To ease the pain of living.
Everything else, drunken dumbshow.
- Allen Ginsberg (“Memory Gardens”)
Chill in the dark,
the day before forever—
before eternity slips
into twinkling space.
Alone with ourselves,
we have no secrets left
to bury, only seeds to sow
for summer fruit.
Two owls are talking
across the yard:
promises of spring.
Dogs bark at the scent
of coyotes near—
neither know, neither care
It is our moment
to find diversions
in search of awe,
the small and the majestic—
to do the work
to ease the pain of living.
All the rest

Cloud-topped and splendid, dominating all
The little lesser hills which compass thee,
Thou standest, bright with April’s buoyancy,
Yet holding Winter in some shaded wall
Of stern, steep rock; and startled by the call
Of Spring, thy trees flush with expectancy
And cast a cloud of crimson, silently,
Above thy snowy crevices where fall
Pale shrivelled oak leaves, while the snow beneath
Melts at their phantom touch. Another year
Is quick with import. Such each year has been.
Unmoved thou watchest all, and all bequeath
Some jewel to thy diadem of power,
Thou pledge of greater majesty unseen.

These pools that, though in forests, still reflect
The total sky almost without defect,
And like the flowers beside them, chill and shiver,
Will like the flowers beside them soon be gone,
And yet not out by any brook or river,
But up by roots to bring dark foliage on.The trees that have it in their pent-up buds
To darken nature and be summer woods –
Let them think twice before they use their powers
To blot out and drink up and sweep away
These flowery waters and these watery flowers
From snow that melted only yesterday.
– Robert Frost

Caroline Walter or Querweltein has hotography as her big hobby – especially the macro worlds are her favourites. In the winter, she thinks about indoor experiments, but in the Summer she goes outside in the morning when the dew drops can tempt her to put in on the square picture. She tries to get to know the world from a completely different and new page and presents her photographs on a photocommunity and on Calvendo next to her own blog.
Beatrice on her Blog shootingvienna loves her home town and hopes that she can share her love for Vienna with more people. We enjoyed watching her site. On July 2014 she placed some selfportait of her on the net > Summer Portraits which you can compare with the 2013 November 3 Photo Challenge – Self-Portrait
With the Spring images on television, each morning we has already a glimpse of it being better weather in Vienna than here in Belgium.
Nice having the opportunity to see Vienna in bloom, whilst the squares are not yet full of tourists, like in Summer and autumn.
