Mittag im September


Es hält der blaue Tag
Für eine Stunde auf der Höhe Rast.
Sein Licht hält jedes Ding umfaßt,
Wie man's in Träumen sehen mag:
Daß schattenlos die Welt,
In Blau und Gold gewiegt,
In lauter Duft und reifem Frieden liegt.

- Wenn auf dies Bild ein Schatten fällt! -

Kaum hast du es gedacht,
So ist die goldene Stunde
Aus ihrem leichten Traum erwacht,
Und bleicher wird, indes sie stiller lacht,
Und kühler wird die Sonne in der Runde.

Hermann Hesse

Delicious Autumn


Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird 
I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. 

- George Eliot

We've a lot of rivers and lakes at our surrounding and thousands of migration birds take a stop there. I've heard the voices of the wanderers often, but they touches my heart again and again. 

September Poem


"The breezes taste 
Of apple peel. 
The air is full 
Of smells to feel- 
Ripe fruit, old footballs, 
Burning brush, 
New books, erasers, 
Chalk, and such. 
The bee, his hive, 
Well-honeyed hum, 
And Mother cuts 
Like plates washed clean 
With suds, the days 
Are polished with 
A morning haze. "

-  John Updike, September


My North - Toewerland



“The world is full of magic things, patiently 
waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” 

― W.B. Yeats

"Toewerland" (means magic land) is an other name for Juist, a very beautiful Frisian Island 
located in the North Sea. This is a view from Juist to the neighbor island Norderney.
