North at easter

We spend some days at the baltic sea again.

Autumn Evening

Dark hills against a hollow crocus sky
Scarfed with its crimson pennons, and below
The dome of sunset long, hushed valleys lie
Cradling the twilight, where the lone winds blow
And wake among the harps of leafless trees
Fantastic runes and mournful melodies.

The chilly purple air is threaded through
With silver from the rising moon afar,
And from a gulf of clear, unfathomed blue
In the southwest glimmers a great gold star
Above the darkening druid glens of fir
Where beckoning boughs and elfin voices stir.

And so I wander through the shadows still,
And look and listen with a rapt delight,
Pausing again and yet again at will
To drink the elusive beauty of the night,
Until my soul is filled, as some deep cup,
That with divine enchantment is brimmed up.

By the sea, in b&w

Some b&w images from the baltic coast

 Listen to a short track I’ve composed for these images, if you like:

Sunday Morning

In the darkness
Before the dawn
In the swirling
Of the storm
When I’m rolling with the punches
And hope is gone
Leave a light, a light on
(Coldplay – Midnight)

Seashell

One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach. One can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few.

Early in the woods

Early in the woods

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

How still it is here in the woods. The trees
Stand motionless, as if they do not dare
To stir, lest it should break the spell. The air
Hangs quiet as spaces in a marble frieze.
Even this little brook, that runs at ease,
Whispering and gurgling in its knotted bed,
Seems but to deepen with its curling thread
Of sound the shadowy sun-pierced silences.

Sometimes a hawk screams or a woodpecker
Startles the stillness from its fixèd mood
With his loud careless tap. Sometimes I hear
The dreamy white-throat from some far-off tree
Pipe slowly on the listening solitude
His five pure notes succeeding pensively.
– Archibald Lampman
