Our Next Movie


Our Next Movie
For Natascha my film partner

If I were a soaring bird.
with a true-blue heart,

I would fly across the Atlantic Ocean,
to Germany…all the way,
just to peck on your window
and make sure you were OK.

I would sit on your shoulder
if you let me in…
I would sing and warble
and brighten up your day
and I would whisper a secret
that if you just wait a bit more,
after way too much waiting,
everything will turn around
and you will be back;
you will be you, Natascha.

Once again you will walk
all around your block
Once again you will sleep
8 hours straight
You will stay up too late
just because you want to
we’re making movies again
and the muse is our mistress.

You will get on your bike
on a fall morning
and ride into those woods
you dream about…
Then after all the instructions,
and the treatments and therapy,
your heart beating easier,
with more confidence,
while recuperating,
getting stronger,
this little bird will invite you
to come back with her
and see her rainforest
and her rainy season
and more birds than you
could ever imagine.
We will cross over the boundary,
Virtual and Atomic Reality
and I will be just me,
giving you, right there,
in the airport,
for the very first time…
a real hug,
with your arms and my arms
around each other.
I’m ready to make this movie;
You ready to shoot it?
Let’s do it!

Karima Hoisan

*Footnote: My beloved film partner
and virtual soulmate, Natascha Randt
is waiting for heart surgery.
If all goes well, soon she will have an
artificial heart pump:
Ventricular assist device (VAD)
She is only 40 yrs old and we have many more
movies to make….

  3. This is a comment from my good friend and artist, Jan Betts:
    “Hi Nat… I just read Karinas poem … And I just want to say… that as extraordinary a team as are you and Karima are at creating machiminas, now it’s time to take that talent to create an RL movie… You two can do it.”


  4. Aww thank you so much Jan..yes I think that we will work towards that when Nat is feeling better:)
    I agree with you Jan..We can do it! InshAllah!!
    For my readers reading this comment, and don’t know what machinima is, I have a category in my blog, dedicated to all the ones Natascha and I have made together.:) Hope you enjoy them:)

    • Thank you so much dearest Ace, for your beautiful comment and loving sentiments. I feel that loving energy from your screen to mine.It’s palpable in your sweet words. Yes Nat and I have been so lucky to form a partnership in 2012 and we have grown and gotten better over the years:) You are right, this is a vulnerable poem, a very personal poem, but I feel safe in this supportive, talented, sensitive group of poets and writers. People like yourself, Ace, make me feel it is OK to share this moment and hopefully as you say, add a few more who will send high and healthy vibrations, Natascha;s way. Big hugs Ace…you are so special.. ❤️🤗🌹🌟❣️

    Thank you SO much, Karima, for putting out the words that haven’t come by me all this time. You put me in a jumble of emotions.

    Dear Nat, I am sorry for being a lousy friend. The whole situation is leaving me speechless. Please, just know that I think of you always. I just don’t want to pester you with questions that you don’t have an answer to. I don’t want to spoil your fun time with reminders of your everyday struggle. So I simply don’t find any words these days. Sending you my love ❤

    • Awww Joey, you are a wonderful friend to Nat and she adores you! You have had your own very hard times, that kept you out of Second Life. Yes, when we meet to play Una or Greedy it’s fun to just enjoy the moment..laugh and compete..She knows you have her in your heart.. wishing for her the very best outcome. Big Hugs and hope to see you tomorrow, if you can make it 🤗❤️🤗

    This is simply amazing poem, Karima. It’s a heart-touching account. You are an emotional person, Karima, and you know how to express your emotions in words too. I particularly liked the phrase..difference between virtual and atomic reality. So nicely written by pouring your heart out. I wish both of you, Karima and Natascha, all the best for all your future endeavours. I’m sure, this one plus one team will be equal to eleven.😊💐🥰💖

    • Thank you so much Kaushal for your perceptive comment..I am emotional and sensitive and all that:) so true, and yes my poetry reflects that,,,as does your own:) “difference between virtual and atomic reality. ” Nat and I have never met in (known as) Real Life..(Atomic Reality) only in The Virtual…we have not even had a voice call and yet we have collaborated together, effortlessly, since 2012 making our videos together.. It’s a big leap, but I know, one we both want to take..inshAllah if she feels better and is able to travel. As I said to Jeff, to be able to sit on a beach together and watch the macaws fly by..would be my biggest dream right now. ❤️🤗🙏🌹🦋🌴🌊

    What a beautiful get well message! I can totally feel the love and energy flowing the many miles to Natascha. And now dear Karima, you, with this piece have multiplied that positive energy into the world and beyond. And I know it was not metaphorical when you said you can picture arms around each other. Here’s to your swift recovery Natascha!

    What a beautiful and loving canvas you painted for you both. I can just see that hug. Bless her heart. I said prayers for her and will keep prayers for Natascha coming. May God bless her and keep her. Such a tender hearted piece. I love the birds. Beautiful. What a precious moment meeting for the first time.

    You take good care of yourself my lovely talented friend. Blessings to you all. Sending my love on the back of a white dove ridden by a red headed fairy gifted with the voice of an Angel. ❤️❤️🦋🦋🙏🙏

    • Thank you so much for your words and your prayers for Nat; you are so sweet and caring Joni HUGS! 🤗 Yes it is my hope some day, we can sit together on a beach in Corovado Costa Rica, and watch great flocks of the macaws fly over head…many of them in pairs. This is all still in the future, but one we really hope comes true… With such beautiful blessings and words at the end, Joni, I am feeling very positive too:):) Thank you sweet soul.. You are so very special ❤️🤗🙏❣️🦋

        Hi Karima you are very welcome. I feel like with the technology that is so tested and safe today that your dear friend will be blessed with healing. I am glad you have a positive feeling about everything. Maybe this time next year you two will be able to follow your dreams and continue working together on your incredible movies.

        She is blessed to have such a lovely and talented friend. It is amazing how we can become so close to people on line or virtual. I have been blessed with meeting both amazingly talented men and some women that I consider to be dear friends. I know your next movie will be more amazing than the last. Sending lots of love, hugs and prayer. ❤️🤗Joni

    • I so agree Joni…the virtual world has brought me men and women who have stayed best friends for a decade (actually in SecondLife, some 14 years) Someone once described SecondLife as “the prepschool for the afterlife” I feel the virtual does offer us a chance to relate, know, and work together, without being trapped in a body… It is very etheral to really know, even fall in love in this manner…I took feel this possible in WordPress..because unlike fb, we can make real exchanges, and all bloggers have something special, something to say besides just rotely checking a Like…We can and do make real connections here. Isn’t that wonderful?❤️🤗❣️🌟🌹🦋

        You are so right. Like minds reading like minds. It is a lovely community filled with people that you worry about, pray for and truly love. I am always praying for my WordPress friends all over the world. In real life I would never have the opportunity to meet such talented people because so many live in different countries.

        I hope you have a great weekend dear friend. Sending my love. Stay safe and healthy too. ❤️🤗🦋 Joni
