Creative Expression and Poems by Christiane Eitle

Silence is a dream unspoken.
An inside universe that I keep to myself.
Joy that can’t be expressed.
Fear tightening my throat.
Love that doesn’t need words.
Disappointment reflecting in my face.
Contentment radiating around me.
Rage that wants to suffocate me.
Cheerfulness in my laugh, pain in a single scream, grief and happiness in my tears.
I don’t need words, to show you who I truly am.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

footprints in the sand.
a path leading.
where does it go?
my life in waves.
an ocean, blue with opportunities.
a fire guiding the way.
the wind blowing my fears.
mountains revealing magic.
and trees, embodiment of life.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

A magic light
So warm, like golden sunrays
I feel loved, this light and memories
Of cold days and wonder

ॐ ॐ ॐ

Colours everywhere I look.
The sound of the street mingled with soft words.
Warm air on my skin.
Tasting coffee on my tongue.
Calm and steady life flows.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

All those years
A mask
Hiding, pretending
I can’t hide from my soul
It knows the truth
Listening and dancing
Until the mask can fall
To the earth
And stay. no – disappear
I don’t need a mask
My true nature is beautiful
You see?

ॐ ॐ ॐ

How many shades of blue can be real?
Darkblue deep, greenblue, pale and shallow.
Dense but clear, still and unsettled at the same time.
I long to be soaked into the sea.
Dive headfirst into the sky.
Rest my head on fluffy clouds.
But where do I start?
And is there an ending?
Unreal reality, like certain uncertainty.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

Let it all go
Surrender to your life
Let thinking fade
Make intuition your best friend

ॐ ॐ ॐ

Oh can’t you see the silver moon above you?
Everlasting and ever-changing in eternity.
Nestled in a dark, starless night sky.
A light breaking enchantingly through shades of clouds.
Mysterious lucid shining, illuminating your bare skin.
Comforting your soul, as you bathe underneath the hidden stars.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

She let go of her fears
and dared to trust.
She forgot to expect
and started to listen.
She ignored all doubts
and focused on the feeling.
She challenged herself
and expanded boundaries.
She accepted failure
and saw the good.
She forgot her old self
and discovered her true nature.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

Me. Alone. On my mat.
Nothing else needed.
Breathe and listen.
Move and feel.
Observe.
Embrace.
Let go.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

I stand here, in the middle of the storm.
Wind made of pain, disappointment and fear.
It is easy to grasp the wings of wind.
Let myself drag away.
Going to these dark places, that will drown me even deeper in chaos.
Until I dissolve in anger, sadness and anxiety.
Or I could just pause for a moment.
Close my eyes, imagine time stands still.
Breathe deeply, see the storm.
Choose not to grasp the wing.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

Mellow stream of water pouring lightly.
Like silk on skin, flowing over steady rocks.
Shivering into a million shapes.
Painted delicately by daylight spots.
Hypnotizing gurgling flow.
Like endless, ever-changing moments in time.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

Pain stuck in my chest, like water carving in stone.
Steady, suffocated love.
Hidden painfully deep within.
Anxiously banned from shining brightly.
Tender innocence buried by fear.
Doomed into painful silence.
Until the rebel heart wakes up.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

An ocean.
Mirror of heaven.
Calm and blue like a summers day.
Deep and dark in the night.
Comforting my body, like a warm blanket.
Vast and calm to carry me weightless.
Agitated to arouse my spirit.
Never letting me fall.
Guiding steady into the unknown.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

Can you see me?
Behind my eyes?
Do you want to know me?
Beyond my words?
Will you dare to look deep?
And not be afraid of the endless ocean of my bursting heart?

ॐ ॐ ॐ

When you shut me out
I will still be here
Watching you slip into dark places
Where I can’t reach you
A faint idea of your despair
Feeling your pain I am helpless
Seeing you fall into this numb indifference
I want to scream. Don’t fall, I am here, I love you.
You surrender to your unspeakable demons, again and again.
I want you to be strong, to resist the dead water
But the only thing I can do is wait
Regardless, I will be here.
Until you dive your way back to the surface

ॐ ॐ ॐ

New vibrations floating my body.
It’s all there and always was.
Intrinsic certainty.
Connected to myself.
No matter where.
It’s always me.
In different shades.
With new vibrations.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

smell
sight
sound
sensation
Shooting in my center
Cracking my heart wide open
Ready to receive the world
Bursting of happiness

ॐ ॐ ॐ

Your eyes, they tell a story.
Of a yet unwritten life.
I sink into these dark oceans of gaze.
Wondering what wisdom your soul prevails.
What I see is pure and clear.
Innocent and knowing at the same time.
Embracing the whole universe.
You are complete.
You know everything, that we already forgot.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

I live with a red hummingbird.
Sometimes he talks to me.
He says: go there, it looks nice.
And I go.
Sometimes he shouts at me: what do you think you are doing?
I try to ignore him.
I don’t like being yelled at.
He starts picking at me. He’s very impatient.
It hurts. I want to cry.
He says: look, you should try this.
And I do it.
Maybe he knows better after all.
It feels right. I like it here.
Then he falls asleep.
I look at him. He has this weird happy smile in his face.
Wondering when he will wake up again?

ॐ ॐ ॐ

I see you.
Close and distant at the same time.
I hear your words.
The ones you spoke a million times before. It’s your script.
The image you created around your life.
The words that justify your existence.
Give you a meaning.
I pity you in your effort to make an impression.
I hate it. When I feel I don’t get the real, the crazy, the shameless.
I get bored. I want to see you.
So will you dare to lift the veil?
No more disguise of fears and insecurities.
I want to hear your hopes and dreams.
The parts of your storyline, that are still missing.
Only then, I know you.
In complete beauty of human imperfections.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

She fears the fall, when falling in love.
A perfect emerging butterfly.
Feeling complete in its beauty.
Who needed no one to grow.
Then love happened.
Spinning her around.
Loosing orientation.
Falling into unknown places.
Revealing the hidden inside her.
The painful she never dared to know.
One day tough the butterfly will fly again.

ॐ ॐ ॐ

I saw the emptiness behind the chaos that we call our self.
I knew the shallowness of all thinking.
The untruthfulness of feelings.
The ever-changing nature to everything that is.
How can we name it our self?
If it is not permanent?
A new experience. A new self.
Subtle or tremendous.
Deep transformation and shifts of perceived reality.
Layers of self covering emptiness and silence.
The truth of what we are.
A blank page painted colorfully with millions shades of self.
