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)

Here are a few bridges to cross


 “always bridge to cross
in quiet moments of life
reflect on choices”

(D.A. Holmes in #337 Haiku Crossing Bridges)
Oberhausen (D)

Under pressure of the bridge


“Join me on the bridge to nowhere
Leave your worries far behind
Follow me and we will go there
We’ll end up with peace of mind”

(J.N. Perinacci in The bridge to nowhere)
Duisburg (D)

Marine Route

"Warte, warte, wilder Schiffsmann,
gleich folg' ich zum Hafen dir;
von zwei Jungfraun nehm' ich Abschied,
von Europa und von ihr."

(H. Heine from Buch der Lieder)
Châtelet (B)

How to build that ship?

How to build that ship?

“This is the ship of pearl, which, poets feign,
Sails the unshadowed main, —
The venturous bark that flings
On the sweet summer wind its purpled wings
In gulfs enchanted, where the Siren sings,
And coral reefs lie bare,
Where the cold sea-maids rise to sun their streaming hair.”

(O.W. Holmes in The chambered nautilus)
Liège (B)
