Poem

unsymmetric

My laptop-free time over Easter was not free of writing. On Easter Sunday, I wrote this poem:

unsymmetric
or
energy crisis

roots
ripped off

no roots
no hold
no ressources
no energy

branches
reaching
aimless
in the sky

leaves
falling
useless
in the abyss

searching
for hold
searching
new roots
searching

where from... where to...

The start of the year 2022 was an emotional rollercoaster for me - I want to share some of it in a series of posts with the title "woher & wohin", i.e. where from and where to.

The series of texts will be a mixture of on the one hand texts that I wrote in February and March and on the other hand poems written by my Mum. These poems are in dialect and were published in the book "Löcher im Nest" in 1987. Although the poems are more than 35 years old they are still topical today.

thoughts of us

bittersweet memories

for L.W.

your words
of affection

my words
of destruction

a kiss
that never happened

a future
that only existed
in dreams

still
you are always there
deep down
in my memories
in my heart

sometimes
thoughts of us
are bubbling up

Feeling Change

Here we go  -  the first poem. I wrote it December 9 last year. Today, I found finally time to combine it with a nice photo. Big thanks to Dani that she let me use for this her photos from La Palma

Already when writing it the poem was bilingual. There is a German and an English version - they are no translations, instead I wrote the poem in two languages independently (and also slightly differently). 

Feel free to look also at the German version by switching the language of the website.
