Don’t fly away from me!

"Often in the white clouds that appear on the horizon 
It seems that as an angel you fly towards me, 
And hold out your arms never to leave me again.
Ah, tell me, ah, say if there is anything 
that conjures up an image of me for you!"

(Unidentified author in All'amante lontano, transl. by L. Claycomb)
Amsterdam (NL)

A chapel in honor of electricity

“streetlights are signs things are ok…

electricity is running without problems”

Talking in empty spaces

“What shall we use to fill the empty
Spaces where we used to talk
How shall I fill the final places
How shall I complete the wall”

The pleasure garden of a gardener

"It is only a tiny garden,
Where the sweetest roses grow,
Where the birds are always singing
From dawn till evening's glow.
With its wealth of wondrous flowers,
And its sunshine everywhere,
It is only a tiny garden,
But my heart is always there."

(L. Glanville in It is only a tiny garden)

A daughter has been kidnapped for nine months

"'Tis not for the happy; come, daughter of sorrow,
'Tis here thy sad thoughts are embalm'd in thy tears,
Where, lost in the past, disregarding tomorrow,
There's nothing for hopes and nothing for fears."

(A. Hunter in The wanderer)
