Beautiful landscapes for this week’s features!

“To the complaint, ‘There are no people in these photographs,’ I respond, There are always two people: the photographer/painter and the viewer.”
― Ansel Adams

Pragtige landskappe vir hierdie week se erkennings!

Êrens waar vlaktes
valleie geword het
het ’n soet heimwee
in my hart kom lê

Toe mielielande
in sitrusboorde verander
het ’n knop
in my keel kom sit

Terwyl reёn mis word
en koue warm
het ek besef ek wil weer
in liefde glo

Waar bloekoms akasias word
gooi ek die deur
van my hart wyd oop
waar jou drome eens woon…
― Laurinda Le Roux

ART OF THE WEEK/KUNS VAN DIE WEEK


Along the coastline by Elizabeth Kendall


.
What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time, to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
