 The Viking

                                                                              With one thought in mind
This world belongs to me
He was a free man
She was a free woman

They were free as warriors
Their integrity to their mission
Was more important than their body
And so they conquered land

They originated
From Iceland, Norway
Sweden, Denmark

And so set sail to America
Long before Columbus ever did

They traded with the Arabic world
Went to Mediterranean countries
And sailed the long rivers of Russia
All the way to Kurdistan
They ruled the Baltic
They conquered the British Isles
And gave name to Normandy

They were one with the forces 
And the gods of nature
They were masters 
In building an empire
But didn't understand yet
How to sustain one
For a longer time

Just like there are warriors
There are still Vikings around
They do have long hair as men
But not necessarily so
And as women with long hair 
But not necessarily so 
A Viking is he who is fearless
And true to his mission in life
A Viking is she who is fearless
And true to her mission in life

Vikings are immortal!

Walking up to the stars

You can
Go to the left
Go to the right
Or get yourself into the ground

Or you can
Go to the right
While you liked the left
Or go to the left
With a desire for the right

Or for excitement
Go to the basement of life
Down and down you go
Darker and darker even so

In a moment supreme
There shows up
One more direction to go

You can actually
Walk up to the stars
You have seen
The step by step

Message from a Winter Elf

Some people wonder
How we survive
Dressed as in summer
While it is freezing winter
Snow, ice, blizzards
The answer is simple
We are not your kind
We are spirits
And are ourselves
Able to survive
Way below
In minus degrees

Laws like gravity
aging and temperature
Don't apply to us
If you really look
And then listen
You can communicate
With us
We are around
We see you
And we add
Sparkle to life
Merry Christmas !

Mother and child


God blesses the child
Whose mother is called

The Evening Star shines bright
Just like the Morning Star

Between day and night

With the world so large
And the body so small
Mom is a safe heaven

God has blessed the mother
Whose child is

Puerto Rico

Bring me to the Wealthy Harbor
With sails full of wind
I need to hear that music again
Which is the rhythm of my heart

Puerto Rico
Make me dance
Salsa, salsa, salsa
Me corazon

Sail to the Wealthy Harbor
For another day
You can't stop that music
'Cause it is the rhythm of your heart

Puerto Rico
Make me dance
Salsa, salsa, salsa
Te corazon

Guardian Angel

Each and every time
When people are taken into the sky
All that is left for them
To have
Is the interior of the plane
Endless sky
And the embodiment
Of a guardian angel
And skilled communication
I put my life in your hands
And I give you in return
Bring me home
Put my feet back on the ground
Guardian angel

Un nouveau siècle

From the open window
Comes piano music of Satie
And fills the street
The Eiffel tower is halfway built
The best breakfast there is
é au lait and a croissant

The air is filled
With creation, creation, creation
In the minds of the Paris people
Imagination, imagination
And l’amour is an art

Wouldn’t you like
To take a ride again
On this new invention
Called voiture Renault
I still do love your horses

Paris, c’est pas une ville
Nor a city or a town
It’s a dream
We had
And came true

Emperor of Quiet Winds

I am The Emperor of Quiet Winds
Caretaker of forgotten Dreams
While you sleep at night 
I roam the endless Bounderies

You are free to reign in my Empire
Sit down in the Chair
And rule with Fantasy
For just a moment that last Forever

Let me visit the Kingdom of your Soul
See your Land of Dreams and Vision
That makes me feel at Home
As Emperor of Quiet Winds

I do not feel any Fear
Neither do I feel your Fear
I trust You
While Quiet Winds roam

Floating upstream

Victorious is the one
Who disagrees by

Going against the stream
Following a dream

A boring career to keep
Following like a sheep
And go down the drain
No words to explain

No, for excitement is
An advise with no amiss
To float upstream and so
Some place to go
Where happiness is !

Walking dream

He is that kind of a fellow
Who turns the hearts
Of all the senoritas
Upside down

When they see
That glance in his eyes
They fall for him
Never to recover again

To them he is
A walking dream
Now trying to get him
Into their lives

Once he gives them a word
The fire goes even higher
Their dream now
Starts running

Take care of your life
You walking dream
Holding those senoritas lives
In your hands

Don't make them feel
You are the only one
Because the fact is
They are not the only ones either

May evening

The grass
Is smelling newborn fresh
After a warm day
There is activity 
In the air
Reets smell sweet
And I am watching
The sky
Waiting for the stars
To come out

Taytu RaUkuu

Taytu, that's my name
The daughter of Ra
I, Princess of the Kingdom
Of the Big River in West Africa

A lion awaits you at my door
But fear not
I speak the language
Of the king of animals
And so can speak with them all

My feet are touching
Mother Earth
All of the day
And I believe
Laughter is the best
Medicine of all

