One Day




I clean up my life


find you in my backyard


smiling at me


picking roses


being in love





Love In Times Of A Pandemic


And the virus came


like a black tornado


it took away


my love


my life


And all I could do


was wake up from the waves


as if I never lived before


as if I had my very first date


with time.





Poem For My Brother


I died several times but never before it was together with you…



My dear brother


through the windows of my past


I can still see your face


Just wish I could draw every line


every shade


save the memory


from the spinning wheels of time


before it fades.




MARIAN EIKELHOF was born in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, in the year 1963. She is a poet who works in her daily life as a psychologist. Her work inspires her to write about the emotional aspects of life. Not only she describes feelings of love, intimacy and desire, but also she reflects about states of profound sadness and feelings of emptiness. On the whole she criticizes dehumanisation and an ongoing process of alienation in human relationships. Marian’s poetry book “a zero hour contract with life” has been translated from Dutch into English and Turkish. For children who are being bullied, she wrote the book “Lekker Boeiend!” (“I am not impressed!”) and together with her sister Els Eikelhof she has written the manual “Feel yourself Okay” for teachers guiding children with a disability. Her poems have been published by several prestigious magazines and Marian is a peace activist defending humanity by attending poetry festivals in Europe and Latin America.
