Iarla Ò Lionárd

My heart beat faintly And my efforts are weakened A grief too deep for words Fills my breast For I am to be banished From the fair hills of Erin Aimless my life then And tragic my fate I recall, my soul's delight In days gone by My love surrendered To your bewitching gaze Merciful God I would far rather perish Here with my own folk And my fair-haired boy The fair land of Erin Lies in bondage so brutal The sad, tormented Prisioner of her foes Is it her fate then To be forever weeping That proud little isle Of the saint and the bard? I should this my prayer To great God our Father Let death and destruction Be the fate of John Who banished so many Across the great water And parted forever My fair lad and me

Wieder ist Weihnachten

Wieder Weihnachten
und du
zündest ein Licht
am Rande des Tages
am Rande des Jahres
die Wege weiter
wieder Weihnachten
und du
hältst an am
geheimen Meilenstein
mitten im Raum

(Annemarie Schnitt)


Weisse Wolkenschiffe

Weisse Wolkenschiffe stehen still
am Himmels Ozean
kein Blatt bewegt sich 
kein Wind
nicht mal ein Vogel singt
die Welt hält ihren Atem an
kleine daunenweiche Vogelfeder 
schwebt vom Himmel
legt sich vor meinen rechten Fuß 
vielleicht schickt mir von dort oben jemand
einen lieben Gruß

This is timeless


 This is Timeless....

And people stayed at home
And read books
And listened
And they rested
And did exercises
And made art and played
And learned new ways of being
And stopped and listened
More deeply
Someone meditated, someone prayed
Someone met their shadow
And people began to think differently
And people healed.
And in the absence of people who
Lived in ignorant ways
Dangerous, meaningless and heartless,
The earth also began to heal
And when the danger ended and
People found themselves
They grieved for the dead
And made new choices
And dreamed of new visions
And created new ways of living
And completely healed the earth
Just as they were healed.