Taytu, you know
Is my name
Our continent is raising
We are the birthground
Of rhythm
And of soul

I watch the eagle fly
And the sky
I know when rain is coming
Days ahead
And when my sister
Is on the way miles afar

Take care of my lion cub
While I make you tea
With sugar reed
Real sweet
Play with it now
Or it will run away

Taytu is my name
If it is needed
I can climb the top
Of the highest hill
To see
If my land is at peace

Fear not
For wild animals
In the night
I know hours ahead
When they have planned
To go down their path

Taytu that means
I can teach you simple life
I can show you a dance
And how to be a friend
I am the Princess
Of the Land of the Big River
In West Africa

Heal the minute scars
I have on my mind
With each song you sing
Through your voice

Make me whole again
After each battle in life
Through the soothing radiance
Of your divine face

It seems to me
You walked from the temples of Greece
The sanctuary of Southern Italy
The mountains of Aztlan
And the valleys of Japan

Heal me
Through the blessing that you are
With the songs you sing
Through the healing that you bring

Look.  Don't worry.

This TV
Makes you feel
Like a little man

That bad news
Makes you feel
You've got to worry

And it spreads
Like a virus
Amongst the people

What you gonna do?
Be like a monkey
Sitting in apathy?

You've got to
Don't worry

Look around you
Just look 
And soon enough
You don't worry
And you will be

Woman in a man's hat 

                                              She is telling stories

On a Saturday afternoon

While he listens

With all of his heart

And she is a woman

In a man's hat

And she listens

With all her heart

To the rain pouring down

With sunshine in the sky

While she is a woman

Holding his hand

She laid herself down

Into soft coloured pillows

And the rain listens

To the silence in her thoughts

Because she is a woman

In a man's heart

Life is good

The way it is

And she smiles

While she knows

That she is this woman

In a man's hat

Amore eterno

Love can take a flight
Beyond any bounderies
Not just during the night
But in every second of your life

To the point that time
Is loosing it's grip
And your affinity
Is filling up the whole universe

It's at that point
You know
You stroke amore eterno

No barriers
No reservations
No limitations
It hit what is called

May I wish you
Amore eterno
And your life
Taking a flight

I wish
I could tell you
Your destiny
But I will never
Be able to
Because I am not you

When the moon falls 

When the moon falls 

Children dance, children dance
When the moon falls 

And when the moon falls down
Let's play
In the garden
When the moon did fall

And children dance
Children dance

Hope never dies

A thought, an idea, a dream 
Never dies
As long as you keep
Putting life into it

Hope is for what I can see
Nothing more
Nothing less
Than a dream
You once made

Remember now
Dreams come true
When you say so
When you think so
It will come true

It is Mr.Time
Who can turn you
Into one desperate desire
Until the last bit of hope
Slips out of your hands

No need to believe
All is lost
When you put life again
Into your dream
It will come true
If not now
Or tomorrow
One day it will
As long as you believe it will
It will be faster
Than you ever believed.

Princess Love

Be ready
If you are the man
Of her dreams

You will dance
And laugh
And feel her touch
To your soul

Are you ready
For Princess Love

Who I am

I am the rider
Of a falling star
And the dream
Come true

I am the maker
Of three miracles
That saved others
And no one knows about

I am the poet
That read
People's minds
And touch their hearts

I am your friend
Even though
You don't know me

A woman has to give
Is inside of you

Mother Earth's daughter
Your love is king
Cherish the day
Viewing life from afar

In poetry
In rhythm
In melody
Her song

A woman has to give
Is expressed by you

The end of a love affair

How endless it all seems
Those feelings that remain
Also those will disappear
And will leave no trace

It's like sunshine
Trying to break through
With warmth and light
Into a misty morning

The cycle of life itself
Where nothing new
Will make a start
Before the old has died

It's not easy at times
When it is needed to stop
When things in the past
Have gone to the heavens

All that are left
While looking ahead
Good memories of you
In my life

Living Down Under

For someone like me
Living in the Old World
Called Europe
Down Under appears
Like falling off
At the End of the World

What a limited point of view

And so 
I took on 
Another viewpoint

I am now looking
From Down Under
To Europe, America
All of the rest
It looks like now
Europe is not falling 
Off the planet but almost
How silly actually the idea

New Zealand and Australia
The center of the world
No one has realised it yet
Except for ages long
The Aborigens
And the Brisbane 
And Auckland people

So if you are living Down Under
And people are calling you so
I call it now 
The Land on the Up and Up
And I'll meet you there

The Singer

I have been near musicians
All my life
We shared the stage
And communicated

But never was the message
As clear and direct
As from the Singer

I have never seen a soul
Nor did anyone else
With earthly eyes

But I have heard
A soul very clearly
Very direct
From unmeasurable deepness
With a scala of emotions
Which touched my very heart
Again and again, every time
When I hear the Singer
