Starless Night

​(Glückskosmonaut)​​​Starless Night(​​​Sternlose Nacht) We need activists and athletes, dancers and singers, poets and dreamers. Followers of falling fantasies, creators of castles in the clouds and bursting bubbles, who risk everything to get it all.Who live their life for what they think their life was meant to be.We may say they lost touch to reality, lost …

Voice of Peace

There is a reason why there is no peace in this world perfectly hidden under all the noise of war. Peace doesn’t make money. It is as simple as that, the unspoken truth.Soldiers are no heroes, at least no soldier who doesn’t know what he is fighting for, at least not just by obeying an …

Cones

​Pointy cones.Built for eternity.With bricks and stones.As a place for Buddhists.For all their rites.Temples for their puniness and pride.Instead of following Buddha.And making their lives fit.His words and his actions.By doing what he did.Or it was an ice cream village,an ice cream shop for mighty giants.And between all these houseswere all these stony pointy ice …
