About Me openminded, independent, sometimes I am a dreamy person too. I am on my spiritual path, learning about how to recognize, embrace my shadow and just on my way to live untamed.

For my beloved friend David

How shall I hold my soul so it does not
touch on yours. How shall I lift it
over you to other things?
Ah, willingly I´d store it away
with some lost thing in the dark,
in some strange still place, that
does not tremble when your depths tremble.
But all that touches us, you and me,
takes us, together, like the stroke of a bow,
that draws one chord out of the two strings.
On what instrument are we strung?
And what artist has us in their hand?
O sweet song.
(Rainer Maria Rilke)

I find myself in this poem

Forest Song
The sounds and hues around are fading;
How soft the winds caress the forest
and pluck its foliage like a florist:
I treasure gentle Death parading.

To quiet lands the journey's tending:
The time of love has been degraded,
sweet calls of birds have slowly faded
mongst dried-up leaves in calm descending.

The birds are gone, their South was calling.
Above the fallen leaves now hover
their nests, no longer needing cover:
The tired leaves are always falling.

In this old forest's rustling leasure
I seem to hear it softly saying
that all this dying and decaying
is just exchange of secret pleasure

(Nikolaus Lenau)
