BG 209 – Wake up

Take a moment to consider
what is important to you
what gives meaning to your life.

Attention and likes
on social media
or rather real contact,
friendship, wonder.

Indulge in more and more
consumption or rather
be content with what you have
and take better care of your environment
before it’s too late.

What have you done today
to make the world
a little more beautiful?
WAKE UP in
twenty twenty-four!

BG 207 – Tomcat (Limerick)

There once was a brave little tomcat
who only liked water to lóók at
he jumped on thin ice
and to his surprise
squealed soaking wet just like a muskrat

BG 201 – Haiku (EN)

autumnal storm wind
rages past house and garden
a branch loudly breaks

BG 195 – Terse Thunderstorms (Tautogram)

translate those tranquil testimonies
that together tempt the tendency
to tackle the testy temperaments
tick thump throb tumult trash them

technical throwaway tectonics
together tantalizing temptations
theatrically tarnishing themselves
than transgress transfuse taint

two three ten twenty terminating
their theorem too terrifying tough
then those terms to their taciturnity
tattered tails to take themselves

their typeface thoroughly thick
their thunderstorms typically terse

BG 183 – Haiku (EN)

suddenly through holes
in the fresh green canopy
burning summer sun

BG 155 – Haiku (EN)

the scent of winter
from in between the pages
and leather, the book

BG 151 – Wagging Weightlessness (Tautogram)

why would we wonder
while whole worlds with wings
wrestle whoever, whatever, whenever
wholeheartedly willing wonderment

witty window-ledges wither with
words written where wildlife wanes
what will withdrawal waste
when wild winds want womanhood

women whose wisecrack wisdom
wills wonderful well-aimed worlds
within wintertime wondrous walls
while wilderness wantingly waits
wagging weightlessness

BG 146 – Herfst / Autumn

Animated GIF, Herfst, gedicht op herfstblad.


Regen,
donkere luchten,
donderslagen en bliksemschichten,
woest vallende kleurrijke bladeren.
Herfst!


Rain,
dark skies,
thunder and lightning,
ferociously falling colorful leaves.
Autumn!

BG 140 – Haiku (EN)

head absorbed in phone
luckily just avoided:
homo appicus
