About/Portfolio updated

Mit dem Kopf in den Sternen

Es ist wie es ist wenn es passiert,
es ist und kommt und manches bleibt,
es wird auch dich und mich erwischen
und reinziehen in die Ewigkeit.

Manch einer windet sich und glaubt
es sei ihm nicht bestimmt, geht taub
und blind durchs Leben neben sich,
seiner einstigen Sinne beraubt.

Ein anderer hat es gleich erkannt,
ergibt sich ohne den Verstand
zu nutzen, hell erleuchtet bräuchte
er nur eine Hand …

die ihn hält und sanft den Weg weist,
liebevoll und so harmonisch,
wird er auch hineingezogen,
noch bevor er weiß was los ist.

Schwimmt im Glück des Jetzt,
mit dem Kopf in den Sternen,
ist bereit zu sein
und zu lernen.
