HaFri Poetry 12 2018

Traveling through the sky
With so much blue to fly
Amazing paintings are passing by

Sometimes I wish to touch
Some days I wish too much
Time glides away, in a rush

Most of the time, I spent with dreams
About a better world
And it seems
The more this dreams come true
The longer I dream of you


The sunshine is rare
But it still is there

When the light reflects
And the last rose has only one leave left
I realize how little is used
To shine beautiful

Don’t be sad, when you no longer can hold
Drop gently, remembering the words untold

Your beauty is catched, lives in my heart
Soon you will flower again
New leaves, new life
New light. We shall survive 
until then


Did you ever notice
That the darkness is darker
When you close the light
Did you ever see
How stars grow in the night
The longer you look, the more do sparkle
When I look up to the sky
And see the stars shining to me
I do know why
Every star twinkles with a tear
Every tiny light
For who we wish to be here
I’d wish I could kiss you
I count the hours until we unite
And when you are home again, 
Next to me, at the couch
All the sudden
There is no darkness anymore 
In the night


2019 Hello you old one
Time has come to change positions
You are passed
You are passed
Let me through
I am the new

2018 Yes, you number new
Not so long until it is time for you
Soon you will be the one to be
And I am just a memory

Let me look to my past
Now your time has come
I shall tell you
Where the things come from

I did some things stupid
I lost, things went wrong
I have no regrets
About what coukd be better done

And now I am at the end
But before you are getting in
I wish you all the best
Let the future now begin


Christmas 2018

It is the most wonderful time of the year….

For many people it also is the most stressfull time of the year.

For photographers it is the time of the year, that nature gets asleep, and the lenses are focussed at the light.  In Germany there are christmas markets at many places.  Herewith a selection of places that I visited this year’s christmas season.

Autumn activites

When you enjoy a walk in the autumn sun, and you all the sudden realize, that the deers have their autumn rituals as well.

I was fascinated, and could make endless photos.. Here a selection. Enjoy the power, and sorry, my lens is ‚only‘  a 260 mm zoom 😀 !

Zeche Zollverein Essen / Kokerei

Not that long ago, Germany has as well a rich coal producing history.

One of the largest squares were the Zeche, under the smoke of Essen (or the other way around)
After that the production was stopped, in the 70s, the area became at the UNESCO Architecture Memorial places.

Our visit to it can be settled in one word.  Huge.

Immense buildings, a view in the recent history.  I hope you enjoy the photos

And that’s it, folks.  There is so much more to photograph, and my challenge for next year is to photograph the missing links from this year, without struggling with a cold 🙂

Promenadekonzert NGK 2018

Neuss in August.

That means a LOT of music.

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

No music included, you should have been there!

Des Neussers Freud und Lust

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

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

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

Jauchzend schallt’s …

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

Jauchzend schallt’s …

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

Jauchzend schallt’s …

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

Jauchzend schallt’s …

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

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

Poetry July

On a hot summerday
The flower who did bloom so beautiful
Not even so long ago
Has transformed

The colours turned white
The seeds are ready for their flight
Waiting for the gently breeze
Or the rain
To be taken away
Away from where you were created

Some of the seeds
Will find a place
Where they can survive the night
Where they are safe for the chilly winter

When spring will come
And it will
They will grow again
to beauriful flowers
The circle of life

Every goodbye
Is a greet for something new
Empty places
Will be filled
And memories remain

When the roof will rattle, in the tower
And only the thing of evil is there to hear
When Alexa patiently wait for instructions
And no snoring will be heared again

I hear the wind whisper
Don’t be sad
The drama is over

And my tears will burn again
It was your final countdown then
You did fly away
On this hot summerday

I will miss you
Anywhere the wind blows

22 07 2018

Who will water Wonkys Garden
Now the sun is shining so hot
Who will harvest the breadbeans
Now our fearles leader is not

Shall Piran miss the snoring
THe last drama is spread
Life will be a bit more boring
Now your final countdown is said

When the storm let rattle your roof
There is no one left to share
Not a film review to proof
No more coffee, anywhere

Your music sounds forever
In the ones, for who you did care
Just like Freddie, you will live forever
Legends never die, anywhere

When dinky meows at your front door
And there is no one, to let him in
The mailman will no longer walk around
The circle is complete
In memories you will be found

THe wind will blow, my hair will get wet
And with the final countdown
I look up, and smile
for remembering you, and all of that

The show will go on, because it should
And I will miss you forever, Mister Mankyfoot
