a quick glance

the mirror laughs back

the day is young

looking for answers

a blind person in the dark

clouds across the bay

Denmark hidden from our sight

my feet in soft sand

sipping cold white wine

snaking along the Danube

where do we come from

questions always lingering

where do we go to?

the edge of purple

provided that special touch

that made you complete

filled with aged ideas

books, choirs, summer night dreams

punting boats floating

over foothills of the Alps

she sits on a stone

my dreams in pastel

thoughts about life’s pure joy

every moment spent

One day

desert paradise

breathtakingly beautiful

lay me here to rest

somewhere in my heart

just stop and stand still

you can hear the birds singing

sit for a moment

watching addicts on the streets

beliefs a free choice

dance in the moonlight

tomorrow may never come

seize a shining star

to follow the joy of life

even when it’s tough

but nobody laughs at him

our laughs are all gone

Dreaming real

we walk in the moonlight

dreams become reality

when we make them so

South Africa held hostage

broken ANC

an insincere president

we’re all April fools
