Poem: Edges of the heart

can anybody count the number
of wishes falling stars carry?
or the secret talks of yearning
that were confided to the moon?
so many different versions of love exist
and we all search for the right one
to put balance in our life
to show us some new meaning
it may feel like falling of an aeroplane
when starting the first conversation
or it may be easy, trusting what will happen
once you cast away the shadows of the past
and let go the footsteps previous lovers left
all we really want is for someone
to warm the cold edges of our hearts
 And this is my 200th post here. That is all ;)

Poem: To a grandmother

it's been ages since the house last felt
the curious steps of a child
or parents sitting on the balcony
pondering at the end of the day
viewing the land beyond them
it still stands here, as a reminder
of lives that once lived here
this is the place you were born into
where you began your journey on this earth
a life that showed you many paths
but you were always strong
strange to realize I'd like to talk to you now
for when I was a child, you had a different role
and what did I know then of passing things
maybe it was best for you to leave and not see
how your family fell apart after you left
as if you were a glue holding them to each other

Poem: Letting go

as I search for the house of sun
to perish the sorrows of the past
the wrong doings that took place
I realize that we will always be learners
we are what we think
our thoughts flow like fish
either with the current or against it
but until we learn to master them
we can use a flash light to mark the blame
or a magic wand to lose ourselves
beliefs build up our realities
they are so easily accessible
from a fountain to a telephone
the path can have many peaks
and descents; it may feel like
it will never change
but all is there for a reason
when you stop to let go
and accept yourself
the direction will also change
