|Vacation memories from my trip to the Netherlands: from Heemskerk to Amsterdam, Leiden, Alkmaar, Groningen, Appingedam, Bergen, Bergen aan Zee, Kerkrade, Aachen, Maastricht, Valkenburg and Schleiden.|
Tears in the MoonTears,
In my eyes,
gently moisten my cheeks -
In dark night -
Glittering silverbeam in sky -
Mutual UnderstandingAccept also those who do not suit you.
Be there for each other.
Trust in that everything will go well.
Discover what is important and let off the unimportant.
Begin new, even if you failed yesterday.
Offer help for carrying to those who need your help.
Weeping WillowI feel the warmth of a summer day –
The sky so wonderful in blue,
The grass in saturated green.
Step by step
I come to meet you.
Along the way
So many thoughts,
So many words in my head.
The stony way becomes shorter
And I see you approaching.
To my left
The blue lake in which you are reflected.
I touch your leaves.
Weeping willow... Oh, weeping willow ... do you feel me?
Do you feel the scars burning me?
Please remove it!
I thank you!
Weeping willow... Oh, weeping willow... do you see me?
Do you see my silent tears?
Please take them away!
I thank you!
Weeping willow... Oh, weeping willow... do you understand me?
Do you recognize my courage?
Please support me!
I thank you!
You stand at the lake,
So quiet and calm –
For me it is a place so peaceful and wise.
You seem to be full of sorrow,
But this picture is an illusion.
Weeping willow... Oh, weeping willow...
You are my hold.
With you it never gets cold
In this world.
Your foliage hangs down sadly,
But it serves a
The BardOnly the luck of the bard was it
To reach the heart of a beauty with his lute.
In the castle court –
There where knights broke their lances
And where streams of red blood
Drenched the white sand.
Where swords clashed
He let swing the strings of his lute
Far above all ranks –
Yawning and exalted –
Stopped feasting her eyes not on
The fighting turmoil.
“Fetch him, that young bard!”,
Came from her lips.
The herald hastened and within a moment
This news reached the bard.
The bard was no rude smith.
He sang a love song to the woman …
"My dearest guest! Secret friend!
Reveal us the high art …
The harmony of your songs
In my favour!
How had your mouth shaped the words?
Why does the sound of your lute equal
The feast of harmony?"
The bard broke his silence soon …
And called it “SPRING MELODY!”
Already long time ago
The love song of the bard died away.
Then I heard in spring
How the young girls sa
Such a Love exists only onceSuch a love exists only once,
That dizzily intoxicates me and makes me happy,
That narcotizes me like a drug,
Which moves me to far realms.
My darling, in your heart dwells the sun,
Lets everything rise lovingly.
Kindness shines in your eyes
Like stars that will never sink.
Such a love exists only once,
So impetuous and enormously ardent.
It makes trembling my heart
And will never let me go again.
My sun, never leave me, please.
I cannot be without you
And I wither like the flowers’ splendor
When your light will not surround me.
Such a love exists only once,
And even if time passes quickly,
I will dream of it all my life,
Like one summer long of May.
Little stars, please show me the way,
Lead me carefully on my path,
So that I even find the way at night,
When once I will get lost.
Such a love exists only once,
Still fulfills me in my death.
In front of me I still see always the sun
When I behold the far sunset glow.
FriendshipFriendship means to give,
But also to take -
Solidarity in joy and sorrow.
Friendship gives hope
And grants happiness as well -
It is assistance in times of loneliness.
Friendship must grow,
You have to cultivate it -
By frankness and honesty.
Friendship means to love
And to be loved -
It depends on mutuality.
Understanding for the other -
Despite his weak points and fallability.
Friendship does not live on advantage
But on feelings -
On the same thoughts at the same time.
Friendship must hear,
Friendship must see -
The other's happiness, expectation and grief.
To open yourself for the other, to talk to him,
To be ready to simply listen to him.
To hope for the other, to live with him.
To swear him eternal loyalty,
Not to grudge the other something,
Even if you are losing it for yourself.
To love him as he is,
Just because he moves your heart.
Friendship develops in times of gladness,
It stands the test in times of solitude.
And if it is a true and deep friendship,
Elven HopeI have a dream
Of another world
Where no-one resembles the other.
But where all are one
In a world of diversity
That plants every flower at the right spot.
I dream of a world
Where hate is unknown
Either among individuals or the great nations.
There is only the appreciation of the others' life
At all their places.
I dream of a great sign
That will re-unite in joy
All once scattered.
Brother will not be angry with brother anymore
And everybody understands
That living is now the new dimension.
I see a new world
Where shining light nets
Spread like a shield across the Earth
From east to west and from south to north.
I dream of a world
That has forgotten the old one
With all the insanity and fury -
In which all humans have been purified.
And chastened in real humility
They stand up and move forward.
In this world
True love will
Seize again the hearts of humanity.
Men and elves -
Together we will cure every wound
That we once stroke ourselves
and our world in limitless rage.
Long poems mean more than 3 stanzas - based on topic of your choice, only free verse format.
If you have always wanted to know what your dream might have as meaning, I will tell you. Tell me your dream and I will tell who you are and how you are. Every dream has a significant message and should not be ignored.
Of course, I am obliged to silence. I have worked for some time as online interpreter but requests were growing over my head
I will start another trial. You cannot imagine how many people can be helped just by telling them what is bothering them and how to confront these problems.
Please sent me your dreams per note/message. You will get the answer per note/message too. I am always ready to answer question if there will be any.
Something's Missing: an anthologyThere are fifteen poems
ever since I was young,
I knew something was missing.
something wasn't… there
in my mind and in my body.
while others giggled through health class
and joked about the other gender's body parts,
I sat through it and tuned it all out.
it didn't interest me at all.
people tell me,
"you're just young;
it's understandable that you don't feel anything.
you just gotta meet
the right person,"
but I tell them,
"nothing will make me feel
something I wasn't born feeling,"
is it some genetic thing?
is it a mistake, a glitch in the code?
is it just completely random?
something I'm born with,
something assigned as birth?
or is everyone right...?
have I really not found the right person?
am I really too young to know?
I hear it so often,
it's hard to not doubt...
I touch my stomach,
wondering why I feel no heat,
no tingling, no pleasure.
my hand drifts lower
but still, nothing.

