things I see while running (4)

noordwijk rising out of the sea mist
somersaulting swallows
five perfectly aligned cormorants
one cocky pheasant

horses at midnight without a moon

Our heart wanders lost in the dark woods.
Our dream wrestles in the castle of doubt.
But there's music in us. Hope is pushed down
but the angel flies up again taking us with her.
The summer mornings begin inch by inch
while we sleep, and walk with us later
as long-legged beauty through
the dirty streets. It is no surprise
that danger and suffering surround us.
What astonishes is the singing.
We know the horses are there in the dark
meadow because we can smell them,
can hear them breathing.
Our spirit persists like a man struggling
through the frozen valley
who suddenly smells flowers
and realizes the snow is melting
out of sight on top of the mountain,
knows that spring has begun.

op het strand moet je op de kleintjes letten...

the dancers inherit the party

When I have talked for an hour I feel lousy—
Not so when I have danced for an hour:
The dancers inherit the party
While the talkers wear themselves out and
       sit in corners alone, and glower.

-Ian Hamilton Finlay, 1961-

houden van....

Houden van dezelfde dingen, dat is toch een vorm van houden van elkaar.
