Along the Summer route

The small boat continued its journey, gliding smoothly, light and rapid on small waves that played chasing each other along the summer route.

A Tale from Nature

Hymn to Nature

“Tree

There is no other way than to become more tree.

Make it up with the soil. The soil: eternally the same.

The stones the same.

The gravel the same.

Nailed for all time to this: immovability.

To move in the tree’s direction:

deeper down.

Can a tree that loves storms become a storm?

The tree can do no other than to rend its crown.

Be shaken through by cries

the tree the nailed-fast soughing

born to be tree

drives its longing inward

into the form of tree.

The dark-shadowed grows broader. Broad

the pillar descends and without vertigo sings greater

towards the cloud its heart of leaves

rest for all that travels

safety for birds and for the seeds

forever in motion

deep in its innermost wood.

There is no way than to become more tree.”

Solveig von Schoultz

The apple orchards around Gripsholm Castle

There is a wonderful flourishing nature around Gripsholm Castle. A good chance while visiting the castle, during Autumn season, is to enjoy the view of beautiful apple orchards in the area.

In Stockholm auf einem kleinen Boot

Segeln auf einem kleinen Boot entlang von Lichtwellen unter gemütlichen Stockholmer Gewölben.

Einen schönen Juli-Monat

Gentle sliding of boats

Suddenly it sounded like music and you could listen to the gentle sliding of boats sailing to your direction on the smooth surface of glistening reverberating waters .

Enjoy the weekend everybody!

Little poetry from Mariefred, in Södermanland, Sweden

“Poetry comes from a spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility” (Preface to Lyrical Ballads – William Wordsworth).
