The Birth of a New LightThe days are cold, the nights grow dark.
The garden has now turned grey.
The icy chill is freezing lake as well as bark.
The first snow has fallen earlier today.
The days are grey, the nights are long.
The garden has now turned white.
But from afar I hear a song
And see a wonderous light.
Up in the winter's dark night-skies
I see a bright new shining star
And in the air a great song lies.
The light seems not so far.
The night - it is the Christmas night -
It has come round now at last.
It turns all the darkness bright.
It gives the world a joyous sight.
It strikes for me a newborn light,
Embraces me with all its might
Before the night is passed.
The days are cold, the night is gone.
A bright and new sun rise.
The darkness of the past is done,
Joy in the morning lies.
Four ElementsFour angels hold the Earth into the light.Four Elements9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
They look at us. We do not see them.
I sit in the middle and I feel myself small.
They look at me, sublime and subtle.
The wind blows from the East, the fire from the South.
From West the water flows, from North the earth glows.
Four elements, surrounded by light –
God sends love; we do not feel it.
Angels are wise; Angels are quiet.
I can only hear them if I really want to.
They love and protect the Earth so much.
Also us, God’s children – billions and more.
We are like one being – from above, from far.
The soul of humanity wears a golden gown.
For God we are joy – we carry His light.
He sees us as a whole when He talks to us.
One has ardor, another one takes it easy;
You are close to the water, a rock resembles me.
We are not good/evil, we are energy.
We balance in universal harmony.
Four angels hold the Earth into the light.
They look at us. We do not call them.
Start calling them. They are at hand immediately.

Winter Moon in the ForestDeeply imprisoned in white frost,Winter Moon in the Forest2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The winter forest lies covered with snow,
Tells of long gone times,
Lapsed into the distances of the forests.
The wind sings silently past melodies,
Sensible while fading away,
When I listen in the silence
And see through the cold.
White flakes are driven by the wind.
Trembling leaves are blown with snow dust.
And some kind of sadness
Is weeping crystals here and there.
And a chill lies in the air.
A snow that once was a bud
Is falling on Earth's soil.
In the bright shine of the full moon night
Filigree trees clad in black form
A lane along the edge of the forest,
Dream themselves into the silence of the glow,
Whose shades dip in the
Tender blue of the snow
And accomplish the grace.
Silent lies the forest,
Wrapped in a white dress.
Soft wind is blowing tender flakes
From proud green fir-trees,
That tower majestically in front of me.
They whisper gently to me
An icy but lovable greeting.
No sound disturbs the peace,
Only the wind interrupts the tranquil
Woodland BirthIn the starlight I walked along, loaded with thoughts.Woodland Birth2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Over the dark forest the dew sank soon.
The morning was still far.
I could hear the noises from the distant village.
Deep into the forest I was roaming underneath the starry sky.
I followed a path like velvet and moss, took off my shoes.
The breath like a foggy breeze, like fire without smoke.
My blood pulsated in my veins.
Silent world seized me –
My language faded,
And like on the first day – so easy, free and unequalled
I freed me from my self and became eternal.
The oak, so high, was reaching to the stars.
Higher and ever higher I climbed.
Mounted through space and time.
Died my death and gave birth to my self.
And from the stars to the Earth I solemnly sank
Far away from my homeland world.
Sweet was the morning dew under the sky-blue.
Gently the morning wind rocked silent oaken child.
New was the world to me, young and royal.
It was the forest that brought me to life.
The first being that did not know earthen grief
Eyes in the ForestIn the wild wood, in the dark forest,Eyes in the Forest2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Beyond human eyes.
There lies the world under a magic spell,
The fog never evaporated.
The trees are tall and grey there,
They sway and lament.
Tales they whisper furtively
Of long forgotten elder days.
In mossy lichen and fern shrubs
Silently dance the elven folk.
They weave the veils of mist
And turn around in circles.
In the wild forest, at a dark place,
Hidden away from human hands.
There the old tale still lives,
Its secret never discovered.
Deep between stone and root work,
In a dark chamber,
A dwarf is forging with magic power,
Wields steadily his hammer.
And high up in dense branch entanglement
Two ravens croak silently.
Like a thought they fly,
Like remembrance, so wise.
In the wild forest is some strange face!
Suddenly it is soundless and cold.
A human walks there, he does not see
The eyes deep in the forest.
Star Child in WinterCarefully, I step on the white dusted grass.Star Child in Winter2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The frozen evening dew moistens me.
It is cold – I do not feel it.
Only the silence of the night is all around me.
My hair becomes entangled in an icy wind.
So that I fear to be blown away.
I reach out for the branch of a tree
To seek help and protection.
In front of me I can see the forest in awesome loftiness.
The trees welcome me.
Finally I arrive at the spot I am heading to –
The clearing – a spiritual place.
I stop in the middle of this circle –
Symbol of eternity, image of perfection.
I wait and only my breath can be heard.
Time seems to stand still.
Then, at last – the clouds flee
And unveil the radiating face of the moon.
Its illumination seems to cover everything
With liquid silver.
Shimmering gold is mingling among the
Silvery glittering night-blue sky.
Unnumbered stars are strewn into the night.
High up I lift my face.
My eyes catch the light of the moon and the stars.
I know that the time has come.
Determined I lower my head,

Now approximately seven years have passed
And I still miss you painfully.
You were my age, not older.
Not very young anymore but much too young to die.
You have been a good friend to me in this short time
of about two years.
You shared with me your grief and your pain.
Everything what you had experienced.
I was there for you, day and night,
Whenever you needed someone to talk to.
No distance was too far.
I called you at any time.
If I could succeed,
I would make the birds sing for you,
Would bring you a candle,
Nearly I was at your home,
But I did not know where to find the cemetary and your grave.
But my thoughts of you need no
material or virtual grave.
Your image is always in front of my eyes.
The image of a vital young woman,
A mother of two children
Who smiled and was happy.
But doom did not want
That you could remove all the stones,
Lining your way or put into your way.
Doom took you away,
Because it knew that you would not endure a natural death.

