Inside my skin

Inside my skin

It is quality
more than a talent
one specific, characteristic
feature of my face.

I see, I saw
it coming, what does not
have a place
outside of your world.

I feel, your skin,
deeper than the day
inside my lovely skin
in and out my soul.

How I watch

How I watch

I have been an ordinary woman,
all of my life.
As time goes by,
I see spirits
on the streets.

My country, my land,
my music are not, very far away.
I watch all my numbers under my soul,
in the early morning light,
when life is best.

It is
it was
a matter of meaning
God ask me, how
why I see All
except all which is left,
in the heart of a writer,
not an author or poet

just, hear the wind
the way without a breath of air.

In his mind

In his mind

It is warmth, that I am feeling, now.
It is not a game or contest
but a match.

Although, I am small and not very tall,
I have taken my position in the Goal.
I did not think, twice.

A member of a team, regards her team
and members, otherwise.

I do not ask, what’s the risk, or worry.
I know, there is only one goal, a purpose
and a master knows

how to catch the last Wings.

Quiet and silent

100_8228

Quiet and silent

I have been living in a family,
in which silence is the most familiar word.

I have been wondering my streets,
ever since my youth.

Children of other families have and show
other kinds of behaviour, I do not always
appreciate, and I did not.

Even though, you have been raising
youth in your way, it is not a part
in my futuristic way.

Because of my special position,
strong and weak
on the very same time,
I listened to sounds
stronger than silence.

I have seen how birds fall in the sky,
because I have my food, at a later moment.

In my team, the members are
no longer members.

The moment, as if it All appeared
to stay quiet, an angel
loved and loves her deep silence.

After one

After one

It is a word.
One word after
one word.
Responsibility can be
easy as I am.

One and one make
more than one,
ever could be
and lasts longer
than one.

It is hard
when it is easy.

It is worth
when and if
my value towards
universal life is more,
much more
than one dark night,
one shadow of love
one light
that gives
after one.

Certain blue depth

Certain blue depth

Harmony rests
in my soul
deep silence
was touched
when you were there.

All of my life
harmony breathes
inside my body
but the spirit is a fire
that levels water.

A certain blue depth
was to be seen,

I know that it
is a simple truth.

Forgotten time

Forgotten time

In those times, that Time
I was having fun, but some people
had lost sight on their children.

In history, in ages of evolution
I saw some pictures and not photographs
in books and gardens, but I lost the card.

When I have and read a map, time is forgotten.
The images will be remembered, one day
but I am not there, on your testimony.

You see, I have some other interesting books
I still read in my private time
and I like not love it, in my way!
