We’ve just published a new poetry book on Gumroad – a journey through seven worlds as a travel through life! Main themes are friendships, beauty, overcoming challenges, discovering inspiration and joyful creativity, and finding the path to deeper wisdom.
The opening is here:
the blinking seas
of deep blue
on the chair
a mild breeze
along the horizon
in timeless beauty
From the blurb: “A poetry journey and metaphorical journey of life. A man travels through worlds of struggles and hardships, but also with industrious inspiration and modest helpers on the way to his final goal – the distant mountain top.
A story of growth, learning, love, resilience, and slowly uncovering the path to a deeper understanding of the world, and of oneself.
A modern Odyssey of the deeper life within us.”

Thanks again for following this blog – and happy reading!
“The birds were flying around him this morning, as he walked by the river to the coffee shop. Gliding white birds and the subtle flow and drizzle of the water. One of his favorite memories from the mountains was a small river falling off a steep cliff, and the water drops dancing downwards in free fall, with random movements and creating a whole little contained spectacle. It was a beautiful little spectacle of nature, and mostly unseen and not related to anything. Just water falling, drops spreading, mostly reaching the ground deep below, and some evaporating into thin air. “
“After some hours of rain the twilight fell, and the deep blue blended with the little beautiful street lights outside. He thought of the last few weeks, and then felt how his heart was beating. There was a little voice, and a little smile, that was always with him now. Even when he was not seeing it or thinking about it, it was always there, in him.”
“And that night he kept dreaming about new travels once again, about tropical islands, swinging palms and blue pristine skies, or bustling town squares in ancient old cities, with a little sidewalk table and a coffee, or sometimes blended into a glass of wine, soaking in the hot sun and the historical buildings, and feeling the thick warm atmosphere of a lively town with a big heart and passionate outbursts of joy, enthusiasm, and intense human bonds blistering with intensity and love.”
“One morning a new friend appeared at the sidewalk table, unassumingly sitting beside Maurice and carefully reading the menu before softly doing the orders with a flowing smile at the end. Her dark hair was shimmering in the sun, and a careful but withdrawn sparkle was hiding in her eyes. He immediately felt a bit dizzy.”