October Full MoonYour blood-red fruit in the sky let my soul flow,October Full Moon10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
You draw me slowly to yearning distances,
And while the crows’ croaks echo on foggy fields,
I travel to the stars, full of nostalgia.
The wind in the willows whistles with sorrowful flute tune,
And while I follow you to the destinations of our dreams,
I cast a glance at the scenery full of fruits.
From the depth of the earth, song and whisper raise.
Our love was already gone before it began.
I could only search but I never found you.
The sand of the hourglass vanished between our hands,
I had to get over the unavoidable farewell.
The gossamers of past dreams
Cover my thoughts like a web.
They make the brown-colored leafless trees shake
As well as my walk.
October full moon, take me with you on the journey.
Help me to fly to the other side of summer.
In a magical, eternal way
You and I will walk together under the fresh green leaves.

Breaking under the weight.
Fogs are spinning and spreading
Along paths and ravines.
Snowflakes fall softly like in a dream -
I wander silent through the limitless space.
And far away, world and time sink with me
Into the great white solitude.
In the evening, smooth dark wings
Spread gently blessing
Over all hills and forests
The comforting night.
Black bird of night,
My glance strikes you.
Far, immense far,
You are flying and you never come back.
Time stands still when I see you.
Gently the clouds pass by.
When day goes to rest
Then I want to flee with you.
Away, lost in the night,
Accompanied with your melody.
When day awakes,
Your symphony stays strictly hidden.
Black bird, please have mercy.
You are the fire, the flame, the glow.
Tears, doubts fall in the hope.
Foaming sea in eternal flood.

Perhaps the sun shows that we should also radiate like her.
Perhaps the night hides all our dark sides.
Perhaps the laughter takes away the pain and gives hope.
Perhaps the sea does not know where to spread, knows no bottom.
Perhaps the waves hit the shore, at low tide and high tide.
Perhaps the cycle of the sun, over hill and vale.
Perhaps the bothering dream, day and night.
Perhaps a balance tilts to the left or right.
Perhaps an uncertain decision, whether yes or no.
Perhaps is the dance rhythm of possibilities
Perhaps sits as deep as the sea of time.

For then the world would be completely dark or forever very pure.

Agatha Christie was the most successful criminal author of all time. Her stories about Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple have thrilled millions of readers for more than fifty years and some of her ingenious cases confused even her shrewdest admirers. But with her death in January 1976 she left a real life secret behind that was so amazing as if she had thought it out herself.
In December 1927 – when she was already a celebrated criminal author – Agatha Christie disappeared for nearly two weeks. The headlines of the papers announced the most sensational theories to a breathless circle of readers. Suicide, abduction, murder. The police was looking for any clues why she had disappeared – but in vain.
Agatha Christie was born in September 1890 as daughter of a wealthy American who lived with his English wife in Torquay, Devon. The family lived in luxurious means and Agatha received only few regular class

You comfort me,
Also in the greatest need.
My thanks are yours,

Never I would like to miss you.

Burnt in many dreams.
But from your ashes,
The diamond is forming itself.

Move myself to its radiance.
How the light breaks itself in that stone!
But I know there is another world
Some time in infinity.
Some time I will meet you again,
In the light dwelling of continuity.

The light of the moon ... pale and cold.
Rustling ... the wind ... in ancient trees,
And fog light, full of lost dreams.
Then I saw them bloom along the way:
Star flowers ... - bright as a shining ray.
Then horror seized me with ice-cold hand,
Long ago, every child in the country knew:
When in the Fairy Forest at night the star flowers bloom,
Turn away and try to flee,
Because the fairies there, they have no heart... -
Their games only cause grief and pain.
Already fear and horror drove me away,
Out of the forest, to a safe place.
Then I saw a light in the distance... -
Unreal and cold, but it did not frighten me.
I went towards it and perceived no longer
That the forest was full of fairy laughter... -
A strange longing crept into my mind,
Let me forget the fear and dragged me there.
There was a chilling air surrounding me,
The light, it led me deep into the forest.
I had lost my way a long time ago,
I felt a strange painful sensation... -

Smoothly on the moss –
When I raise my eyes to the firmament
And the Milky Way is reflected
In my mind like silver –
When the lucid fluxes of my heart
Flow upwards and fill the space –
The universe is trembling in joyful refreshment.
I whisper your name,
Draw you with my heart
And receive your light on the ether.
We rise over the horizon
Of profane and mortal narrowness
And dance to the sound of the heavenly harp ….
The midnight dance of eternity.

On a world so clear and pure.
One who has never seen the light of the stars
Has never experienced how marvellous is the happiness
To look in the far distances
And to revel in the spheres.
Power and force are very important.
Wisdom and beauty are very weighty,
But the most beautiful in the world
Are the stars at the canopy of heaven.
To rove through the woods in the starlight,
To touch nearly the horizon,
Through the wide fields and plains,
Happiness will be almost prepared for you.
To experience love and happiness is fantastic,
All who do not devine this are great fools,
For who does know where the universe will guide us
With its stars in the firmament.
The flowers sprout, the trees stretch their boughs widely,
Sundry birds build their nests there.
What is of continuation, what of duration
Even in the green dress of nature?
Demonically the night breaks in,
Then the shine of the stars will be sparkling brightly,
The darkness does not last forever,
