Secret Places

The trees don’t sleep at night
they drink the silence
and breathe the breeze
that rustles the leaves
until new light is born.

When you walk deep into a forest, you’ll find them: secret and quiet places, where almost nobody ever comes.
The wind and the sun play with grass and leaves, painting together a constantly changing scenery…

Rooted - Stillness in your heart The roots of a tree in a November storm - Digital artwork based on a photograhp by Jacob Berghoef

Rooted

Stillness in your heart
The roots of a tree
in a November storm

In all the turmoil of the world, there are trees that remain standing perfectly straight. Offering protection and holding on no matter how severe the storm rages around them. Deeply rooted, connected to the earth and to the trees around them.
Find your tree, cherish it and hold on to it.

Wandering Dreams - Many people dream of an earth that is safe and clean, that is treated with care so that it can give enough to all its inhabitants without becoming exhausted. Only when all those dreams come to life in common sense and people take action to live differently will that dream become a reality. - Surrealistic digital artwork by Jacob Berghoef

Wandering Dreams

Dreams wander
between the trees,
waiting, longing
to be reborn as
common sense
in a new time

Many people dream of an earth that is safe and clean, that is treated with care so that it can give enough to all its inhabitants without becoming exhausted.

Only when all those dreams come to life in common sense and people take action to live differently will that dream become a reality.

Summer Evening At The Pond - See the evening sun color the flowers, reflecting in the rippling water of the pond - Surrealistic digital artwork by Jacob Berghoef

Summer Evening At The Pond

I sit on a stone,
on the east side of the pond

Staring at the water,
       waiting.
Nobody understands why

All I want is to see how
the setting sun colors the flowers
       in the ripples
of a summer breeze.

Misty Morning (2)

Morning breaks over the silent forest
Clouds of mist rise from the moss,
carrying the cold of a winter's night

On the threshold of spring, I walk through the woods early on a cold and misty morning. Shreds of mist rise from the ground, the day is beginning.

Scorched Earth

I think you all know by now that I am not a screamer. But sometimes you just have to stand outside, look up at the sky and scream really loud...

Into The Day - It's still dim when I wake up. I get out, I can't stay in bed. For a moment I go outside, it is cold. I enjoy the quiet first hours of the day. Then you wake up. A warm hand, a warm hug. The day begins. - Surrealistic forestscape, digital art based on fine art landscape photography by Jacob Berghoef

Into The Day

Early in the morning I am
alone, breathing
the cold remnants of
the night, thoughts
wandering in silence, waiting
for the new light. Your hand
brings me to the now,
caresses me, together
we walk into the day. 

It's still dim when I wake up. I get out, I can't stay in bed. For a moment I go outside, it is cold. I enjoy the quiet first hours of the day.

Then you wake up. Your hand touches me, a warm embrace, a kiss. The day begins.

Silent Darkness

Silent forest
A tree hums
Dark sound

Forests often have an enchanting atmosphere. The silence that is enhanced by the murmur of leaves, the dim light, a creaking branch that makes you look around where that deer is hiding...
But sometimes a forest is like a fairy tale. Usually those are the rare moments when a few rays of sunlight manage to penetrate to the soft moss through a dense canopy.

Snow remnants melting
A soft breeze intoxicates me
The scent of a new morning

Scent Of Early Morning

A pine fragrance,
damp ground awakens
The first light
softly caresses the moss
A spring morning blends
with dark scents of the night

It's early in the morning.The first sunlight touches the moss between the trees. And as if the forest had been waiting for it, immediately the most wonderful scents rise up and mingle with the nightly smell of damp leaves and wood.
