Today’s thought

Somebody else’s success isn’t away from yours

It is a sign of the great possibilities in life.

Signs

Should I take a plane to Tokyo

to fall asleep in a cherry park

Should I wake up in Tehran

and say ‘sobh bekheir’ my love

Or should I take the road to Berlin

and give up for the original sin.

Midsummer

She wanders in the meadow  

seven flowers in her hands.

On the way home,

a bonfire burns. 

She stops along the river 

naked, wets her hand. 

The gifts from the meadow, 

she places under her pillow.  

In the dream she sees,

her husband to be. 

Until the morning rises,

and so shall she.

For the one in the past

You opened my eyes for the world I wasn’t ready for
gave me comfort, love and a reason to die for
You made me feel like home too soon
held me close in a safe spoon
You taught me how to swim in deep water
until I suddenly started feeling like I was undercover.

I am sorry.

Do you remember

Do you remember,
you taught me to forgive
you taught me to accept what’s wrong.

So I will remember,
to forgive those in trouble
to accept the rocky road of life.

But will you remember,
the things you taught about moving on
or accepting the things you can’t change.
