(a Dog's Heaven)

I took a long walk with Ronja (the dog) through the snowy park. There are days when I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in the world, today is one of them :)

Ronja found a friend
Prince Charming ;)

Love from Karlsruhe, Germany,
(and Ronja)


Does it whisper..?

Night in New Jersey
Does the sun go down in New Jersey
Just like everywhere else?
Or does it
When it goes down in Hoboken
And the fading day melts with the dark night sky
Does it whisper...
Frank Sinatra?


Pop-up Words

Out of nowhere
(or out of the blue?)
Sometimes words just pop up –
            Right into my mind.
Can be any word
Can be any language
Just 5 minutes ago it was –
I don’t know.
Sometimes I wish I could block these words from popping
You know -
With some kind of a pop-up-blocker
But there is no pop-up-blocker for words in my head
After all these years, my mind is still not a computer!
(now that’s really amazing!)
I feel like I’m drowning in a sea of words
I wish I was a poet…



Frank O'Hara
a great American Poet

       Have you forgotten what we were like then
       when we were still first rate
       and the day came fat with an apple in its mouth
       it's no use worrying about Time
       but we did have a few tricks up our sleeves
       and turned some sharp corners
       the whole pasture looked like our meal
       we didn't need speedometers
       we could manage cocktails out of ice and water
       I wouldn't want to be faster
       or greener than now if you were with me O you
       were the best of all my days

This is Meditations in an Emergency
recited by Jon Hamm in Mad Men

Listen to the words
This is Poetry...
