Poem: Cozy Rain



Rain is tapping
its cozy rhythm
on the window.
I feel peaceful,
safe and
another time,
from another
life, is
wrapping me
in a soft

Rainer Maria Rilke: Early Spring

Pierre Bonnard: Early Spring (Little Fauns) /wikipaintings.org

Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows’ wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents. Tendernesses,

hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees.

– Rainer Maria Rilke

Flower Symbolism: Mystical Orchid

Odilon Redon: Strange Orchid /wikipaintings.org


Deep in the valley, a beauty hides:
Serene, peerless, incomparably sweet.
In the still shade of the bamboo thicket
It seems to sigh softly for a lover.

– Taigu Ryokan

I seem to be bumping into orchids so often (or they into me), so I´m sharing the pleasure with you all.

when two people
understand each other
in their innermost hearts
their words are sweet
like the fragrance
of orchids

Orchids in Bloom

In all things thought seen…
The world has once again conspired
Culminating in a soft petals bloom
Capturing, the eye of man
Illuminating hope in the darkest room

It is this spark, this aura, this radiance
This ignition of inner quality
Amid viscus conflagrations, striking in its purity
Breaching through your outer identity
Nascent, your inner beauty shines, intensely

Lighting the path of life and love

Snow Angel



When did I become so dignified
that I can´t make a snow angel
on the side of a public jogging route
on a sunny winter day

In the twilight zone
I am sneaking back,
I make an angel and
another one to be her mate

Pastel Sunday



If I would paint Sunday
it would be of pastel colors
soft and harmonious,
gentle and light

a smile with no reason
peace that just is
with no demands

the heart as light
as a fairy´s wing
