Back by popular demand... or the COVID-19 situation!

In any case, I am doing more English and German readings the next couple months. Together with the PEN Club Austria we will do some more diverse readings, too.

Selbstvertrauen

ein Gefühl von Selbstvertrauen
erfüllte sein Wesen.
Er konnte berge versetzen

nichts konnte ihn bezwingen
er lachte!
er lachte!
das Biest der Melancholie war besiegt
sein Wille war frei…

 

Confidence

a sense of confidence filled his being
he could move mountains
nothing could overcome him
he was laughing!
he was laughing!
the beast of melancholy was defeated
his will was set free...

"Learn from me"

 

Autumn throws leaves

 

receiving Winter's snow

 

falling of apples

 

and chestnuts

 

fill the storage

 

 

 

whispering trees

 

"We let go,

 

so you may be full.

 

Take my limbs

 

for your fire."

 

 

 

Selflessness of nature

 

shows us the

 

nature of selflessness

 

which helps us through

 

cold times

 

where all are dead

 

that we may live.

broken...

 

 

~ broken

 

passion silenced

 

a heart so torn

 

no, you didn't know

 

life's just terrible

 

that way, you know

 

~ lost

 

love is a pathfinder

 

~ deserted

 

telling you, I love you

 

would make it worse

 

~ abandoned hope

 

maybe I will try

 

again tomorrow

 

enduring sand in my soul

 

 

 

 

 

 

 =======QR #04 ==============

 

shimmer of hope

 

 thousand voices speak confusion

 only a child

 so unwanted

 so abandoned

 

home has become a curse

chances so plenty as money

only the voices of the 

past

present

and of fear

echo on the walls

of his being

 

not even in the refuge of his soul

is there a quite place

somewhere full peace

or childhood
