​Daughter in my arms
People play along the beach
What more can one say?

Identical app

There is only one ‘I’ in the world
An identical app
Running on 7 billion brains
Spread by language
Never changing
Eternally now
Always thinking of other things

Think second

Breathe first
Think second

Life sideways

Looking at life sideways
Reveals the shadows that dance
Away from bright sunlight
The gentle tinkle and chime
Of an orchestra
Only noticed
When the soloist goes quiet

Long tides

Long tides of life
May draw us from forbidden stars
But even through the deepest fog
New lands still lure us
Onwards! Upwards! Do not rest!

Edges of perception

Rain in the jacuzzi
A toddlers feet in clear, cold sea
Wind whipping the sunlit tree tops
Around and above all we see
Is a beautiful contrast
A goldmine at the edges of perception

Warm rain

I would be angry
If the light were not so soft
Warm rain lashes down


Patch of wildflowers
Next to the roundabout
Wind blows
My heart moves with them

The discontent

The discontent I call it
Great or small
The only constant
In this roaming sea
I call a mind

Cursed beast

Time, that cursed beast
That makes you trade an ocean
For a muddy pond
Every moment of your life gone too soon
One hundred thousand little deaths a day
And once again tomorrow
