True Silence

A noisy mountain river
Waves of sound
Dancing around trees
Miraculously entering my ears
No one here
To disturb the silence

About Fearlessness

The wise do not fear death
Nor do they grieve
For what cannot be lost

Having looked deeply
Into the heart of experience
They can see beyond
The polarity of life and death

— Andreas Frickinger

At the Red Light

At the red light
Hard sunlight illuminates the street
Stirring piano chords in the air
A wave is rushing through my body
My eyes becoming moist
The next moment
Gone

— Nils Schmalenbach

Hazy Blue Mountain

Hazy blue mountain at a distance
How far away are you?

To me, you are right here
Closer than the tip of my nose

How could I ever believe
You were outside of me?

— Andreas Frickinger

Intimacy

The wind is coming
A range of trees in the distance
Waving welcome and goodbye
Your voice so intimate and close
Your smile echoing through my body

— Nils Schmalenbach

My Dearest Belief

In the moment of death
Even if it comes with great force and fury
It will have its own strange beauty
And I will be ready
To surrender
To life

— Nils Schmalenbach

Patient Mountains

Looking down into the valley
Shapes of clouds seem numberless

Up here, the weather changes quickly
Sun, wind, clouds and rain
Conduct an endless symphony

The lake reflects without a preference
As patient mountains listen deeply

— Andreas Frickinger

Summer Walk

There it is
Coming from nowhere
Going nowhere
Two flickering lights in the distance
Dogs barking
Warm wind touched by the skin
A firm stand on the ground
So very peaceful in the midst of it all
As the heart opens
It doesn’t reject anything
Nor does it add something unnecessary
There it is
A taste of freedom

— Andreas Frickinger

True Silence

A noisy mountain river
Waves of sound
Dancing around trees
Miraculously entering my ears
No one here
To disturb the silence

— Andreas Frickinger

Vastness

Fallen into
This vast universe without meaning
Lonely and caught up in confusion
Taken away by the winds of separation

Suddenly
A glimpse of reunion
Guided by precious beings
Although no beings can be found anywhere

A longing to be united
With unconditional peace
Searching for miracles in the wrong places
All of them to be found within the breath

As body and mind become transparent
The heart
Steps out of its self-made confinements
Into the vastness of it all

— Andreas Frickinger
