Space beyond time

Generous gift
Is the silence
Deep inhalation
Full exhalation
A great space opens
To simply be
Outside of time

The horizon expands
An immense gratitude
Replaces the irritation
Created by the narrowness
From my tired mind

Be quiet
Breathe
And all that is
External to me
Gets smaller
Space beyond time

Espacio fuera del tiempo

Generoso regalo
Es el silencio
Inhalación profunda
Exhalación completa
Un gran espacio se abre
Para simplemente ser
Fuera del tiempo

El horizonte se expande
Inmensa gratitud
Reemplaza la irritación
Creada por la estrechez
De mi mente cansada

Silencio
Respiración
Y todo aquello
Externo a mi
Se hace chiquito
Espacio fuera del tiempo

Me and you

When I better know me
I better know parts of you
cuz I can see
that what I need you need too
In all honesty
I confess 
that you have flaws
but I have no less
The more I understand me
the more I understand you
And so
Like wild flowers in the meadow
We colour the world

A Spring day

I sit on the stairs one sunny morning
the trees dressed in early Spring fresh green
The sun on my face
On top of a tree
the constant song of a bird
Confirms what the trees are saying
It's been a long Winter
Like the birds and the trees
we thrive under the warmth of the sunlight
Only, our enjoyment seems more complicated
Motorboats in the fjord
Loud music in the forest
Motorbikes accelerating between the fields
A walk by the shore
reveals that with the enjoyment of the Spring weather
comes a good meal with friends
People are gone
but their waste bears witness of the good times enjoyed
A couple of ducks walking on the grass
I had never noticed they like to eat the fresh Spring herb
but what do I see
tiny peaces of plastic spread all around
my stomach sinks
And in a day like this
despite the joy of the fine weather
despite of the song of the birds
I can't help but think
We don't belong here
So much we disturb the peace

Simple?

When hurrying through everyday life
ground yourself
Through the difficult moments
ground yourself
While making sense of the input of the world
ground yourself
As you stroll or while seated in silence
ground yourself
Find that space
Find your inner strength
For you
For the world around you
