Butterfly in my window

There’s a butterfly in my window
In colors of all shades and hues
She flutters with her translucent wings
And softly blows away the blues

Suddenly I can hear my soul sing
I sense the place where I belong
In rhythm with the hum of the sky
I follow the tune of the song

Don’t want to hold on to broken trust
Or wanting to come back to you
I only want the freedom to fly
Just like the bright butterflies do

Brand new smile

It’s just me you are looking at
Plain and simple, just and fair
A nice lady with a ginger cat
A few friends who are worth my care

I have an honest smile to give
And a heartwarming word
Always the first to forgive
As long as it is not too absurd

My life is peaceful and serene
Nothing fancy or surreal
Just an easy-going routine
So let me tell you how I feel

When my joints start to ache
And any movement is hard to bear
When my perseverance is about to break
And I am in the depth of my despair

Trapped in a nightmare of violence
What I really want to do is scream
Drift in the middle of silence
And wish it was just a bad dream

I want to tear everything apart
With scratching nails on the board
To kill the madness of my burning heart
With the playing of a wrong chord

So if you need me and I am not there
Just wait in patience for a little while
I’ll be back, don’t know when or where
Like a phoenix with a brand new smile

Bounce

Driving down the road to happiness
I looked at you with an introverted smile
Because with every bump in the road
We came closer together mile after mile

I felt my love bouncing up and down
Saw the dazzling impact of the water drops
When they fell down in a sea of sand
With the certainty that our love never stops

It spreads out like the water’s rippling
When you cast unconditional love around
‘Cause what you freely give bounces back
And you know for sure when your soulmate is found

Blessed be

What makes the power of nature
The overwhelming view of the world
The urge of the goddess to nurture
The magic and wisdom unfurled

Why is it that we worship the mother
And the maiden is being praised
We learn to accept each other
A perfect blend of how we are raised

The love of the earth within us is deep
Our free spirited mind will help us through
And when our lovely earth is asleep
The worshipped goddess gives us view

Of a new awareness of what is worth
The sky, the ocean or the tree
And the constant renewal of the earth
For we are one, blessed be

Alone

I was so afraid, scared to death
Alone in the middle of the night
Even too afraid to hold my breath
Trying to hold on with all my might

The creepy sounds were all around
The dense fog dampened all sight
The eerie barking of a lonely hound
That kept me breathless with fright

Around the corner I should be secure
Just a few steps and then to the right
I know I am safe for sure
I finally stepped in the lantern light

Above all

Someone asked me who is God
And I answered I am God
So I need to decide for myself
If I will be impressed or be awed

I have to make my mind up
Will I hate or will I love
Shall I gather green dragons
Or just a simple white dove

Are the monsters going to haunt me
Or are the fireflies having a ball
It is just very simple
I love people above all

A vile prank

With severe shivering he stood
At the side of the river
Tired from his afternoon swim
His lips started to quiver

With searching eyes and a fierce look
He took a stare around him
Instead of enjoying nature
He stood there ever so grim

He searched under rocks and bushes
But nowhere he could detect
The pile of his clothes he left there
Since the last time that he checked

So where is the evil doer
The thug who did this vile prank
Wherever did he go and hide
He deserves a serious spank

A thousand dances

I dreamed last night that you would give me a fair chance
So I could hold you in my arms at the last dance
As if we danced a thousand dances together
We endlessly waltzed the night in summer’s weather

You left me breathless with your penetrating gaze
I felt empyrean in your soundless appraise
As if we spoke a thousand senseless wordless words
We shared a strong feeling of freedom, just like birds

But then you hurt me, you said I didn’t belong
You knew from the start that all was utterly wrong
As if a spiral sucked my heart into the void
It did hurt as if I was thoroughly destroyed

How strange that you led me first to heavenly bliss
Took me by the hand and gave me a soaring kiss
As if you guided me to the end of the shore
Then clipped my wings so I couldn’t fly anymore

A smile on my face

I saw a picture the other day
It puts a smile on my face
It was a kitten gone astray
I followed her just incase

She searched in the alley
To the right and to the left
She wasn’t dilli-dally
She didn’t look she was bereft

She conducted a deliberate course
She knew where she needed to go
Because the smell of the source
Was almost touchable you know

And yes finally there it was
In the corner behind a box
A tiny creature with sharp claws
Blowing and screeching like a fox

The little kitten was surprised
Of the enormous noise that was produced
It almost looked a wolf disguised
Her self-confidence was reduced

She meowed and fluffed her back real high
Then blew very hard as if to say
You can screech but you cannot defy
Today you are going to be my prey

The little creature then stood tall
Her head upright real proud
I am not afraid of you at all
And with a gorgeous smile she bowed

She fluffed her feathers and turned away
With pride in her tiny eyes
And when she was almost halfway
She shook her wings what was unwise

Because that little hesitation
Caused a stir in the little cat
And with great dedication
She jumped on top and that was that

She cleaned her whiskers and her paws
And with a big smile on her face
She stretched her tiny claws
From the little bird there was no trace

So if you see a little kitten
Don’t ever think she is incapable
Because there has never been written
That a kitten can’t be inescapable

The Blob

When I woke up this morning
I stepped into a world unknown
And during this time aborning
The life I knew was blown

I must admit I am a bit derange
A bit irrational and crazed
But for me, that is not strange
It is just the way I was raised

On the night of my sleepwalk
I found a few brushes, a lot of paint
A number of pencils and some chalk
I started doodling unconstrained

In the daylight, I saw what I had done
I created a massive thingamabob
The craziness I had spun
It was a giant blob
