on the blue wall

on top of the mountain,
I stand still
under the ageless tree
in the cold morning
I wave and smile
into the floating


  1. This is my favourite of all the blues!

    Where is this??

  2. i agree. was loving yesterday but there's just something abou tthis one

  3. As the poet said: all the smiles are from you, all the tears from us.

    Rebecca Solnit: The world is blue at its edges and in its depths. This is the light that got lost..the blue of the land that seems to be dissolving into the sky, is a deeper, dreamier, melancholy blue, the blue at the farthest reaches of the places where you see for miles, the blue of distance. This light that does not reach us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is the colour blue.

    The eyes did not fail.
    They believed, even from a distance.
    It was the heart that was unfaithful,
    fluttering like a tattered banner in the morning wind.
    To be lost in the soul of the blue sea ,
    or bound by your green vision.
    Why lament?
    My heart has fallen like a star.
    Then it was fire. Now it is stone.

    oh yes, wonderful picture ..if it needs to be said again. It does.

  4. szerelem, swiss, hi :-)
    I am so surprised, I hadn't even planned to show this image but this morning it just happened that suddenly I felt like this, and now you both tell me it is the one you like most :-) how interesting this is!

    it's in romania, the wall encircles a very old and famous monastery in fact, I will post more from there someday if you like it so much :-)

  5. anonymous, I am happy you came by a second time, thank you... I liked the Solnit-quote, but I like the poem even more, who wrote it? :-)

    but it is so sad.
