Simplicity (St Francis )


quote by St Francis of Assisi (art by Koessler)


If lonely, seek circle

of fire; friendly smiles, hot

drink to give love’s warmth



art by Koessler


in the loft are high-

er things, higher truths, reaches

beyond yonder skies

Everything you didn’t understand Made you what you are. Charles Simic in “Evening Talk” in The Book of Gods and Devils


art by Koessler


Everything you didn’t understand made you what you are:

the fantasy worlds in books

the giggles and harrumphs

the ticklish moments

the invisible friends

the angels in disguise

the foreign culture’s manifestations

the tongues and their languages

the scents that stuck to you

the energy that entered your cells

and transforms in spite of you

mystery to mystery

And so you step on

from dust to glory!

Sleep is my friend


art by Koesssler


“let go” to sleep- of

fears, weakness, fatigue, envy-

trust sway of cradle

Man Cave


art by Koessler


we are at our most

creative while we sleep and

Spirit takes over
