Whispered into afternoon


“Sonne, herbstlich dünn und zag,
Und das Obst fällt von den Bäumen.
Stille wohnt in blauen Räumen
Einen langen Nachmittag.”

(G. Trakl in In den Nachmittag geflüstert)

The church of R.A.P.

"All the old monks' singing places
Glimmered quick with flitting faces,
Singing anthems, singing hymns
Under carven cherubims."

(J. Masefield in The everlasting mercy)
Buizingen (B)

Rusty structures in a landscape

"Man passes down the way of years,
And ruins mark his trail;
He buildeth and the hand of time
Wipes out his structures frail."

(Ch. I. Ives in The All-enduring)

Dying landscape

Dying landscape

“If the day is done,
if birds sing no more,
if the wind has flagged tired,
then draw the veil of darkness thick upon me,
even as thou hast wrapt the earth
with the coverlet of sleep
and tenderly closed the petals
of the drooping lotus at dusk.”

(R. Tagore from Gitanjali)
