"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry


self portrait seeking selfI have lost my way often lingering on cursed unknown streets
Hoping to find the invisible path that leads to you.

I am grateful for the gift of being alive
For the roses I bewilderingly find blooming under your blue sky.

When night comes, when my eyes cannot close
They can sometimes seize the star that lights up your dreams.

As it twinkles high above you, almost fading,
The distance to you means nothing anymore.

One day when my soul will look for a place to hide and to rest
It will find the shadow concealed between your loving arms.

    nicht achtend meine Unwürdigkeit
    strahlend dein Antlitz, wärmend,
    tragend mein zerbrochenes Sein
    noch in der Dunkelheit
    in der ich mich verbarg vor dir.
    noch in die Dunkelheit
    in der ich dich vergessen wollte
    trägst du mir nach dein Licht,
    in meine Finsternis.
    wo mein Licht verlischt
    strahlt das deine,
    kann ich dir begegnen.

    • Alles, was Du siehst,
      Ist was Du wirklich bist
      Schönheit allein sieht Schönheit
      Licht allein reflektiert das Licht.

      Danke vom Herzen Andre.

    “…alles was wächst und kriecht und fliegt schuf er, und mich
    und mein auge in dem er sich seiend erkennt: ich
    und er aug in aug oder tod, gebunden ans bleierne rad.”
