I see a full moon rising (same in German)

Stella, oh, Stella

Nachts am 9. November 2022, 18:16 Uhr im Süden:
… At night on 9 November 2022, 6:16 p.m. in the south:

Tagsüber, ja, das ist kein Sonnenuntergang, das ist der Mond, die Sonne haben wir auf diesem Foto im Rücken, 20. Dezember 2021, 10:33 Uhr im Westen:
… During the day, yes, this is not a sunset, this is the moon; the sun is in our back on this photo, 20 December 2021, 10:33 a.m. in the west:

Vollmond finde ich schön! … I like full moons!

Hier stürmt es zur Zeit von Ost-Nordost mit Überschwemmungen in Mittel- und Süddänemark.

… We have strong winds up to storm from east-northeast with floodings in middle and southern Denmark.

Sonnenblumen auf Blühflächen

Senioren um die Welt

Nach einem langen und sonnigen Herbst, der bis vor kurzem andauerte, ist es nicht nur kühler geworden, sondern auch die Sonne zeigt sich zur Zeit nur noch gelegentlich. Der lang ersehnte Regen ist endlich gefallen, wenn auch nicht allzu üppig. In den Regenpausen nutze ich die Zeit, um etwas rauszugehen und frische Luft zu tanken. Dass ich dabei zwischen anderen Pflanzen auf den Blühfächen einige Sonnenblumen entdecke, ist Mitte November eher ungewöhnlich.

Sleep Writing


Poems whisper to me as I prepare for bed
Like a lullaby I hear them in my head
I fall asleep holding my notebook tight
Clutch my pen feeling the ink glowing bright
I dream I am writing in my slumber
But when awake I can’t remember
To capture elusive words that run asunder
Many a time I make a wordy blunder
I try to get back words from where they meander
There is no paper, there is no pen
I don’t have to cross my t’s
And dot my i’s
I don’t need to write a rhyme
Or make the syllables chime
My mind let’s go and feels sublime
With the spoken word I converse
Dreams come to me in the form of a verse
A monologue
In a soliloquy
A symphony of my
Soul’s piquancy .
