The wall as a wave

The strongest wall will crumble and fall to a mighty God …”

A chair in snow is always sad


“… a chair is shaped for just one thing

to hold 
a soul its quick and few bendable 
hours

perhaps a king 

not to hold snow 
not to hold flowers”

Prix et qualité


“All things are created by the Om;
The love-form is His body.
He is without form, without quality, without decay:
Seek thou union with Him!”

(R. Tagore in Songs of Kabir no. 26)

4 little tracks need a roof


“What’s the railroad to me?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows,
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.”

(H.D. Thoreau in What’s the railroad to me?)
Aachen (D)

A painted house is like a poem

“In the end, a finished polished piece…
Makes the artist, happy and at peace.

The work is finally done…
What hard work, finished-Now 
feelings of enjoyed fun.”

(M. Gale in A painted house is like a poem)
