Pierre de la Mer ~ sometimes slightly worried but never panicking ~

"If ever there was
a three-mug-morning
this would be it"

No other thought
entered his mind
while he was starring out
over the barren land

Out to the horizon
where it met
the vast grey
and overcast sky

"Bleak
Is there a saint by that name?
if there is
this must be his day"

He turned towards
the coffee-maker
and only minutes later
he woke up

A butterfly just fluttered by
showing me it's colours
spring has sprung, soon summer's sun
its fairy tale will tell us

paulh, making lemonade from the lemons that life has given me

Where did the time go?
I thought I had forever.
That's an error, I now know,
But not because I'm clever.

(I'm not)

Pierre de la Mer ~ sometimes slightly worried but never panicking ~

when I die,
my astoms will come undone;
i'll be space dust, once again.

the wind will carry me;
scatter me everywhere;
like dandelions in springtime

i'll visit worlds and alien moons;
it'll be so damn poetic
- until i land on your sandwich.

When I die, don't put me in a box.
Let me be in the open, where starlight
And sunbeams can kiss me, and rocks
Can stand as guardians, day and night.

Music enhances life.
Music is everyday, death and birth.
Music is moments - big and small.
Music is the desire to try something new.
Music is knowing - and challenging - traditions.
Music is now!

Music has changed since my youth.
Jazz is less popular now.
Quality lasts, that's the truth,
And good lyrics? Please take a bow!

Christmas songs give me great joy.
It's hard to dislike them at all.
This year's had much to annoy,
But give me some carols, and I'll have a ball.
