Dark clouds over our industrial landscape

"Wakonda Wakonda!
Deep rolls thy thunder!
Wakonda!
They speak to me, my friend;
The Weeping Ones,
Hark! In deep rolling thunder calling.
Wakonda!
O friend, they speak to me.
Far above, hark,
Deep voiced in thunder calling."

(A. Farwell in Inketunga's thunder song)
Duisburg (D)

The wall as a wave


“The iron hand it ain’t no match for the iron rod
The strongest wall will crumble and fall to a mighty God …”

(Bob Dylan in When he returns)

A goalkeeper’s memorial


“I played goalkeeper.
I coached high school soccer teams: 
I lost interest.”

(M. Walker in the haiku  A soccer report)

The abandoned stage of the industrial theater


“When a historic building is left to decay, 
A theatre where once, famous names used to play.
Its stage steeped with memories of happier days, 
Of concerts, comedians and actors in plays.”

(G.B. Hough in Ode To A Dead Theatre (Morecambe Winter Gardens Uk))
