Hopes, dreams and byways



and so many dreams

I have for you, sweetheart

your road is paved

with solid bricks

in graceful patters

quick, but with imagination

relaxed, yet with passion

and always forward


The road you follow now

has too many curves

to my liking



even dead ends

but tastes differ

you sense life

and feel it your way


I let go of your hand

wave and smile at you

and watch while you take

a different path

with head held high

a byway

that in time

will surely become

your highway

Smaug’s Tail

Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Imagination

Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age. And dreams are forever

– Walt Disney


Is this a piece of art? Or could it really be Smaug’s tail? For dragons are masters of disguise.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition


for a larger image, please click the photo

A juxtaposition is the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast. These ‘reuzen en dwergen’ – giants and dwarves – were photographed for exactly that: to lure people to the carnival and circus by showing their contrast.

Travel theme: Wood

Wood. Since my childhood, wood has had my complete adoration. What a delightful theme! Once again Ailsa has come up with an original idea. Here’s my take on the challenge: a wooden privy. It’s not in my back yard though 😉

M.C. Escher

My own entry in the Six Word Story Challenge: Puzzle

The challenge continues, even after completion.


Maurits Cornelis Escher (17 June 1898 – 27 March 1972), usually referred to as M. C. Escher, was a Dutch graphic artist. He is known for his often mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints. These feature impossible constructions, explorations of infinity, architecture, and tessellations. Click and take a look at his amazing art!
