Dreams on a wall

"And then the wall rose,
Rose slowly,
Slowly,
Between me and my dream.
Rose slowly, slowly,
Dimming,
Hiding,
The light of my dream.
Rose until it touched the sky,
The wall."

(J.M. Langston Hughes in As I grew older)

Some form of hanging


“challenge:

everything in moderation!
everything in moderation!

response:
he who hangs himself
over spiteful remarks:
a real numbskull!”

(Haiku by anonymus author)

Lovely Lourdes and some garments


“Bernadette, people are searchin’ for the kind of love that we possess
Some go on searchin’ their whole life through
And never find the love I’ve found in you …”

Tintin in Charleroi, fleeing from the elephant

"He thought he saw an Elephant
That practised on a fife:
He looked again, and found it was
A letter from his wife.
'At length I realize,' he said,
'The bitterness of Life!'"

(Lewis Carroll no title)

Solo on an old wall

Solo on an old wall

"But age apace
Comes at last to all;
And a lone house filled
With the cricket's call;
And the scampering mouse
In the hollow wall."
