Poems and reflections

For me, words were images of sounds first and foremost.

I remember very well how when I was a child I captured words that I heard from adults. I memorized them according to how they sounded. There was an inherent tone within the language that was familiar to me. When it came to speaking, I would recall a word through the particular fluidity of its intonation. It would then become easy to recall and I would use it.

Learn to Stand for Oneself

Animals stand for themselves when they meet one another

Animals stand for themselves when they meet one another
They dance the energy of war protecting their territory
Then they either separate or they make peace
Knowing in their instinct that such are the ways of nature.

We behave and strive to show the best we have
When problems arise, we stab one another in the back
And we wonder how we got blinded in the first place.

I am

I am the abundance rising to the new age.

I am the abundance rising to the new age
I come from the depths
Holding the gems
In a new flow
A new cycle
For a renewed growth
I am coming back
In joy
In Victory
Victory of understanding
Gaining wisdom
Carrying the wealth of transformation
Listen, listen
As you stand on the bridge
In between
I cross underneath
Healing, unifying
Joining the sea
Merging
Uniting alfa and omega
In moving, dancing and waving
To the vibration of renewal
Renewing life
Leading the pulse
