Poem: Inside a Star Sphere

 

Then I
look at the
starry sky,
the majestic
beauty
curving above
the planet.

What was I
just worrying about,
I don´t remember.

Poem: Wild Geese by Mary Oliver

 

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

– Mary Oliver

Poem: A Shamanic View

 

On a breathtakingly
beautiful winter day
twelve birds
are having a rest
on the white laced
branches
of the trees;
they look huge
compared
to the scenery
like do
ships on
an oceanic horizon.

Magical moment
of stagnation
gets saved
by the inner
camera,

in a past life
a native tribe
is quietly
tuning into
the Great Spirit.

Poem: Butterfly Paradise

 

two white

butterflies

dance together

across the

landscape,

their mutual

joy

and lightness

reflect

the inner

 

the chrysalis

phase

is gone,

did

I ever

think

otherwise

 

playfully

they

swirl

together

like

there

never

was

anything

dense.
