things I see while running... (2)

... een wit reeënkontje in de bosjes dat snel uit mijn zicht verdwijnt.

things I see while running...

... drie kraaien aan de vloedlijn die zich te goed doen aan een onthoofde duif.

night shining clouds

On one of our winter holidays in Norway (Sjusjøen, 2008) we saw these clouds in the evening, after the sun had set. Today I am reading about (the apparently rare) night shining clouds on the Earth Observatory and wondering whether these would qualify as such. 
Anyway, they are beautiful. And next week we might see them again, we are looking forward to another great week in Nordseter. 

Here is the picture of the Earth Observatory, click on more to read the accompanying text:

With age
what the youthful eye
would have studied
until identified—
chicory? bluebird? debris?
Today no nomenclature
the composure
of a chalk-blue haze
pausing, even dawdling,
now and then trembling
over what I'm going to call
fresh water.

boring day at the office?


en dat is dan al de tweede keer dat ik hardop moet lachen om gummbah, het moet niet gekker worden....

a new law

Let there be a ban on every holiday.
        No ringing in the new year.
No fireworks doodling the warm night air.
        No holly on the door. I say
let there be no more.
        For many are not here who were here before.
