The Narrow Path

Walking in silence
between the shadows
of dreams to come

It is quiet in the forest. The dense foliage brings coolness in summer, the impressive trunks of old trees provide protection when the wind blows hard. Time for a walk on narrow paths, deeper and deeper into the forest.

A sunny, warm spring day. It is quiet in the forest, not a breath of wind, no one to be seen. As I walk deeper into the forest, the young greenery closes me off more and more from the busy world. I walk on slowly, as if in a dream....

Unending Dream (3)

Noon.
No one around.
I walk this path,
deep
into spring.
An unending,
surrealistic dream.

Always silent, seemingly staring into nothingness What tales would they know and share? Intertwined roots, touching branches How do I listen in, share in their wisdom? I put my hand on the bark, feel a slight vibration press my ear against a trunk, close my eyes and enjoy images I never saw before Have you ever really touched a tree, put your arms around it and pressed your ear against the trunk? You should, the tree shares it’s energy with you…

On Tales From the Past

Always silent, seemingly staring into nothingness
What tales would they know and share?
Intertwined roots, touching branches
How do I listen in, share in their wisdom?
I put my hand on the bark, feel a slight vibration
press my ear against a trunk, close my eyes
and enjoy images I never saw before

Have you ever really touched a tree, put your arms around it and pressed your ear against the trunk?
You should, the tree shares it’s energy with you…

Inner Light Following my inner light I pluck the young leaves in the unknown forest Overcome the fear of darkness longing for the new life We all know that spring brings new life to the unfamiliar forest, no matter how dark it can be there. New life, nourishing for everything alive. Yet there is a fear of entering that unknown, that darkness. But knowing we need that renewal, I set out. Will you join me, come after me?

Following my inner light
I pluck the young leaves
in the unknown forest
Overcome the fear of darkness
longing for the new life

We all know that spring brings new life to the unfamiliar forest, no matter how dark it can be there. New life, nourishing for everything alive.

Yet there is a fear of entering that unknown, that darkness.
But knowing we need that renewal, I set out. Will you join me, come after me?

A Canopy Of Light Autumn trees A veiled afternoon under a canopy of light The trees have almost completely lost their leaves. But on a sunny day they are decorated with a canopy of light, when a low sun is playing hide and seek between the branches.

Whirling winds of bright morning light Blinding emptiness descends from the sky... It is cold, the sun does not have enough power to warm the fresh breeze. The trees are still bare, but on many branches the first leaf buds are beginning to unfold.

Entangled In Sunlight - A warm day early in the summer, it is windless. The foliage filters the sunlight. Birds sing, but are invisible in the golden-green light. - Modern impressionistic digital artwork by Jacob Berghoef

Entangled In Sunlight

Branches entangled
Birds swallowed in sunlight
Even the leaves do not move
Fragrance of Summer

A warm day early in the summer, it is windless. The dense foliage filters the sunlight. Birds sing, but are invisible in the golden-green light.

For this artwork, I used one of my own impressionist photographs and fused it with a fragment of an abstract expressionist painting by the Canadian painter Jules D .

Unfinished Dreams (2) – m

Unfinished Dreams

Early morning light
Patches of unfinished dreams
float towards eternity

It is quiet in the forest, this morning. The sun is just rising above the horizon, its fragile rays gently touching the trunks of the trees still damp from the cold night. Veils of mist rise from the moss and make their way upward, where the light of a new day awaits them.

Wandering Through The Night - In this clear night, the stars lean on the bare branches of the trees, and the moon lights the pillars along my path. - Impressionistic transformed photograph by Jacob Berghoef

Wandering Through The Night

A cold wind rustles through the frozen
         grass along the road.
In this clear night, the stars lean on the
         bare branches of the trees,
and the moon lights the pillars
         along my path.
If only my love will still be awake
         when I arrive late at home.

Shadows Of Dreams

Walking in silence
between the shadows
of dreams to come

A beautiful spring day, early in the morning. I walk on a path between the fields, it is quiet, except for some noise of the wind and a few birds. The morning sun dazzles me a bit, the dark sides of the trees slowly glide past me. It feels as if I am walking through an alley of dreams that fleetingly present themselves to me.
