Patrick Rabe

Red skies dancing


I just can't tell if the wheel has stopped

or if I've forgotten to die,

20th century's over, boys,

and I just cannot say why.


Are people haunted by the bomb

or by their neighbours face,

is it the better way to play dumb,

when you're losing the race?


Fire behind us and fire within,

to whom shall we turn,

when we're not able to win?

To whom shall we turn

when we don't find the key?

Saviour left like some refugee.


But there is life in the trees, in the grass,  in the air,

it is'nt over, He's waiting, He's willing to care.

I'm at my darkest point like anybody else,

blessed are the old ones, we just got wishing wells.

Book by Patrick Rabe:


Gottes Zelt: Glaubens- und Liebesgedichte von Patrick Rabe

Die Glaubens-und Liebesgedichte von Patrick Rabe sind mutig, innig, streitbar, vertrauens- und humorvoll, sie klammern auch Zweifel, Anfechtungen und Prüfungen nicht aus, stellen manchmal gewohnte Glaubensmuster auf den Kopf und eröffnen dem Leser den weiten Raum Gottes. Tief und kathartisch sind seine Gedichte von Tod und seelischer Wiederauferstehung, es finden sich Poeme der Suche, des Trostes, der Klage und der Freude. Abgerundet wird das Buch von einigen ungewöhnlichen theologischen Betrachtungen. Kein Happy-Clappy-Lobpreis, sondern ein Buch mit Ecken und Kanten, das einen Blick aufs Christentum eröffnet, der fern konservativer Traditionen liegt.
