Black Sheep





summer lake -
a black swan
watches a black sheep







Sommerteich -
ein schwarzer Schwan
sieht ein schwarzes Schaf

bright autumn sky
the eagle soars high above
the doves


In another verbalisation of maybe the same backgroud I wrote this for a friend a while ago:

.. .. ninehundred-ninetynine times tock
.. .. one time tack -
.. .. centipede with a wooden leg

Dear Gabi,
When I was a child (I am born in 1948) my grandfather asked me

'Wat zegt negenhonderd negenennegentig keer tik en één keer tak? Een duizendpoot met een houten been.'

GEERT
..........

Thanks, Geert,
it sounds even better in your language!

(I am born in 1948 too !)

Aber wo ist denn nun das Schaf?

Herzlich
...

But where is the sheep, a friend asked.
Well, it is maybe me with the camera, or my husband beside me, or YOU at the monitor, where the swan is looking at just now ?
:o)

Gabiさま
 黒鳥は珍しいですね。

bright autumn sky
the eagle soars high above
the doves

秋の空は高く
小鳩の群れは里を舞い
鷲は高く高く舞い上がる
