The Mountain's Water Curtain Opens by 

Glen coe, Highlands, Scotland.

Step in the Same Stream Twice

finished saying what had to be said
Read into the saying what had to be read

is it now gone? Perhaps cheap at the price
No more to say, no more device.

beyond dreams, beyond avarice
taken what seemed in this a true risk

all was for nothing and nothing was gained
an answer once was for all this but pain

Once was or twice was it all is the same
Out the true feeling tears in the rain

sinking and feeling in one’s own advice
You cannot step in the same stream twice.

    Another exceptionally powerful and dramatic image Ken – this one looks ready to burst into flame where the light hits it. Is that a man I see in the bottom left? Whatever it is, the amazing contrast between that and the mountain gives some small sense of Glen Coe’s grandeur. The poem is just awesome as well – just love that closing line!

  • The line is Hericlitus Lianne. But the rest is mine. Yes it is a man perhaps about to cross a stream. Sorry, a burn. Thank you so much.

    Completely amazing! It looks fiery in places and cold in others, love all the colours and textures. I see the little figure! The words are good, but sad… feelings of defeated emptiness. (How cheerful am I?!). Great work Ken :o)

  • You see quite a lot in my pictures Zoe. A lot that I perhaps am too close to see. You must have had a good art teacher. Thank you so much.

    O wow! Utterly amazing! It has the impression of the gates of Hell opening up to the world… The incredibly enormity of the power of nature – and you have actually managed to capture it! Congratulations!

  • This is the famous Glen Coe. Site of an equally famous massacre. It does feel oppresive at times. at other it astounds with its grandeur. You are very kind with your comments. Thank you.