What does that mean?
That means I keep an eye out for the best literature on dA in German and French language (poetry and prose).
If you think you have a suggestion for me, read on!
What is DailyLitRecognition?
DLR is a group dedicated to promoting the work of literature artists on deviantArt.
By showcasing featured DLRs in foreign languages as well as in English the literature gallery moderators provide the community with a showcase of excellence in Literature. In contrast, we will be showcasing excellence with a series of literature pieces each day in a News Article to serve the community. We are a diverse group featuring 5 pieces of quality literature every day.
In such a large community many writers feel that their work goes unnoticed.
Many foreign language authors do not get the recognition they deserve mostly because of language barriers.
The DLR is here to help change that!
How do I suggest a DLR?
Please take this form for a suggestion:
Suggested by: deviant
Featured by: deviant
Title by deviant
Description goes here!
Please only suggest a piece to one Admin at a time to avoid any confusion.
If you have a suggestion for me, please send me a note!
Please send no more than two suggestions at a time. This makes it easier for me to keep up.
I can feature poetry or prose in either German or French, though I try to focus more on poetry.
Please include a thumb and a description of why you think this piece deserves to be featured. It does not have to be a full critique - a few sentences will do nicely!
Yes, you can suggest yourself! If you deserve it, you deserve it! But please do not send me your entire gallery - remember I have to actually read everything sent to me.
All the Admins have a certain style they enjoy. I myself like writing spiritual, emotional, philosophical pieces and reading historical works as well as a bit of fantasy, so I'm more likely to feature things with those qualities. However, I will read and consider anything sent to me. I do have to ask though, that they are standalone pieces - not chapters. I cannot accept fanfiction either.
Remember: Each deviant can only be featured once per month!

Thursday Prompt: My Christmas ListHello, Core Members, and welcome back to our holiday Thursday Prompt series!
In our first challenge, “This is How We Do”, you had to share with us your favorite holiday traditions. From your deviations, we learned a lot about how you all celebrate the holidays, and it’s really cool how different people have different ways of celebrating the season.
After much deliberation, we have picked the six works that we felt best showcased the spirit of the holidays. Here are our winning visual deviations:

CP: Malintra-ShadowmoonTo know another’s heart.
To smile, laugh, cry, scream beside a fellow.
Letting go of logic, and sometimes rationality.
Feel for you, me, anyone around you.
Let it fill you, so you may fully understand.
Hand in handLife facing Death, Light against Darkness
One ancient faith, and one which survived to persecution
We all need somebody to beg during hardness
You can call it Satan or Seth, we all fight for absolution.
Always bringing two sacred symbols on my mortal body
The eternal life Egyptian Ankh and a Cathar cross
Trinity is older than Jesus, hoping to not annoy anybody
We all look for a better life when the last gate we'll get across.

The Dragon and Its Treasure: Hoarding CLOSEDGreetings, fellow inmates:
The time is upon us to welcome another Hallowe'en season. It is, truly, the most wonderful time of the year. To celebrate the second Hallowe'en of the Asylum, we would like to present you with a contest so you can join us in rapt anticipation of the oncoming feast day. We hope you can make it.
The fairy-tale dragon is the prototypical pathological hoarder. It accumulates trinkets and baubles as treasure and guards it with might and mien. It can't use any of this stash, of course. And ultimately, what it had amassed force it to live in caves and relative squalor. And ultimately, when the adventuring knight comes calling, not even the mighty dragon can take its loot with it.
Today, the hoarding disorder is defined as: "A pattern of behaviour that is characterized by excessive acquisition and an inability or unwillingness to discard large quantities of objects that cover the living areas of the home and cause sign
