count your demons...


When I counted up my demons
Saw there was one for every day
With the good ones on my shoulders
I drove the other ones away

So if you ever feel neglected
And if you think that all is lost
I'll be counting up my demons, yeah
Hoping everything's not lost

When you thought that it was over
You could feel it all around
And everybody's out to get you
Don't you let it drag you down

- Everything's not Lost, Coldplay

Beautiful flowers...


En automne, je récoltai toutes mes peines et les enterrai dans mon jardin.
Lorsque avril refleurit et que la terre et le printemps célébrèrentleurs noces,
mon jardin fut jonché de fleurs splendides et exceptionnelles.

In the autumn I gathered all my sorrows and buried them in my garden.
And when April returned and spring came to wed the earth,
there grew in my garden beautiful flowers unlike all other flowers.

--Khalil Gibran

There Was a Cherry-Tree


There was a cherry-tree. Its bloomy snows
Cool even now the fevered sight that knows
No more its airy visions of pure joy --
As when you were a boy.

There was a cherry-tree. The Bluejay sat
His blue against its white -- O blue as jet
He seemed there then!-- But now -- Whoever knew
He was so pale a blue!

There was a cherry-tree -- our child-eyes saw
The miracle:-- Its pure white snows did thaw
Into a crimson fruitage, far too sweet
But for a boy to eat.

There was a cherry-tree, give thanks and joy!--
There was a bloom of snow -- There was a boy --
There was a bluejay of the realest blue --
And fruit for both of you.

-- James Whitcomb Riley

Pebbles and Marbles



She started a blaze from one tiny spark
I didn't even detect
She loved the light, was dismayed by the dark
The stars though she seemed to respect

The faint light that flutters at night to the earth
Would land in her eyes and collect
Luminous creatures she'd find in the surf
I never thought to inspect

Pebbles and marbles like things on my mind
Seem to get lost and harder to find
When I am alone I am inclined
If I find a pebble in sand
To think that it fell from my hand

She gave me ideas
Planted the seed
But she never stopped to reflect
The course that she's on, wherever it leads
I never would redirect

Pebbles and marbles like words from a friend
Make us hold tight but are lost in the end
When we're alone we all seem to tend
If we find a marble in dust
To wish someone left it for us

Whiter Shade of Pale

We skipped the light fandango
turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kinda seasick
but the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
as the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
the waiter brought a tray

And so it was that later
as the miller told his tale
that her face, at first just ghostly,
turned a whiter shade of pale

She said, 'There is no reason
and the truth is plain to see.'
But I wandered through my playing cards
and would not let her be
one of sixteen vestal virgins
who were leaving for the coast
and although my eyes were open
they might have just as well've been closed

She said, 'I'm home on shore leave,'
though in truth we were at sea
so I took her by the looking glass
and forced her to agree
saying, 'You must be the mermaid
who took Neptune for a ride.'
But she smiled at me so sadly
that my anger straightway died

If music be the food of love
then laughter is its queen
and likewise if behind is in front
then dirt in truth is clean
My mouth by then like cardboard
seemed to slip straight through my head
So we crash-dived straightway quickly
and attacked the ocean bed

I am your morning hummingbird


Beloved Mother

I am your morning hummingbird
hovering in dreamlike winds
around the fragrant rose
of your radiant heart light

Sipping the sweet white nectar of your divine love
I am nourished and sustained
I am ablaze with whirling galaxies
of undivided joy

I am drunk and swooning
as I press my long slender beak
deep into the luminous petals
of your Great Heart
to sip the rapturous flowing currents
of your shining being

Deep Red

Without any warning it came to my head,
The dogma of my deepest conciousness
so that you can't find out yet,
I don't let you see my shivering hand.

even if I close my eyes, it comes to my head,
this absolutely invariable logic
Riding this flow without fighting it,
an absurd love romance.

and still in this world
in which love has gone insane and been tired out
I just can't go on walking alone anymore.

tracing just a tiny bit of warmth across your skin,
shall we draw a deep red flower in the monochrome scene,
just one petal.
it may be a quickly fading warmth across your skin,
but from now let's make a deep red flower bloom gently
in the faded scene.

A time I'd forgotten came back to me,
the twisted warped egoism.
So I wouldn't see your tears,
so I wouldn't feel the pain.

and still in this world
in which love has gone insane and been tired out,
I just can't go on walking alone anymore.

tracing just a tiny bit of warmth across your skin,
shall we draw a deep red flower in the monochrome scene,
just one petal.
it may be a quickly fading warmth across your skin,
but from here on let's make a deep red flower bloom
in the faded scene, more!

it may be a warmth close to a prayer across your skin but,
from here on let's make a deep red flower bloom
in the scenery you gave up on.
more!

Rain...

I feel it, it's coming

Rain, feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love's coming down like
Rain, wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love's coming down like rain

When your lips are burning mine
And you take the time to tell me how you feel
When you listen to my words
And I know you've heard, I know it's real
Rain is what this thunder brings
For the first time I can hear my heart sing
Call me a fool but I know I'm not
I'm gonna stand out here on the mountain top
Till I feel your

Rain, feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love's coming down like
Rain, wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love's coming down like rain

When you looked into my eyes
And you said goodbye could you see my tears
When I turned the other way
Did you hear me say
I'd wait for all the dark clouds bursting in a perfect sky
You promised me when you said goodbye
That you'd return when the storm was done
And now I'll wait for the light, I'll wait for the sun
Till I feel your

Rain, feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love's coming down like
Rain, wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love's coming down like rain

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say, never go away

Waiting is the hardest thing
[It's strange I feel like I've known you before]
I tell myself that if I believe in you
[And I want to understand you]
In the dream of you
[More and more]
With all my heart and all my soul
[When I'm with you]
That by sheer force of will
[I feel like a magical child]
I will raise you from the ground
[Everything strange]
And without a sound you'll appear
[Everything wild]
And surrender to me, to love

Rain is what the thunder brings
For the first time I can hear my heart sing
Call me a fool but I know I'm not
I'm gonna stand out here on the mountain top
Till I feel your

Rain, I feel it, it's coming
Your love's coming down like
Rain, I feel it, it's coming
Your love's coming down like
Rain, feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love's coming down like
Rain, wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love's coming down like rain

Rain, I feel it, it's coming
Your love's coming down like
Rain, I feel it, it's coming
Your love's coming down like
Rain
[I'll stand out on the mountaintop
And wait for you to call my name]
Rain

Summer night


Summer night --
even the stars
are whispering to each other.

Morning has broken


Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the world

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day

Welcome to my happy place :-)


I said something to someone - and realized that rosegarden and butterfly fields would be a nice name to a blog... a blog where one could post only happy thoughts and pretty pictures, inspirational, comforting, supporting and funny things... So here it is :-)
