The Snail Walk

awakened in early light
your breath beside – a soft breeze
dove purring in delight

Today is the World Poetry Day … so I have been busy … though tired … and I don’t know why. Didn’t go to the Philosophy Cirkel tonight but I bought a ticket for my eldest grandchild so we will go together to Budapest soon. I’m so looking forward this.

engine of energy
starting the dolphins jump
soon followed
the solitary swimming
always leads to company

In the morning breeze … it starts …

in silent content
morning breeze starts
with a sigh in end

… and I remembered my haiku about the snail … that popped up before sleep … and … was still there … in the morning …

a lovely breeze
carried along the night
by my dream

… my snail haiku …

My Love!

standing strong
in full bloom dressed purple
my heart bow

My feelings for nature and reading the post … the haiku was strong and wanted to be presented first. And I just follow my feelings and instincts …

the squirrel
grabs the fir cone in delight
a pulse of love

There are so many kinds of love in nature … a richness … a generosity … sharing … cykling … consensus … collusion … movements …. I will call it pulse.

(sometimes its difficult for me to find the right words, I’m sorry for that, I so wish my English was better)

The pulse of nature … the pulse in nature … the pulse out of nature …the pulse of grows and evolution in nature … that extraordinary energy and power … the pulse … only nature possesses …

osprey wings shiver
when ocean depth roar desperately
bay lost again
nature sometimes takes away
for new to soon be welcomed

… and I am just an observer … but also a part … which goes with a responsibility … for all of us.

my deepest love
for that mighty creativity
only in nature
when meeting the you
only to pulse together

… could be read … ‘my love’ … instead of … ‘the you’ …

My love!

Body – Earth – Air

I get a little disturbed by god-talking I must say … I would like a totally secular world … I really would … sure of a more human friendly and earth friendly if so …
-Religions twist people’s minds! … for sure, I think.

putting belief
outside your self – unforgivable
betrayal
new gods like ancient
are for leaving behind

It can be seen everywhere … and during all times … another way is to experience the nature … the pure nature … close as macro and micro … calm and furious … friendly and aggressive … with open eyes … you will find its spirit everywhere …

in the eye
of hurricanes and bees
a nature heart

… sometimes harder to read … but there always is an understanding to find out … a problem to be solved … for new problems to find …

with knowledge
you may find wisdom to act
sustainable
for tree roots to run old
for bees to pollinate

… far out and deep down … and also in between … start close … body – earth – air ….

Now I think … I should be more poetic … relate more … picturing more … using nature … symbolic way … I should …. but …

… sometimes mood is like that … and sometimes like this …

Isn’t it amazing how the raindrops are kept … and sooner or later … running together …  down … out for life …

Good Feel

When I read a blog post, an article, or what so ever … I often react to something … and my brain goes spinning … with questions … or statements … or just testing different thoughts … when reading Hoods poem … one line … struck me …

so wrong
to believe desert contains
no life

… “Or in the wide desert where no life is found” … there are so much life in the desert!

The desert is so beautiful … hard to live in … of course … in one moment so dry and looking so unfriendly … to in next moment flower in all kinds of life … so amazing …

Then I have been thinking a lot about “the spirit of our the self consciousness” … and I found Kristjaan’s tanka so wonderful … (actually I liked it more than Hood’s) …


old barn
in the middle of the field
so desolate
a playground for the wind
deep silence of no where              (c) Chèvrefeuille


… I think … yes we are like islands … in the middle of nowhere … sometimes … we have to learn and act so we can trust ourselves … gain the self consciousness … and at the same time be aware of … that everything can be wiped out next second … we are in need for that essential … ability of … humbleness … then we earn … the silence …

a solid grain
left billions of billions
to travel
the journey of life cirkels
to meet other billions of …

… life and what it brings … wow … if you let it … the world when being young … and the world now … wow … your ‘you’ then … and your ‘you’ now … such a journey … and still are … wanting to learn more … and more … deeper and wider … from maths to philosophy … from corals in the sea to the outer universe … noticing the patterns … patterns of structure … patterns of behavior … patterns of mind …

holy three
everything’s being the spirit
life of the spiral

… my thinking … so often in my holy three … levels … body – heart – brain … and now I think of a quote by a bright lady … it’s sharp indeed …


Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.”
Eleanor Roosevelt


… I’m coming closer … the end … I’ve found my place for peace and silence … but I will not … yet … be quiet …

… though I am the kind … Susan Cain named …. “QUIET” …

… and I like it so much … always have … though sometimes challenging … I like that too …

-What now! … have I written? I think … well … it turns out as i turns out … and I’ll handle it along the way … gaining some more self consciousness along the way … too …

Good Feeling - me

Every … but One

Like the magma … in body Earth … always is in move …

that deepest
thought about you and life
rests in silence

… also the ‘I’ … inside the body … is in constant move …

… like everything …

in the unknown
you need a compass – star
guide in silence
every sunflower – but one
turn towards the sun

… almost everything … everybody but one!

Every sunflower but one ...

Checking the Length

When on my walk along The Danube today … the wind was strong … but warm … it was upwind … and I usually don’t like … upwinds … dead winds … or head-winds at all. When I go by bike I hate it.

Today I found I liked it a lot. In that new experience I wanted to stay and enjoy. So I did! I imagined the wind brought new thoughts into my head. Suddenly it did. The wind brought back a thought I often had when very young … walking home in the night … me and the stars … I remember I almost used to feel dizzy at that time … thinking about … “am I really?” ….(=do I really exist?) … incomprehensible great … universe … earth … me …

about the everything
I can understand nothing
humbly bowing
at the same time I realize
everything emerge out of the nothing

… which leave me … with the question … “nothing”? …

nothing is
nothing will be – once
nothing (really) was

Cannot decide about last line … with or without ‘really’ ….. HELP!

About Hafiz … I feel the poem is linked so much to a special time … of how to be … and that is not now … in our time.
I don’t believe in … wiping out … efface … oneself … and I definitely have no wish to “be rewarded with boundless pastures and eternal rest” … I live here and now … and I will do my very best … being the best myself … as well as being humble I react … and act …

Most humble … I think …. I am with my camera and macro lens … which makes it possible for me to see even the tiniest insect feet, feelers and more. How I marvel at such wonders!

From the nature … through my Canon … right into my dear Mac … I can see … what wasn’t seen …

feet and feelers
walking the life – feeling
where is nothing?

feet and feelers
experience life – wondering
where is nothing?

Carpe Diem: #1169 Humble.


There is ONE thing …

Behind a coward man – there is a stronger woman. Ready to put things right. I think this is rather common in society.
Of course there also is the opposite.

People will never make me lose interest – for humans. And we all share our mother –  Earth. There is no life without people. But! Sadly and probably life would be better for Earth without humans.
You know – humans is my favorit subject – has always been. Written a lot about it before.

In my view … every man and woman … every child … boy and girl … are pieces. A lot of pieces! Really a lot.
I just put the pieces together!

piece by piece
put together – makes
the picture of you

That’s my life challenge.
-It was my challenge working with children and youth as teacher. These special children and youngsters demanding so much more …being more vivid  … than the mainstream. I loved it! I really loved – working with these growing humans. At the same time I hated the school system – the political side.
-It was my challenge as lecturer as well – working with special teachers to be.
-It is my challenge in life.

I am well trained during life experiences. Also life long education of course. Did never end taking university courses. In the end I choose distant. I rely on … and trust in … my intuition. Don’t know any time it failed. I have lots of doubts on the way … necessary doubts … doubts to be removed … and …  reset with facts … until then I go on putting the pieces together … one by one … finally the puzzle is complete … for what’s necessary … at that special time …

Being a behaviorist goes so well with life philosophy … and … along with never ending questions. I am so curious!

I’m so curious
I was about you too – now
I am not any longer
left with a sad taste
doubts became the truth

Reality. Just like … ‘facts rule’ … in life. You are your actions. You … yourself … makes the picture of you.
Realizing. That’s how I work. I am watching the situation … from above … when … at the same time … living it. That’s reality!

I love reality … too … 🙂 … it allows me to imagine …

I love to write my thinking … much better on writing it … than talking it … I think …

… and English is challenging me even more … I like that too …


Ps. I love people. I don’t always like their doings and their behavior. There is one thing I despise …
I really despise cowardliness!
