This Haiku was born...
On 10th January 2020, my home in Bussum, in the Netherlands. it was the night before my lecture "Being is Healing" for "Crohn's & Colitis patients day" at OLVG hospital Amsterdam.
I was busy preparing for my presentation, I noticed the beautiful moonlight in the dark winter sky, light beaming through the trees. I was loured to step out to the balcony. I gazed at the moon, took this photo.
The crisp cold air veiled my body. It was cold but felt warm inside of my body. Would this be a gentle hug by an angel? , I felt.
I felt, deeply in my heart, gratitude and love for my body, looking back my last 15 years living with Crohn's disease, from getting over the life-threatening condition to making a miraculous recovery.
Embraced by the moonlight, this poem was born.
暗闇に 月の光が 優艶に
In the darkness,
Illumination from the moon,
