nika baum : Monika Mori

lyrik | nika baum
In 2008 I started to write poetry and created the pseudonym "nika baum". The story behind this name: Nika is Monika without Mo and in the Japanese speech Mori means "tree" and the German word for tree is Baum :).

Most of my texts are written in German language, because I´m born and grown up in Austria and this language is my Mother Tongue. Step by step I´m going to write more in English although it´s a bit dangerous :)

Below there´s the little story about the Spirit of the Caloosahatchee River. I´m currently working in Austria and Florida and in Fort Myers the Caloosahatchee has become my most beloved place there.

The Spirit of the Caloosahatchee River

At night it is dark here, when the black air spreads over the Caloosahatchee. The water shimmers matt and glossy, it is quiet and seems to sleep. To those who can see, the spirits of the Caloosahatchee appear.

Music of the spheres are creeping into your heart and heal all the sores you have been inflicted from people. Out of your eyes drops the blessed water of the Caloosahatchee and frees you from worry and grief. You feel a hitherto unknown longing, the longing to become one with the river and you walk towards to the happy dancing ghosts. The water bears you and saves your legs, which have lost its way. Until the morning you weigh yourself in the waves of cure and live your real life from now on.
