Devotion Lilla Frerichs
Lilla Frerichs

the rush of water

resounds in my soul

i hurry to prayer


my journey is long

the forest comforts me

i seek the silence


i seek the temple

whose call is insistent

i bow in prayer

“We are on our way together with Basho and Sora on the Narrow Road into the Deep North. We have said farewell to our friends, family and neighbors and we are going on … finding finally, at the end of the Narrow Road enlightenment.”Chevrefeuilles

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. there is a long trail in Japan that winds through a large part of the country with some 100+ temples that pilgrims can visit. along the trail one can see the beauty of that country as it is reflected in their beautiful traditions harmoniously linked to nature.
