Starfishes
or silver shells,
sea glass pebbles,
blue-green diamonds.

A lost dolphin’s dream,
an angel walking on water,
or maybe the key that opens
all forgotten sandcastles.

Will we ever know
what a child
running on the beach
is looking for?

Silent Prayer

no wrath
no blame
no hate no fight
just a flickering candle flame
a silent prayer with open hands
words of light and flowers of peace left
at the serene place where
murdered Innocents
rest

A different way

On the bank of the river Fantasy
I got some really good advice
from a young and wise
willow tree.

Always try to see
the visible world
in a different way,
it said in a thrilling whisper,

every blessed day
feast your eyes
on the purple beauty of the Unseen,
don’t be afraid of grey clouds,

paint the sky orange, dare to disobey
and let your imagination run wild
as if you were still
a Child.

Iron Mask

Faceless witnesses
lost in a sad masquerade
we all have to wear
an iron mask,

but there’s no reason
to hide our weaknesses,
they only are
our future strengths.

Let’s open our eyes
we’ll see a flower Garden!
Naked children of the Sky
always go to Heaven!

Fureteventura

Absolutely no one
believed the dream fisher
when he told people about stars
floating on crystal clear waters,
turquoise waves of light,
and bright constellations
that had obviously survived the Night,
yet everything he said was

absolutely true.

Shiver of Light

as the Sun was disappearing
below the Horizon
the Sea suddenly felt

a shiver of Light

then the Lovers heard
a Wave full of stars
uttering

the true name of the Night

Cathedral

he who makes his heart
a cathedral of light
has nothing to fear from
the shadows of the world

he who knows
how to see with
the eyes of the Heart
will discern its true colors
