with the show
My heart shall remember the good things
And smiles, because all what I know

Every day
We pass bridges
The comfortable way
To get at the other side

Sometimes we ride the wild wind
hey hey hey
Sometimes we enjoy the sun
And look around
To the beauty, what we pass

We do not realize that we pass the bridge again
It is so normal,
That we carry on
In thoughts, in our dreams, in our books
It is so natural
That we pass the bridge

Until we look down
and see
That we are able
To pass barreers
That in our imagination
never could have been taken

Walk on, or ride your bicycle
Go to where you need to go
And feel amazed
About what you all can overwin

In the night
Alone with your fear
You can not sleep
Even when I am near

In the day
Your worries won’t fade away
You are so tired
You don’t want to stay

I look at you
When you finally sleep
Because of the pain

How can I reach you
When you won’t let me
How can I wrap my arms around you
When you feel too scared
To let me in

I am scared, you say, and so afraid
Well what can I do?
I so much want
To be closer to you

I can not solve your fear
But I can dry your tear
I don’t know what the future will bring
But I will be there, if you let me in

Yes my heart
I am scared
And, for you, I will be strong
Even when we both can’t see
What the future brings upon

Yes, my world
I won’t leave you alone
Take my arm
And let us be together
Until far
After the cold has gone

When I will return on earth
What sounds weird, because I am still here
I want to be an astronaut

I want to be surrounded
By the black, endless sky
And when I look outside
I will see the stars

They might not be much closer
But they look less far

I should not mind
Being locked up
In Bowies thin can
Because my view will be endless
I shall be able to do
What not many can

When I return on earth
I want to be an astronaut
And fly me to the moon
Where I shall be loosing my direction
Without gravity
Floating in perfection

I will get dizzy, I might feel not well
When I turn around onethousand times
And there is no one that I can tell

Because at the moment, that I am lost
I will see, what I use the most
The blue ball in the sky
Will still be turning

I will look at it
And feel happy because I know
Nothiing really matters
Even for earthlings it often seems so

When you are looking up to someone
The other is looking down upon you

But, you not necessarily
Need to feel less
Just because you choose to look up

And the other not necessarily needs to be better
Only because he is in an upper position

No matter how low, no matter how high
When we respect each other
We always look streight in the other’s eyes

© HaFri Poetry – 10 01 2017

It is cold
But the sun is shining
The winter offers plenty of place
At he places that in summer are overcrowded

Watching over the water
A penny for your thoughts
Looking to the bridge
From one side to the other
And while the sun
Shyly shines upon your skin
Your dreams drift awayNo one is there,
To share your thought with
You thinkBut that is just a matter
Of in what direction you look
I see you
And I won’t reach you

© HaFri Poetry – 15 01 2017

All we need
Is something to eat
One loves veggies
The other meat

I love both, I am not picky
I can also enjoy a chickkie

It is much easier to be happy
When your belly is filled
An icecream, chips, sausages
Beans, Cream, Crackers and stuff
Bring it on, I can’t get enough

Happiness, it’s all we need
And happiness, migth be
Sitting into your best mates feed

Do you think that I don’t fit?
Do you think the picture is too small?
Do you not really like it
Or do you not care at all?

I can tell you, size does matter
And when I show you all the feather
I can’t help it when you can not see
It doesn’t make me another me
I show what I have, and I hope she will be impressed
And not, like you, will be mind mashed
I am beautiful, and complete
Maybe that is whyYou only see of me the part
And your judgment seems not too smart
Step back, and take me in another view
I will show you beauty as you never knewStep back, I show you, one more time
And if you still don’t get it
Then I guess it is your problem
And most certanly not mine

Forgotten memories
Walking along the fence
The wind slightly moves my hair
Enjoying the sun intense
As if you still were there
Looking to the flogs
Remembering the warm delight
Reciting the love blogs
Longing back to that summernight
I never do regret
What is done, and what is said
I will do it again, when I will
The wind blows faster, when I chill
Never forgotten
And nowhere to find
Memories of sunny days
Invisible, because we were blind

Traces at the Ice at the pond in the Rosengarten.
What can I say
What shall I do
The only thing I see
Are traces of you

The closet filled
I am breathing in your perfume
It is as if you are here
Your shoes, the coat,
that you now can not wear
The silence of your absense
Is louder, the further you go
And when you return
I knowI calmly follow. with you
The traces in our heart

The days are cold and short
The nights are much too long
An extra candle spreads softly light
I gaze into the flame
Where from my dreams just cameMy daydream lets me walk
To a maginificent view
Over the water, to the bridge
Ahhh, remembering the good days
When we did not know, what we know now
And where we were happy, somehowThe bridge over the water
Connecting friends
The bridge that inspires
And makes me dream even more
No matter if it is cold or warm
Daydreams are allowed to have some charmI open my eyes, and seem to dream on
When I look to your painted view
It tells me, soon it will be spring again
As if I never knewI will walk over it, and find my rest
I will look to it, and do my best
To be a better person, all the time
For who walks with me over the thin line

You, my inspiration, you, the one I love
and you too, my dear friend, who painted
the different dreams,
That we all can be dreaming of

Gazing over the icey water
I stare into my soul
Diving deeper in my memories
I consider it all and all

I breath the energy in
I breath the worries out
And when I hold my breath
The silence sounds so loud

I forget my worries
My mind fills with emptyness
There is no place at all

I forget the pain,
The cold is no longer there
My balance prevents me to fall

Slowly I open my eyes
Gently I remember where
Softly I realize
The reason why I am here

© HaFri – 22 01 2017

I can not let it happen any longer
I shall open up more my mouth
I wil show that love is stronger
Then hate and all the violently shout

I shall not accept when life is hurt
I can not accept when humanity is disturbed
We are all God’s people,
No matter what religion
Or even without
It is love and understanding where it is about

It is time to my voice
It is time for human noise
I know I am not the only one
Let’s stand up together, we are so strong

No money or violence can dictate our life
With love and understanding, we will survive
Be brave and let the fear disappear
Let’s fight for peace, respectful and sincere

© HaFri – 29 01 2017

Fly away, my little friend
Fly through the sky, until the end
Feel free to see the mountains
Feel free to taste the sea

And, if you can, share it with me
Show the amazing sunsets of our dreams
Tell about the beauty what is everywhere
Find the courage and hope, the care

Fly over walls, fly high in the air
Sing about peace, everywhere
Be a dreamer, give me the strength
To fight for love, until the end

Fly away, my friend, far away
Pull yourself together
‚coz you know the world is better
Then scared and narrow minded say

© HaFri – 29 01 2017

Sometimes I am wondering
Why people are so full of hate
It makes me clueless pondering
About the world that we create

When hate finds us
It will blind us
At that moment we
Shall not clearly see

Where we walk
About what we talk
We might think that we can
While being ruled by a tyran

We can not expect from who is blind
A proper way to find
Only who opens up their eyes
Can see the difference between the truth and lies

The dark clouds starts loosing rain
History is repeating itselves again
Some say, it won’t be so bad
Some see, it is already worse as that

Let’s find the truth back again
Let’s give faith to every woman and man
No one wants this war, so stop it please
Give up hate, let love release

Is there any different in the water
Just because it is in different ponds?

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

© HaFri Poetry 03.10.2016


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

© HaFri Poetry 08.10.2016


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

© HaFri Poetry 10.10.2016


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


© HaFri Poetry 13.10.2016


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
© HaFri Poetry 14.10.2016
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

© HaFri Poetry 19.10.2016


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

© HaFri Poetry 19.10.2016


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

© HaFri Poetry 19.10.2016


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!

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??

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
