Walls of Serenity – A Poem by Ninni Andersen

Walls of Serenity

“Take my hand”
he says pulling back
golden threads of wisdom
hanging swiftly from
an unseen ceiling

Walls of serenity
closes in on me
as I feel the soft skin
of his palm
pressing against mine

Three Poems by Ninni Andersen

My minimalized uterus

A tower ahead steering me towards the dead
A little shuttle locks the path

I am dying here
Sitting wealthy in the airport’s waiting area

I will bleed to death
Leaving nothing but my minimalized
++++++++++uterus

 

 

My lost feet

I had the beach all to myself
Despite my wish for closer relations

Fifty years have passed
And here I am
Isolated from the longed for world
Going on all around my lost feet

 

 

The skull of Mother Earth

The skull of Mother Earth
lays resting on Milky Way’s worn out diamonds

Empty as a newly exorcised christian
she begs for mercy

Going Home and Deadly Twinkling Stars by Ninni Andersen

Going home

going home
following a path written by parallel lines
of scented pinkish flowers
another galaxy above ours
small oriental boats floating on the river of despair
I sit on the edge letting my bare feet
float along and break the waterline
creating new lives for creatures
deep down in the lukewarm, salty water
thin air grasps my fragrant hair
ties it playfully into patterns of joyful snares
going home
smelling of scented pinkish flowers
another galaxy above ours

 

Deadly twinkling stars

stumbling into herself /
she gets caught by surprise /
a never ending galaxy /
clearing space for her inner thoughts /
“Allow me”
one step /
everything she’s ever believed in /
transforms into a heavy shower /
of deadly twinkling stars
