‘Big Brown Eyes’

When I look into those big brown eyes

The moon descends

My spirit flies

Away towards the darkness of the skies

 

Unwillingly, I fall deep down

Into the well that holds the memories of the past

The world disappears, now all I see is brown

I’m no longer me, I’m no longer mine

 

Just when these deep dark eyes

Look back at me, surprised

I know I can trust them, they don’t need a prize

Through them I can see the soul – so clear, so nice

 

Why can’t I stop looking into your eyes

And guessing your thoughts, guessing your plans?

So strange the fate’s plan can be sometimes

I’m left holding on, trying to see the world through those big brown eyes

‘Was it a dream?’

Was it a dream?

The beauty, the mountains, the lake

Was it a dream?

Constant happiness, joy, no stress

Was it a dream?

Dark brown eyes looking so sweetly into mine

Was it a dream?

But then above the clouds I fly…

 

Can we ever keep a dream

Or will it always die

And make us search once again

Not knowing for what and why?

‘Breathe’

LausanneOpen your heart

Embrace the world

Feel the joy of breathing

Fresh air in your lungs

 

Broaden your horizons

Notice the infinite possibilities

Spreading in front of you

Every single day

 

We are here for a moment

So why not have some fun?

Play with life

And spread your love around

 

Share your heart

With all the creatures of God

Smile and have a laugh

Don’t waste your life being sad

 

Do what you want

Be whoever you want to be

Choose your destiny

Have the courage to live

 

If you don’t let the rules suffocate you

If you don’t let anyone kill your dreams

You will see that the world is a miracle

And every second is worth living

‘Perfection’

The water is moving so silently

Whispering the story

Of unlimited bliss.

The sun leaves the trace

Of warm sunbeams

On your skin.

The wind messes up your hair,

Plays with the trees.

It’s a delicate breeze.

The guitar is playing

A few feet away,

People are smiling through the lyrics.

You take a deep breath,

Lose yourself in the moment,

Life is perfect.

‘To Be’

To Be is to exist,

To feel but not be present in the human understanding,

Not to have a purpose apart from the eternal nowness.

 

To Be is to flow

With nature, with the universe,

To realize the depth of the words: ‘I am’.

 

To Be is to have no words,

To enjoy the neighbourhood but stay in remoteness,

Move freely without a particular path.

 

To Be is the beauty

Of being nobody, nowhere,

Of floating in the pure state of realization.

 

To Be is to meditate

Into the wonders of the mind’s antipodes

And to keep that state forever in the unconditional existence.

 

To Be is to acknowledge

The profound beauty of stillness and solitude

And of the silence of surroundings…

‘In Search For More’

Original caption from NASA: "S103-E-5037 ...

Leaving the world with a smile on his face

Flew the spirit on the chilly winter’s embrace

‘Goodbye my tricky life

Go on with your unexpected dive

The space is waiting with its mysteries

So many roads to choose with no limits’

He knew the sweetness of blossoming trees,

The kisses of love, the pleasure he would miss

But the joys of the Earth were not enough

He wanted so much more to discover on his path

What he did – a lunacy, that’s what they called it

A mourning crowd was an illusion in not that little bit

The emptiness he did not feel anymore

When he realised he had it all in his hands, his proper lore

He left his cat, the rain and depressing fall

And then he announced, ‘’tis my final call’

‘Observer’

Snowflake 1

In a careless whisper

In the ticking of a clock

In the fastest heartbeat

In the wind’s blow

 

There is something magnificent

If you listen carefully

Life begins to make sense

There’s more color to it

 

In a random observation

Of the world outside

In the falling of the leaves

In a graceful dance of a cat

 

I notice something

And wonder if it is insanity

I notice myself

What a strange magic

 

In the feel of snowflakes

Falling onto my cheeks

In the touch of cushion

Early in the morning

 

I can sense your presence

Barely recognizable

Something you cannot feel

If you don’t reach for inexplicable

 

In the taste of aromatic coffee

Before a hard day

In the piece of chocolate

Melting on my lips

 

There comes experience

Of yet another sense

How wonderful world could prove

If you pay attention to every detail and little piece

‘The girl of the sea’

A wave breaks onto Carmel River State Beach

Wind playing with her hair

Thoughts racing through his head

Sun hiding behind the clouds

 

He’s taking her hand

She drops three tears

Shadows take them in cold embrace

 

She’s changing her mind

He’s waiting with blank eyes

Crow breaks the silence

 

She’s breaking his promise

He’s breaking her heart

Sand covers their feet

 

She turns to kiss him

He tells her he would miss her

The voice says: ‘Sheer lies’

 

She knows it’s true

He pretends he hasn’t heard it

Lightning breaks the skies

 

She pushes him aside

He falls onto the rock

Sea caresses her skin

 

She jumps into the waves

He looks at her half consciously

All remains still in the darkness

‘Muses come instead of sleep’

Fairy – "Take the Fair Face of Woman"...

Yesterday I was hoping for some sleep

But the muse came and took the lead.

She took me to the land of ambrosia,

Of milk and honey, sweet scents.

She filled my mind with reveries

Instead of thoughts of the day.

She took my hand with gentle grasp

And gave me a pen decorated with wild feathers.

Then one plume fell onto the ground,

The flower of fern grew on the floor

And despite the calmness of the weather

I couldn’t fall asleep any more.

‘Harmony’

Harmony

Just like Buddhists singing mantra

Just like flowers blossoming in spring

I’m looking for my harmony

Just like jazz singer in a niche club

Just like dancing rumba near the sea

I’ve found my perfect harmony

With a yoga practice in the early morning

With all worries forgotten and left behind

My harmony was finally found

With nothing that can break it

With my mind peaceful and my soul free

I fly away in my lovely harmony

Buddha, Kamakura, Japan
