A Bull in the China Shop


Down, with a crash!
Porcelain toys,
financed with cash,
for world's girls and boys.

Men on the moon,
build China shop, too.
Needing no room
for bulls who would rule.

Build porcelain toys
that study the sky.
Collaborative joy,
for those who would try.

Saying to Earth-friends:
Don't spit into wind.

C'est La Vie

The waves of the sea
Look at me in my rocking boat.
So it be mote!

"De aarzeling komt twijfelend om de hoek
En toont mij het blauwe licht in de kamer
Van mijn beste vriend."

Can't you see the centre of it all?

And so we forgot about the air in the sky,
The words in our mouth and the tiny
Notes of music in the sky.

So it be mote,
Note for note,
C'est la vie.

Can't you see the centre of it all?

Hope Of The Sands

Sands in time,
We will forever be.
The mirrored beach,
Reflecting to the sky,
Resolving into the water of the sea,
We will forever be
The hope of the sea,
The hope of the sands,
The hope of the saints.
Refrain from being starved
In the sciences of life.
Hope of the sands,
Hope of the sea,
This is all between you and me,
Between sky and lands,
Between sorrows and grands.
This is all hope of the sands.
This is all time, when the sands, sun and sky
Sing the hope of the sea,
The hope off you and me.

Salvation


If God will save us from ourselves,
Will He, then, match our sins, in kind?
With dimly-heard, the coming bells,
providing, yet, familiar sign . . .

A silent blackness, born of stress,
to save us from a burnt-out world.
A plague, that will not take redress,
except, the gift of death, unfurled . . .

To ruthlessly tear people's souls,
and leave their bodies by the road.
No friend or foe would pay the toll,
to chance beside that dire abode.

The scourge will end.
A new amen.

Le Brouillard

Son coeur a laissé
le chambre libre
A l'oiseau.

Pour trainer
Sans le miracle
Dans un ciel
De brouillard.

Vole une peu
Dans les émeraldes
Du coeur de la terre.

Le ciel est avec nous,
Nous, les héros, trainant
Dans un monde sans miracle.

Laissons le chambre
Libre à l'oiseau.
Laissons le ciel
Libre aux étoiles.
Laissons la terre
Libre aux amis.

On cours après le miracle
Au fond de nos coeurs,
Au bout de la terre.

Le brouillard, entre les arbres
S'évanouit, direction étoiles,
Qui doivent ëtre nées.

Reflection, absorption où émission,
Tout est la verité, exactement,
Comme notre bon Dieu.

A Sign II

The doorstep left a leaf in front.
It wouldn't move, so the wind did take it.
It did not leave a sign on the ground,,
That soil, that is drying out under our feet.

How big the drought is, only our Lord can see.
Where do the lonely travellers go to,
Once the song is dead,
When even the sand is gone,
When the sign is gone
And breaks the singer of the song.

We go away from the drought
Under our heavy feet,
Where there is no sign to be found.

The wind did take it
And blew it into the arms of love,
With an army of love.

They left a sign.
