Photo (and Poetry) Blog

Welcome! This is mainly a photo blog, but I couldn't resist adding my other interest - literature, and poetry in special. Hunting down the best photograph to accompany a poem is a challenge I love. I hope you will enjoy it too!

Here's To The Crazy Ones

Here's to the crazy ones

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Throwback Thursday: Marrakech & Camels

Curious Camel at La Pause, Marrakech

Dull weather here in Switzerland so brightning my Thursday with these cute camels at La Pause, and dreaming about sun, palm trees  and bougainvillea waterfalls. Marrakech is always a good idea!

A Little While And Night Shall Come

Autumn by Mihaela Limberea

Let misty autumn be our part!

The twilight of the year is sweet:

Where shadow and the darkness meet

Our love, a twilight of the heart

Eludes a little time's deceit.

Are we not better and at home

In dreamful Autumn, we who deem

No harvest joy is worth a dream?

A little while and night shall come,

A little while, then, let us dream.

Ernest Dowson

I Have Promises to Keep, And Miles To Go Before I Sleep

I have Promises To Keep

These woods are lovely, dark and deep,

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.

Robert Frost

I Said To My Soul, Be Still And Wait Without Hope


I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.

T. S. Eliot

I Will Take My Mind Out Of Its Iron Cage and Let It Swim

Fine October

I will cut adrift - I will sit on pavements and drink coffee - I will dream; I will take my mind out of its iron cage and let it swim - this fine October.

Shirley Jackson’s  The Haunting of Hill House, one of my favorite books, is a very good read at Halloween. Yep, before the two movies and the new Netflix series, there was actually a book from 1959. A pretty good one too, read it!

Happy Halloween!

After the Storm

Dark Forest by Mihaela Limberea

Yesterday I went for a long walk in the woods behind the house. The storm had robbed them of their gold, leaving behind black skeletons wrapped in a white blanket of fog. The murky ground was strewn with wet leaves, glittering scales in the dark. From time to time, the caw of the crows cut the heavy silence of the woods. In the distance - faint church bells.

I Will Take The Sun In My Mouth

I will take the sun in my mouth

I will take the sun in my mouth

and leap into the ripe air 


with closed eyes

to dash against darkness

E. E. Cummings

In The End There Is Only Darkness

Darkness by Mihaela Limberea

Time takes it all whether you want it to or not, time takes it all. Time bares it away, and in the end there is only darkness. Sometimes we find others in that darkness, and sometimes we lose them there again.
