52 Frames – 2017

Mein Projekt für 2017 – 52 Frames 

Jede Woche ein Bild zu einem vorgegebenen Thema erstellen.Ich habe diese Community im Netz gefunden und fand sie auf Anhieb sympatisch. Alle Bilder der Woche werden bei Facebook (52Frames) in ein Album hochgeladen – jeder soll die drei Bilder die im Album vor und nach seinem Eigenen gezeigt werden kurz beurteilen, somit wird auch kein Bild übersehen! Ist die Woche um, werden aus den 500-700 Wochenbeiträgen 52 Bilder für ein 52-Picks-Album ausgewählt.

Die Texte sind in englisch, da die meisten Teilnehmer aus den USA und Israel kommen.

Poetry

Week 34 – Poetry

„To Earthward“, by Robert Frost

Love at the lips was touch
As sweet as I could bear;
And once that seemed too much;
I lived on air
That crossed me from sweet things
The flow of—was it musk
From hidden grapevine springs
Downhill at dusk?
I had the swirl and ache
From sprays of honeysuckle
That when they’re gathered shake
Dew on the knuckle.
I craved strong sweets, but those
Seemed strong when I was young;
The petal of the rose
It was that stung.
Now no joy but lacks salt
That is not dashed with pain
And weariness and fault;
I crave the stain
Of tears, the aftermark
Of almost too much love
The sweet of bitter bark
And burning clove.
When stiff and sore and scarred
I take away my hand
From leaning on it hard
In grass and sand
The hurt is not enough:
I long for weight and strength
To feel the earth as rough
To all my length.
