Bonn

Bonn is the former Capitol of (western) Germany,

and still a place ‚in the west‘  where a lot of imposant history is settled.

We made a photoshoot there, and have to return for ‚better shots‘  in the inner city,

when the buildings can be seen better..

Until we meet again!

Poetry February 2012

Confuzzled

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

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

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

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

Poetry November 2018

Colour your dreams
Drink the milk of paradise

And when things are dark

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

Food for thought

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

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

Now

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

Stepping forwards
With silent steps
Daylight dreaming
A visible tear

How I wish you were here

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

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

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

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

Nobody knows
How many years ago
Your boat brought you here

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

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

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

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

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

You were not lost
And we found you

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

Next morning you were gone
And your boat is still there

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

I wish a world without walls
A world, where evrry stone is used to build places of comfort.
A place to hide and share
A place, of what I can tell you,
Come in, it is safe and warm
Where we can enjoy our tea, with a smile
Because we prefer a coffee
09 11 2018

Look up to the bright side
Find the blue sky

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

Live your life
With ups and down
Survive with a frown

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

We Remember Progrom

November 9th 2018.

Music for this posting –  Max Bruch – Kol Nidrei Op. 47

Exactly 80 years ago did the Synachochen in Germany burn.

It was the start of a mass murder, initiated by the Nazis, at the jewish part of the population.

We should not wait, unti the snowball becomes an avelanche /lawine. We should detroy the rolling snow ball The avalanche can not be stopped, by no one.

 

Today we did memorize this, at the place where, exactly 80 years ago, the Synagoge of Neuss was burnt down, and the Jewish peaple were haunted.

We shall never forget, what happened. And never let happen it again.

Some photos,  and some thoughts in between.  I have chosen to stay back behind the crowd, not making the best photos.  I felt  that it was better to be part of the crowd.

Here the tekst from the official site of the city

 

Das neue Schild zum Denkmahl den ehemalige Judische Synagoge


Als ich nach Hause gelaufen bin, tief in Gedanken, kam ich an diese Erinnerung, am Rathaus  vorbei.

We remember the people in our city, that did not survive the war.

Niemals vergessen
Never forget

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 😀 !

Königswinter

In the middle of the nature areea ‚Eiffel‘, at the border of the ‚Siebengebirge‘,  Königsberg is situated.

A tiny village, for all known about his castle/ruine Der Drachenfels.

A visit at the first day of autumn holidaays, with summerly temperatures.  Keyword: People

Ruin /Castle Drachenburg/Drachenfels

Today we were

Markus, Hilde, Hans

Naturpark Schwalm- Nette

A wonderful piece of nature, close to the Dutch Border, in Germany.

De Wittsee. Where nature is as it should be.  The photos speak for themselves.

HaFri Poetry October 2018

How do I survive

My mind is free, and full of good
So many rules tell me what I should
And,what not
In case I forgot

Freedom is an illusion
We are chained at rules
We are ruled from fools

Chaos is all around
It is easily to be found

Rules and signs, lead me in any direction
But not closer to my goal
Are they really made to transform the chaos in perfection
Or does it leads us in a black hole

Break free from rueles, survive
Tear them down
Love the chaos
It is the story of my life

When the night wents to sleep
When the day wakes up

My footsteps
Are the only sound
How much I wish you around

Whilst the light gets more
And the darkness disappear
I count my steps
And the hours
Until you are here

The cold of the night
Shivers at my skin
The colours of the sky
Take my breath away
And I feel, a tiny little bit

like in heaven

09 10 2018

Never throw yourself away
Be brave, but not a fool
Glow into the night
Fight for your right

Be a star
For someone, far
Fade away the darkness
Be who you are

Never befriend with violence or hate
Live for love,
love and be great

11 10 2018

Slowly the night
Transfers into light

With every foodstep that I make
I trust the bridge
Looking forward to my coffee
And to what is left
In the fridge

When friends
Don’t talk anymore

Because they are trapped
By thoughts that lead away
From your mutual goals

When friends
Don’t listen anymore

While they raised their glasses
And drank the poisoned wine
Dream on, my friend, we won’t hurt you

When I do not give up
Believing in myself

I do not want, to drink your wine
Even not, when you turn your head away

When you fall
What will happen sooner then you think
I will be there
To catch you

And, at the same time
I continue to walk my way
Different roads
Not like before

May the pain be less
Then I fear
May the white power of love
Always be here

Make a wish
Share a kiss
Enjoy life as it is

Dreaming of
The one you love
Close your eyes
And realize

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

Give it time to share

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

© HaFri 27 10 2018

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

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

Invisible waves travel
With the speed of light

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