Poem on Friday: Where is home?/Wo ist zu Hause?

March 2019

Just before the referendum, I had started to feel at home in the UK. Maybe that is why Brexit bothers me so much. It took away the feeling of being “at home” here.

September 2017

A question I have asked many times since last years referendum. Here is my answer from April 2012:

Where is home?

soft hills

full of myth

and beauty

greeting me


hiding away

the pain

hiding away

the horror


hiding away

I have

a long time



tiny soul

has no home

never had!

March 2019

Kurz vor dem Referendum began ich mich in Grossbritannien zuhause zu fuehlen. Vielleicht verstoert mich Brexit deshalb so sehr. Es hat mir das Gefuehl “zu Hause” zu sein genommen.

September 2017

Diese Frage habe ich mir oft, seit dem Referendum letztes Jahre gestellt. Hier ist die Antwort, die ich im April 2012 gab:

Wo ist Heimat?

Sanfte Huegel

voller Mythen

und Schoenheit

gruessen mich



den Schmerz


den Horror



hab ich mich




winzige Seele

ohne Heimat

nie eine gehabt!
