Lieven Grillaert: Great Streets of silence led To Neighborhoods of Pause Here was no Notice, no Dissent No Universe, no laws By Clocks, ’twas Morning, and for Night The Bells at Distance called But Epoch had no basis here For Period exhaled.
I take my wine jug out among the flowers to drink alone, without friends. I raise my cup to entice the moon. That, and my shadow, makes us three. But the moon doesn’t drink, and my shadow silently follows. I will travel with moon and shadow, happy to the end of spring. When I sing, […]
Lieven Grillaert Here dead we lie Because we did not choose To live and shame the land From which we sprung. Life, to be sure, Is nothing much to lose, But young men think it is, And we were young.
Lieven Grillaert If only the sun-drenched celebrities are being noticed and worshiped, then our children are going to have a tough time seeing the value in the shadows, where the thinkers, probers and scientists are keeping society together. Poetry out of Laarne is language at its most distilled and most powerful. Cheer up he shouted […]
Lieven Grillaert With the arrogance of youth, I determined to do no less than to transform the world with Beauty. If I have succeeded in some small way, if only in one small corner of the world, amongst the men and women I love, then I shall count myself blessed, and blessed, and blessed, and […]
As in sleeping-drink spices softly she loosens in the liquid-clear mirror her fatigued demeanor; and she puts her smile deep inside. And she waits while the liquid rises from it; then she pours her hair into the mirror, and, lifting one wondrous shoulder from the evening gown, she drinks quietly from her image. She drinks […]
Lieven Grillaert I went down to the river, I set down on the bank. I tried to think but couldn’t, So I jumped in and sank.I came up once and hollered! I came up twice and cried! If that water hadn’t a-been so cold I might’ve sunk and died.But it was Cold in that water! […]
Lieven Grillaert I was angry with my friend; I told my wrath, my wrath did end. I was angry with my foe: I told it not, my wrath did grow.And I waterd it in fears, Night & morning with my tears: And I sunned it with smiles, And with soft deceitful wiles. And it grew […]
Lieven Grillaert What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up Like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore– And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over– like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode? Or do […]

Lieven Grillaert earth’d up, here lies an imp o’ hell, planted by Satan’s dibble; poor silly wretch, he’s damned himsel’, to save the Lord the trouble…., 16 years cannot be doomed, only youth will be mistaken damn darn damn
Lieven Grillaert Death is in the flower’s heart Why to cry for life of any petal ? Death in purple ink of weary pens Betrays the written yearnings …On his scented paper. Death is laughing in his cry; His broken heart forlorn upon the sleeve. Death ignores the plight of any purity He doesn’t care or […]
This is where you can ask zany or silly questions and tell outright lies about Spain. Go on, go for it! I´ll start us off: – Contrary to popular opinion, Portugal is not one of Spain´s provinces, but an actual country.
Feel free to ask any questions, that could make your stay in Spain easier or more enjoyable!? Just to start us off: – Post office boxes are yellow and are marked “Correos”. – Instead of the habitual British fare, do try some tapas(snacks) or regular Spanish food. – In most places you will NOT find […]
Lieven Grillaert As I am feeble, pale, and weary, And my wings are nearly furled; I have caused a scene so dreary, I am glad to quit the world! With bitterness I’m thinking On the evil I have done, And to my caverns sinking From the coming of the sun. * The heart of one […]
Yes, I copied this from a friend, called Khano on Booksie: You know you’re living in 2011 when: 1.) You accidentally enter your password on a microwave. 2.) You haven’t played solitaire with real cards for years. 3.) The reason for not staying in touch with your friends is they don’t have a screen name […]
Said the table to the chair, “You can scarcely be aware How I suffer from the heat And from blisters on my feet! If we took a little walk We might have a little talk. Pray, let us take the air!” Said the table to the chair. Said the chair unto the table, “Now you […]

Want to have a laugh? Watch this:
Yves François: “There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too […]
Lieven Grillaert And Now For Something Completely Different (Monty Python’s ) lol *** Sleepless, I lay last night and watched the slow Procession of the men who wear my clothes: First, the grey man with bloodshot eyes and sly Gestures miming what he loves and loathes. Next came the cheery knocker-back of pints, The beery […]
I sit alone thinking of you and all the things we’ve both been through You are my soul mate, my very best friend and I know you’ll be there until the end
Lieven Grillaert Picture puzzle piece Lyin’ on the sidewalk, One picture puzzle piece Soakin’ in the rain. It might be a button of blue …On the coat of the woman Who lived in a shoe. It might be a magical bean, Or a fold in the red Velvet robe of a queen. It might be the […]
Lieven Grillaert Bright star, would I were steadfast as thou art Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night, And watching, with eternal lids apart, Like nature’s patient sleepless eremite, The moving waters at their priestlike task …Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores, Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask Of snow upon the […]
A dream within a dream by Lieven Grillaert on Saturday, 13 August 2011 at 23:46 “For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down in words with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived it. There is, however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which are […]

From Rishabh Agarwal’s Gallery on Picasa There must be some way out of here, said the joker to the thief, Theres too much confusion, I cant get no relief. Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth, None of them along the line know what any of it is worth. No reason to get […]
